IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS BLOCK AND FILE . . . NOW OBJECT
In the beginning, storage originally came in two forms: Block and Storage. The most universal form of storage is block but it has been notoriously expensive and cannot exist in a cloud environment. Today there is another form of storage that consumers are implementing into their environments - Cloud Object Storage.
Cloud Object Storage has near infinite capacity, allowing you to store a massive amount of data relatively inexpensively. It also has the potential to grow far beyond normal storage capacity, giving the consumer the advantage of expanding their data storage without having to go through numerous configurations.
NEW NEEDS DEMAND A NEW STORAGE ARCHITECTURE
Today’s exponential data growth requires a new kind of storage approach - one that delivers choice and consistency, with:
- Flexibility to meet your enterprise’s rapidly changing needs -
- Scale for any storage demand large or small across network -
- Simplicity in management and cost -
Storage as-a-Service for Files, Imaging, Video, Architectural and Seismic Data
- Global Locking
- Global Dedupe
- Global Namespace
- Unlimited Storage
- Disaster Recovery
- DB Dump
- OPEX Savings
Data is available, even in the face of a regional outage.
Data is protected with no external key management required, even in the face of regional security breach.
Why KeyCloud Storage as a Service?
Have your storage requirements continued to scale?
Applications need sustainability and access to compete in hyper-competitive markets. Make an object and file storage choice that will have the economic and resiliency advantages to give a competitive edge.
Our service is dramatically more reliable, less complex and more cost-efficient than traditional storage! Traditional storage requires 3.6 TBs raw storage capacity for 1 TB of usable storage. Our object storage requires only 1.7 TBs of raw storage capacity for 1 TB of usable storage.
Included 3-site resilience
No performance degradation
Petabytes of global
Collaborate across multiple sites
- File System lets users in different offices work together like they’re in the same room – even on the largest, most complex files
- Simpler, faster, and less expensive than deploying primary, backup, and archive storage at each site, and running WAN optimization over private networks
- Provides a locking, immediately consistent global file system for storing your application data that spans all your offices

Logistics Client Eliminates Storage Issues
The customer, a popular logistics company, used traditional on premise storage infrastructure, located at the Switch Supernap, Las Vegas location.
The customer had a mission critical issue when they ran out of storage. Capacity was at 96% when they contacted KeyInfo.
Due to the critical nature of the situation, KeyInfo quickly analyzed and designed architecture according to the performance requirements of the customer. KeyInfo expedited a 10GB cross-connect from the customer’s location to KeyInfo’s location at Switch.
Leveraging the ability to infinite scale and STaaS’ flat-rate cross connect fees for Switch customers, our customer now has a solution that is built for growth with a reduction in CAPEX costs.
