Storage as a Service (STaaS)

Storage as a service (STaaS) is a managed service model for purchasing data storage based on consumption, where a company only pays for what they use, typically on a per-GB per-month basis.

Storage as a service can be delivered on premises in your own office, data center or the public cloud.

STaaS is available for all protocols (block, file and object) and all disk types (all-flash, hybrid, hdd).

Why use storage as a service?

Storage as a service is used by organisations of all sizes, typically with 10TB or more storage capacity, who want to maximise their operational expenditure, improve availability, mitigate risk and offload technical debt associated with management and maintenance of storage infrastructure.

How storage as a service works?

Customers sign a service agreement based on a fixed cost per-GB per-month basis, with a floor price or minimum commit, typically around $1,500 per month. Equipment is provided to the customer inclusive of all installation, on-going maintenance and future upgrades.

Benefits of storage as a service?

  • Only pay for what you use
  • Remove large up-front CAPEX expenditure
  • Improved levels of service with guaranteed SLAs
  • Offload the management burden of your storage area network
  • Subscription basis: 12, 36 or 60 months
