Secure, Persistent Storage for Kubernetes

Quobyte is a parallel distributed POSIX file system for running demanding scale-out applications like machine learning or analytics on Kubernetes.


Scalable Performance through Scale-Out

Start with four servers and scale to thousands. We have built Quobyte on a highly scalable, decentralized architecture that scales linearly: You can add more servers to get more IOPS, throughput and capacity at any time. 2x hardware = 2x performance. Your budget might limit your scale, but Quobyte won't.

Deploy Anywhere

Quobyte seamlessly integrates into your tech stack, whether you’re running on-prem Kubernetes, OpenShift, GKE, on the cloud, or any hybrid configuration. Quobyte just works on almost any x86 server.

Cloud Native Storage

Quobyte turns storage into just another application on your Kubernetes cluster. Making administration of storage a breeze. Quobyte provides persistent volumes to consumers in Kubernetes and can run itself on k8s.
