StoneFly Introduces Enterprise Storage Provisioning for MSPs & OrganizationsMay 9, 2019
StoneFly Inc., the original pioneer of the iSCSI storage protocol, virtual storage appliances, and hyperconverged storage solution, recently introduced StoneFusion MSP edition.
StoneFusion MSP edition is a software-defined storage solution purpose-built for Manage Service Providers (MSPs) and organizations. The enterprise-level solution is designed to enable users to consolidate storage infrastructure and provision cloud and on-premises multi-tenant Network Attached Storage (NAS), Storage Area Network (SAN) and S3 object Storage.
StoneFusion MSP edition enable MSPs to provide Storage as a Service (SaaS) solution. Organizations can also leverage StoneFusion MSP to configure and dedicate storage resources for different departments and branch offices.
StoneFly’s enterprise storage provisioning product enables users to configure dedicated enterprise data services such as Image-based snapshots, synchronous and asynchronous replication, encryption, deduplication, thin provisioning, erasure coding, and more.
The software-defined storage also makes it easy to dynamically scale, allocate and repurpose dedicated storage quotas in a disruption-free and quick process.
In today’s world the common practice of provisioning few terabytes (TBs) of data storage no longer meets customer requirements and expectations. Clients, departments, or branch offices need fully provisioned and dedicated enterprise storage and data services to effectively control and manage enterprise applications and workloads. In order to provide the required storage resources, MSPs and organizations have to purchase dedicated and separate storage equipment for each client, department, branch offices or use-cases. This practice creates a complex, inefficient and expensive infrastructure with spiraling storage silos to manage.
“MSPs and organizations now can create dedicated, fully-provisioned storage resources for users, such as NAS, SAN and object, with full data services on-demand with StoneFly StoneFusion MSP,”- said John Harris, director of technical sales at StoneFly Inc.
Compared to the cost implications of acquiring dedicated storage infrastructure, StoneFusion MSP with its simple management and flexible storage provisioning reduces CapEx and OpEx by 10x or more.
StoneFusion MSP delivers clients and departments the full appliance experience with provisioned storage resources and data services.
