Cloud Storage provides you with high levels of reliability and performance and the ability to purchase only the capacity you need.
Respond to data growth – Businesses now generate huge amounts of data and are expected to keep more of it for longer. Pulsant’s Cloud Storage is provided on a flexible capacity allocation basis from our enterprise storage systems. These systems provide you with high levels of reliability and performance, and crucially allow you to consume the storage flexibly. You purchase only the capacity you need when you need it, including linear scaling, short term requirements and performance bursting.
Save storage costs – Quality on-premise storage is a costly CapEx, and is therefore typically built only when needed and to a minimum amount to fill immediate needs. When that amount is filled, increasing it involves purchasing and deploying yet more costly hardware, in a cycle that grows ever shorter. An effective way to break this cycle of ever-increasing CapEx is to move storage to a cloud-based OpEx model, where you can benefit from the economies of scale that a shared cloud platform provides and extra storage can be provisioned with no capital outlay on your part as soon as the need is identified.
Reliability – Modern business systems rely on the guaranteed availability of data. Your data storage systems must be flawlessly reliable and available 24 hours a day. This is often not achievable with dedicated on-premise storage, where the failure of a hardware component of an environmental disaster can cause the entire system to fail. The Cloud Storage platform is highly available by design, using multiple redundant hardware components to ensure the platform keep running—and your data continues to be available—even in the result of component failures.
Security – Pulsant’s Cloud Storage platform has security built in by design. Our storage services use a mixture of hardware zoning, filters, and authentication to ensure that clients cannot see or affect volumes that are assigned to other clients. The platform is our secure, accredited (ISO 27001, CSA Star), UK-based data centres to provide you not only with data security but also data sovereignty that is difficult to guarantee in a hyperscale public cloud storage solution.
Cloud Storage moves your business-critical data to a cloud-based model, where you can benefit from the economies of scale that a shared cloud platform provides and provision additional storage with no capital outlay on your part as soon as the need is identified.
