Converged Storage Reimagined
The industry’s first scale-out converged secondary storage that can serve primary workloads and is integrated with cloud-based disaster recovery for end-to-end business continuity.
Keep Systems and Data Always Safe and Available
Your business can’t operate without access to your critical data for a long period of time. A large-scale disaster can readily disrupt systems and make doing business impossible. Building out your own data centre for disaster recovery is costly. But StorageCraft Cloud Services™ lets you control costs by letting you customise services to fit your business needs and budget. Plus you’ll never be surprised with extra fees at the time of recovery. When the worst happens, know that data is safe, recoverable, and available.
Advantages of Storing Your Data Off-Site Cloud Storage Systems Offer Convenience and Peace of Mind
In the past, most companies maintained servers on premises to store and access their expanding repositor of data, apps, and business files. Today, data stored in the cloud can be accessed from anywhere at any time, and used as a crucial DRaaS option. Consider the top five advantages of off-site storage backup:
1. Security and Availability
Organisations are increasingly depending on off-site cloud storage services such as those offered by StorageCraft® to keep their data safe and available.
- 41% of companies use cloud storage services
- 72% of companies store primary data in the cloud
- 13 terabytes of data on average stored by cloud storage users surveyed
- 80% of companies reported a disaster recover operation in the last two years
Every organisation’s needs are different. Cloud storage service providers like StorageCraft offer a range of service choices to customise cloud storage to fit your needs, whether your IT environment is small and straightforward, or large and complex.
- Backup for systems and data – From secure off-site storage, to rapid recovery of files and folders, to instant virtualisation of complete systems in the cloud
- Management of backup images – Customisation consolidation, verification, replication, retention, and notification settings
- Disaster recovery – Flexible options based on your recovery objectives, so you pay only for the recovery
- Recovery testing – Ability to test procedures and demonstrate easy recovery before a disaster occurs
3. Reduced Cost
Manually backing up files is labor intensive and hardware dependent. Off-site
cloud storage can free staff from time-consuming management chores and
reduce costs over the long term.
- Eliminate expenses for storage media, backup servers, and associated software
- Reduce hardware maintainance and repair costs, software subscriptions
- Simplify management and monitoring with remote tools like dashboards or desktop apps
4. Distaster Recover
Disaster Recovery as a Service options can incorporate a backup operational mode called failover, in which functions of key system components like servers and databases are automatically continued in the cloud in the event of a disruption.
- Organisations can continue to operate during a disaster
- Disaster Recovery as a Service options include automatic, manual, or one-click failover
- Timing and deployment of virtual machines can be configured for each mission-critical system
- Never have to pay ransomware demands when you can quickly restore and recover
5. Network Recover Options
Disaster recovery can be enhanced and customised with advanced network capabilities that allow IT to run as flexibly and seamlessly in the cloud as it does on site.
- Access and update recovery networks through VPN or IPsec
- Customise recovery network firewalls
- Customise Port, DHCP, and IP recovery settings
