StorONE Joins Hands With Tech Data For All-Flash Arrays As-A-Service


StorONE has joined hands with Tech Data to deliver All-Flash Arrays as-a-Service (AFAaaS) that support all workloads and also offer complete data protection.

With these all-flash arrays, users can take advantage of a subscription-based billing model, priced per terabyte, without a long-term commitment.

All AFAaaS systems offer complete data management and protection features such as unlimited snapshots; support for all storage protocols (block, file, and object) on the same drives; support for iSCSI, Fibre Channel, NFS, and S3; and support for all drive types in the same server. Five configurations are available immediately: 18, 20, 40, 60, and 80 TB, with IOPS ranging from 100,000 up to 600,000.

According to the company, S1’s next-gen abstracted architecture accelerates drive rebuild times, eliminates dedicated hot spares, and offers highly granular, user-definable resiliency levels. S1 also allows unlimited, nestable, writeable, and persistent snapshots with zero performance impact. It enables organizations to run random and sequential workloads, cloud-native and legacy applications, and support containers, microservices, and line-of-business applications, together on one shared platform.

The company said that AFAaaS models with S1 storage services will cost around fifty cents per GB per month.
