Storage

Business as usual or can storage still bring a revolution?

Experienced. Independent. Open-minded

Trends such as all-flash arrays offer high performance. But often it's cost, not access time, that needs to come down. The cloud also offers opportunities, but only if you can navigate challenges around security, DR and data locality regulations. We're experienced and independent, meaning we're not only qualified, but also free, to recommend what's right for you.

At the core of your data centre

At the core of your data centre

Storage underpins everything. You must not only select the right technology, but also size it to deliver the right levels of capacity, performance and data protection. Thanks to our expertise and partnerships with the most innovative and renowned storage providers, we help you do both. Since 1994, we've led the way with new storage technologies and world-class enterprise solutions.

Our approach

Our approach

Which storage solution is right for you? It's one that meets your needs, not that of our bottom line or a particular vendor. We can provide storage solutions from your premises, from our data centre, or from both (hybrid solutions often work best); whatever meets your needs in terms of compatibility, availability, performance, security, data protection, cost and more. We also provide all the ongoing support you need, to ensure the storage solution we agree on, stays stable and available, day in, day out.

To cloud or not to cloud?

To cloud or not to cloud?

The cloud offers ease and simplicity, so why not put all your storage there? But how will you back it up? What would happen in the event of an outage or a disaster? Should you replicate to a second location? What costs would be involved? And what are the implications for data locality regulations, such as the GDPR?

Cost and latency, considered

Cost and latency, considered

We’re constantly developing our knowledge and capabilities surrounding storage solutions that are on-premises, in the cloud (public and/or private), or in both. Cloud storage sounds simple when explained by a cloud provider, but we also consider costs and latency. We could help you, for example, select the best-fit flash storage solution with cost management features, such as automatic tiering to a cloud.

Security, prioritised

Security, prioritised

How do you properly secure your data, especially if it's in the cloud? Which cloud provider should you use? How can you store data in the cloud whilst complying with regulations, such as the GDPR? The collective experience and knowledge shared amongst our European network will help provide answers to these questions and many more.

What our customers had to say

Proact’s service has offered us a far more efficient solution that significantly increases performance and provides a guaranteed cost per GB, making it easy to predict storage costs over the next three years.

Michael Jopling, Services Infrastructure Manager, Pinsent Masons

Our cooperation with Proact has gone well. They understand our wishes and requirements, and a project team was put together at Proact when we had selected a solution. They looked at the more technical aspects of our various storage and performance requirements and came up with detailed specifications for a solution that would be ideal for us.

Ian Lissimore, IT Systems Administrator, Copenhagen University

We have built up our entire IT and storage environment so that it adds value to the company. This means that flexibility, reliability, minimal redundancy and high performance are crucial to us. It also means that we cannot use outdated equipment for our business, and so we have also upgraded with more emphasis on the storage environment together with Proact.
