Storage plays an increasingly critical role in business computing today. Most companies’ storage needs are constantly growing, and an increasing number of mission-critical business services now depend on secure, reliable, always-available, fast storage services.
|Three types of storage to build your cloud SAN|
This is optimized to meet most standard business storage needs. It’s provisioned on the redundant arrays of fast SAS or Fiber disks. Standard Storage is ideal for server virtualization, operating system volumes, file servers, and for most Microsoft Exchange and SQL implementations.
This is designed for the most demanding mission critical applications. Powered by the fastest disk and array configurations, Premium Storage offers better performance for disk-intensive applications, additional levels of protection, and higher SLAs.
This is optimized for less demanding applications and static data storage. It’s provisioned on less expensive SATA disk arrays, or a third party provider such as Amazon. Archive Storage is our most cost-effective storage offering that is ideal for storing non-transactional data and backups.
Pay for only what you use
Managing storage capacity tends to be complex, time-consuming, and costly. It’s almost impossible to accurately predict the needs of your business months and years in advance. Seasonal spikes in demand, unexpected growth, and new programs challenge even the most careful planning.
At External IT, we solve this problem, and put an end to paying for reserve capacity that you never, or rarely use. When you need extra storage capacity, you just start using it. It’s delivered on a pay-as-you-use basis. In this way we’re able to eliminate capital expenditures on storage, improve your service levels, and simplify previously tedious storage planning.
Leverage 3rd party cloud storage
Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) is one of the best examples of cloud storage that can tapped into seamlessly and inexpensively. Data stored at Amazon can be mapped to seamlessly appear and function as part of your centralized file system. Users access this data just like they would any other data, with permission-based access to their drives and folders. Incorporating third party storage is ideal for archiving data, backup, storing large amounts of content.
