Eliminate islands of data infrastructure with a single platform built to deliver the integrated data management that can only come from engineering the entire protocol layer in house.
Sold as software, delivered and supported as an appliance.
On-Premise, VAST appliances are designed to find the optimized balance of performance and capacity. We collaborate with leading enterprise technology manufacturers to specify resilient, scalable, and efficient equipment. Our scalable cluster architecture allows for mix and match across generations of flash and storage compute infrastructure.

A next-generation platform designed for the enterprise.
Multi-Protocol by Design
NFS V3, V4
Parallel file system speed with NAS simplicity. VAST accelerated NFS removes the limitations of legacy NFS without the need for proprietary clients so that everyone can support next-gen AI-driven workloads.
SMB 2.1, 3
Support enterprise workloads with multi-channel support for non-disruptive workloads and high performance. VAST's SMB protocol was designed to take full advantage of the DASE architecture so your most demanding applications run faster and smoother than ever.
High-performance object storage for modern data analytics and massive scale workloads.
Programmatically create persistent and ephemeral K8S volumes. VAST’s Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver provides a standardized interface that can be used by a Kubernetes cluster to provision persistent volumes.
Achieve predictable, high performance to meet any machine-learning and deep-learning workload requirements with VAST support for NVIDIA's GPUDirect® Storage.
IPv4 & IPv6
Implement next-generation workloads and future-proof your infrastructure with VAST.
Enterprise by Nature
Enable mission-critical and data-intensive enterprise production environments to consolidate workflows, unlocking fast access to all data.
Exabyte Scale Namespace
Independently scale performance and capacity in a single massive namespace.
LDAP, Active Directory
Secure multi-tenancy with multiple authentication sources.
Multi-protocol access to any data with a unified permission model.
Metadata Index in the VAST Catalog
A built-in, high-speed index of file with point-in-time granularity.
Directory and User Quotas
Optimize your resource utilization with granular quotas.
Snapshots and Object Immutability
Protect data from ransomware and insider threats with indestructible storage.
Similarity-Based Data Reduction
A breakthrough global data reduction algorithm that redefines the economic equation of flash.
Capacity and Performance Analytics
Monitor your workloads via the intuitive VAST UI or export metrics to the log analytics tool of your choice.
Distributed / Multiprotocol File Locking
Ensure consistency of operations across the cluster.
Support multiple securely isolated tennets across a common infrastructure and eliminate resource contention issues.
Quality of Service (QoS)
Create optimized QoS policies for service levels with on the fly flexibility.
S3 Lifecycle Policy
Implement data management policies with cloud workflows.
Monitor your VAST cluster with granular protocol and admin access audit logging.
Infrastructure Built for Scale & Efficiency
VAST innovations combine to deliver compounded levels of infrastructure efficiencies that make it possible to build an always-on, ultra resilient flash cloud.
Transactional Storage System
Achieve the transactional guarantees of an ACID database with the performance of a parallel file system and the scale of an object store.
Distributed Persistent Metadata
Non-volatile, cluster-wide metadata management for superior resilience, scalability, and performance.
Global Hyperscale Flash Translation
Unleash the potential of ultra-dense, low-cost hyperscale flash for any workload while realizing a decade of SSD durability.
Encryption at Rest and Flight
Protect data in transit and stored on flash with advanced encryption.
Rapid Rebuild Erasure Coding
Revolutionary erasure coding that rebuilds in a fraction of the time of Reed-Solomon codes with as little as 2.7% overhead.
All controllers fail gracefully to remaining controllers. SSDs rebuild against remaining free space even before failed devices are replaced.
Dedicated pools of CNodes provide CPU-based QoS boundaries, serve common data across disparate networks and provide additional security by limiting access on a per-share basis across specific pools.
Asynchronous Replication with Automated Failover
Take control of disaster recovery workflows with automated synchronization and reversed replication.
Leverage remote S3 storage for system backups.
Secure administrative access with multi-factor authentication.
