With the NSC-110, enterprises will be able to integrate cloud storage into existing applications, lowering the cost of storing inactive data and extending the investment already made in existing application infrastructure and operational procedures.
"By putting storage controller intelligence into the network we've liberated data from dependence on physical location and big-box storage systems," said Mark Cree, infinite io's CEO. "Imagine the cost savings and flexibility of migrating the last 20 years of inactive enterprise data off expensive primary storage to a public or private cloud, where it can be securely stored with familiar always-on access for a fraction of the cost."
infinite io makes cloud storage adoption transparent
Unlike all other enterprise cloud storage solutions, the NSC-110 does not require applications to be re-provisioned or storage to be virtualized with new file paths. It installs in front of existing storage, migrating inactive data to the cloud in real-time based on policies that align with business objectives.
Advanced analytics calculate expected savings
When installed in passive mode, the NSC-110 uses industry standard storage costs and information collected from the installed environment to calculate expected savings. IT managers can simulate a cloud storage deployment and collect real-world usage analytics with no risk to their data and no systems downtime.
infinite io increases the performance of onsite storage
When operating in active mode, the NSC-110 makes onsite storage faster by serving it out of flash memory from a reduced local file storage footprint. IT managers get low-cost capacity and performance.
The NSC-110 is in beta testing and is planned to be released during Q3 2015. Pricing starts at $50,000 and varies by configuration.
