Solution Offering

SwiftStack software provides flexible private cloud storage for today's applications, with reliability and robust management tools to make it easy for you to manage constant growth and deliver high-availability storage for millions of users. The software runs on commodity hardware, enabling significant cost savings compared to other storage.

Managed through a browser-based Controller either in the cloud or on-premise, SwiftStack is easy to operate from multiple levels of access. The dashboard interface removes the heavy lifting from configuration, organization, authentication and load balancing. Regular alerts, reports and system stats keep you constantly updated on your storage needs.

Value Proposition

Start Fast, Operate Easy - SwiftStack has simplified storage to fit the way you work. While any distributed storage system is inherently complex, getting started shouldn’t be.

Simplicity at Scale - Keep up with business growth, without disrupting performance or availability. Add capacity and hardware, even heap-on users, while continuously serving data.

No Lock-In - Based on OpenStack Swift, an open-source storage platform that was created specifically for heavy use and unstructured data. And it works with any cloud platform.
