SoftNAS Cloud NAS gets speed improvements and lower costs for customers moving their business to the cloud.

SoftNAS released their newest release of Cloud NAS with up to 400 percent faster cloud object storage performance. Now customers can replace expensive, aging hardware-based storage and on-premises NAS, SAN and file servers with limitless, durable and available cloud object storage.

Common use cases now possible in the cloud with the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) include:

Migration of business applications without re-engineering

- Applications and workloads can continue to use existing data access protocols when moved to the cloud, eliminating the need to modify applications for cloud native storage, reducing costs by up to 10x and saving time.

Cloud backup repository with fast retrieval

- Leverage low-cost, cloud object storage with ObjectBacker storage acceleration for cloud backup, including Veeam backup copies and replicas.

Move Disaster Recovery data centers into the cloud cost effectively

- Easily and cost-effectively move disaster recovery data centers to the cloud, instead of existing I am driving, will reply as soon as it's safe data centers where data tends to sit idle for months or years, occupying expensive real estate and incurring high costs for hardware, software, power and cooling.

Global file server consolidation, replacing traditional on-premises storage hardware

- Centralize on-premises NAS, SAN or file servers in the public cloud, while simplifying management, increasing flexibility, and reducing costs for file storage.

Customers now can minimize their Total Cost of Ownership by achieving near block storage performance at object storage prices from their chosen cloud platform vendor. ObjFast technology delivers the increased performance with the new Cloud NAS to meet customer demands from cloud object storage, including AWS S3 and Azure Blob storage. ObjFast streamlines parallel I/O paths between the cloud NAS and native cloud object storage delivering maximum throughput.

Customers can optimize price/performance configuration with four new Cloud NAS product editions available on the AWS and Azure Marketplaces.

The newly introduced Cloud NAS on-demand marketplace capacities are expanded from 1TB and 20TB to include 50TB, 100TB, 250TB, 500TB and 1PB. Annual licenses can grow up to 16PB.

The full-featured SoftNAS Cloud NAS product editions offer enterprise-class NAS features: patented SNAP HA high availability, block replication, deduplication and compression, 360-Degree encryption (at-rest and in-transit), storage snapshots, RAM and SSD caching and data synchronization.

“With this release of SoftNAS Cloud NAS, customers can take advantage of the full benefits of enterprise grade file services and ZFS data protection in the cloud, coupled with the durability and low cost of cloud object storage at petabyte scale,” said Rick Braddy, CEO, CTO and Founder of SoftNAS. “Many customers want to replace aging hardware-based NAS, SAN and file servers with cloud storage. Now these customers can get the TCO and performance they need from the cloud, enabling large scale workloads and massive amounts of lazy data to finally be moved to the cloud.”
