Delivering your business the promise of simplicity and flexibility

Introducing UltraIO-as-a-Service

Businesses today must be creative and agile to stay viable and competitive while constantly navigating complex challenges such as budget constraints, rapid and unpredictable data growth, and operational complexity.

Whether your goal is driving innovation, getting to market faster or creating differentiation, your data needs to create value. UltraIO-as-a-Service provides a simple and flexible storage consumption model aligned to the fluctuating needs of your business.

What is Storage-as-a-Service?

STaaS is a flexible on-demand storage subscription model that enables organizations to meet their storage needs with financial predictability. Customers pay for the storage capacity they need when they need it.

Why Use StaaS? The STaaS model provides an alternate way to consume storage as a subscription, a different acquisition model than Capex purchases, and positions businesses to respond to changing market conditions faster.

STaaS can help these common challenges:

The difference is simplicity. That’s what sets us apart.
