TIMG Object Storage: S3 storage, a real option for all scenarios
TIMG Object Storage is a S3 compatible storage class for archival data that is typically accessed less frequently and offers low per Gb storage price and per Gb retrieval fee. This low price point makes TIMG Object Storage ideal for long-term storage, backups, and as a data store for disaster recovery. Below are some of the benefits and features of our Object Storage Solution.
The enormous disruption brought about by the COVID-19 “lockdown strategy” has seen many businesses close-up shop until further notice. IT managers and departments the world over have undertaken a gargantuan effort to enable entire companies to work from home with a remarkable degree of success. As teams come to terms with the “new reality” and try to recover from the disruption, questions are emerging about business continuity options, disaster recovery planning and the ongoing demands around core infrastructure which still needs to run and always needs to be backed up.
As we, ourselves, grapple with the reality of COVID-19, we are faced with the very real restrictions placed on physical access to our client sites and data centers where we perform physical tape rotations for backup. For these clients not already utilising our cloud BaaS offerings, TIMG is happy to offer our Object Storage product as a drop-in replacement compatible with all the major backup software suites.
Our Object Storage Solution is ideal for long-term storage, backups, and as a data store for disaster recovery. Running in the TIMG Cloud & compatible with the vast majority of the S3 API, our solution is secure, meets data sovereignty requirements and at $0.02/GB AUD is extremely economical. Recognising these exceptional circumstances for our clients, TIMG is offering up to 20TB storage free of charge for 2 months.
