Exablox Introduces Inline Compression to its OneBlox Software Portfolio
SUNNYVALE, Calif. - September 22, 2015 - Exablox, the award winning company re-imagining storage, today announced inline compression enabling customers to deploy on-premises scale-out storage for the life of the product. With the introduction of inline compression, complementing existing inline deduplication, OneBlox 4312 dramatically improves storage utilization and enables typical data reduction ratios of 6:1*. These features, combined with OneBlox's continuous data protection, remote replication and cloud-based management provide a flexible and powerful storage solution affordable to any enterprise.
The cost savings and effective capacity improvements are the result of Exablox's innovative inline data reduction, including deduplication and compression, boosting the effective storage capacity of the OneBlox Ring to more than 1.3 PB utilizing 8TB drives. Exablox was the first storage vendor to support HGST's Ultrastar Helium 8 TB drives in Q1 2015 and continues to lead the industry by supporting more than 50 different types of hard drives ranging from 1TB to 8TB.
In addition to the significant OneBlox cost advantages, Exablox's approach to scale-out storage offers more simplicity, security and agility vs. leading cloud vendors by employing a similar object-based, scale-out architecture. However, by integrating with applications through common NFS and SMB file systems, customers can now enjoy the benefits of a flexible cloud storage infrastructure in their own data center and purchase storage only when necessary and not be saddled with the economic burden of purchasing storage 24 to 36 months in advance.
"Exablox believes that companies should not be forced into accepting a one-size-fits-all model." said Douglas Brockett, CEO of Exablox. "Combining enterprise-class features with pay-as-you grow economics that beat cloud storage by an order of magnitude, Exablox is providing its customers with the best of both worlds."
*The typical data reduction ratio estimate is based on OneSystem global reporting of Exablox customers' data reduction
