Storage as-a-Service Briefing

2 hours
This briefing is targeted at customers who wish to deploy an as-a-Service consumption model for their storage infrastructure.

Goals & Objectives

This briefing is aimed at comparing the different Storage as-a-Service (STaaS) models available for organizations to leverage in their infrastructure and align their requirements to the available services in order to help organizations make the right choice and understand how this will affect their CapEx and OpEx spend going forward.

During this briefing, we can review as-a-service models from

  • Dell Technology (pay as you grow, flex on demand and data center Utility).
  • NetApp Keystone.
  • Pure Storage PaaS (Pure as-a-Service).
  • HPE Greenlake.
  • Winthrop financial.

We will look at the various minimum commitment from each of those offerings, both for term lengths as well as capacity consumed. We will also cover the sizing methodology for the configurations shipped, how consumed capacity is metered, what kind of capacity headroom gets delivered, how systems get upgraded throughout the contract lifecycle, any fees attached to consuming burst capacity, and so on.

This briefing should give you a good understanding of the various STaaS offerings, how it can affect your company's spend and when is this a good fit.
