How ZebClient achieves 500x faster access
ZebClient makes big data fast & cloud data safe
Think of ZebClient’s functionality as a redundant and persistent cache that also protects your data, stores your file data in object data format and disaggregates your data storage from your compute resources.
ZebClient mimics on-prem performance
The ZebClient software is installed both in application nodes and in acceleration layer nodes. The software installs in the cloud or on-prem.
ZebClient secures & protects your data
On an application level, ZebClient handles read and write requests from applications, writes data in shards to all tiers, stores data in S3 format and ensures that your data is safe.
ZebClient secures data at memory speed
At acceleration level, ZebClient secures data redundancy and makes data accessible at high speeds from multiple application nodes. The tiering function provides fastest access for hot data that is most often or most recently used.
ZebClient replaces high-cost file storage with low-cost cloud storage
ZebClient stores all data in cloud storage to secure both durability and cost-efficiency. It also applies versioning to the cloud-stored data, so there is no longer a need for costly separate data backup solutions. Data recovery is instantly available.

ZebClient offers three distinct cluster deployment modes, enabling customers to tailor their ZebClient configuration and optimize costs. Each mode is thoroughly designed to ensure optimal node utilization and to deliver a sustained high performance.
In direct mode, ZebClient establishes a direct connection to cold object storage, bypassing the standard acceleration layer. This deployment mode, leverages ZebClient’s unique data handling principles and maximizes the utilization of application node hardware to deliver acceleration of data access speeds. As a result, users can access data at high speeds directly from cold storage and significantly reduce infrastructure costs.
For this deployment mode to work at its best, the compute resources should be located close to the cloud object storage.
In converged mode, ZebClient introduces its acceleration layer already on the application nodes, alongside the customer applications. This mode permits users to allocate a portion of the nodes’ CPU and memory capabilities to the acceleration layer to reduce cost. The resource allocation to ZebClient result in a modest increase in CPU consumption.
In tiered mode, ZebClient uses dedicated nodes to deploy one or multiple tiers of the acceleration layer. This configuration guarantees exceptional I/O performance and scalability, limited only by the underlying infrastructure.
Simple to maintain and manage.
Ideal for enhancing performance for sequential I/O operations on compressible data.
Lowest possible infrastructure cost.
Higher IOPS performance vs the direct mode deployment.
Cost optimization as already existing resources are used.
Best-in-class, scalable performance across all metrics.
IOPS performance is constrained by the cloud object storage's capabilities.
Marginally elevated CPU consumption from ZebClient running on the nodes.
Increased network I/O demand generated by the ZebClient system.
Higher in cost but still provides significant cost savings compared to other alternatives available in market.
ZebClient is offered as a monthly subscription alternatively as an offline six- or twelve-month subscription where fees are based on performance delivered to connected applications and volume of data under management.
The standard ZebClient subscription includes an online license connected to Zebware backend systems for reporting and validation. ZebClient online licenses are offered with monthly subscription fees based on performance delivered to connected applications and volume of data under management. Please note that converged deployments typically include both converged nodes and tiered nodes. The converged pricing applies to the converged application/acceleration nodes and CPUs only.
ZebClient licenses can be provided as custom-tailored offline licenses to customers who require their IT infrastructure solutions to be isolated from the internet. Offline licenses are typically provided with six- or twelve-months binding time. Both versions are billed quarterly in advance. The standard offline license price list is provided below. Prices for customised deployments are available upon request.
Price example: A ZebClient design including 200 TB of data under management and serving three application nodes, using AWS compute instances of type i3en.6xlarge with 12 CPUs/node, would have a fee of 3 * (30 + (12 * 10)) + (200 * 6) = 1650 $ per month. Cost of cloud services or any other products used to run ZebClient is not included in the ZebClient price.

Pricing, general terms
ZebClient product list prices are applicable when ZebClient is used solely for customer’s internal business operations, i.e. any third party usage is not allowed.
Cost of cloud services or any other products used to run ZebClient is not included in the ZebClient price
The price list is valid from Feb 10, 2023.
ZebClient price lists are also available in EUR and SEK at checkout in the store.
All prices are exclusive of VAT.
Data under ZebClient management is calculated as the average volume of data written to and stored in the ZebClient system within the billing period.
The price lists apply to ZebClient online licenses and to standard setups of offline licenses. Customized solutions are tailored and priced upon request.
For offline licenses the monthly fix fees are charged quarterly in advance.
The online subscription has no binding period but a two months’ notice period.
The offline subscription can be ordered as a 6-month or 12-month binding period.
