What is Cloud Storage (S4)?

Exponential-e's low cost S4 Cloud Storage solution is a multi-purpose, software-defined object storage solution that will take your business to the next level, and lower your operational costs with unmatched storage efficiency, resiliency and simplicity. Built from the ground-up to support multiple protocols, our low cost S4 storage solution simplifies storage for traditional as well as next-generation workloads with global access and protection.

Disruptive technology trends such as Cloud, Big Data, mobile and social media are redefining the way we work and live, and are revolutionising the application landscape. With the adoption of Public and Private Cloud technology, organisations are continually looking for more efficient storage solutions to manage today’s hyperscale growth.

Exponential-e's S4 Cloud Storage solution provides a complete object storage infrastructure designed to meet the requirements of a new generation of IT workloads.

Regardless of the size of your organisation, Exponential-e's solution brings simplicity and scale of Public and Private Cloud services to anyone - with the trust, reliability and support you expect from Exponential-e. Our S4 solution is accessible in the same way as Public Cloud object storage, and is optimised for workloads that have unique data access requirements, such as Cloud and Big Data.

Cloud Storage: What is it and how will it enable your business?

Collecting data has rarely been a problem for business, and the falling cost of storage makes it relatively cheap to retain information indefinitely. But the low headline cost of storage masks a larger problem - the cost of managing ever increasing volumes of data.

79% of IT managers named managing storage growth as their most pressing business pain, well ahead of backup and recovery in second place.
