Brooklyn NAS Edge Cache

The Brooklyn NAS Edge Cache has been designed for businesses that require high-speed access to a Cloud or Object Storage using a traditional Windows or NFS protocols. The Brooklyn NAS Edge Cache combines the Coronado NAS Gateway for Windows and NFS connectivity with a tiered edge cache for local performance. Similar to a standard proxy server, the Brooklyn NAS Edge Cache will save all file metadata and the most active files on a local disk cache. All metadata and files are always saved in the Cloud Storage. This allows users to have near local speed on recent files when manipulating files in and out of the cloud. This is ideal for users or applications that still require local file access but don’t want the latency between the on-premise appliance and the cloud storage. The Brooklyn NAS Edge Cache also has the ability to mirror to multiple cloud locations and/or multiple Cloud Storage regions. Click here to purchase and download the OVA


The Brooklyn NAS Edge Cache includes one Coronado NAS Gateway license allowing the Brooklyn edge cache to export SMB and NFS protocols. If required additional Coronado Cloud Gateways can be added to extend the local footprint at remote locations.

The Brooklyn NAS Edge Cache has been designed to cache file metadata and the most active files locally while mirroring all data to the cloud. This masks user latency between the local site and the cloud storage.

The Brooklyn NAS Edge Cache allows the most accessed files to remain local. This means no egress fees and more efficient access to files for both reading and writing.

BridgeSTOR understands that disk cache is important. The Brooklyn NAS Edge Cache requires flash disk for the metadata and flash or spinning disk for the file cache. BridgeSTOR does not charge for cache capacity. Feel free to load it up.

The Brooklyn NAS Edge Cache has the ability to mirror to four Cloud Endpoints. A Cloud Endpoint could be a Cloud Storage Provider such as Amazon S3 or it could be local object storage such as Cloudian. Currently BridgeSTOR supports almost every Cloud Provider and Object Storage Vendor using the S3 Protocol.

The Brooklyn NAS Edge Cache has been designed to use multiple background threads. The number of threads are tunable allowing for fast access to the cloud.. This allows files to quickly move into the remote cloud locations.

The Brooklyn NAS Edge cache ships as a Virtual Machines (OVA) and currently supports VMware, Nutanix, Hyper-V, VirtualBox, Linux KVM and Amazon AMI’s.  Click here to purchase and download the OVA
