HA Block and Object Storage

High performance storage is key to a healthy Cloud. SATA and NMVe SSDs. Spinners for large disk needs.

Start Small, Scale Massive

private-cloud-core

Each Flex Metal Cloud deployment starts with 3 identical servers to provide Compute, HA Storage, HA private networking, and HA Cloud Control Plane services.

This unique hyper-converged platform allows for optimal costs by keeping services together at the beginning. As your needs grow, there are easy options for nearly unlimited scaling including moving the Compute and Storage to their own servers.

See Hyper-Converged Infrastructure for additional hardware details or see Global IaaS Deployment for scaling possibilities.
