Scale Throughput & Capacity Independent of One Another

Unlike traditional file systems that support scale-up or scale-out storage strategies, Stellus is designed for fast-paced scale-through environments, where data can scale up and out efficiently, independent of one another.

80 Gigabytes per sec of throughput

32 Uncompressed 4K Video Streams

3X Increase in Genomics Sequencing Per Day

Key-Value over Fabrics

Unlike traditional NAS block or NVMe-based file systems that support scale-up or scale-out storage strategies, the Stellus NAS platform uses key-value over fabrics technology to scale-through the hybrid Cloud, Core and Edge infrastructures struggling to keep data flowing quickly and efficiently enough to the most critical workloads.

Key-value over fabrics technology enables the performance and efficiency of an end to end key-value based data system for unstructured data. Combining efficient file and object presentation to applications that is disaggregated via high performance, low latency fabric networks to high-throughput, persistent key-value data stores, key-value over fabrics technology is a groundbreaking improvement to storing, managing and accessing large volumes of unstructured data.


Cloud-managed service with predictive media management and client access level analytics provides insight and control into the on-going performance of the application and reliability of the storage environment.

Stellus System Control presents the insights required to keep any storage environment performing optimally, predicting system-wide needs, alerting adminstrators to known issues, and triggering workflows for automated resolutions. The intuitive interface helps visualize performance, while predictive analytic tools provide planning and forecasting, cluster analysis, drive health and offer recommendations.
