If your business requires a stable, reliable and high performing storage appliance then the Broadberry CyberStore storage appliance configured with Red Hat is the perfect option.

Our enterprise-grade solutions have been trusted to power some of the biggest organisations in the world. This includes the BBC, Sky, NASA, the University Oxford, the University of Cambridge, Toshiba Rolls-Royce, Toyota, Google, Virgin and many more.

Red Hat delivers superb performance with a focus on application stability, giving you the confidence to run business-critical workloads. Security is built in and support from a leading security team is available.

You can enjoy the freedom to innovate through access to development tools, container technologies and thousands if hardware, software and cloud partners. There is full support for complete infrastructure initiatives, ranging from virtualisation to emerging technology areas such as cloud-native deploys designed, built and optimised for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This storage software is optimised for multi-core processors. Large SMP support is available for both virtual and physical systems.

It features a number of performance and development tools (including SystemTap) in addition to advanced I/O performance and virtualisation technologies, like SRIOV.

Redundancy is built in and storage is configurable in a number of different ways. The file system structure is independent from the underlying physical storage.

You are able to add compute, storage resources and I/O bandwidth as you need to deal with performance and capacity requirements without having to reconfigure the storage layer.

This OS delivers highly scalable storage and effectively eliminates the need for proprietary storage systems.

Red Hat is a very reliable OS, featuring high availability and maintaining up to 99.999% uptime. More in depth monitoring of each component within the cluster stack enables you to experience higher levels of awareness and control over applications running within high-availability environments. With resource cloning a single command can be replicated across a multitude of nodes in the cluster. The cluster resource manager has a graphical interface as well as a command-line interface, increasing the usability of the system.

Virtualisation guest integration enhances the level of integration between Red Hat Enterprise Linux and VMware vSphere. In the latest version of the OS, integration includes Open VM Tools, speedy communication mechanisms between the virtual machine and VMware ESX, and 3D graphics drivers for hardware-accelerated OpenGL and X11 rendering. These additions combined deliver a deep, high performance environment for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtual machine running on VMware.

Red Hat gives you full control with its built-in security capabilities. Intrusions can be fought through isolating applications in secure containers, severely limiting the damage that can be done by a malicious intruder. Applications can be safely deployed across physical, virtual and cloud environments. Security updates are regularly and rapidly released, keeping your system up to date and protected against the latest threats.

SELinux enhancements feature multi-level security and targeted policies for all services. Directory and security capabilities are integrated, with IPSEC enhancements significantly improve performance and security.

Red Hat storage is open source and you enjoy all the benefits that come with that. Open source solutions are much more transparent, as you get full visibility of the base code and observe all the discussions between the community in how to improve the software, how to cut out bugs and how to ultimately move it forward. With proprietary software, you are not privy to these conversations or to the code base which means there is a much higher chance of you experience unwelcome surprises. Open source software is generally more reliable and features better security, due to the higher level of transparency.

The Broadberry CyberStore range of enterprise-grade storage servers are designed and built for a wide-range of storage applications.

Completely customisable from processing to storage type and capacity, to operating system - the CyberStore range is your go-to storage platform.

Used by the World's Largest Organisations

The CyberStore range of storage servers are used by the world's largest organisations from the BBC, to the CERN project, governement institutions, universities and much more.

Multi
Award-Winning

Year-after-year, the Broadberry CyberStore range of unified storage appliances has beaten the likes of Dell and HPE to be crowned "Best Storage Appliance" by PC Pro magazine.

Outstanding
Value

When compared to the likes of DELL, HPE, EMC etc, the Broadberry CyberStore range of enterprise-grade unified storage appliances is up to 60% cheaper, although using the same quality components such as Seagate drives and Kingston RAM.

Compatible with your
Favourite Software

The Bradberry CyberStore range has been built from industry-leading commodity hardware, and carefully designed to ensuure full compatibility with leading storage operating systems and database engines.


Lower Cost, Same Components

Broadberry enterprise storage appliances are on average 86% lower cost than EMC and 55% lower cost than DELL although built using the same leading-brand server components such as Intel processors and Samsung memory. HPE hard drives are rebadged Toshiba enterprise-class drives, the exact same models as found in Broadberry storage appliances.

Hard Drive Caddies Included

When you buy a Broadberry storage appliance all drive bays are supplied with caddies - so if in 6 months time you decide to expand the storage you can source it freely from the marketplace or ourselves if you wish. The only way to add hard drives to HPE servers is to buy the drives along with caddies from HPE for 200% the price of Broadberry's price.

No Ongoing Licence Costs

Broadberry storage appliances come with enterprise-grade features like IPMI included, whereas HPE charge large fees for perpetual licences for the same features.

Instant, Accurate Quotations

Our website allows you to configure your server online with accurate prices, as opposed to NetApp who require several face-to-face meetings with them before they'll give you a price.

Market Moving Away from Tier 1 Vendors

Over recent years there's been a massive move from the world's largest organisations such as Google to purchase their servers from the likes of Broadberry rather than DELL and HPE. This move is fuelled by the rise in commodity hardware.
