Object Storage

Robust and cost effective cloud object storage hosted in our New Zealand Data Centres
Cloud Object Storage allows your business to purchase what you need, as you need it without the upfront investment in storage and infrastructure.

Why you need Object Storage

Data is growing faster than ever before and managing it and the costs associated with it can easily get on top of you.

According to IDC, only 10% to 20% of data is actively used. That means over 80% of your data is accessed infrequently and could be moved to lower cost archive storage. This frees up production storage, lowers backup costs, backup windows and improves recovery time.

With Plan B cloud based object storage you can migrate less frequently accessed data, backups and archives from your production storage, freeing up capacity and lowering costs in one easy step.
