QuantaStor architecture guide
A guide to setting up storage in your VMware environment.
Mass storage servers
You know your mission-critical storage needs better than anyone else. IBM Cloud bare metal servers hand over total design and customization control directly to you. Manage your own mass storage device with the OS of your choice or deploy a turnkey appliance.
Mass storage server features
Keep it to yourself
Maintain exclusive access to all of your storage resources.
Customize to the max
Choose hard drive types and capacities, so your storage server can best meet your needs.
Stay connected to your fleet
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 4 TB SATA II drives to blazing-fast SSDs. Manage it with your choice of operating system or, better yet, deploy OS NEXUS QuantaStor to create a turnkey storage appliance with streamlined operations.
Get up to 128 TB of SAN/NAS under your total control per appliance. Deploy a QuantaStor storage appliance — an IBM Cloud 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.
