Anonymous UserSolutions Architect at a computer software company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I have seen ROI. It has allowed me to increase the density of my VMs without having to purchase anything additional."
"Our licensing is renewed annually."
"Support is a separate line item. Support is a different cost, but whatever your support is now, that's what you're going to pay forever. If your support's $100 today, six years from now it's $100. It doesn't fluctuate unless you upgrade it, or change it, etc."
"The price is a little high."
"In my opinion, we have paid the right price for the product. I don't think that it is too much or too little."
"The price of this solution could be made more affordable."

Why use StackPath Object Storage?
Frequent (hot) storage shouldn’t cost a lot. And once you’re paying for storage, we don’t believe you should pay AGAIN to access it. Welcome to StackPath’s Object Storage.
50% cheaper than Amazon S3 or similar cloud storage providers.
No Data Transfer Fees
No charges for data transfer (egress) or API requests/calls.
Better performance than cloud storage providers, even more so once paired with StackPath’s CDN or Edge Computing.
StackPath’s system architecture enables an average 6x faster performance relative to Cloud Storage Providers*. Especially when paired with our CDN or Edge Compute, this performance advantage means significantly faster time-to-first-byte speeds.
100% AWS S3 bit-compatible (same AWS API constructs for storage & identity management). No need to change your S3-compatible application.
Average time-to-first-byte (TTFB) performance of less than 15 ms; made even faster when paired with our CDN. This is significantly lower than others’ TTFB.
Immediate Read Capability
When you write an object to our buckets, it can be read immediately after. This is not always the case with Amazon S3 — a well-known issue for AWS developers.
