Get High Availability for Your Business-Critical Applications

Discover the Flexibility of a Storage Area Network

Storage area networks (SANs) enable low-latency, high-bandwidth connections to your data. If you're looking for a long-term, customized storage solution that you won't easily outgrow, SAN is a good option. Begin with as little as 250GB and add capacity as you need it. We monitor your systems 24x7x365 and offer a 6-Hour Hardware Replacement Guarantee.

We offer three fully managed SAN choices: Shared SAN (sSAN), Ultra-Fast Dedicated (NVMe based array) and dedicated SAN (dSAN). Both support block-access storage protocols, while dSAN offers an option for Unified to add CIFS and NFS file-level access. Choose from various storage models, depending on your performance requirements and capacity needs.

Use Cases

Private Clouds

When you need a single tenant environment that is scalable and provides you with the performance, security and control you need, turn to our dSAN team. We can work with you to design a dSAN architecture that addresses your specific needs across OpenStack®, VMware® or Microsoft® clouds.
