Through OpenStack Cinder, Maxihost offers a highly available and scalable persistent storage in SSD disks, providing storage resources that can be consumed by computing instances.
Maxihost Block Storage virtualizes the management of block storage devices and provides end users with a self service API and dashboard to request and consume those resources without requiring any knowledge of where their storage is actually deployed or on what type of device.
Used space in databases and applications tend to grow over time, eventually requiring that storage capacity is increased. Adding physical storage or upgrading to a bigger server can be costly and an unscalable way to solve capacity issues. Cloud Block Storage is a reliable and highly performant way to expand storage for your applications hosted on cloud servers.
Maxihost Cloud Block Storage is distributed in Enterprise SSD disks. It’s the most reliable way to ensure that even the most demanding workloads perform consistently.
Maxihost Cloud Block Storage is a massively scalable distributed storage system. It relies on a placement algorithm that stores data across your storage cluster. Through this automated process, data is replicated three times in 3 separate failure domains thus greatly increasing availability of your data from anywhere, anytime.
Maxihost Cloud Block Storage is compatible with the most used storage protocols available:
— Block storage (RBD)
— Object storage (Rados Gateway)
— File system (Cephfs)
From 500 Gigabytes to several Petabytes, Cloud Block Storage ensures that your infrastructure will no longer require intense storage forecast planning: add storage space according to your current needs in a matter of minutes right from the Maxihost Cloud Manager.
Attach SSD Block Storage volumes to your servers.
Pay only for provisioned capacity and nothing more.
