What is QuantaStor?

Trial & Community Edition Download

The QuantaStor 6 ISO image and license keys for Trial Edition (256TB, 45-days) and Community Edition (40TB raw capacity limit per server, time-limited 2-year license, 4x servers max per storage grid) are available for download here.

QuantaStor uses a single common ISO image for all editions so upgrading a system from Trial or Community Edition to Enterprise Edition just requires applying a new license key.
