StorageCraft previously announced a distribution agreement with Exablox in October 2016 based on the respective products’ complementary benefits. Exablox’s OneBlox scale-out storage solutions provide customers with:

  • Advanced file serving capabilities for primary and secondary storage
  • Continuous and unlimited snapshots
  • Inline deduplication
  • Compression
  • Offsite replication.

Customers can start with a single high-performance OneBlox, and expand beyond petabyte scale by adding additional OneBlox.

When combined with StorageCraft’s ShadowProtect, customers can comprehensively protect desktops, physical, and virtual infrastructure with fine-grained RPOs and high performance recovery – all in a single solution. StorageCraft’s unique hardware and hypervisor independent recovery solution ensures rapid return to service without the need for recreating an exact replica of the failed infrastructure.

Why Scale-Out With Exablox?

  • Initial investment supports the current environment (cost effective)
  • You can add more capacity as storage needs grow (scalability)
  • Eliminates forklift upgrades (simplicity)
  • Better hardware streamlines system management, facilitate redundancy, and improve uptime.
