Sunlight Software-defined Storage (SDS), a component of Sunlight HyperConverged Edge (HCE), aggregates local storage drives across a cluster (ideally NVMe) into a virtual storage pool which can be provisioned as vDisks – each with their own redundancy policies, and fast repair and resynch times for content repair. Sunlight SDS is designed for easy scaling and low latency – supplying over 1M IOPS per VM.

High performance, low latency

  • Deliver over 1M IOPS per VM
  • Ultra low latency
  • Linear scale-out performance
High performance, low latency

Easy deployment options

Easy to implement and manage

Sunlight HyperConverged Edge is easy to install - the complete Sunlight HCE stack can be installed on bare-metal servers in minutes. Sunlight is easy to manage - it includes the Edge Stack Console that allows you to manage all aspects of your Sunlight cluster, including fine-grained control of CPU, storage and network configuration and performance. The dashboard is installed as part of the HCE stack and is highly-available by design across the cluster.

Easy to implement and manage

Highly Available

Sunlight is highly available, delivering fail-over and redundancy for mission-critical applications at the edge. Eliminate downtime and lower the cost of servicing remote locations by moving break-fix to regular business hours and with lower cost SLAs.


Sunlight is designed with security at its core. All components of the Sunlight stack are hardened. Thanks to Sunlight’s fine grained CPU and memory allocation it is possible to physically guard against CPU memory exploits. Control of IO interfaces allows you to separate content and network traffic so there is no sharing of physical drives or network physical interfaces.

Low Cost

Sunlight is priced for edge economics, with flexible terms on a per-node basis.
