SoftNAS is a Linux-based virtual appliance that’s deployed on modern hypervisor-based systems. SoftNAS data management software runs as a virtual machine, providing a broad range of software-defined capabilities, including data performance, cost management, availability, control, and security.

Architecture and Technology

SoftNAS runs as a Linux®-based, 64-bit CentOS redistribution guest OS treated as a VM in a virtual server environment. In many use cases, storage devices are attached to the physical hardware layer, then presented to SoftNAS as a VM running Linux.

SoftNAS operates on an industry-standard Linux platform and uses a derivative of the Zettabyte File System® (ZFS), an open-source project originally released on OpenSolaris® by Sun Microsystems, Inc. This enables SoftNAS to leverage many ZFS features and add layers of functionality for NAS solutions in virtual and cloud computing. An Apache webserver provides robust, secure access along with Secure Shell® (SSH). Storage is accessible via TCP/IP protocols including NFS v3, NFS v4, SMB/CIFS (Microsoft® Windows File Shares), and iSCSI.

Also integrated into SoftNAS is Apache NiFi technology, providing robust and scalable directed graphs of data routing, transformation, and system mediation logic. Its packaged with a primary administration interface called SoftNAS StorageCenter™, which provides commercial-grade storage administration and management functionalities for businesses of all sizes.
