In-depth analysis highlights new economics that can be found by adopting Storage-as-a-Service model
New York – A recent research report by global IT industry analyst and marketing strategy firm Neuralytix detailed the abilities and challenges of on-premises Storage-as-a-Service (StaaS) offerings and compared the capabilities of four vendors in the market space. The review presents a comparison of features and price of offerings from Nutanix, Pure Storage, and StorONE. The report also documents how on-premises StaaS offerings differ from cloud-native storage vendor, Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The Neuralytix Insight looked at the reasons for the rapid and dramatic shift IT organizations are experiencing in how they deploy storage and recommend the StaaS model, which delivers capacity and performance for a periodic fee, to overcome them. The StaaS model provides capacity and performance for a periodic fee based on an organization’s exacts needs.
“The solution is intended to drive a new level of storage economics and resource utilization while preventing storage media from becoming a performance bottleneck through the use of high-performance SAS and NVMe flash drives.”
“Startup StorONE has announced its S1-as-a-Service (S1aaS) which integrates its S1 combined file, block and object storage software with Dell PowerEdge server hardware. Customers can start with a $999 per month deal for an 18TB all-flash array that delivers up to 150,000 IOPS in a 2U form factor, and has data protection included.”
