Storage as a Service

Pay monthly for the storage you use

Purchasing, hosting and managing an enterprise storage platform is costly and complex. Even with the most advanced capacity planning, predicting what you need and when you need it is a challenge and often results in large capital expenditure, just when you don’t need it.   

Proact’s Storage as a Service (STaaS), our unique Private Cloud Service, is designed to address these issues. Providing you with a managed, on-premise storage platform charged as a service, STaaS takes the stress of managing your storage away from your IT staff and allows you to align your IT spend with data consumption.

How it works

Proact’s Storage as a Service (STaaS) is a unique Private Cloud Service.  It provides you with an on-premise storage platform charged as a service, the aim being to align IT spend with data consumption.  You pay monthly per GB of storage used with the ability to scale up and down as your business needs change.  Key features:

  • A cost per GB, monthly payment model - without being a lease or finance agreement
  • Proact own the asset, not you - so it is our problem to maintain and refresh it
  • Design, planning and implementation by Proact’s expert consultants
  • A choice of 24x7 service options from support to fully managed by Proact
