Stand-alone Cloud Storage

Storage capacity delivered as a cloud service. Basic storage services describe the access to and management of raw capacity that is sold directly to end users by Service Providers. The storage sold as basic storage services can often form the foundation or back end for more advanced services.

Market Insights

Industry Analysts believe the market for Storage as a Service will see strong growth, increasing 125% from 2013 to 2018, to $19.3 billion as organizations' increased storage needs result in the movement of more data to the cloud to reduce costs and the physical footprint of data centers.

  • Resilient, reliable and geo-accessible storage which enables better SLA commitment
  • Enterprise-class features with multi-tenant capabilities
  • Great operation efficiency with built-in metering, charge back, and management API access capabilities
  • Superior economics with low cost object-based infrastructure and integrated commodity hardware
  • Disaster Recovery deployed in 3 sites or more allows the lowest cost overhead

B

Isilon

NAS/File based applications with local namespace requirement, and the node count will not need to exceed 144 nodes

Isilon

  • Ability to scale with low mgt overhead
  • Low $/GB
  • Ability to leverage dense SATA drives
  • File-based protocols
  • Disaster Recovery is accomplished with 2 sites
