Cloud Bursting onto Microsoft Azure Compute without Moving Large Datasets
Extending your existing IT environment just got easier with the Avere Virtual Edge filer (vFXT) and Microsoft Azure, the infrastructure used by more than 57% of Fortune 500 companies. The vFXT makes harnessing scalable compute with your on-premises network-attached storage (NAS) simple and performant. Together, Avere and Azure hybrid cloud solutions give you more IT options with less complexity and cost.
Avere’s vFXT NAS solution is easy to install and manage,and leverages its cluster architecture to deliver high availability, scalable performance and capacity. In a matter of minutes, thousands of Azure compute instances can be deployed on-demand to crunch data with low latency and no data migration.
When demand for compute grows unevenly, cloud bursting with the vFXT to the Azure Compute Cloud provides a flexible, quick, low-latency solution that allows you to quickly offset peaks and take advantage of economical processing times. The Avere vFXT bridges on-premises NAS and cloud computing, caching the hottest data in the compute cloud and returning data back to on-premises storage automatically as it cools.
