OneBlox Architecture

OneBlox is a reimagined scale-out
storage solution.

Exablox’s cloud managed, scale-out, object-based storage appliance solves businesses’ common storage pain points: complicated installation, cumbersome storage management, limited capacity and forklift upgrades. Without the shackles of a legacy scale-up storage architecture, Exablox’s clean sheet approach combines the CIFS/SMB and NFS accessible OneBlox appliance with OneSystem, an elegant multi-tenant cloud-based management service.

Pay As You Grow

With unstructured data volumes doubling annually, traditional file servers simply do not stack up. Their legacy scale-up storage architecture cannot respond to today’s unpredictable scalability requirements fast enough. Hit their scalability ceiling, you must add another system or perform painful fork-lift upgrade—leading to sprawling storage islands, underutilized storage, complicated storage management, zero investment protection, and sky-rocketing storage expense.

Today’s new breed of storage architectures are based on objects. Unlike blocks, an object combines a unique piece of data along with its associated metadata. It’s stored in a scalable flat structure and is not location dependent. This flexible architecture delivers excellent scalability, availability and manageability. However, the problem with current object storage systems is that they're not compatible with your enterprise applications. Most enterprise applications and virtual environments support common file protocols. But, an object storage requires a non-traditional storage access and has inadequate storage features significantly limiting its appeal.

Exablox’s OneBlox combines an object-based scale-out storage architecture with plug-and-play application compatibility. OneBlox integrates a robust scale-out file system over object-based storage. Object-based OneBlox presents a seamless pool of capacity for dynamically scaled out storage. Add drives or OneBlox as you grow with zero configuration. It has built-in enterprise-grade features such as continuous data protection, inline deduplication, and flexible multi-site, bidirectional replication over wide area networks for disaster recovery.
