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.
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 makes block storage enterprise-ready saving you 30-80%.
SoftNAS data deduplication reduces the required storage capacity by up to 20-30%.
SoftNAS data compression reduces capacity needs by an additional 40-60%.
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%.
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:
Predictable performance levels
Pay for the performance you require.
Utilize disk types, block storage, on SSD or HDD.
Spread the IO load across several disks with a variety of RAID levels.
Eliminate the latency and unpredictability that occurs with noisy neighbors
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
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
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
SoftNAS supports high-performance iSCSI in the cloud
