BUILDING ON A NEW FOUNDATION

We’ve rethought how storage should be built by combining new technologies and
exploiting them in ways never thought possible.

INTRODUCING THE VAST DASE ARCHITECTURE

Dis-Aggregated, Shared Everything Architecture • Exabyte-Scale NFS and S3 Scale-Out NVMe Storage

SERVER SERVER SERVER SERVER SERVER SERVER x 10,000 sub-millisecond access to 100,000s of S3 and NFS clients NVMe Fabric

Uncompromising Scale

Each stateless VAST Server has access to all of the cluster’s devices,
they operate and scale independently.

Servers are loosely coupled in the namespace and all have equal access to the shared, persistent NVMe storage over NVMe over Fabrics. As a result, each server is loosely coupled and does not need to coordinate with any other server to service IO requests. By eliminating cluster cross-talk, the VAST DASE Architecture makes scaling easier than has ever been possible until now.

Uncompromising Scale

Storage can be scaled independently of the CPUs that run VAST logic, making it possible to only buy capacity when you just need capacity, and performance when you just need performance.

UNCOMPROMISING RESILIENCE

VAST’s new Erasure Codes make the system more resilient while it scales,
while data protection overhead (and cost) go down to just 2%.

Uncompromising Resilience

Every write is immediately persisted to SCM over the Fabric, eliminating the need for batteries or cache coherence. Because VAST’s servers are shared-everything and stateless, all but one of the servers can fail without losing availability.

Uncompromising Resilience

Because Servers are stateless and enclosures are highly available, there is never a network-level storage reconstruction when a server goes offline. Resilient clusters can be built from as little as one HA NVMe Enclosure.

SW-Defined Cloud Storage

Provide tenants and applications the performance and security benefits of by pooling server infrastructure while also enjoying the utilization and operational benefits of shared cloud infrastructure.

Low-cost, stateless servers can be pooled and dynamically assigned to customer VLANs/Subnets to provide quality of service

VAST multi-tenancy model can isolate specific tenant data to specific networks to provide security isolation.

SW-Defined Cloud Storage

VAST SW is built entirely in stateless containers. This modern approach to composing storage resources in a data center allows customers to auto-scale up and down VAST servers to adapt to application requirements in real time.

SW-Defined Cloud Storage

VAST SW can even run within an application server as a dedicated “micro” file server.
This brings the performance of NVMe over Fabrics all the way up to the application layer while still
providing the simplicity of NFS and S3.
