Object storage is deployed on flash-based systems and is now becoming the primary storage for modern applications. The cloud-native environment demands adaptability, portability and efficiency – attributes that traditional storage solutions struggle to match. Artesca is a solution of its kind, purpose-built for developers while meeting the security demands of the enterprise.

With Artesca, application owners and DevOps staff can manage persistent storage infrastructures from anywhere, without being forced into becoming storage experts.

Unlike other storage solutions on the market, Artesca is:

  • Lightweight: It is easy to install, doesn’t require any Linux skills and can start out as small as a single server and scale out.

  • True enterprise-grade: It is adaptive and sustainable across future platforms and technology innovations. A single pane of glass view enables control of multi)cloud data, workflow management, API and user-driven metadata search, and comprehensive storage analytics. Dual-layer erasure coding with minimum overhead ensures data protection.

  • Cloud-native: It powers an app-centric, cloud-native, modern world by supporting multiple Kubernetes distributions and bare metal servers from edge-to-core/core-to-edge or on-premises to public cloud.

  • Modern object storage: Fast application-centric primary storage for new or emerging workloads delivers high performance with low latency and 10s of GB/s of throughput to meet the needs of AI/ML, big data analytics and edge applications. It is entirely API-driven, so operations can be automated.
