Our unique approach delivers a platform that simplifies software-defined backup and archive storage and provides a platform that can easily grow, almost without limit

Achieve incredible density with HyperDrive, enabling a smaller physical footprint for your backup and archive solution, in addition to reduced power and cooling costs. Implement data immutability features in addition to smart replication rules to ensure your data remains intact and available when you need it.

Rather than archiving to tape, cost effectively turn your data into an always-available resource, able to be mined easily for additional insights and value.

Build a truly resilient cluster

HyperDrive’s power-efficient and compact 1U form factor enables spreading appliances across racks to reduce single points of failure in your cluster. Use replication rules to ensure copies of your data are spread across separate disks, OSDs (object storage daemons), appliances, racks, and geographic locations.

Backup with immutability

SoftIron support for data immutability (also known as S3 Object lock) provides WORM (write once, ready many) capability that also provides protection from ransomware attacks by “locking” a known data set from change.

Ensure data durability

Monitor cluster health with HyperDrive Storage Manager, and ensure your backups stay fresh with automated data scrubs, providing a bit-for-bit comparison of your replicated data, protecting against bit-rot.

Use less physical and digital storage space

Combine HyperDrive’s compact form factor and erasure coding to use less storage space on both your disks and your racks.

Why SoftIron

Task-specific engineering that delivers power efficient performance

HyperDrive has been designed from the ground up for full interoperability with Ceph. This, combined with a form factor designed to maximise cooling efficiency, means that single racks can be densely provisioned while remaining within power limits. Filling racks in this manner, and distributing data evenly with powerful replication methods, can offer dramatic cost savings compared to traditional enterprise solutions.

Fully auditable secure provenance

Where other manufacturers opt to cut costs by outsourcing manufacture to third parties (and therefore passing on the supply chain risks to their customers) SoftIron takes the opposite approach.

SoftIron has in-house, full control over the design and manufacture of our products. Because of this, we can readily enable appliance integrity audits and system verification at a granular level by third parties.

Simplify infrastructure management tasks at any scale

Skilled network and data engineers are difficult to find, and not all organisations can afford to hire one even when they’re available.

HyperDrive addresses critical skills shortages around data infrastructure management, by simplifying common data centre administration and maintenance tasks. By using SoftIron’s products, customers can conduct many previously complex data management tasks via the dashboard provided by the HyperDrive Storage Manager, and our patented “Ceph button”.
