High-Performance Cloud Storage Solution

SoftNAS is a Linux-based virtual appliance deployed on public and private cloud services like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and VMware vSphere. SoftNAS can also run on RHEL 8.2 if customers prefer it over CentOS.

SoftNAS provides unified storage designed and optimized for high-performance, higher than normal I/O per second (IOPS), and data reliability and recoverability. It also increases storage efficiency through thin-provisioning, compression, and deduplication.


“SoftNAS has an elegant solution and makes a customer’s life easy. The reliability that SoftNAS products offer, means customers don’t have to get in and mess around with it – saving valuable time and precious resources.”

Rudy Pataro, Founder, MagHub

About Buurst

Buurst is committed to enabling the best data performance with the best cloud economics.

Buurst, formerly known as SoftNAS, was founded in 2012 by Rick Braddy. At the time, Rick was a disgruntled storage customer himself, fed up with traditional on-premise storage and the high costs associated with it.  Rick saw a gap that needed to be filled with his client’s infrastructure.
