StoneFly Cloud Storage
StoneFly’s Virtual Dedicated Storage is the perfect solution for companies:
- Looking to add Storage on the fly.
- Looking to save money on CapEx (Capital Expenses) and OpEx (Operating Expenses).
- Required to use off-site Storage for regulatory compliance.
- Looking for an advanced disaster recovery solution.
StoneFly SAN technology includes advanced business continuity features, including asynchronous remote replication, snapshots, data deduplication and volume encryption, ideal for protecting mission-critical information. To reap the maximum benefit from the replication and snapshotting features, data should be stored in more than one location, requiring a remote host to be available.
But many users have only one datacenter – the server room. StoneFly Cloud Business Center (CBC™) hosting empowers organizations to fully utilize StoneFly backup and disaster recovery features, enabling organizations large and small to implement offsite backup inexpensively.
