Storage as a Service

Increase Storage Capacity Quickly and Efficiently

Storage as a Service that is Secure, Resilient, and Redundant

Taking on storage is a complex endeavor. Purchasing, staging, configuration and supporting storage hardware are all part of the process, and depending on the volume of data and retention requirements, it can be expensive. Public cloud storage options are sometimes worth considering, but retrieval charges often accompany them, and not all businesses feel comfortable relying on cloud storage.

Data is the lifeblood of your business, and digitalization is ensuring that data volumes continue to multiply exponentially. Your IT organization deserves an efficient, cost-effective method to augment storage capacity. Partnering with a data center expert who can deliver elastic data storage capacity and management capabilities multiplies the forces of your IT team and reduces expenses.

DataBank Storage as a Service provides quick turnaround of secure, resilient, redundant, and encrypted storage for DataBank colocation customers. The solution physically resides in existing colocation facilities, ensuring security and compliance including FIPS 140-2.

  • Opt for a consumption-based pricing model to maximize efficiency
  • Ensure security and compliance by relying on a storage solution located in existing colocation facilities

Manage Costs, Security, and Resiliency
