Storage without limit. Accelerate your business with Phalanx.

Business and ideas don't wait. Neither should you. Moving at the speed of business demands the best from your IT infrastructure. Phalanx offers the agility, resiliency and performance that are required to keep your organization growing.



Designed to perform

Scales performance with capacity

No hot write areas

Minimum IO contention

Infinitely scalable

Intelligent IO prioritization

Phalanx is designed and optimized for modern software-defined environments and next generation storage devices - everything needed to maximize your organization's operational agility while minimizing the total cost of ownership (TCO). Let Phalanx help you move at the speed of business.

All the power you need. In a package that is easy and simple to use.


Increasing density and lowering TCO. While HDD capacity has increased over time, the amount of IO it can process per second have remained constant. This leads to unusable capacity and scalability issues. Phalanx is designed from the ground up to address this challenge and to return the power to the user. This means more time and resource for what matters most - doing your best work.


Phalanx puts the power of next generation storage technologies at your finger tips. With an innovative row & column architecture and intelligent IO prioritization, Phalanx can effortlessly handle multiple streams of ingress and egress data. Store and access your data in ways never before possible.

more IOPS1

Uncompromising reliability and performance with effortless simplicity. A powerful combination.

Create without boundaries. Phalanx delivers the best performance of any storage system. Start focusing on what you are creating, not what you are creating with. Extreme performance delivered.


An industry first. Host Managed SMR on Ceph and Hadoop. Say hello to consistency, predictability and a lower TCO.

Future ready. The most advanced storage platform, packaged with a sleek, simple turnkey design that is easy to deploy and operate. There are no application nor kernel changes. We've minimized the friction and disruption to what's next.



Let the yellow elephant out. Hadoop does not natively support next generation storage technologies such as Host Managed SMR. Resulting in higher TCO and inconsistent performances at scale. With Phalanx, Hadoop can transparently utilize Host Managed SMR devices. Users no longer have to compromise on performance for increased storage density and lower TCO.

faster throughput2

Release the Kraken. Ceph is not designed to minimize IO contentions and hot writes. These lead to scalability issues and long tail latencies. Phalanx enables Ceph to scale performance with capacity and to limit performance variations at scale. It’s now easier than ever to expand your storage.

  1. Testing conducted by Kalista IO in August 2019 using preproduction Olympus (Phalanx) software with Linux kernel 4.18.0-25-generic, and Intel® Core™ i7-4771 CPU 3.50GHz with 16GiB DDR3 Synchronous 2400 MHz RAM, and Western Digital Ultrastar DC HC620 host managed SMR and Ultrastar DC HC530 CMR drives connected through SATA 3.2, 6.0 Gb/s interface. Tested with Flexible I/O tester (fio) version 3.14-11-g308a. Random write bench ran for 1800 seconds with 4KB block and 200GB file size, 64 concurrent threads each with queue depth of 1. Executed 3 times to capture average and standard deviation IOPS values.
  2. Testing conducted by Kalista IO in August 2019 using preproduction Olympus (Phalanx) software with Linux kernel 5.0.0-25-generic, and Intel® Core™ i7-4771 CPU 3.50GHz with 16GiB DDR3 Synchronous 2400 MHz RAM, and Western Digital Ultrastar DC HC620 host managed SMR and Ultrastar DC HC530 CMR drives connected through SATA 3.2, 6.0 Gb/s interface. Tested with Apache Hadoop version 3.2.0 in single node pseudodistributed mode with single block replica, and TestDFSIO version 1.8 on OpenJDK version 1.8.0_222. TestDFSIO read benchmark ran with 32 files, 16GB each for a 512GB dataset. Executed 3 times to capture average and standard deviation throughput values.
