ICG offers a fully-managed, on-premises, pay as you go, storage service, that eliminates technological, operational and financial risk.
Get the enterprise-grade features you expect from a modern storage system: snapshots, high-availability, mirroring, dedicated resources, security, and more. Pay only for what you use with Storage as a Service (STaaS).
ICG STaaS is available on premises, or in the cloud, pay-as-you-go, and only pay for what you use, without the need to send your data to the cloud, but still benefit from the OPEX pay-as-you-go model you have come to expect from the cloud. You can have primary storage on-premise, with replication and backup in the cloud, or keep it all on premise and still only pay for what you use.
ICG STaaS provides all the advanced features you expect from enterprise storage, including Flash, Snaps, Replication, Block SAN, File NAS, S3 Object, IP and Fiber Channel, with the convenience and flexibility of ICG's pay-as-you-go, managed service. You choose the capacity and performance requirements, then we ship you the gear, and manage it, via a combination of AI and ICG's expert engineers. Scale up and down at anytime and only pay for what you use. — How much does STaaS cost?
Block, file, and object storage. NFS, CIFS, FC, iSCSI and S3 protocols. Create a storage solution tailored to your needs, in the cloud or on premises. Scale up and down on demand, with a highly available, multi-controller solution, that supports all protocols, with no need for dedicated block, file or object arrays and you can change your protocol support at any time on-the-fly.
Virtual Private Storage Arrays provide file, block and object services that transparently scale-up and scale-out, to optimize for dynamic requirements.
Scale up by adding compute, memory, or capacity resources to existing VPSAs. Scale out by adding new VPSAs to your on-premise ICG STaaS service.
Leverage a VPSA cluster for multiple mixed workloads from high performance databases, to virtualization, file sharing, and long-term backup retention. Pay only for what you use on a monthly basis.
Block Fiber Channel support is great for VMs and Databases, native CIFS SMB is great for consolidating Windows File Servers and NAS appliances, whilst Object Storage is a great for backups such as Veeam Scale-Out Backup Repository (SOBR). A single VPSA cluster can mix resources for File, Block and Object, without requiring physical nodes for each protocol.
All Virtual Private Storage Arrays eliminate single points-of-failure and are provisioned with dedicated resources to ensure high availability and predictable performance while maximizing privacy and security.
ICG All-Flash VPSAs are ideal for applications and use cases that demand very high sustained performance at a compelling price point. Unlike storage offerings from leading cloud service providers, ICG All-Flash VPSAs put the control, benefits, and economics of combining all-flash performance with data reduction directly into the hands of users.
Hybrid VPSAs provide large scale hard disk-based capacity with 10TB and 14TB drives. Optionally, Hybrid VPSAs can utilize solid state disks (SSDs) as an adjustable “flash cache” to accelerate storage performance. Flash and HDD hybrid configurations deliver an optimum balance of performance and economics for many applications. Maximize capacity and tune performance to align with application requirements.
Get an overview of the ICG VPSA architecture that enables on-premise Storage as a Service (STaaS).
ICG STaaS offers enterprise-class features, including snapshots, replication, multi-zone high availability, online volume migration, thin provisioning, NFS and CIFS, with support for hidden shares for greater control over network access. Active Drectory integration means you can manage the NAS volumes from ICG STaaS just like any Windows File Server.
Adjust your storage mix and protocols as needed, using a GUI and REST API. Adjust processor performance, the quantity and types of drives (SSD, SAS, NL-SAS), and the level of data protection (RAID 1, 5, 6, 10) at any time. Graphical performance logging allows you to oversee and optimize application performance.
ICG STaaS allows you to select your drive type mix from SSD, SAS, NL-SAS, NVMe Cache and RAID levels to fit your requirements. You can go all-in with all-flash, select a hybrid mix with flash cache or build a cold tier for backup and archive with NL-SAS.
ICG STaaS is built with security in mind. Your data is stored on dedicated hardware on your premises or in the cloud, and protected with in-flight and at-rest encryption. You manage your security and encryption keys, so only you control access to your data.
