On-premises object storage

IDrive® e2 provides an on-premises object storage solution that radically simplifies the ability to manage, store, and protect data. The appliance, or Software-defined Storage (SDS), allows S3/HTTP access to any application, device, or end user. When used in On-Premise, Private Cloud, and Hybrid Cloud environments, the appliance ensures the rapidly scaling datasets are continuously protected and instantly accessible. It eliminates tedious storage management and reduces the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Data protection against hardware failure

Advanced erasure coding techniques ensure data protection against multiple drive failures, making it ideal for securing enterprise data.

High-performance object storage

Accelerate overall performance with GB/s throughput, ultra-low latency, and extensive enterprise-class object storage capabilities.

Quick and easy deployment

Anyone can manage IDrive® e2 appliance deployment; no Linux experience or deep storage administration expertise is required.

Bucket versioning

Restore older bucket versions from specific recovery points, in the case of malware attacks or overwrites/deletion.

Object lock

Configure objects as immutable for a defined duration and secure data against deletion/alteration.

Ransomware protection

Protect data against cyber threats using a combination of object lock, data versioning, and retention.


A single S3 namespace plus an intuitive user interface provides monitoring of data, storage, platform, and hardware.
