Price, performance and resilience
OnApp Storage has the performance, resilience and cost characteristics that you need to run a successful global cloud business.
Cloud Boot is a new way to save time building and scaling your cloud. Wheel in a rack, hook it up to your network, and OnApp will automatically discover and install your hypervisors. The Cloud Boot method of hypervisor deployment is a key component of OnApp Storage, and is required to use our distributed SAN.

Smart disk technology
OnApp’s patent-pending smart disk technology means that each physical disk in your SAN is a smart, self-managing, self-discovering and self-contained unit. That means disks are hot-pluggable. There is no centralized management system to fail, and each node can make decisions about data synchronization and load balancing without depending on a central controller.
> Smart disk technology
OnApp Storage is 'VM-aware': it knows which physical disk holds a copy of data belonging to a specific virtual machine. That's extremely important, because it enables OnApp Storage to store VM data close to the VM that needs it - which optimizes storage throughput and performance.
