About the Product
Invented in 2012 by Rick Braddy, former CITRIX Systems CTO, SoftNAS is the #1 NAS in the cloud.
SoftNAS converges the foundation of cloud computing – network attached storage – into a unified storage platform, making data access reliable, portable and fast, regardless of where the data lives – in the cloud, on-premise, or across both.
The SoftNAS product line addresses the unmet needs of businesses and government agencies moving from a data center into the cloud, and those who need an enterprise-grade NAS with affordable, pay-as-you-go SaaS pricing.
On Amazon Web Services (AWS), SoftNAS provides powerful NAS in the cloud. For premise-based private clouds running VMware or Hyper-V, SoftNAS is combined with off-the-shelf commodity servers, disk drives, and solid state disks (SSD) that provide NAS storage which is up to 70% less expensive than proprietary NAS hardware appliances alternatives.
