Netmagic has launched Netmagic Tiered Secure Storage (NTSS), a Storage-as-a-Service that provides metered IOPS.
The company claims that this is the first such service in India. NTSS provides performance with guarantee on pay-as-you-use model which so far required investment in dedicated storage.
The starting price of NTSS is Rs 8 per GB per month. It 8 varies according to the IOPS slabs and volume of storage customers choose.
Netmagic, an NTT Communications company and a Datacenter Infrastructure Lifecycle Management (DILM) service provider, said NTSS is a customized multi-platform software-defined storage offering available to public cloud customers as well as customers with single-tenant environments such as dedicated servers or private clouds.
Software-defined storage allows offloading the computationally heavy aspects of storage-management-related functions enabling higher amount of CPU power availability within the cloud.
NTSS offers QoS by guaranteeing Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) at the application level with total tenant isolation. IOPS is a common performance measurement used to benchmark storage and application performance and is an important factor when it comes to running critical applications.
“NTSS will be a game-changer in India’s storage services space and we are proud to be the first company in the industry to offer tiered secure storage solutions on cloud with the highest Quality of Service (QoS),” said Nitin Mishra, senior vice president, Products & Services, Netmagic.
Customers have the flexibility to choose from 12 IOPS slabs starting from 50 IOPS up to 6000 IOPS and storage capacities starting from 100 GB. Customers also have the choice to deploy the service across platforms – be itSimpliCloud, Netmagic’s public cloud service, or customers’ own private cloud.
NTSS offers a pay-as-you-go tariff model where there are no Capex costs involved. Customers can also provision storage instances with the highest available IOPS at the minimum storage slab. These features will allow customers to provision high IOPS storage for small to medium workloads at 1/50th the cost of dedicated storage.
