Should you keep your On-Premises NAS: Upgrade, Pay Maintenance or Public Cloud?

The maintenance bill is due for your on-premises SAN/NAS–or it just increased. It’s hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars just to keep your existing storage gear under maintenance. And you know you will need to purchase more storage capacity for this aged hardware.

Do you renew and commit another 3-5 years by paying the storage bill and further commit to a data center architecture? Do you make a forklift upgrade and buy new SAN/NAS gear or move to hyperconverged infrastructure? Do you move to the AWS cloud for greater flexibility and agility? Will you give up security and data protection?

In this webinar and demo, we covered:

1. Pros/Cons: on-premises SAN/NAS vs. hyperconverged infrastructure vs. AWS cloud storage
2. Demo: “Lift and shift” on-premises storage to AWS without re-architecting applications
3. How to fund a move to public cloud storage with existing budget
4. TCO analysis
5. Other public cloud use cases
