Elastically switch to different storage options such as higher speed SSDs or lower cost hard disk drives. Use what you need and pay for what you use. Upgrade and grow as needs change!

Use Cases


SoftNAS easily replicates and backs up your data from your VMware datacenter to the public cloud. Eliminate physical backup tapes required by business compliance. Archive data in inexpensive S3 storage or cold storage for long-term protection.

Disaster Recovery

With easily configured High-Availability and data replication across public, private, and hybrid clouds, SoftNAS fits the Disaster Recovery strategy suited to your cloud storage architecture.


Data Mirroring to Cloud-Compute Resources

Use SoftNAS as a storage gateway to mirror your volume data to public cloud (AWS, Azure, CenturyLink Cloud) instances for on-demand compute capacity for additional capacity during peak periods, for new projects, or as a more cost-effective way to run your normal workloads.

Data Replication for Remote Offices / Branch Offices (ROBO)

SoftNAS management capabilities simplify ROBO IT management by providing a centralized place to manage and replicate data across branches. SoftNAS connects a local ROBO datacenter to a nearly unlimited amount of public cloud storage, so growing data from each branch can scale easily.
