About SoftNAS

Control Any Data. Any Cloud. Anywhere.™

Data is the DNA that makes every business unique and is one of the most
valuable assets a modern, automated business owns today. The majority of
data, IT applications, business automation workloads, IoT devices and
SaaS applications will either be running in the cloud or connected and
spread across multiple clouds. Businesses need to control any data, on
any cloud from anywhere to quickly meet their needs. They demand a
powerful, flexible solution to fully leverage their data DNA within the
cloud that is not only fast and cost-effective, but that doesn't require
rewriting or re-engineering applications for the cloud.

with its SoftNAS Cloud data platform. The company began six years ago as
the global leader in software-defined Cloud NAS and has matured into an
enterprise software company. The SoftNAS cloud data platform provides
customers a unified, integrated way to aggregate, transform, accelerate,
protect and store data and to easily create hybrid cloud solutions that
bridge islands of data across SaaS, legacy systems, remote offices,
factories, IoT, analytics, AI and machine learning, web services, SQL,
NoSQL and the cloud – any kind of data. SoftNAS works with the most
popular public, private, hybrid and premises-based virtual cloud
operating systems, including Amazon Web Services™, Microsoft®
