Key Benefits of Software-Defined Storage with Quobyte

Benefit #1: Quobyte’s real software storage can be deployed anywhere

Where and how you run your IT changes over time depending on business needs. Real software storage can be deployed anywhere: On your own servers on-prem, on your own or someone else’s server hardware in colo, on the public clouds, “the edge” or a hybrid mix of the models.

Benefit #2: Real software-storage runs on any server hardware

One of the biggest benefits of real software storage is its ability to run on almost any server (or public cloud VM):

  • You can use the servers you like or are used to. Working with unfamiliar or exotic hardware is a nightmare in the data center. When you can use the servers and management tools you know it makes integrating storage a breeze.
  • Sometimes you are limited in what you can put in the data center, e.g. because you get great discounts from a vendor or you want to streamline the data center with just a few server configurations. Software storage fits right in.
  • When you operate hardware “at the edge” you might be limited by space, vendors, or limited availability of hardware in other countries. Real software storage lets you choose the servers that are best suited for the task, e.g. 4 nodes in 2U when you are space constrained.

Benefit #3: Quobyte is easy to install so you get results in minutes

A huge advantage of software is that you can download and install it whenever you need it. No need to wait for appliances to be shipped and racked and stacked.

Benefit #4: Enterprise Storage with Flexibility

Real software storage can turn any server into a storage system — you could say “the software defines the role of the server”. So when you urgently need more performance or storage capacity, you can repurpose existing hardware for storage in minutes.

Benefit #5: Software-defined Storage is the key to cost savings

Real software storage like Quobyte helps you reduce your storage TCO (total cost of ownership) in multiple ways:
