Build a bare metal server with your choice of processor(s), hard drive configuration, RAM, port speed, and more.
Select the cores, storage, and RAM you need in your virtual server, and we'll deploy it in 5 to 15 minutes.
You need a massive amount of dedicated storage, and you want it to perform well. But you don’t want the added work of configuring and scaling storage volumes as your application’s needs change.
Customize and deploy a monthly bare metal server with OSNEXUS QuantaStor Software, and you’ll get the power and capacity you need with an easy-to-use Web-based management interface.
"The BodyLogicMD team has been using the QuantaStor SDS solution from SoftLayer for more than two years now and has never lost data thanks to QuantaStor’s disaster recovery capability and SoftLayer’s geographic diversity."Read the full story
The QuantaStor Software Defined Storage Platform is a combined SAN (iSCSI/FC) + NAS (NFS) storage operating system built on an Ubuntu Linux server. It was designed by OSNEXUS to streamline and simplify the administration of a large storage appliance with the intuitive QuantaStor Manager browser-based portal.
Deploy QuantaStor on any monthly bare metal server from SoftLayer, and you’ll have immediate control over an enterprise-grade storage platform. With an advanced feature set that includes scale-out management, thin-provisioning, storage pool/volume resizing, integrated hardware RAID and SSD cache management, and volume cloning, your QuantaStor server is ideal for a broad set of applications.
Our QuantaStor servers are tightly integrated with SoftLayer Object Storage, so you have easy data access over NFS for archiving data at rest, and quickly recover that data to your storage server when you need it. And because your storage server is connected to the rest of your SoftLayer environment across the private network, it’s an amazing appliance for backups: Transfer your data from any SoftLayer server in any data center, and you won’t interfere with your server’s public traffic or incur any bandwidth charges.
