Great Product, Excellent Support

We are using SoftNAS to provide CIFS shares for an AD environment. I was a little confused on the permissions configuration and sent a pre-sales question to their support team. Their email response was quick and professional. Most important of all, the technician had an in-depth knowledge of the product and quickly answered all of my technical questions.

I find this great product. having a shared CIFS and NFS for a bunch of webservers is what everyone is looking for. Easy to set up and running in a few moments.

We have been using SoftNAS in our organization after initial evaluation around 8 months ago. Thereafter we had great support from SoftNAS support team in testing, deployment, performance tuning and also migration to BYOL model. The product is feature rich and robust backed by a solid knowledgeable and responsive support team. Feedback from our scenarios were quickly turned into bug fixes from time to time manifesting their commitment to customer satisfaction. I recommend SoftNAS to any organization willing to deploy shared file system services in the cloud. Special thanks to Jack, Nate, Roman, Amr for their continued support and cooperation.

We have been using SoftNAS in AWS for over 12 months, and have upgraded to High Availability over two availability zones. The support provided has been second to none including very willing flexibility to provide assistance out of hours for upgrades.

Top Product and Support

We have been working with this product for a few days creating and destroying various instances, implementing replication and HA, failing over and failing back. The product work really very well and the interface is very user friendly.

Working with support I found they were willing to accommodate our time critical testing and more than happy to spend the time to help me understand the product and its more technical aspects.

More than happy to recommend this product.

Enables Horizontal Scaling fast!

Seriously, was able to get off the ground with the product in under an hour. Documentation should be improved for mounting NFS drives to EC2 Linux Instances (if you have local users, documentation won't tell you to sync the userIds on all systems)... But overall, the storage processor exposed by SoftNas is the best I've ever used. It's incredible.

Fantastically simple cloud NAS service with great support

Deployed SoftNAS as a part of our forklift to move from DC to AWS. The support and ease of deployment for this service has been very enjoyable.

The SoftNAS team is exceedingly knowledgeable, helpful and responsive.

Their insights into the best method to provide CIFS|NFS|S3 durable access to all our data from both out office HQ and VPC instances has been very helpful.

The features they currently provide, plus those coming soon are elegant, useful and very needed.

I would recommend this product and their company's support & sales (Nate & Jack) to anyone looking for a simple and quick solution to what would have previously consumed weeks of SysAd setup time...

Great product with great support

We were looking for a solution that would allow us to use S3 buckets as a network drive and this is perfect. The support is excellent, we've had a few issues with upgrades due to an unusual configuration but, the support team has always responded to and dealt with these quickly and efficiently.
