Building a QuantaStor server is as easy as ordering any other Bluemix bare metal server. Load up a monthly bare metal server with your choice of hard drives to reach your desired storage capacity and select the OSNEXUS QuantaStor software option that best fits your configuration. Submit your order, and your QuantaStor storage server will be online and ready for your data in 2-4 hours.

How Does it Work?

The QuantaStor Software Defined Storage Platform is a combined SAN (iSCSI/FC) + NAS (NFS) storage operating system built on an Ubuntu Linux server. It was designed by OSNEXUS to streamline and simplify the administration of a large storage appliance with the intuitive QuantaStor Manager browser-based portal

Deploy QuantaStor on any monthly bare metal server from Bluemix, and you’ll have immediate control over an enterprise-grade storage platform. With an advanced feature set that includes scale-out management, thin-provisioning, storage pool/volume resizing, integrated hardware RAID and SSD cache management, and volume cloning, your QuantaStor server is ideal for a broad set of applications.

Our QuantaStor servers are tightly integrated with IBM Cloud Object Storage Standard Regional, so you have easy data access over NFS for archiving data at rest, and quickly recover that data to your storage server when you need it. And because your storage server is connected to the rest of your Bluemix environment across the private network, it’s an amazing appliance for backups: Transfer your data from any Bluemix server in any data center, and you won’t interfere with your server’s public traffic or incur any bandwidth charges.
