A new breed of S3 Object Storage Appliance


A New Breed of S3 Object Storage Appliance. Effortlessly and Affordably Scaled. 

AURA represents a breakthrough in data management and protection, offering a single-server appliance solution designed to meet the evolving needs of modern enterprises.  

AURA empowers customers to swiftly deploy a “plug & play” S3 object storage repository, catering to both active archive and backup requirements with unparalleled efficiency and security. Built on highly proven 16th generation software and deployed and orchestrated on integrated Kubernetes, AURA ensures absolute reliability and performance. 

Unlike other single server appliance offerings in the market, which are typically limited in their scalability, AURA can start with a single appliance and allows customers to scale capacity and performance via the addition of any number of appliances as required, with no software or hardware-imposed limitations.  Start with 100s of Terabytes and scale effortlessly into Petabytes and beyond without ever needing to take your media offline.
