You know your mission-critical workloads and their storage needs better than anyone else. So you should be able to customize and have total control over a SAN or NAS solution that fits your requirements.
IBM Bluemix bare metal servers allow you to design and manage your own mass storage device with your choice of operating system or deploy OS NEXUS QuantaStor to create a turnkey storage appliance.
With a mass storage server, you have exclusive access to your storage resources.
Choose hard drive types and capacities, so your storage server can best meet your needs.
Transfer data between to and from your mass storage server across our private network at no cost.
Deploy a 2U or 4U server with up to 36 internal drives. Configure it with your choice of hard drives—from 4TB SATA II drives to blazing-fast SSDs. Manage it with your choice of operating system or, better yet, deploy OS NEXUS QuantaStor (below) to create a turnkey storage appliance with streamlined operations.
Get up to 128TB of SAN/NAS under your total control per appliance. Deploy a QuantaStor Storage Appliance—a Bluemix bare metal server with OS NEXUS QuantaStor Software—for streamlined creation and management of your own private SAN and NAS storage needs. The QuantaStor SAN (iSCSI) + NAS (NFS/CIFS) storage system delivers features including compression, snapshots, thin-provisioning and remote-replication.
