Cloud Archiving

Cloud Archiving


 Enhancing your archiving strategy with a cloud-based archive offers the opportunity to maintain a seamless user experience while benefitting from virtually unlimited storage capacity. The cost benefits are oftentimes immediate and substantial, benefitting from the public cloud vendor’s economies of scale – especially when comparing it to storing and managing large amounts of non-essential data on expensive in-house primary storage assets. Additional cost benefits include the ability to reduce your datacenter footprint, and consume less power and cooling resources. Enterprise-class public cloud vendors – such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) with whom Alliance Storage Technologies aligns – also offer comprehensive data security and access controls, protection and compliance coverage.
