Data-centric transformation with Storage as a Service
Fujitsu uSCALE for data management
What is Storage as a Service?
Storage as a Service (STaaS) is based on IaaS and is a business model for data storage. In this, a provider makes storage space or resources available to its customers and ensures reliability, security and service.
This storage space can be used as a fast all-flash or hybrid storage system, for archiving data or for backups and data backups.
Storage as a service is usually a cloud model, meaning that users save their data in a public or private cloud. The storage space is usually billed based on usage and can be expanded at any time.
With Fujitsu uSCALE, the advantages of a cloud environment can now also be used in local data centres. In this way, the data security of an on-premise structure is combined with the flexibility of the cloud.
We know many As-a-Service models from our everyday life.
An example of this is streaming services and other media libraries.
According to a recent survey, almost 30% of those surveyed watch films or series via a streaming platform at least once a week. However, they probably only watch the videos once, so it is more efficient to use a rental or subscription model than to buy the DVD.
With IT infrastructure too, it can take a long time before the one-time acquisition costs pay off compared to an as-a-service model. Such a model also offers many other advantages.

Primary uses of Storage as a Service
Online backups are a form of data protection by StaaS, regularly backing up your data to an external location. This is useful if your local computer becomes corrupted or fails and data recovery becomes necessary. With Storage as a Service, you are safe from data failures and losses.
With data archiving using StaaS, the data is transferred from the original storage medium to another medium. With uSCALE, the data is then located on your on-premise server and is no longer actively used, but only accessed when needed.
Filing and provision of documents
StaaS enables documents to be stored securely and accessed from any location. Accessing the documents is very easy. Just log in via your web browser or a special interface and gain immediate access to the documents.
Data synchronisation across multiple devices
With StaaS, you can compare and synchronise data between different devices. The data is updated in real time. This service is often used by companies to ensure the compatibility of data and to ensure a uniform working environment for all employees.
