Storage on Demand

SoD – Storage on Demand

Storage on Demand – Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Storage Space in the Cloud!

Practical experience supports what quite a few studies by well-known market research institutes (Gartner, IDC …) have found: the need for storage capacities will continue to increase rapidly. For many companies, outsourcing data storage to a data center is an interesting alternative – be it to minimize operating expenses or CAPEX, or to increase data security by using an external location.

Benefits of Next Layer Storage on Demand
  • Data storage in three high-end data center locations in Vienna
  • Availability in many data center locations in Austria, connected customer sites, or via Internet
  • Highest availability through redundancy and cluster technology
  • Scalability by easy provisioning of further capacity
  • High cost-effectiveness through predictable usage-based pricing
  • Brand hardware by Netapp and Dell
Storage Tiers
Storage Tier Description
SATA SATA disks are slower disks but tend to have high storage density. This tier is ideal for backup and archive.
SATA with SSD Pool Netapp Flash pool technology buffer the SATA disks with an SSD disk pool – a kind of cache.
SAS SAS disks create more IOs and have lower latencies than SATA disks, making them well-suited for virtualization or databases.
SSD Solid state disks for the highest performance.
