Persistent Private Cloud Storage


Extremely high performance, open-source block storage for OpenStack, OpenNebula, and Open-SDS. LINBIT SDS is perfect for cloud environments requiring data replication, while containing high i/o applications such as databases

consists of:

LINBIT’s software is tailored for specific cloud environments. For example, we have a Cinder Driver for OpenStack. Simply choose DRBD as your block storage through Cinder to begin using LINBIT SDS.
LINBIT has similar plugins for other popular cloud platforms. Utilizing commodity hardware with open-source software, you can turn cloud storage into an affordable, distributed network storage. With LINBIT SDS, and without proprietary license fees, you can create replicated block storage for your IaaS or PaaS system.

LINBIT Software-Defined Storage (SDS) enables efficient administration of resilient storage clusters built on standard off-the-shelf hardware. LINBIT enables the replacement of traditional storage infrastructures with a solution that decreases costs, matches performance and resiliency, and increases scalability for your private cloud.
