Cloud storage gives Adapt data centre customers access to on demand enterprise-class data storage services, avoiding investment in expensive storage area networks and synchronous replication licenses. With a range of options for resilient mirroring and guaranteed levels of performance, Adapt designs services that exactly match your specific storage requirements, delivering to a cost per GB per month model.
Adapt offers both IP and fibre channel presentations for cloud storage, delivered directly to your cabinet by our data centre team. As well as providing the cable, we will also manage any SAN or network switches used to provide the service.
Where performance and security are critical to operations, we simply provision your own dedicated Virtual Storage Vault. The vault not only delivers the highest possible security but also allows Adapt to completely delegate storage management to you; alternatively, Adapt will monitor the virtual storage vault on your behalf, responding 24/7 to any issues. We also deliver dedicated physical spindles, often a requirement in meeting performance or compliance goals.
In addition to a vast array of configuration options, Adapt also offers industry-leading snapshot capability. Guaranteed to work with many applications including VMware, Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server and Oracle databases, the service provides near-instant capability to snapshot, clone and roll back data. Snapshots consume a fraction of the original disk and provide a highly effective mechanism for working in test and development environments - in production environments, snapshots represent a highly performant way to protect systems.
