Data Freedom

Store your data adjacent to the Cloud – not in it! Cost effectively make your data available to whatever cloud services you want. Destroy egress fees. Avoid cloud lock-in.

Private storage and data transfer for public cloud services

Businesses want to leverage the rapid innovations appearing out of the cloud ecosystem, but to do that most effectively, they need to make their proprietary data readily available to the new applications.

If that data is stored in the public cloud. then it’s going to face considerable egress fees to pull that data into an application on another cloud. Those costs can be substantial depending on the volume of data.

Data Freedom minimizes those costs by over 70% by hosting the data outside of any public cloud, but still making it available to any cloud service through a high-resiliency private network that bypasses the public Internet.
