Dedicated large-scale storage
Multi PB means economical
storage in your cloud
We build and maintain multi-petabyte data repositories to share satellite images taken by satellites of the European Space Agency under the Copernicus program.
We maintain several multi-petabyte storage clusters for European institutions, and the data stored there is used daily for weather forecasts which everyone uses. We understand very well that every project of this scale is specific. That is why we customize our solutions to the individual needs of our customers, knowing that a one-size-fits-all approach does not work.
any EU location
We know how to build large-scale storage
We are maintaining and expending one of the largest data repositories in Europe, holding dozens of PB data. We know how to scale solutions and optimize them to provide the best performance in a specific scenario. Our public clouds and data repositories demonstrate how we work and what we can do.
We provide a comprehensive solution and take responsibility for every component
We offer a comprehensive service, and therefore we are responsible for every aspect of it, from the server room floor to service management software which eliminates the splitting of responsibility among many providers. This structure also accelerates failure diagnosis and troubleshooting. On top of this, there is no need to determine the primary cause of the failure on the customer side.
We customise the connection method to the customer’s specifics
The data storage connected to the computer environment depends on the type of data and its processing method. Following a thorough analysis, we suggest solutions that meet customer requirements in terms of bandwidth, operations per second, data access protocols used, and costs.
Support in any EU location
CloudFerro maintains and supports its systems in any EU country. This allows our private clouds to be near the data which reduces the cost of data transmission and speeds up processing.
A transparent and customer-friendly service buying model
Our services are billed based on easily measurable metrics that can be tailored to match user-consumption patterns. We have an installation fee, and increases in basic parameters, such as making more space for object storage or increasing the space available on SSDs, translates into a linear monthly charge or a one-off fee.
CloudFerro specializes in providing private storage solutions. Our data repositories are mostly based on the CEPH distributed open-source storage system, which is scalable to thousands of nodes (computers) thus offering petabytes of safe and highly available distributed mass storage with excellent performance. We ensure a high level of security and reliability of operations that has been proven in many deployments.
