Leaders in Enterprise Open-Source Network Attached Storage
We know how important a reliable NAS is to your organization. We also know that being locked into expensive contracts, strict warranties, and costly hardware is a nonstarter. The Storinator's open design provides a storage solution configured to best suit your organization's needs. It also provides the fastest throughput with read/write speeds over 3 GB/s.

An enterprise network-attached storage (NAS) server, is a device that is connected to your computer, which serves as a central location for data storage. You could require a NAS if you run out of storage on your desktop or if you know you are going to need a large amount of storage in the future. A NAS is connected to the Ethernet port on your network and will show up the same as a single drive on your computer. This enables multiple computers on a network to share and access files, stream video and audio, and backup data from one central device. It also has more storage than a single drive - up to hundreds of terabytes.
Our NAS solution includes a storage server (Storinator), one or more hard drives, a processor, RAM – and an opensource software of your choice for your Operating System (OS) which manages access and your network connection.
Our network attached storage server is great for any business size from the enterprise to the small business to boost productivity and minimize IT overhead. It also has the ability to scale-out when more storage is needed. You even have the ability to link together multiple NAS servers to a scale-out cluster, with the ability to achieve petabytes of storage.
A 45Drives storage engineer will set-up your network attached storage according to your needs, so your server will be properly configured, fully-functional and ready to go when it arrives at your door. If you would rather wait until your server arrives at your location one of our Support Engineers will walk you through the configuration so you will have the best knowledge to maintain your new storage server.
A 45Drives Engineer will take the following steps:
If you choose NOT to have 45Drives configure your server, you will still receive a fully assembled and tested Storinator pre-loaded with your chosen OS.
Consider your current network infrastructure and what speed networking it supports, as you may need to factor upgrading switches and cables into the cost of a NIC upgrade. Often clients with multiple video editors working directly off their NAS choose to upgrade their networking to at least 10GbE because it will easily be saturated. Fiber is also an option for those that want the fastest possible speeds.
Our support team is here for you from decision making and design to deployment and maintenance, ensuring you get the right storage solution for your needs. We support both, our hardware and the open source software we configured on your server.
Our network attached storage server is great for any size organization. From the enterprise business to the small business a NAS can boost productivity and minimize IT overhead. It also has the ability to scale-out when more storage is needed. You even have the ability to link together multiple NAS servers to a single unit scale-out cluster, with the ability to achieve petabytes of storage.
You can store both large and small files, our network attached storage server is great for any business size from the small business to enterprise companies looking to store data, boost productivity and minimize IT overhead.
Think about your current storage capacity. At what rate is your storage server filling now and how much is that rate increasing?
Think about the timeframe you want to purchase storage for. With all this information you should be able to determine what useable capacity you’ll need over the lifetime of your NAS.
Please note: When we talk about raw capacity, we mean the capacity of the Network Attached Storage (NAS) plus the number of hard drives, multiplied by the size of the hard drive. For example, if you have a Storinator S45 populated with 10TB drives that gives you 450TB of raw storage.
It’s important to remember that the useable capacity of the NAS is less than the raw capacity. The useable capacity is affected by things like RAID level and which operating system (OS) you use. Which leads to another question you will want to ask yourself.
