  • Archival of large files which would otherwise need on-premise storage solutions.
  • Multi-geography storage (important in terms of data protection laws) means that data can be stored in the appropriate jurisdiction.
  • Infinitely scalable, so no concerns about capacity or building the next generation of storage solutions.
  • I have personally struggled with the NFS integration.
  • Still an early generation of product compared to competitors.
  • Ease of use could be improved upon.

  • Is NFS compatible so easy to integrate
  • Snapshot support, replication and encryption for the highest data security standard
  • Up to 12 TB of shared storage
  • The possibility to create a snapshot and move on another data center on another app
  • The limits in operations linked to the capacity is a bit complicated
  • Would be nice to have a mechanism that automatically increase IOPS when required
