Arrikto documentation

Welcome to the Rok Docs!

Rok is a data management layer, which enables directly-attached, local NVMe to become primary, persistent storage. It provides all the necessary data services on the side of the primary I/O path. Rok enables you to:

  • Run your applications with unparalleled performance
  • Enhance the data management capabilities of your existing local storage devices
  • Create and track virtually unlimited snapshots of local persistent volumes, which do not impact application performance, because they are kept separate from the I/O path
  • Bridge the performance of NVMe with the flexibility of a shared network attached storage option
  • Share your applications across multiple clouds and administrative domains
