Dedicated, security-rich cloud
This single-tenant storage cloud instance can be on your premises or in an IBM data center. Your data stays more secure and close to home and is supported by data-at-rest encryption.
IBM managed, trusted
This private cloud is managed by IBM, a trusted market leader in IT services. This means that IBM installs, manages and monitors the equipment for you around the clock. We proactively fix issues, perform repairs, and maintain the hardware and firmware to keep the storage device running and to take advantage of the latest feature releases.
Right sized and tiered
This is not a “one size fits all” offering. Multiple block and file data tiers are designed to provide accelerated performance for critical applications and cost-effective storage for less-accessed data, for both your structured and unstructured data.
Dynamic over time
The private cloud is responsive and adaptive to your business needs. Plus, it will evolve to take advantage of the latest industry technologies. Move workloads from data tier to data tier when application requirements change. Add data into select tiers to consolidate applications, create copies for dev/test, and so on.
Pay per use, as a service
With consumption-based billing, you pay for only the data that you use monthly. Pricing can be calculated based on total capacity allocated to hosts or capacity written to storage data tiers, depending on your need.
No long-term commitment
You can cancel at any time with 60 days’ notice after a six-month initial commitment. Compared with a capital expense (CAPEX) purchase or long-term lease, this can give you more financial flexibility without having to put your critical data in the public cloud.
Enjoy virtually unlimited storage without having to procure, maintain and manage the technology yourself. Scale your storage use up or down as your business needs change.
“No surprise” pricing
Purchase on a standard USD/GB/month basis for each data tier.
