  • Any RDMA capable NIC for NVMeoF or standard TCP
  • SSD/NVMe devices for caching/log devices
The core block virtualization engine does not use memory for read/write caching of its own. This reduces memory footprint and overhead on the server platform, also in high-availability environment it guarantees maximum data integrity in the event of node failure.
For high performance file service we recommend using some SSD for log devices.
The software has easy to use CLI that can be scripted easily. It can also be managed wth the GUI from standard web browser, requiring basic HTML and javascript support only.
