The Benefits of Storage as a Service and Why Zadara is the Only True Purpose Built Solution

The world of storage is constantly evolving, and with the rise of cloud computing, storage as a service has become increasingly popular. As more organizations look to outsource infrastructure solutions, the importance of finding a vendor that can offer reliable, cost-effective and scalable solutions is paramount.

Zadara stands out from other providers as the only true purpose-built storage as a service solution. It was designed for storage as a service from inception, giving it a unique advantage over other solutions. According to GigaOm’s research on Storage as a Service, Zadara has been ranked as the leading provider, and was the only company to receive the highest rating of “Exceptional” across all seven criteria. This recognition highlights Zadara’s superiority over other providers such as Pure Storage, NetApp, and IBM.

Zadara’s unique advantages as a storage as a service provider include:

  1. Lower Financial Commitments: Zadara’s financial commitments required from the customer are MUCH lower (30-50% lower), of other storage as a service providers. This allows organizations to save money while still getting top-notch storage solutions.
  2. High Flexibility: Zadara requires minimum financial spend and commitments. With Zadara customers can swing between various storage types and/or compute over time as the customer chooses. This high level of flexibility results in a substantial elimination of customer financial risk.
  3. Managed Service: Zadara provides a fully managed service that includes hardware, software, operations and support, not just cold, unconfigured hardware. For customers, this means faster time to solution and reduction of risk from non-optimized solutions.
  4. No Data Egress Fees: Unlike hyperscalers, Zadara does not charge data egress fees, giving customers the freedom to move their data around without incurring extra costs.

These benefits, combined with Zadara’s commitment to providing reliable, cost-effective and scalable storage solutions, make it the ideal choice for organizations looking to improve their storage infrastructure or start fresh.

Zadara is a great solution for service providers and enterprises, and it provides the benefits of on-prem, in the cloud and multi-cloud infrastructure solutions.

Whether you’re looking to improve your existing storage infrastructure or a fresh start, Zadara can help you achieve your goals and keep your data secure and accessible.
