Our client, a Crown Research Institute, had a storage problem. With research data spread across multiple on-premises sites, maintaining multiple storage platforms was costly and challenging, straining their in-house Operations team.
To address this, they turned to cloud providers, including local IaaS providers and larger hyperscale companies, while considering latency concerns.
The goal was to secure scalable storage options for different data and accessibility types, considering factors such as age and application design. To ensure high availability for project datasets, the client even considered hybrid options, including hosting and in-house storage.
