Formation wants to once and for all uncouple storage hardware from storage software. Hardware will always be too expensive to compete with software. You don't need a smart box to store your data. You need an ordinary, industry-standard box. And incredibly smart software. So say goodbye to complicated, expensive, single-purpose arrays and join the software-defined storage movement today.
Scale big. Scale fast. Expand your storage from TBs to PBs. Automate processes to deliver new services 10x faster than legacy solutions. All with dramatic TCO savings.
You can have it all. QoS with policy-based control, enforced permissions, and self-service provisioning. Simple, automated, agile.
Reduce your storage footprint utilizing x86 commodity hardware. Slash TCO. Say goodbye to legacy array economics and proprietary hardware. And with our subscription pricing, you can pay as you grow.
Run mixed workloads on a scale-out platform that consistently delivers low latency, high I/O, and high-throughput performance to seamlessly support traditional and modern distributed applications. Allocate, segment, and control performance dynamically across flash and disk volumes.
Consolidate and transform high-performance block and file workloads into scale-out iSCSI and NFS deployments. Improve time-to-market with dramatic TCO savings.
Deliver the power of cloud-native architectures that allow IT to support hyper-scale deployments at a fraction of the cost of legacy storage and cloud solutions.
Improve storage management for VMware and multi-hypervisor environments. Use QoS to deliver consistent performance and overcome the virtualization "I/O blender" effect.

It's almost like FormationOne conjures up new storage from thin air—which is, after all, the promise virtualization brought to the world of compute.
