Enterprise Scale-out NAS
Built on Real Software Storage

Quobyte is a scale-out NAS (network-attached storage) solution entirely software-based that you can deploy anywhere - on any x86 server, any cloud. That way you can manage 10s of petabytes of data with ease while spending less time on storage.

Unparalleled Simplicity

Quobyte was designed with one goal in mind: to make your life easier. That's why we made Quobyte so simple that you can download and install it in minutes. Once it's running you'll enjoy the ease of use of real software storage, even at scale.

Scalable High-Performance

Run your storage 24/7 with no maintenance windows - thanks to Quobyte's 100% non-disruptive operations. Perform software updates, repair broken hardware, add/remove servers, run rebalances, and complete data movement all while your storage delivers full performance.

Enterprise Features with 360 Security

Deliver enterprise NAS convenience to your users like Snapshots, automatic provisioning, access from all platforms (Linux, Mac, Windows, Hadoop), and security that goes far beyond traditional NAS: End-to-end data encryption, unified ACLs, TLS, X.509 certificates, and more to protect your data from unauthorized access.

More Quobyte Features For Scale-out Network Attached Storage (NAS)

Policy-based data management

Policy-based data placement
Optimize the performance and space utilization of your applications. Manage data lifecycle including immutability. Reconfigure storage on the fly or recode files for archival.

Flash and HDD

Flash and HDD in the same file system
Quobyte can combine flash and HDD even inside the same file and transparently migrate data between the tiers to help you optimize cost and performance.

HA and Fault Tolerance

Non-disruptive maintenance
Run your storage 24/7 with no maintenance windows - thanks to Quobyte's 100% non-disruptive operations. Perform software updates, repair broken hardware, add/remove servers, run rebalances, and complete data movement all while your storage delivers full performance.

Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid cloud support
Quobyte runs on-prem or in the cloud. With our tools like volume mirroring and the data mover you can sync clusters in different data centers, including in the cloud. Read more about the Quobyte data mover here.

Unified Storage

File and Object Storage in one
Let your users decide how they want to access their data. Quobyte's unique single namespace lets users share data between the two protocols simultaneously. No need to copy data between storage silos and waste resources.

MPI-IO support for performance

Performance analytics
Detailed per-application performance analytics tell you in real-time what's happening on the cluster. This includes information about IOPS, throughput, file creates, deletes, directory listings, and more.

Unified Storage

Unified Storage
Access the same data via any protocol: Linux, Windows, macOS, Object/S3, HDFS, and more.

Optimized for ML/AI

Optimized for AI/ML workloads
Quobyte brings all the features you need to maximize the investment in GPUs: scale-out performance for consistent low latency at scale, optimal handling of small (metadata) files and larger data files, and a native TensorFlow plugin.

Automatic file tiering

Tiering
Automatic and transparent tiering between media types and clusters. Plus automatic re-coding for archival.

API first & automation

All aspects of Quobyte can be controlled through the API, making it easy to automate storage operations from provisioning volumes to charge back to users.

X.509 certificates

Protect your storage from unauthorized access without having to trust the network. Admins can restrict certificates to specific users, similar to a root squash. This allows users that have root access on their workstations to access the storage as just that user.

Security

Quobyte comes with a range of enterprise-level security features for demanding HPC applications, e.g. when HIPAA compliance is needed, or when dealing with personal data: End-to-end AES encrypted volumes, NFSv4 ACLs that are enforced across all platforms or TLS protected communication.

Quotas

Quobyte quotas have been designed for scalability and minimal performance impact. Admins can configure quotas per storage tier for capacity, number of files, and volumes for users, groups, a volume, or tenants. Default quotas can be configured on the same levels, per tenant.

Snapshots and object versions

Snapshots creation and expiration can be configured through policies and by volume (e.g. only for home volumes). Snapshots are user-accessible and are connected to S3/object versions.

LDAP

Quobyte supports LDAP for the management layer, for the file system (client-side translation), and for S3 access keys.
