Regardless if your organization is small, medium or a large global enterprise, you can use SteelStore to modernize your data protection and archiving infrastructure by integrating the power and benefits of cloud storage. SteelStore allows organizations to:

Reduce costs by up to 80%
Leveraging low cost, pay-for-use cloud storage, SteelStore enables you to store large backup and archive data sets at prices far below existing storage arrays. Advanced, variable segment length de-duplication shrinks data sets by 10 to 30x on average, to speed transmission and greatly reduce cloud storage costs.

Achieve immediate recovery while reducing risk
A secure, intelligent local cache and the ability to replicate data to another SteelStore appliance allows you to immediately recover important data without transmission delays from the cloud.  Free, read-only SteelStore virtual appliances are also available to deliver a fast, low cost disaster recovery option for important data sets.  Strong encryption of data at rest and during transmission delivers end to end security with the encryption key stored safely under administrator control in the data center.

Eliminate the burden of tape-based data protection
SteelStore supports all popular data protection applications and helps you eliminate tape, tape management, and vaulting, freeing your administrators from mundane tasks while speeding recovery and reducing costs.

Slow storage growth
Reduce on premises storage growth by archiving old and seldom accessed data to secure, low cost cloud storage. SteelStore seamlessly allows cloud storage to become a low cost storage tier, perfect for the long term storage of these data sets.

Harness the power of cloud storage
Take advantage of rapidly declining cloud storage prices by integrating cloud storage into your infrastructure with SteelStore.  Cloud storage offers real time scalability, unmatched flexibility and extreme data durability all for pennies per GB.  With cloud storage you pay only for what you use and get fast access from any location with internet access.
