OneBlox Out-Of-The-Box

Setup doesn't get much simpler than with OneBlox. A two-page leaflet illustrates initial setup in three basic steps: plug in electrical and network cables, insert raw drives and turn on the power.

OneBlox is paired with OneSystem, a cloud-based, multitenant management system that gives solution providers a single interface for maintaining all Exablox client devices. This too is as simple as can be.
