Avere vFXT for Azure
Faster, more accessible data storage for high-performance computing at the edge
Run high-performance, file-based workloads in Azure
As compute demand rises, on-premises resources can quickly become strained, bringing important work to a halt. Move excess capacity safely to Azure while leaving large datasets in your network-attached storage or in Azure Blob Storage for a cloud NAS solution.
Avere vFXT for Azure lets you protect your infrastructure investment while easily managing new demands. Run your NFS and SMB workloads without latency, and scale them to your needs using an intelligent cache to keep your data placement efficient, flexible and cost-effective.
- Process large datasets – terabytes to petabytes – the cloud, quickly and easily
- Access scalable infrastructure when you need it
- Run file-based workloads in Azure using on-premises NAS or Azure Blob Storage
Automatically identify and cache active data needed for your most demanding workloads, minimising storage latency for heavy-read environments.
File-based applications access Azure compute resources from either on-premises network-attached storage (NFS and/or SMB) or Azure Blob storage (REST).
Turn it on or turn it off. Avere vFXT gives you the scale and flexibility of Azure at your fingertips to support even your most critical workloads.
