    Pattern Overview


    CloudArray® iSCSI storage gateways make cloud storage as fast, safe and easy to access as local storage. A CloudArray virtual or physical appliance takes minutes to configure and integrates public cloud, private cloud and local or remote storage devices into flexible “Cloud SANs” that provide unlimited storage, continuous data protection, tapeless offsite backup, instant disaster recovery, and branch office storage consolidation.

    TwinStrata is an innovator in enterprise-class data storage, data protection and disaster recovery/business continuity solutions using cloud storage. With TwinStrata CloudArray®, companies of all sizes can simply and economically leverage the scalability and efficiency of cloud storage while maintaining the availability, performance and security of local storage.

    CloudArray software and hardware solutions support all file and operating systems, and deliver substantial advantages over traditional off-site storage solutions, including a pay-as-you-go model, unlimited elastic capacity, local performance, in-cloud snapshots and disaster recovery, dynamic caching, automated policies, AES256 encryption, and continuous access to data.

    Business Case

    Offsite backup. Disaster recovery. Onsite storage capacity constraints. With exponentially more data coming in all the time, the need for simple, pain-free and limitless storage has skyrocketed.

    Today’s storage professionals face a daunting task: How to modernize their storage infrastructure – effortlessly increase capacity, control costs, reduce administration, eliminate tape and decrease recovery time – while maintaining acceptable levels of security and availability required by their business?

    TwinStrata CloudArray enables organizations to migrate their storage to the cloud – making cloud storage as fast, safe and easy to access as local storage. TwinStrata provides a robust set of capabilities that enable organizations to modernize their backup, deliver seamless disaster recovery and business continuity, and unify their storage environment. As a result, organizations can develop and deliver on a long-term storage strategy that satisfies the immediate needs of today, but can be easily adjusted for the anticipated (and unforeseen!) requirements of tomorrow.

    Whether an organization seeks to slowly incorporate cloud storage into their strategy or to jump right in with an end-to-end cloud storage plan, TwinStrata’s holistic solution enables storage professionals to selectively and intelligently migrate their storage to the cloud – on their terms and on their timeline.

    Business Problem

    Traditional methods of backup, archival and disaster recovery leave businesses drowning in tape and vulnerable to the unexpected. Meanwhile, precious internal resources are wasted on low-value administrative tasks. With TwinStrata CloudArray®, companies of all sizes can simply and economically leverage the scalability and efficiency of cloud storage while maintaining the availability, performance and security of local storage.
