$2 an Hour for a Petabyte of Hybrid Cloud Storage?!?
It is funny how we value certain things more than others. “I am not paying £30 a month for broadband!” we say yet the daily benefit that service brings far outweighs the £1/day that it costs us.
Many companies happily pay for services that do not add much value to the business yet getting buy-in to implement new technologies that certainly will bring financial and operational benefit is not always so easy.
To address this I took the cost of providing 2 and 20 Petabytes of MatrixStore hybrid cloud storage (object storage platform whose ‘job’ is to protect an organisations most valuable assets, increase operational efficiency, empower creativity and enable global collaboration) and represented it as an hourly cost.
Compared to the cost of services you can use on a daily basis (see below), the ability to protect 2 petabytes of content for just $8 per hour offers incredible value.The twenty petabyte pack offers an even more incredible $2 / hour when broken down to a per petabyte price.
$20 / Hour
You’ll need at least two guards that won’t take naps
$35 / Hour
They’ll spend all day looking for LTO tapes & content
$60 / Hour
You’ll need one after the stress of managing legacy storage
$450 / Hour
You might need one if you lose client data
Implementing our media focused hybrid cloud storage platform will save you time and money as the media manager will be more focused on tasks that will bring value to the business, meaning you might not need that lawyer quite so often.
If this is of interest to you:
The $8/hour* for providing MatrixStore, trusted by global broadcasters, is dwarfed by the benefits gained (operational & financial). Even $45/hr is a steal for a 20PB config giving super fast, super safe access to all your archive content.
It’s time to think differently and Object Matrix are more than happy to help you to do that.
