Mass Storage Servers

Build your own SAN/NAS.

You know your mission-critical workload and its storage needs better than anyone else. So it stands to reason that you should be able to customize and have total control over a SAN or NAS solution that fits your requirements. SoftLayer bare metal servers allow you to design and manage your own mass storage device. Deploy a 2U, 3U, or 4U server with up to 36 internal drives. Configure it with your choice of hard drives—from 4TB 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.

All Yours

Despite what you were told in grade school, you don’t always have to share. With a mass storage server, you have exclusive access to your storage resources.

Fully Customizable

Are you building a storage server for sheer volume, or do you also need it to accommodate high input/output requests? With your choice of hard drive types and capacities, your storage server can be built to suit your specific workload.
