What is FlexTier?

FlexTier provides access to a virtually limitless pool of off-premise storage through StorNext advanced data management software. Just set your policies based on your business requirements and StorNext automatically copies or moves data to highly reliable, always-available cloud storage—with no scripts, programming, or manual processes. Use it for enhanced data protection, on-the-fly scalability, or to offload content from primary storage. The choice is yours.

Everything you want from the cloud without the hurdles.

StorNext users not only enjoy the industry’s leading storage management software with intelligent policy-based tiering built in, but also the ability to tier to the cloud whenever the need arises. FlexTier’s seamless integration means there’s nothing to install, no cloud gateway hardware to set up, no programming, and no manual processes. You can go from needing capacity to problem solved in minutes.

FlexTier Benefits Diagram

Precisely the capacity you need, exactly when you need it.

FlexTier supports a broad range of use cases, depending on your need at the moment. Primary storage is your most important resource and FlexTier can hold finished work, saving your valuable high-performance disk for more demanding tasks. FlexTier Software can tier to multiple locations simultaneously for multiple copies in multiple locations. Regardless of your reasons, FlexTier puts the cloud within reach—use as much or as little as you need.

Data integrity and privacy are built in at the core.

FlexTier builds reliability and security into the architecture and the software that drives it. We start with a platform of the most trusted cloud service providers in the world. The FlexTier hardware infrastructure utilizes distributed, multi-copy data protection. Plus, your archive files are encrypted in transit and at rest. Combine this with the automatic policies driven by StorNext and you can rest assured that your files are safe.

Leverage the cloud and maintain control.

With its zero CAPEX model, FlexTier allows you to leverage additional storage when you need it, with no upfront cost. Depending on your situation, you may find that cloud storage operating expenses can also be less than owning and operating hardware. FlexTier employs a pay-for-usage model that’s easy to understand and you’ll receive billing alerts to help control costs. Scale up and scale down based on your requirements.

Effective data management is about putting data in the right place at the right time with the right technology, guided by a customer’s workflow or application.
