This is a good storage box and I would recommend it. It depends on how it matches with your IT infrastructure and the other components. I would rate this solution a nine out of 10.

Look at StorageGRID product because it hits that sweet spot of what you are trying to do as a service provider from an S3 perspective. There are a couple of opportunities that we're looking at for IoT analytics or machine learning in the near future.

I would highly recommend this solution for video storage because of all the benefits it has given us. It gives us all the storage that we need while the performance is there. We have no bottlenecks and the price is attractive. I went to a session here where we could start doing automation with Perl scripting. It just hasn't been implemented yet. Now that we know that it is available, we might start doing that.

Make sure you explore all solutions and use cases for StorageGRID. If you are using it for backup, ensure you understand both the backup and the restore site. At the time of implementation, we used AltaVault. However, we never talked about restoring the data on the DR site. Apparently, if you want to restore data, you need to open the S3 bucket but you also have to use the same AltaVault appliance to restore the data.
