Get total control over your file shares function and performance with flash-backed File Storage. Create file shares with your desired capacity—from 20GB to 12TB—and provision those file shares with a variety of flexible and power-based options while minimizing costs. Take advantage of snapshots and replication when provisioning with Endurance tiers— featuring simple, predefined, performance levels with simple per GB pricing ideal for most general purpose workloads. Or, build a fine-tuned environment with allocated IOPS from Performance options—ideal for businesses with well understood performance requirements.

Customization

Choose easy to edit scaling options based on your particular size and performance needs.

Reliable

Stay confident with storage designed to protect from data loss during maintenance or failures.

Global

Add file storage to your cloud environment in any of our 7 global data centers.

File storage is an NFS-based storage solution provisioned in formatted file shares on a networked storage device and deployed in NAS environment. File-level storage is easy to use and is readily compatible with most popular operating systems. As the name suggests, file-level storage is designed to support the storing and retrieving of massive amounts of files.

Quantic Dynamics file storage shares provide enterprise-grade data performance and durability, standard. The service is built on an industry-leading storage architecture that seamlessly fuses solid-state drives—ideal for computing operations that need higher input/output operations per second (IOPS)—with flash storage—allowing near-limitless scalability while minimizing costs. Your file storage is hosted in the same data center as your virtual and bare metal servers and shares can be replicated to other Quantic Dynamics data centers over our private network.

Options: Endurance & Performance

Add file storage to your cloud environment in any of our 7 data centers today by ordering shares to meet your needs. Choose between Endurance and Performance options.

Endurance Tiers

Support a wide selection of application needs, including snapshots and replication, and encryption – all at your desired level with simple, pre-defined per-GB pricing tiers up to 48,000 IOPS. Endurance tiers are ideal for businesses with moderately defined performance needs and open-ended IOP quantity independences.

Use Cases

  • Backup/Archive: Provision durable, persistent storage for data that needs to be moved off of local disk.
  • Hypervisor VM Storage: Host a library of virtual machine images for VMs running in your private cloud environment.
  • Mass File Storage: Store and share files with a cost-effective storage solution.

Performance Tiers

Meet and exceed rapid data changes with persistent and powerful storage features that give you more control. Pre-select storage capacities and number of IOPS per block storage volume. Provision storage up to 12TB with maximum of 6,000 IOPS. Performance options for File Storage are ideal for businesses with predefined IOP requirements.

Use Cases

  • Virtual Desktop: Meet the demands of VDI desktop users with file shares provisioned to peak amounts of IOPS.
  • Big Data Analytics: Achieve the read/write speed required by big data analytics.
  • Digital Media: Always have content available for your creators and consumers with specific IOPS and capacities.
