BT Compute Storage


Extend your storage options without compromising on security and reliability

It is estimated that a typical business doubles the amount of data stored every two years (report by IDC 2014 - The Digital Universe of Opportunities). Big data is driving much of the increased demand for intelligent storage. Efficient storage solutions are becoming a critical part of IT infrastructures, and that means having a mix of storage types. We’ve extended our range of storage options by adding enterprise grade, cloud-based object storage – giving you all the benefits of the cloud with enhanced security and durability.

To help you get clear visibility and control over your data we have teamed up with Caringo to launch BT Compute Storage FileFly, it’s our seamless archiving service that will help you to remain compliant without any changes to the way your staff store and retrieve their data.

The details

BT Compute Storage specifications

With BT Compute Storage you can tailor your requirements to match your business aims, whether that’s high availability, low-cost or a combination.

You can extend file storage, data protection and sharing across the enterprise and consolidate remote office storage infrastructure – while your data is hosted in the delivery country of your choice* and entirely under your control.

Using our Compute Management System, which is a single point of control for all our BT Compute services you can also create your specific use scenario, such as flexible long-term back-up or file sync and share services in the cloud.

Object-based storage is a great way to make your data accessible on any device, to support your BYOD strategy. And because we’ve designed it for business, BT Compute Storage has enterprise grade security – removing the risk associated with consumer-focused sharing services.

Secure to the core

  • End-to-end encryption using AES 2048-bit.
  • All data is hashed and validated using SHA-1 fingerprinting to prevent tampering.
  • Privately held encryption keys for our Amazon S3® compatible and BT SCSP Object storage access APIs.
  • Dedicated, isolated data storage areas removes the risk of leakage.
  • Your data is stored in state-of-the-art BT facilities under24/7 surveillance with authorised access only.

*We can offer our object storage services from major business hubs, and we are extending this to all our global BT Cloud Compute delivery locations. The object storage service can be ordered, consumed and controlled from anywhere.

BT Compute Storage FileFly – Archiving made simple

Most companies manage their data storage and retrieval in a similar way. This means mission-critical data that you need access to instantly is kept in the same place as the data you only need occasionally. This is an inefficient way of dealing with it because high cost storage is taken up with back-ups and static web content.

We think there’s a better way to manage data, one that exploits the power of the cloud to deliver data to where it needs to be; enabling people to store, share and sync documents wherever they are, without paying for unused space and unnecessary processing power. This tiered approach means that over time you can move less used and less critical data to better value solution.

To make things easy we have teamed up with Caringo to bring you a transparent archiving service called BT Compute Storage FileFly, that helps you reduce costs and which allows seamless retrieval of the data when needed.
