The Technology Behind The World’s Leading Data-Driven Organizations

 

WOS enables customers to build the perfect storage platform for any data type or size. The platform can be tuned to support any application that needs to store and access large volumes of unstructured data. Policies can be set per object, so one single WOS infrastructure can be used to support several applications. For example, it is perfectly possible to use WOS for a combined sync & share, DR and archiving solution – or to build a scale-out web application that will be generating billions of small files, but also needs to provide high throughput to stream high-resolution movies.
