Supermicro® OSNEXUS Software-Defined Storage Solution

QuantaStor™, a simplified scale-up and scale-out software-defined storage solution for files, blocks, and objects

Solution Overview

With rapid growth of business activities and transactions, exponential data growth brings more IT challenges to organizations. How does an IT organization effectively and efficiently deploy a storage solution, manage and maintain multiple non-integrated clusters, and access data faster and turn it into useful insight meanwhile without exceeding tight IT budgets? This has become a critical concern that organizations care about, to which Supermicro and OSNEXUS offer a compelling solution.
