Catalyst Cloud Launches New Low-cost Data Storage Option

Storing and retrieving large amounts of data in New Zealand just got a lot cheaper with the launch of Catalyst Cloud’s new low-cost Object Storage service. It’s just one of the initiatives launched by the local cloud computing innovator to improve access to cloud computing in NZ.

At a cost of only $0.03 per GB per month, the new single region object storage option still stores three copies of client data, but delivers a significant cost saving compared with both Catalyst Cloud’s own multi-region object storage and competitor offerings. Catalyst Cloud also has a transparent, ‘only pay for what you use’ pricing strategy, with no hidden costs, giving more budget certainty. Term and volume discounts drive costs down even further.

Catalyst Cloud Chief Growth Officer, Igor Portugal

All client data stored by Catalyst Cloud is kept securely in Aotearoa, protected by New Zealand law and data privacy regulations, in data-centres powered by renewable energy generating companies.

“Our new low-cost object storage option gives New Zealand businesses a much cheaper way to store their data safely in New Zealand. In many cases it will eliminate price as the reason to take their data offshore. If geo-replication isn’t as important to companies, but they want a cost efficient and safe way to store and retrieve data within New Zealand, then our single-region object storage service could be perfect,” says Catalyst Cloud’s Chief Growth Officer, Igor Portugal.

New Zealand based organisations, including Vodafone, PaySauce and Dragonfly Data Science, already rely on Catalyst Cloud’s Object Storage service to serve data to their customers.

Object Storage is the ideal service to store any amount of data for web apps, mobile apps, websites, IoT sensors, backups and much more. With Catalyst Cloud’s geo-replicated object storage service, objects are automatically replicated to preserve three copies of the data, one in each region of the Catalyst Cloud. With their new single-region object storage service, data is stored in only one of Catalyst Cloud’s NZ based regions, with three replicas of the data preserved in the chosen region.
