BuurstTM SoftNAS®

Enterprise-grade cloud NAS

Cloud NAS that ensures high data performance with the best cloud economics


What is Buurst SoftNAS?

Buurst SoftNAS is a cloud NAS virtual appliance that can be deployed on AWS, Microsoft Azure, and on VMware. Running as a virtual machine, SoftNAS provides a broad range of enterprise NAS, software-defined capabilities that ensure the best data performance, migration, cost management, availability, control, and security for your data.

SoftNAS allows you to choose the right blend of price and performance for each workload, application, and job while maintaining the granular control of the underlying infrastructure and power that comes with a NAS.

Enterprise-grade cloud NAS

Deploy anywhere

SoftNAS is hardware and platform agnostic, meaning you can move your data anywhere without getting locked in, giving you the freedom and flexibility to configure your environment to your organization’s needs.


Data cost control

Your cloud storage is expected to double every two years and SoftNAS is focused to help you reduce your cloud storage costs.

SoftNAS SmartTiers moves adding data from faster block storage to slower and less expensive block storage that can reduce cloud storage costs by up to 67%.


Data performance

SoftNAS is designed to provide the best predictable performance, at the lowest cost. With other solutions, increasing performance means adding more storage. SoftNAS helps improve storage performance through:

Private storage

Eliminate the latency and unpredictability that occurs with noisy neighbors


Data availability

SoftNAS duplicates data across zones for optimal redundancy, meaning if a zone goes down, your data stays up and running. The patented solution features cross-zone high availability with automatic failover capabilities to meet the most demanding performance and uptime requirements for your business-critical data. With a 99.999% uptime, SoftNAS is backed by an industry leading No Storage Downtime Guarantee SLA so you can trust your data will be available when you need it, wherever you need it


Data migration

The point and click file synchronization and migration services continuously syncs data to keep it up to date while moving to the cloud, even while data is still live in production. This feature maintains folder structures and access permissions to ensure your end users have a seamless experience.


During a Lift and Shift migration, SoftNAS accelerates global bulk data movement up to 200% faster than standard migration tools, even over a high latency, noisy network.

SnapReplicate accelerates bulk, block-based replication when migrating data. This feature captures storage snapshots of changed data blocks and replicates only the blocks that have changed, making it faster and easier to keep critical data up to date without burdening your network.


Data control and security

With SoftNAS, you gain the control of a NAS, with the benefits of operating on the cloud of your choice. Create a flexible, dedicated, private, and protected NAS environment with the granular control of the underlying infrastructure. SoftNAS offers the resources needed to ensure your organization is meeting strict industry requirements:

Snapshots and rollbacks

Automated, manual snapshots for data with instant rollback capabilities that protect against user errors, malware, and ransomware

Two-factor authentication

Prevents unauthorized access to SoftNAS with two-step authentication

Large-scale unified Windows Filer and NFS Server

Supports thousands of concurrent users with billions of files for enterprise-scale filer service, VDI user file storage via CIFS/SMB/NFS file protocols. Supports both NFS and CIFS/SMB access to same shared volumes

Broad protocol support

SoftNAS allows the use of NFS and CIFs/SMB protocol to the single volume allowing easy access from both Windows and Linux clients

High-performance iSCSI

SoftNAS supports high-performance iSCSI in the cloud
