Exablox Reaches Company Milestone Storing Nearly 30 Billion Objects Across its Customer Base
SUNNYVALE, Calif. – March 3, 2015 – Exablox, the company reimagining storage, today announced that as of the end of 2014 its storage systems now store nearly 30 billion objects across its customer base. A critical component of the company’s sales growth has been strong customer traction across critical market sectors, including legal, scientific research, healthcare and higher education. The company has realized a 13-fold increase year-over-year in both in number of customers and appliances sold.
“Exablox is truly showing innovation in the tight coupling of object storage and a distributed file system,” Said Terri McClure, Senior Analyst Enterprise Strategy Group. “Exablox’s tremendous growth in 2014 is proof that Exablox has successfully solved the cost, complexity, and data protection challenges so common in IT environments today.”
“IT organizations continue to struggle with storage management - a problem that scale-up architectures do not solve. Fast changing business requirements make it extremely difficult to accurately predict storage capacity growth over a 3-to-5 year period. Additionally, emerging business opportunities, such as IoT, only exacerbate this problem,” said Douglas Brockett, CEO of Exablox. “Exablox’s unique scale-out architecture combines our rich enterprise class features, with a next generation object store. OneBlox is an ideal solution for meeting the needs of exponentially expanding unstructured data and the data protection requirements for virtual servers. As a result, our scale-out solution has grown rapidly in 2014 with a good mix of repeat buyers and new customers.”
Exablox’s OneBlox delivers a powerful storage system that enables organizations to scale storage non-disruptively and without reconfiguring applications. Providing features such as a global file system, inline deduplication, continuous data protection, and disaster recovery, OneBlox is an enterprise-class, scale-out storage solution available at a fraction of the cost of legacy NAS solutions. With zero-configuration for nearly every major storage task, OneBlox delivers a flexible, plug-and-play storage solution that enables organizations to efficiently scale capacity and satisfy changing application storage requirements.
OneBlox is powered by OneSystem, a secure, cloud-based management service that enables global proactive monitoring, reporting and management of OneBlox storage resources from any browser.

This reduces configuration complexity and delivers 24/7 management from anywhere in the world, offering service providers comprehensive visibility into their customers’ OneBlox environment.
