Disaggregated Storage Networking NVMe-OVER-FABRICS

NVMe-over-Fabrics (NVMe-oF) enables commodity data center networks to transform into scalable storage fabrics that combine the performance of NVMe DAS with the efficiency of shared storage infrastructure.

Revolutionary Flash Economics QLC Flash

QLC flash is the newest generation of high-density flash that enables the economic goals of the VAST concept while providing the NVMe flash performance to power the world's most demanding applications.

Shared Persistent Memory 3D XPOINT

For the first time in 30 years, Intel has introduced a new non-volatile storage media that is positioned in the media hierarchy between flash and DRAM. 3D XPoint memory is the enabling technology that makes it possible to field QLC in enterprise environments.

independently scale performance and capacity

Scale storage independently of the CPUs that run the logic of a VAST cluster — only buy capacity when you just need capacity, and performance when you just need more IOPS.

segment server pools by application

Server pools are key to enabling application consolidation onto one scalable all-flash platform, by provisioning dedicated resources for demanding applications or tenants. Pools can easily be scaled up and down as the needs of applications change, thanks to DASE.
