Medusa 24 SSD Bay


This high performance software defined storage (SDS) appliance known as the Bit Hoarder Medusa is unique in our product line, as in it doesn't actually have a large array intended for storage. The Medusa is designed to be a replacement for a SAN or any application requiring 100 Terabytes or more. The Medusa includes a 24 bay 2.5" chassis intended for fast SSD cache drives which accelerates performance of your large data pools. We built the Medusa with an extra focus on flexible expandability.

Direct Replacement

The Medusa is the perfect solution if you already have existing storage, simply point the appliance to your external storage arrays and you're done.


Overcome the limitations of traditional backups with snapshots. Snapshots effectively handle the 'track changes' portion of traditional backup, but in a new and truely unique way.


Data is rapidly growing, and space is becoming more and more of a commodity. Bit Hoarder has the ability to deduplicate your files as they are being copied in real time or as a nightly task; if there is a high potential for duplication (e.g. MS Exchange Server or virtual machine data), these savings will be significant.


Business moves fast and every second counts. Our real time gauges and historical trending displays provide supervisors and administrators with indepth knowledge of system throughput and performance.
