Primary Storage - Network Attached Storage (NAS)

Provide additional, convenient off-site storage for your organisation

Vodafone Primary Storage is a form of network attached storage (NAS) that delivers a simple, convenient and cost-effective way to provide additional storage for a range of applications across your organisation, from simple file-based storage to a secure, remote repository for critical backup files. Built-in RAID protection provides a first line of defence against data loss by storing a mirrored copy of your data on a second drive. Other optional add-ons can provide greater redundancy in the form of additional backups to ensure your data is kept safe and accessible at all times.

How it works

NAS storage is hosted within Vodafone’s secure data centres, in industry-leading all-flash storage arrays, which use solid-state drive technology to ensure high performance.

Users can choose between block-based LUN storage or file-based volumes. Block-based storage is accessed through dedicated fibre-optic SAN (storage-area networking) ports to provide both fast data transfer and redundancy against connection issues or network hardware failures within the data centre. File-based volumes are accessed via IP, and are slower, but support common network protocols to ensure compatibility with a wide range of devices.

Additional forms of redundancy are also available in the form of local mirrors, snapshots and clones on a per-LUN basis. Each LUN/volume can be as small as 100GB in size, with additional capacity required from 50GB upwards. Users are charged for the amount of storage used (in GB) based on the level of performance and redundancy required, with an additional charge for the SAN ports (billed in pairs) for those opting for block-based storage. Users are charged for the allocated amount of storage, even if it’s not all used.
