STORAGE AS A SERVICE
As enterprise applications become more IO intensive, flash storage is emerging as the most desirable platform for these workloads.
Unfortunately, all-flash arrays or even hybrid arrays often come at significant cost, putting them out of reach for many organisations.
Cloud Services from Tecknosoft
Tecknosoft's Service Flash solution offers organisations the chance to harness flash storage like never before, without the costly expense and then burden of tuning, patching and upgrading on-premise systems. A highly aff ordable service, it offers the freedom to choose the mix of capacity and IOPs performance that's right for your applications, backed up by unmatched Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees. The result is just about any enterprise can now share in the benefits that flash storage can deliver.
The Infrastructure you need, whenever you need it
Service Flash is an enterprise-grade, high performance, low latency storage platform delivered from our world-class data centres, located in the UK. Whilst delivering storage on-demand as a cloud solution is in itself not revolutionary, the highly innovative infrastructure we have developed enables users of the service to individually specify the storage capacity (in GB) and performance (in IOPs) they need to meet the specific requirements of applications or workloads. Importantly, cast iron QoS guarantees, only made possible by the infrastructure, are agreed for the entire duration of the contract, so service remains the same, regardless of how many users may be sharing in our platform. The result is an easy-to-consume storage solution, built to handle practically any business critical workload, whilst delivering the perfect blend of capacity, performance and security.
How Service Flash works
Breaking the connection between capacity and performance is the critical feature of Service Flash. Unlike other, cloud service providers who offer 'typical' performance levels from flash storage, which leads to unpredictable performance and degradation over time, we are able to guarantee this through the lifetime of the contract. Again, unlike others if you need more performance, we won't tie you in to purchasing more capacity. Each feature is tuned independently based on your own requirements. For security conscious customers or those operating in highly regulated industries, 256-bit AES encrypted storage is also available for additional peace of mind. Similarly, all connectivity between your infrastructure and our storage platform is also authenticated, meaning you only ever see your storage. The service follows a simple charging model, which enables the services to be consumed on capacity, charged cost-per-GB and performance, charged cost-per-100IOPs. Service Flash can be provided to customers who have already co-located infrastructure into Tecknosoft data centres, with options for single or dual site storage. Alternatively, it can be used as a complementary service to Service Compute, where high performance storage is necessary. You have complete freedom over the environment too, thanks to the simple interface offered through the Service portal. Through this console, service changes can be made and realised instantly.
