ArkHub Storage Solves ‘Bill Shock’

​MediaHub Australia has launched a low cost archive storage solution called ArkHub.

MediaHub CEO Alan Sweeney explained, “ArkHub is a total gamechanger that completely eradicates the single biggest complaint in the storage and archive world – bill shock. It has been specifically developed as a low-cost storage service that provides secure, durable and flexible storage for data backup-archive, with a considerably simplified pricing model.

"ArkHub pricing allows clients to store their data for only a monthly storage cost, with no further ingress or egress charges, no early deletion or embargo fees and no region fees. Clients can also upload a single file or perform a bulk upload with no price difference as ArkHub is simply a fixed price per gigabyte per month fee."

Using ArkHub WebConnect, clients can transfer files from one location to another from anywhere in the world. Based on CatonNET’s Cydex software this makes for the “fastest possible throughput with an intuitive user interface”. Integration with HPE’s industry leading object-based S3 storage was done through MediaHub’s solution provider, RedFig Group.

Sweeney said, “For some time now MediaHub has received requests from our clients for an archive solution where they are able to re-use their content without the unintended, unbudgeted and often substantial egress and ingress costs typically associated with deep archive solutions. In short, they wanted to avoid bill shock. In addition to this enterprise-level clients do not want to invest in their own private island, small scale backup systems and are seeking to outsource these capabilities. They are also looking to a partner to provide a secure service for a second or third backup storage system to mitigate any issue with a single supplier for backup. ArkHub easily, simply and cost-effectively meets all their requirements, has no possibility of bill shock and thus is the solution they and the rest of the market have been requesting.”

MediaHub Head of Technology, Simon Scott added, “ArkHub is a highly cost effective and complete self-healing archive storage solution which has multi-exabyte scalability, is optimised for enterprise cloud environments and is 'always-on' with a 100% availability SLA and 14x9 durability SLA. We wanted ArkHub to be truly flexible and agile, which is why it is designed to be compatible with over 100 Independent Software Vendors (ISV) and over 50 backup and archive products in the market, including Veeam, Commvault, Veritas, Net Back Up, Cohesity and Ruberik.”
