Deploy all-flash infrastructure for all your active data sets. VAST's new advancements in commodity flash management, data protection and reduction deliver a lower TCO than hybrid storage alternatives.
Get the performance of all-flash SAN combined with the elasticity, data portability and features of an enterprise NAS. The VAST Data Platform makes it simple to deploy, protect, and manage containers across cloud, edge, and core.
Legacy architectures weren't built for today's cloud native applications.
As container platforms like Kubernetes have become the foundation of modern cloud-native applications, organizations have expanded container use to power databases and other stateful applications. However, a containerized environment is only as good as the data platform it’s built on. Legacy data stores are being retrofitted with cloud-native APIs, but their architectures remain unchanged. This limits the ability of container platforms to scale cost-effectively, provide flexibility, or deliver the resilience required in today's world of ever-growing data.
The VAST Data Platform is purpose-built to overcome the limitations of traditional scale-out systems. Cloud architects get the capabilities they expect from a full-featured Container Storage Interface (CSI), including snapshots, clones, storage classes, and Helm Chart support. They also gain new levels of visibility into workloads and the ability to resize and scale resources for unmatched elasticity and control. VAST eliminates the need for additional licenses allowing customers to grow their container workloads while harnessing the full potential of VAST's all-flash performance, scalability, and cost-effective archive economics.
VAST made a wise decision to build an architecture that is diametrically opposite of the established systems that came before it. Instead, they wisely focused on next-generation workloads such as log analytics and deep learning. These workloads require massive scalability and high performance and are not a natural fit for legacy storage controller architectures.
A cloud-native architecture to power stateful applications.
The VAST Data Platform is a unified, intelligent system that is designed from the ground up to make AI infrastructure simple to deploy and manage on-premises or in the cloud. The VAST DataBase simplifies and accelerates container-based analytics workloads with plug-in support for query engines such as Spark and Trino. To optimize multi-data center and cloud-bursting workflows, the VAST DataSpace creates a global namespace over core, edge, and cloud, making it simple to manage multi-site and multi-cloud container deployments.
Revolutionary Flash Economics
Programmable Data Services
VAST’s CSI provides the APIs needed to create Persistent & Ephemeral volume claims, QoS policies, snapshots, replicate data, and choose from multiple high-performance connectivity options for Kubernetes and OpenShift clusters.
SAN Performance Levels Over Ethernet
Get 80x more performance over legacy approaches to NAS with NFS. With a series of VAST innovations, NFS, RDMA, and multi-pathing can now saturate all network ports in any K8S host.
The DataStore features multiple levels of QOS to enable scalable service delivery and infrastructure consolidation. Logical and HW-based QOS tools make it possible to either govern or isolate I/O flows from noisy neighbors or whole compute clusters.
Simplify data access from anywhere with a single global namespace across cloud, edge, and core.
Scale Without Feature Compromise
Get near-limitless snapshots, enterprise replication, user and admin auditing, remote monitoring, online upgrades and expansions and so much more. Break the scalability & data management simplicity compromise.
