Are you at risk of losing customers to cloud computing services?

Cloud services are a compelling solution for end users who are looking both to reduce their costs and scale to meet peak loads. Users are increasingly testing cloud services and starting with cloud storage, where adoption is relatively simple. However, many traditional service providers will miss out as users focus on storing data with companies that also offer cloud computing services. Once an organization’s data is stored on a cloud computing service, the likelihood that it will also migrate its hosting and compute services increases substantially. Firms are driven by the allure of on-demand pricing and the desire to avoid multiple vendors and bandwidth latency issues. Service providers can mitigate this risk by partnering with a pure play storage-as-a-service provider like Nirvanix. By doing so, they can economically supplement existing services and infrastructure without needing to manage a complicated software solution.

Are you looking to build a cloud storage option but lack the resources or time?

When adding cloud storage to a service offering, service providers have two high-level options. The first is to build and manage a solution in-house by developing software or utilizing software from a “private” cloud storage provider. This option is costly, complex, and time consuming. It requires significant capital expenditures to acquire and deploy hardware and software, and necessitates adding resources to monitor, maintain, and expand the solution. The second option is to utilize a fully managed cloud storage service provider like Nirvanix. Depending on your requirements, you can either utilize Nirvanix’s existing network or, if your need is great, deploy a storage node within your facility and become part of our global Cloud Storage Network. Either way, Nirvanix manages, monitors, and maintains the solution, reducing both initial and ongoing investments. You will benefit from an additional revenue stream and reduced churn.

Why is building a private cloud an impractical solution?

Building a private cloud by utilizing off-the-shelf hardware and purchasing software is one way to ensure that customers do not move to a cloud computing service. This option, however, comes with significant risk and may lead to a competitive disadvantage. Service providers need to accurately forecast usage, which often leads to low utilization and wasted capital or over-utilization and a poor user experience. Additionally, private clouds are limited to the locations where the software and hardware are installed, putting service providers at a strategic disadvantage to competitors that have access to global storage delivery networks. By leveraging a fully managed storage-as-a-service provider with a secure global network such as Nirvanix, service providers eliminate the need to acquire, monitor, and maintain an additional set of hardware and software and gain an instant global footprint.
