Integration with the Public Cloud
The StoneFly SCVM™ object storage supports Microsoft Azure commercial and Government Cloud, Amazon AWS S3 Cloud or any compatible AWS S3 cloud for an easy data backup, replication and tiering. When choosing a location to store your data you can select to store your data in multiple data centers within a single geographic region or select cross-region service to store your data in multiple data centers across multiple geographic regions. Both provide high data durability and availability. Regional service offers lower latency and with our cross-region service your data remains protected even in the event of a catastrophic regional outage without downtime or intervention required.
Object Storage Alone is not Enough
Object is a very descriptive storage protocol, but it’s not as fast as File-based storage. There are distinct advantages to File that the cloud companies need to win the enterprise business. For instance, if you look at legacy, many applications and databases need and demand File. And customers would rather not have to do all the work over the object-based cloud storage. In the oil and gas industry, all the seismic data is in a File in a volume. All the CAD/CAM applications demand File. Similarly, Oracle database runs incredibly fast on File.
The Object-based storage offered by the public cloud providers is not enough. File is certainly not to be discounted. The StoneFly SCVM™ combines Block, File and Object storage into a single platform. It efficiently and automatically manages all your data.
Data is Where you Want it to Be
Integration with CIFS users Access empowers you to securely authenticate users and manage access to data using role based policies. Data at rest is secured by the SCVM™ or by using your own encryption keys. Select a storage class and put your data in tiers based on your typical data access and choose private cloud SSD storage or public cloud hot storage tier for active workloads, cool blob for less active workloads and for data that is rarely accessed you can move the data to our lowest cost archive depending on your timeline, budget, location and available bandwidth. The SCVM™ has the right hardware and software options to move your data to the cloud quickly securely and cost-effectively.
Future and existing business models for IT solutions are not only based on architecture and technology, but on smart solutions consisting of a combination of services offered by the private and public clouds. This follows the concept of distributing data storage for the most effective and optimized outcomes while being able to manage all the data from a single management console. Different storage types are one of the drivers of smarter services, transitioning from CAPEX models to consumption-based payment.
