Cloud storage has become a critical part of business IT systems.
The cloud offers major benefits that empower businesses to improve their systems and streamline their processes.
However, business-focused cloud solutions can be expensive and complicated – which often results in companies choosing to keep their outdated, legacy solutions instead.
This is why BigStorage offers Amazon S3-compatible storage aimed at small and medium-sized businesses and IT service providers who are looking for an affordable, effective, and versatile cloud storage solution.
The benefits of Amazon S3
BigStorage leverages Amazon S3 storage, which offers major benefits to businesses when compared to other cloud storage products.
Amazon S3 offers industry-leading scalability, data availability, security, and performance – making it perfect for businesses of all sizes and industries.
It can also be used across a variety of use cases – including for storing backups, storing real-time objects for servers and similar platforms, and for traditional file storage and sharing.
Amazon S3 also offers businesses an extensive range of easy-to-use management features to let these organisations organise their data and configure their access controls to their specific needs.
This enables your business to deliver compliance and operational efficiencies.

Another major benefit of BigStorage is that your data will be hosted in South Africa, which improves latency and results in a more streamlined storage system.

This ensures that businesses don’t pay for storage space that they do not use.
BigStorage also offers free egress of up to 100% of the storage utilised by the business’s account, and only charges 20c per additional GB transferred out.
In addition, the first 25GB of data storage is free.

Simply adjust the sliders on the tool to state how much storage and egress you will need, and it automatically determines a monthly price based on this information.
