The Industry’s Only Object Storage Platform Architected for Active and Cold Data

ActiveScale™ object storage provides a new, innovative approach to creating a simple, ‘always-on’ data repository that scales when and how you need it to—with the extreme data durability, accessibility, and security required of petabyte-scale growth. And with ActiveScale Cold Storage, ActiveScale reduces the cost of storing your cold data sets by up to 80%.

Durable, Secure, S3-Compatible Object Storage for Data Analytics, Active Archiving, and Long-Term Retention

Whether you are developing solutions for life and Earth sciences, media production, government programs, web services, IoT infrastructure, AI/ML, or video surveillance, ActiveScale puts an affordable scalable solution within reach. Now, you can build your own private cloud storage environment - and seamlessly grow your data stores from terabytes to exabytes.

Quantum Object Storage

Featured Benefits

Simple to Manage, Unlimited Scale

Non-disruptive expansion of compute, network, and storage meets the growing needs for billions of objects and exabytes of capacity. Dynamic Data Placement optimally places objects across available resources for performance at scale with no rebalancing.

Always Available Data Access

With rolling system upgrades, an S3-compatible RESTful protocol, and a geo-spread design, ActiveScale tolerates component and site failures to maximize access and productivity.

Lowest Total Cost of Ownership

Save up to 80% in storage costs with Active and Cold Storage Classes. Plus, without burdensome cloud access fees, continually enrich and extract value from your data sets without compromise.

Extreme Data Durability and Security

Advanced erasure coding, versioning, end-to-end encryption, object locking, and ongoing monitoring and repair ensure that data endures for years with up to 19 9’s of durability of both active and cold data.

ActiveScale Object Storage Software

With ActiveScale, performance, capacity, and scaling are seamless. As new nodes are added, network and computing resources come online immediately to load balance data requests and system tasks. New storage is added to the capacity pool and write activity is optimally distributed across storage resources using Dynamic Data Placement heuristics.
