Excellent storage capabilities, great cost savings, and very efficient

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for cold storage.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is great for storing data you don't usually need access to. It's also well-integrated with Amazon S3."

    What other advice do I have?

    We are using the cloud deployment model. Everything is always on the cloud. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. It's a really good solution that could use a few small improvements, but for us, it works very well.
