Scale-out NAS overview

The scale-out NAS storage platform combines modular hardware with unified software to harness unstructured data. Powered by the OneFS operating system, a cluster delivers a scalable pool of storage with a global namespace.

The unified software platform provides centralized web-based and command-line administration to manage the following features:

  • A cluster that runs a distributed file system
  • Scale-out nodes that add capacity and performance
  • Storage options that manage files and tiering
  • Flexible data protection and high availability
  • Software modules that control costs and optimize resources
