Some Words About Us
Open vStorage is the first no-compromise storage system that combines the best attributes of object storage systems - like massive scalability and data protection – with the high performance and application compatibility of the best block storage SAN systems. We believe in open source and the right of everyone to have the best storage system possible without the vendor lock-in and high prices of proprietary SAN and NAS systems.
The World’s Fastest
Distributed Block Store!
