The Scale Out Storage Box

We know that a lot of workload means a lot of data - and keeping that data close to your workload has often been very expensive.  Well, not any longer!  We designed our scale out storage server to be both performant and affordable, capable of storing all those bits and bytes.

The "s1.large" is stocked with a pair of E5-2620 v4 processors, 24 TB of HDD's (plus SSD's for caching and an SSD for boot), plenty of RAM and 2 x 10Gbps network for lightning fast data transfer.  

On demand for just $1.50 per hour.
