RSTOR Answers

Written by Paul Buttle

Today we launch a new blog series entitled “RSTOR Answers.”

Our goal with this weekly series is to answer some of the most FAQ’s in the cloud industry. Whether you choose RSTOR (which we expect you will once you spend some time with us) or another vendor, we want to help you make informed decisions about the cloud and to better understand the potential of “living in the cloud”.

We at RSTOR strive to bring transparency, efficiency, and value to the cloud through these videos, blogs, and of course our products. And in this spirit of transparency, we’ll throw in a little shameless self-promotion along the way. Don’t worry it will be short and painless, we promise.

Here’s the “funny” thing about most cloud companies. They supply a technology service to you. Yet they act like you work for them. So let’s start with the biggest question we always get: How can you make the cloud less expensive and faster?

The cloud industry is dominated by mega companies with very restrictive policies about when, where, and how you can access your data. You can’t always move data to where you need it, and even if you can, expect the fees to start piling up like dollars/pounds/euros-per-mile in a taxi cab. These companies seem to have an “our cloud, our rules” mentality.

It’s your data. Why do you have to pay to access or move it?

RSTOR thinks there is a better way—one where the customer is in charge. By investing heavily in our own technology and fabric, we’re making the cloud less expensive and easier to use. That means no fees for accessing or moving your data. That’s the way the cloud should be, yet you won’t get that with most other cloud companies.

We encourage you to watch this video to learn more and to visit RSTOR Space and RSTOR Transporter to find out how to remove these unnecessary data restrictions.

 

 

Working together with RSTOR you can change “our cloud, our rules” into “my data, my choice.”

We think the choice is simple, but, just like with your data, we believe it’s up to you.

Next week, RSTOR Answers, “What are the upcoming challenges in the cloud industry?”

Over the coming weeks and months, you’ll start to see some visual and cosmetic changes at RSTOR and I want to take a few minutes to explain what is happening and why.

Accelerating Insights to Action – Part V

Speed to insight has long been an important objective, but users are often frustrated by delays in getting from data to insights, sometimes due not to technology but rather to project issues. Challenges are only growing as data, especially streaming data, gets more voluminous, varied, and moves with greater velocity. Fortunately, cloud vendors are providing solutions and options to fit ambitious use cases as well as corresponding analytics and AI workloads.
