Transform Whitebox Hardware

Coraid software transforms commodity storage servers into efficient, flexible block-storage appliances. With standard Ethernet for networking, supercharge your data with scalable, high-performance storage at an unbeatable cost.

The classic Coraid SRX3600, a powerful 4U, 36 bay appliance was priced at about $76K. Using the Coraid SR and commodity hardware, you can have the same appliance with powerful software improvements and phenomenal support for under $10K.
