Private Cloud Storage

SwiftStack is object storage created for today’s applications. Its software-defined architecture allows you to serve content directly from your private cloud storage, without the need for extra web-server infrastructure.

The SwiftStack Controller is the industry’s first Software Defined Storage controller. Like a software-defined networking controller, the SwiftStack Controller is an out-of-band management system that powers your standard hardware (HP, Dell, Supermicro, etc.), creating a private cloud storage system.

Flexible and robust management tools make it easy for you to oversee growth and deliver scalable storage to millions of users.

SwiftStack is Powered by OpenStack Swift

It's built on a reliable, highly-scalable storage software project that runs on commodity hardware.
