Adaptable Storage Cost & Performance – What’s Cloud Got to Do with It?
Growing up – we outgrew our bicycles. As adults we outgrow lots of things like our cars or houses. Businesses change, too, and so does the infrastructure we use to run it. Unfortunately, the traditional options for storage tend to be fairly inflexible. As business applications and industrial conditions change, the underlying infrastructure may no longer provide the right support.
Moving to a cloud based architecture may feel new, exciting, but maybe a little adventurous. At SoftNAS, we take your cloud journey seriously and help make it faster and easier to make the transition. We start by making it possible to move your storage and compute to the cloud platform of your choice without having to regenerate all of the applications into some new cloud based application architecture. What we mean is, you don’t have to change the frequently used file-based storage systems to leverage virtualized compute on a public cloud platform. It’s common to think you have to create a brand new object-based application to get the benefits of cloud computing. At SoftNAS, that isn’t required.
Flexibility – Adaptable Storage
Another major benefit often overlooked is the flexibility to change as your needs change. Unlike traditional terrestrial storage systems that remain fairly fixed until you get new capital budget, or the product isn’t supported any longer, cloud storage options provide infinite flexibility. Without changing your current data, you can adjust your capacity, the performance characteristics, or the type of data store to fit a combination of cost and performance requirements.
