Cheaper than the Cloud
Coraid SRX storage is also easier than the cloud. It’s faster too. It builds out like the cloud, yet provides the security of on-premise data.
Let me explain both how and why.
Coraid EtherDrive has the flexibility of cloud because you can grow as you go. For less than $2999, to buy your first 24 bay Coraid SRX. With that, you have the option of up to 96 TB of SSDs or 288 TB of spinning disks that you can use from any of your Windows, VMware, or Linux servers.
But you don’t have to buy all 24 disks at once! Load up only as much as you need now, and add more when it’s necessary. A 5 TB hard drive is around $150, so the incremental costs can be low.
When the SRX’s bays are full, buy another shelf. Just like the cloud, you buy what you need. Unlike the cloud, though, you control your data (and the hardware it’s stored on) as well as storage costs.
