Cloud Native Obsidian (CNO) is a comprehensive, on-premises cloud storage solution based on Cloud Native architecture. As a distributed software-defined storage solution, CNO provides the durability and fault tolerance for today’s always-on data center. Highly scalable, vertically and horizontally, for both capacity and/or performance, our CNO storage solution can be infinitely expanded. Optimized with multi-protocol support, CNO provides the flexibility to deploy across many of the most demanding IT use cases.

CNO simple storage management makes the adoption of cloud-native services pain-free while letting you focus on your business strategy and achieving faster time to market for your storage solutions. CNO provides local storage capacity with lower latency performance and no complicated storage tiers, when compared to Cloud based storage. CNO removes traditional RAID hardware constraints by simply allowing additional, qualified storage nodes to be added to the CNO clusters and providing a scalable storage lifecycle, under one cloud native storage manager.
