FLEXSTORAGE

Managed storage solution monitored and maintained by Cologix 24×7.

Data is mission-critical for most businesses, so enterprises need to ensure that it’s always available when needed.

In today’s business world, priorities such as business continuity, compliance, and the desire for real‐time business intelligence reporting have resulted in an explosion in data usage and unprecedented growth in storage volumes. Implementing and maintaining adequate data storage is a struggle for many organizations. Businesses must ensure that their storage solution is easy to use, always accessible and secure, and can quickly scale data storage capacity with their needs.

FLEXStorage managed solutions provide enterprise-level data storage at an affordable price. Leveraging Storage Area Network (SAN)—a local network of multiple devices that operate on disk blocks—and Network Attached Storage (NAS)—a single storage device operating on data files—our solutions enable customers to store data securely on high-performance, high-availability storage infrastructures. These solutions, housed within Cologix’s secure data centers, are easily scalable as your storage requirements change. From slower, bulk storage space designed for backups and long-term storage, to high IO iSCSI SAN designed for intensive databases or virtualization, we have flexible solutions to meet the needs of a range of applications. FLEXStorage is fully managed and ideally suited for customers leveraging Cologix FLEXServers, FLEXCloud services, or for those who need flexible access to additional storage in support of their growing data needs.
