Early Cloud adopters who put all their content in S3/Public cloud have been surprised by storage and egress costs. Frequently required files and media which is accessed across multiple sights has seen monthly charges soar, meaning companies are looking for cost-effective solutions, such as Hybrid or Private Cloud.
Private Cloud solutions can provide shared storage to business units whilst improving an organisation’s CAPEX and delivering greater control and security to your content.
The main advantage of adopting the Private Cloud is you take control. You can own and manage the content on your storage without rising monthly costs. By operating your own content repositories, you are able to utilise as much or as little as you want. For example, you can back-up endpoint devices to your cloud, once you have your content there you can use it for data analytics.
With a modular storage architecture and patented dynamic data placement, you can grow your system without re-balancing, move gracefully across generations, and avoid forklift upgrades.
Also… did you know other than archiving content to private cloud you can use it for the following;
Back-up end point devices e.g. Laptops.
Provide a DR access provision if you can’t get in to the office.
Perform analytics on usage/content/trends/in-house data/performance
Are you currently storing your on-premise and thinking about moving to the cloud to save revenue? Upgrade cycles, staff training and the need to increase the number of servers can create ongoing issues.
Implementing a private cloud model can improve the allocation of resources within an organisation by ensuring that the availability of resources to individual departments/business functions can directly and flexibly respond to their demand.
Public Cloud S3 – AWS / Azure / Google
Are you looking to move away from a pure Public Cloud storage solution?
As a private cloud is only accessible by a single organisation, that organisation will have the ability to configure and manage it in-line with their needs to achieve a tailored network solution. And regardless of the additional storage of files month on month, year on year, you won’t receive building fees and costs.
