StorageCraft has introduced a solution to help educational institutions deal with the exponential growth in the amount of data they manage, as students and teachers embrace digital content, connected services and sophisticated experimentation that generate vast amounts of information.
StorageCraft for Education is designed to meet the storage demands of educational organisations whose legacy storage solutions are unable to keep pace with their data growth and management needs.
Unlike existing scale-up solutions, StorageCraft for Education cost effectively handles the ever increasing amounts of data that education organisations are grappling with today. Its built-in scale-out abilities accommodate future data storage requirements, avoiding the pitfalls of upfront over-provisioning and the need for costly and complex forklift upgrades later or the creation of numerous storage islands.
Gone are the days of purchasing excess storage based on a three-to-five-year capacity plan.
StorageCraft for Education offers either a hard disk drive (HDD)-based or all-flash solution.
The all-flash solution costs less than $0.50 per effective GB. StorageCraft uniquely enables education institutions to purchase compatible SSDs at retail prices and then scale-out as needed with additional drives or nodes that can be deployed in just minutes. No configuration, no downtime, no application changes. Better still, as the retail price of SSDs continues to decline monthly, education organizations gain important cost savings on future storage purchases.
Highly affordable alternative to cloud-based storage
To save money, many organisations turn to the cloud, regarding it as an inexpensive storage solution. But there’s a better way. Over a three-year period, StorageCraft for Education is up to 50 percent less costly than many public cloud solutions, including Amazon S3 and Microsoft Azure.
And, with inline deduplication and compression, it can be 10x cheaper to own StorageCraft for Education solution based on OneBlox compared to renting cloud-based storage. What’s more, StorageCraft for Education is accessible locally and on-premises, so data can be quickly recovered at any time. Further, there are no surprise charges such as unforeseen network fees when admins retrieve the data from the cloud.
Ease of use
Ease of use is another benefit of StorageCraft for Education. StorageCraft’s OneSystem is a cloud-based management service that enables IT organisations to simply yet powerfully manage on-premises storage in any location from any browser. This means IT administrators spend less time managing storage and it frees up their time to drive strategic initiatives.
StorageCraft OneSystem consistently provides real-time storage and system health monitoring by comprehensively understanding the state of installed disk drives, networks, remotely replicated storage and more. This means potential problems can be identified and resolved before they negatively impact applications.
