Stellus Data Platform


High-Performance File Storage


Stellus provides a modern, highly performant file storage platform that enables hyperscale throughput for digital enterprises. Based on the industry’s first key-value over fabrics technology and exceptionally suited for unstructured data, Stellus Data Platform eliminates the need for file and block conversions, global data mapping, and global cache management. It delivers consistent and fast performance, exceeding that of the fastest competing solutions that rely on legacy architectures, like network attached storage.

Stellus Data Platform is built from the ground up to serve modern parallel workloads including Cognitive Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence applications that are driving performance and capacity requirements on top of today’s expanding unstructured data growth.

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 Data 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, with no NAS sprawl.

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 ground breaking improvement to storing, managing and accessing large volumes of unstructured data.


Scale-Up, Scale-Out Not Enough – Introducing Scale-Through

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.

When selecting or upgrading a system, add a Key-Value Store (KVS) to expand capacity and a Data Manager (DM) to increase total application throughput.

- Performance varies based on workloads’ characteristics.


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.
