    Amazon AWS

    We store our two main products in AWS. We do develop and maintain code through aws server itself. It provides a linux based server where we can have our complete project like in our local system. We use S3 storage to store any documents and sometimes provide the direct URL to the documents in the S3 storage. It provides data backup in cloud. It also has option where we can add particular IPs so that only those IP can access our product or server

    Well suited if you have a lot of data that doesn't need to be stored and read right away. I think even if you don't have much data, you can still use it for it's intended purpose to great effect, but think of it as the more data you have, the even better it will work. I don't think it would be particularly useful if you already have a slick file restore system in place and you don't need to store your data elsewhere with redundancy.

    Pros

    Amazon AWS

    • The AWS Storage Gateway can be deployed very quickly. We required only a couple of hours to get it setup and was able to present it to the backup server as a media manager and VTL drives.
    • The provisioning of the virtual tapes was also pretty easy to setup. Being able to utilize Glazier storage provided a great ROI.
    • The documentation AWS provides is very user friendly, allowing us to set up the AWS Storage Gateway the correct way.

    Nasuni

    • The management console is extremely simple and easy to navigate, making common tasks easy to do.
    • Our storage appliance is configured to snapshot data several times an hour, making the risk of data loss very low.
    • Data restores are very intuitive, and take seconds to initiate regardless of whether it is one file or 300GB of data. We have successfully restored many Gigs of data in minutes.

      Nasuni

      As I mentioned, the user interface is amazing and straight forward. It's very easy to learn how to configure and restore files. I would like a bit more reporting, especially in terms of live reporting and monitoring. The support is great when you have a question on how to do something, which helps with usability.

      Nasuni

      Again, it may have a little to do with the size and speed of your own environment, but we've been nothing but pleased with the speed of access of the files - even pulling old files from the cloud storage. Recovery of huge and many data files is a bit slow if you don't have the specs of the filer up to snuff.

      Alternatives Considered

      Amazon AWS

      AWS Storage Gateway is scalable, readily integrated, and more user-friendly as compared to Azure StorSimple. However the AWS Storage Gateway is a little-bit complex at first, it gets easier to implement as time passes by and you have more experience with it. StorSimple however is a little more complicated for any user.

      Nasuni

      The technical support and escalation path for Nasuni is much more reliable and efficient. No getting transferred to various teams. Often times, the person who answers your call is able to resolve your issue. If they cannot, they get the case assigned to the appropriate engineer right away. Time to close has always been very good.

      Return on Investment

      Amazon AWS

      • Accessibility of data in Cloud: Previously it was difficult to access our stored data.
      • Cheaper storage as opposed to physical: At this point have saved enough money (when compared to physical storage)
      • One con is the scope of services included with some features. You aye only need 10% of what's there's but paying for the other 90% you don't use cam be costly.

      Nasuni

      • Dramatically reduced time spent managing our storage platform. Quotas and reporting tools take all the guesswork out of data growth. Updates are easy to deploy. Time freed up can be used for more user-facing activities that we consider more valuable to the organization.
      • The overall stability of the platform has been very good. We have been running on the same hardware for the past four years without any performance issues.
