scale-out storage

A storage system that uses a scaling methodology to create a dynamic storage environment that will support balanced data growth on an as-needed basis. Scale-out storage architecture uses a number of storage nodes -- consisting of multiple low-cost computer servers and storage components -- that are configured to create a storage pool or are configured to increase computing power to exceed a traditional storage array.

Using scale-out storage, the approach is to add storage nodes that work in tandem as you require additional storage resources. The scale-out architecture is designed to scale both capacity and performance.
