45 Drives can provide you with a cluster that delivers petabytes of raw data in an open storage platform. The cluster operates by using high availability software that harnesses redundant servers, which provides continued service if any system components fail. The cluster also offers easy scalability, meaning if at any time you require more storage or performance - just add another server.

Our Storinator storage server is an open storage platform that gives you the freedom to run any software you choose including GlusterFS, Ceph, and MooseFS. Our clusters are using servers that run CentOS with GlusterFS and ZFS on Linux running on top, to create one central storage platform. We have many customers using other Linux distros, such as Debian, FreeBSD, and RedHat, but in our petabyte configuration we used the following:
Note: The ZFS file system offers a compression feature which gives users more space than what you purchased - It's like getting space for free.

A cluster is a group of storage servers that work together as a single volume. Depending on how you configure your cluster, you can achieve different goals, such as large aggregate capacity or robustness via redundancy. To create a cluster, one adds a software layer on top of the OS that runs each server. A little bit of configuration, and you are up and running.Read the Blog
