Elev8 Storage Solutions

Oper8 Archive-as-a-Service: based on our StrongBox software-free archive solution, deploy a StrongBox hybrid NAS on-premise (either a physical appliance, or as a virtual NAS on your existing VMware platform) or in one of our Australian data centres. With storage libraries capacity from 50TB to in excess of 10PB, your archived data remains online, is searchable and can be retrieved on demand.  Simple export of data to LTFS tape can also be used to move terabytes of data without experiencing network bandwidth bottlenecks.

Oper8 Backup-as-a-Service: based on our StrongBox software-free backup solution, deploy a StrongBox hybrid NAS on-premise (either a physical appliance, or as a virtual NAS on your existing VMware platform) or in one of our Australian data centres.
