StoneFly customers can now take advantage of the productive and trusted Azure cloud platform, with streamlined deployment and management.
StoneFly cloud storage provides enterprise storage (SAN, NAS, and object) with a complete set of enterprise data services. StoneFly cloud storage enables users to combine S3 object and Azure Blob storage in the same cloud, allowing users to test out different environments in Microsoft Azure's secure cloud without having to manage multiple platforms. This makes StoneFly cloud storage suitable for DevOps, software testing, and production. Additionally, the enterprise cloud storage facilitates use cases such as file storage, collaboration and sharing, target storage for virtual machines (VMs), immutable backup and DR, meeting regulatory compliance, and more.
Furthermore, with advanced built-in data services, you can secure your workloads from ransomware and data loss using immutable snapshots, optimize storage consumption with deduplication and thin provisioning, keep data safe with encryption, set up cross-platform multi-vendor redundancy with sync and async replication, archive data for years in scalable petabyte-scale repositories, and the choice to store data across multiple clouds (no vendor lock-in) and locations; or at a centralized cloud storage.
“Whether it’s building a collaborative cloud environment using StoneFly NAS, running high-performance structured workloads in Azure with StoneFly iSCSI, storing data for years in S3 tiers, or all of the above, our cloud storage in Azure offers you a versatile solution that fits multiple use cases at every scale, starting from a few gigabytes to petabytes, and at a competitive price point,” said Mo Tahmasebi, founder and CEO of StoneFly.
