Persistent Public Cloud Storage

The revolutionary Block Storage Replication tool. Companies implement software-defined storage (SDS) in order to easily provision and manage data storage, independent of the underlying hardware. LINBIT’s groundbreaking SDS product ties together data availability, performance, and scale, making it perfect for your cloud storage environment.


As a provider, your clients demand a high performance, low latency cloud environment. You need to minimize CPU utilization to scale appropriately. Your infrastructure must be resilient and cost effective to remain competitive.

Leveraging LINBIT SDS software, you can build your cloud on common off-the-shelf hardware; whether those servers are spinning disk, all-flash, or hybrid. These setups can be hyperconverged or dedicated storage/compute servers. LINBIT’s robust open-source software-based platform enables the deployment of large server clusters configurable to your specific use-case.

Enterprise virtualization

From your storage’s point of view, an enterprise virtualization system has the same requirements as a cloud environment. Your storage needs to tolerate hardware failures. LINBIT SDS will provide this resilient storage.

Storage for cloud environments

Storage needs to be easy to provision, fully accessible, and as reliable as possible. Ideally, you can achieve this without expensive license fees from storage vendors.

Commodity hardware

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 highly available block storage for VMs and/or containers inside your IaaS or PaaS system.

How to use NFS Failover
in Microsoft Azure

LINBIT & Microsoft worked together to provide quickstart templates for HA NFS in the Azure Cloud:… Linux HA Clustering in Microsoft Azure: Linux HA Clustering in the cloud is a little different than it is in your own data centers. This video describes the nuances of clustering in the Azure cloud, and also demonstrates a NFS export failover in Azure.
