SoftNAS Architecture on AWS


Network Attached Storage (NAS) software is commonly deployed to provide shared file services to users and applications. SoftNAS Cloud, a popular NAS solution that can be deployed from the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace, is designed to support a variety of market verticals, use cases, and workload types. Increasingly, SoftNAS is deployed on the AWS platform to enable block and file storage services through Common Internet File System (CIFS), NFS, and iSCSI. This paper addresses architectural considerations when deploying SoftNAS Cloud on AWS. It also provides best practice guidance for security, performance, high availability, and backup.
