Slash Storage Costs

Data volumes keep rising, the cost to store it all shouldn’t.

The Challenge

Drowning in a sea of API calls

Managing and storing vast amounts of data can be a real drain on resources. Organizations often need to retain data for extended periods — sometimes up to seven years — to comply with regulations. It’s a common dilemma: data volumes keep skyrocketing, but budgets remain tight . IT and security teams face immense pressure to handle this data deluge while avoiding procurement issues.
