With these new features, the company is removing barriers to the adoption of new technologies – and delivering economic benefits.

While the industry has embraced all things NVMe, its benefits remain out of reach for many enterprises due to high device cost and interoperability issues. The company’s enterprise STaaS solution moves NVMe from a CapEx expenditure to a flexible consumption OpEx item – and opens the door to larger scale adoption.

Additionally, the firm’s platform includes optimized object on-premises storage-as-a-service for next-gen applications such as big data analytics, AI and ML, video-on-demand.

  • New, more compact option for storage nodes in ROBO and edge use cases.

  • Remote clone functionality for improved data mobility between arrays, across geographies, into clouds, between clouds, and more.

  • Object Store enhancements for improved economic efficiency.

  • Built-in virus protection with embedded McAfee AV engine for on-file-access virus scans.
