Unlock the power of Cloud Storage!

Meet HubStor, the flexible, low-cost storage and search SaaS suite designed to leverage the Microsoft Azure platform to meet your business and compliance needs,

With HubStor, businesses can achieve up to 87% storage costs reductions.

Cloud Essentials are proud to be the preferred HubStor’s preferred European  Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) partner!

How HubStor works.

Using an on-premises gateway you can seamlessly migrate data from your on-premises storage, automatically determining which Azure tier is used based on policies you define.

Once in the cloud, HubStor’s policy and analytics engine lets you continue to migrate storage between tiers over the lifetime of your data.

You also benefit from near real-time insights about your data, along with search and data management features to facilitate retention and deletion policies, perform eDiscovery, implement legal holds and prevent data leaks.

A chargeback capability means you can apportion costs to different parts of the organisation based on their cloud storage consumption, or simply understand how storage resources in the cloud are being consumed.

What makes HubStor different.

Unlike other cloud gateway solutions, you don’t need to move all your file shares to an appliance that manages data movement.

You simply use your existing file servers and NAS solutions and address the data in-place, with HubStor’s Windows-based client syncing the data along with the associated access rights and folder structures into Azure.

There’s no set up fee and you only pay for what you use month-to-month, based on the metered Azure costs of your tenant.

Importantly, HubStor is unique in that it does not lock your data in, neither technically or contractually. You can cancel at any time, and you always have control to export your data.
