The Elastifile Cross-Cloud Data Fabric

The Elastifile Cloud File System (ECFS) is how a file system would look if someone looked at today’s data reality and designed the ultimate system to manage it. The essential approach – missing until now – is to free all the data from its underlying infrastructure (whether bare metal server, virtual machine, or public cloud instance), so all users and workflows can access it instantly anywhere. We call this a cross-cloud data fabric, and its foundation is the Elastifile Cloud File System. ECFS is a software-defined, high-performance, elastic distributed file system designed from the ground up for massive scale and performance. It consolidates mission-critical workloads based in file, object, and block storage with consistent high performance, scaling linearly as resources are added.

Single Global Namespace

The ECFS architecture seamlessly unifies storage and compute resources to create an elastic, highly-available aggregation of capacity, IOPS, and bandwidth – with consistent, low latency. Those resources are pooled across nodes and sites under an elastic distributed file system, enabling access for applications and users across environments: virtualized or bare metal, on-premises, off-premises service provider, or public cloud.


Any Workload. Bring It On!

Elastifile delivers the performance, consistency, and elastic scalability necessary to support the broad spectrum of enterprise workloads. Designed to support mixed workloads while meeting the needs of challenging hybrid cloud environments – with their many apps, many users, and many files – Elastifile eliminates the need for siloed, workload-specific storage solutions.


Software-Only. Hardware Agnostic. It’s A Data Democracy.

Meet true BYOH. Elastifile is completely infrastructure-agnostic, freeing admins from legacy vendor lock-ins and allowing them to pick any hardware, cloud, or environment at their discretion. It’s time for a new data democracy.


'No Compromise' Linearly
Scalable Performance

ECFS clusters can be easily expanded to incorporate additional resources and/or service more applications and users. As cluster sizes expand, performance scales linearly to coincide with the added resources, delivering a reliable, highly flexible, cost-effective data management platform.


Subscription Pricing

Unlike most traditional storage products, Elastifile offers economic options aligned to the business and budgetary requirements of modern enterprises. Elastifile enables customers to minimize non-essential CAPEX and move to flexible, OPEX-centric, consumption-based pricing.

Data Accessibility

Your data is no longer restricted to on-premises storage. Using CloudConnect, you can access your data from additional sites and any S3-compliant cloud service.

Data Accessibility

Application-Driven Data

Provisioning is a breeze with our out-of-the-box data container types, designed to match your applicative needs. The Public container is great for shared file systems where you’ll want to open access to all clients. VMware Datastore is recommended for hypervisors for virtualization backend. The Application container serves as dedicated storage for applications and databases. And the Private container is restricted to authorized clients via a private namespace.

Application-Driven Data


Expand your cluster’s capacity and reach whenever you want, on whatever compliant hardware you have, with no disruption. And you can start with as few as three and scale to reach hundreds of nodes.


Flexible Deployment Modes

Hyperconverged or
Dedicated Storage

deployment modes for website

Elastifile provides the flexibility to scale storage and compute resources together or independently.

On-Premises, Cloud-Only,
or Hybrid Cloud


Elastifile provides seamless data access from any environment, whether on premises, in the cloud, or in hybrid configurations.

"As an architect, I get flexibility. I can use whatever hardware I want.
I can use whatever storage, whatever networking I want.
If new stuff comes out, I can use it. So the customers are serviced
much better than with old-fashioned storage."
