Why Choose StoneFly Enterprise Cloud Storage in Azure?

Investing in costly on-premise storage options puts business cost capacity at stake. Microsoft Azure cloud storage is an alternative for this as it facilitates users to pay only for the storage they use. This makes it an economical choice in the long run. Let’s discuss in detail why StoneFly enterprise cloud storage in Azure is the best fit for business IT environments worldwide:

  • Security: Ransomware, data corruption, rogue applications, software malfunctions, etc. these are real threats to business data that cause a significant amount of disruption and loss of business each year. StoneFly ensures data security for business data with encryption technology preventing unauthorized sources to affect business data – making data transfers secure and reliable.

 

  • Cost Effectiveness: Cloud storage solutions reduce CapEx greatly, businesses don’t have to purchase storage infrastructure and that has great impact on the budget. OpEx is also greatly reduced because businesses no longer have to endure maintenance costs or power or cooling costs. As long as the cloud storage solutions are used appropriately, they’re more cost effective than on-premises storage solutions.

 

  • Scalability: The ability to scale up or down is important when it comes to cloud storage solutions. Businesses don’t want to pay for additional storage capacity but they want it to be available whenever they need it. With StoneFly’s enterprise cloud storage solutions, scalability is made easy. StoneFly offers scalable storage in Azure cloud whether it be NAS, SAN or NAS + SAN volumes. For more information about Scalability in the cloud, click here: What is Scalability in the Cloud?

 

  • Accessibility: Business mobility depends greatly on data accessibility. StoneFly recognizes this and StoneFly cloud storage technology emphasizes on data accessibility with data services like replication. Not to mention, Azure uses geo-redundancy to ensure data is always available. Even in the event of a disaster which may compromise an Azure datacenter, users continue to operate without feeling any disruption because data is accessible from a different replica in a different datacenter.
