Building a Cloud
Blockbridge provides a flexible, scalable and secure foundation for your cloud architecture. Our software-only solution delivers fine-grained multi-tenancy, comprehensive security and extensive management features. We also provide deep integration with OpenStack.
Blockbridge delivers complete control over storage operation and management with APIs and tools that are powerful and simple to use. Streamline service delivery and automate development processes with isolation and control. Deliver self-service storage for IT professionals, developers and DBAs.
A fundamental shift in data center architecture and deployment is under way. The goal is to abstract virtual infrastructure from the supporting hardware to improve management and lower costs. Blockbridge software provides the scale, performance and features that you need while changing the economics of storage.
Securing data and applications in modern IT infrastructure is an ongoing challenge: it’s so much more than just encrypted hard drives. Blockbridge builds security into the core of our storage. Our software automates complex security functions and enables new ways to protect against hackers, insiders and malware.
Blockbridge is a complete storage software solution for the enterprise. Our software delivers fine-grained multi-tenant elastic block storage. We solve management, storage and security challenges for modern storage infrastructure.
What is Elastic Storage?
Elastic storage is a system or service that enables on-demand discovery, provisioning, configuration and reclamation of storage resources. It is an essential element of automated infrastructure and cloud deployments.
How is Blockbridge used?
Blockbridge is commonly deployed as elastic block storage for a cloud or service-oriented infrastructure. Customers also use our security and management capabilities for secure storage, disaster tolerance, self-healing systems and intrusion detection.
Blockbridge is Software?
Yes. Our software transforms commodity hardware into an elastic iSCSI storage service. We’ve built a tightly integrated software stack of segmentation and virtualization technologies specifically designed to address the management, storage and security challenges of elastic environments.
What about Hardware?
Blockbridge software operates on any x86_64 based platform (bare-metal or virtual). You can deploy any block based technology: spinners, ssd, nvme, nvdimm, internal storage, DAS, SAN, etc. You can leverage existing storage investments as well as mix technologies, capacities, and vendors.
Does it scale?
A single “network” scales to thousands of geographically distributed nodes. It’s easy to achieve massive capacity, IOPS and throughput. Most importantly, adding nodes does not scale the failure domain. In hyperscale environments, multiple networks may be unified to support tens of thousands of nodes under common management.
Software-Defined Storage is basically the concept of utilizing software that delivers enterprise storage functionality on commodity hardware. This approach is compelling to many customers. Software-defined storage is one use case among many that Blockbridge is well-suited to enable within your environment.
Blockbridge is Multi-Tenant?
Yes. The Blockbridge architecture enables tenants to operate in shared physical infrastructure with dedicated resources and private management. We also deliver sophisticated security guarantees for tenant data, networking and management functions.
Secure multi-tenancy refers to features and guarantees that protect assets from harm (ie. loss, exposure, tampering, etc). It’s a collection of hundreds of implementation details. Key generation, delegation, secure deletion, auditing, role based management, and intrusion detection are core features, not an afterthought.
