About SoftNAS

SoftNAS makes high-performance, business-class storage available as a virtual appliance (i.e., a virtual machine), leveraging industry-standard virtualization and cloud computing platforms. Unlike traditional, proprietary Big Data NAS appliances, SoftNAS runs on commercial, off-the-shelf server hardware – the same hardware IT shops use to run VMware and Microsoft Windows Servers today.

Compared to Big Data alternatives, SoftNAS is 80% less expensive to acquire and deploy, and saves a company 65% over a 5-year period on total cost of ownership (TCO).

We provide the business-class storage features and capabilities IT has come to expect, plus a powerful, intuitive web-based administration interface which makes it easy for most anyone to manage storage.

SoftNAS makes powerful, complex storage technologies simple, reliable and affordable.

Storage is the Foundation of IT. SoftNAS is affordable, business-class storage management software for the cloud computing and virtualization platforms businesses and government agencies use today.
