A recent research report by global IT industry analyst and marketing strategy firm Neuralytix detailed the abilities and challenges of on-premises Storage-as-a-Service (StaaS) offerings and compared the capabilities of four vendors in the market space. The review presents a comparison of features and price of offerings from Nutanix, Pure Storage, and StorONE. The report also documents how on-premises StaaS offerings differ from cloud-native storage vendor, Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The Neuralytix Insight looked at the reasons for the rapid and dramatic shift IT organizations are experiencing in how they deploy storage and recommend the StaaS model, which delivers capacity and performance for a periodic fee, to overcome them. The StaaS model provides capacity and performance for a periodic fee based on an organization’s exacts needs.
According to the report, successful StaaS solutions must offer flexible and granular capacity changes, variable performance guarantees, no long-term commitments, high data availability, and durability as well as being easy to manage and procure.
“Neuralytix believes that users should start a journey towards subscription-based data storage,” the report reads. “In doing so, it allows the balancing of storage costs against the value of the data it stores, thus giving a clear return on investment (ROI), as well as giving rise to new economic considerations for how data can improve the success of the user’s organization.”
The comparison between StaaS models better enables readers to understand the economic considerations of the solutions, supported protocols, and ROI each vendor provides to satisfy users’ differences in philosophical, technical, and political approaches to their infrastructure needs. In addition to highlighting the benefits and considerations needed when evaluating StaaS offerings, the report detailed the basic features of each of the providers and a dollar-by-terabyte-by-month price comparison between the vendors.
