Word stemming from a Common Germanic *Þunraz (meaning "thunder").
Punraz is a combination of HaaS (Hardware As A Service) and SaaS (Software As A Service) solution aimed at medium and large enterprise to provide high volume storage at a fraction of the cost of traditional SANs. The objective was never to replace SANs, and will never be, but to offload data that do not require being there.
Our own research has showed that 30 to 40 percent of the data that resides on enterprise SANs should not be there. These technologies provide high-speed access storage that should be use for data that is read and written often. Offloading static or stale data out of the SAN infrastructure could avoid, or at least delay, costly upgrades to your SAN infrastructures.
The cloud storage solution provided by Punraz becomes a complement to SAN in a customer infrastructure. As opposed to existing offering for other cloud storage solutions on the market, Punraz sits in the customer infrastructure, not out there on the Internet. No more worries for security, your data is safe and secure in your own infrastructures.
Peace of mind
Punraz is only offered as a HaaS (Hardware as a Service) and SaaS (Software as a Service) solution. All the customer has to provide is power and Ethernet connection(s). The hardware and software provided to deliver the cloud services is remotely monitored and managed by our team. No hardware maintenance, no software maintenance. Everything is provided.
