At Razyr we create storage strategies and services based on two primary technologies.
Exclusively using solid state drives (SSD) for maximum performance and reliability,
block storage is ideal for mounted cloud server volumes, databases and server instance snapshots.
Think of block storage like traditional hard drive partitions – only with extreme fault tolerance
and infinite scalability. Block storage is economical and seamlessly integrated into your
operating system and applications.
Perfect for content delivery of large media or software, static or archival data, virtual machine
images and off-premise encrypted backups of servers, workstations, laptops or even smart phones.
If you are familiar with popular services such as Dropbox service, you are already familiar with
one form of object storage.
Object storage is even more cost effective than block storage. With the right client application,
object storage will feel local to your users and can appear as mounted drives or folders on servers or
desktops. No more awkward FTP or watching thermometer bars while you move files to and from remote
systems. Objects can also be shared with third parties using time limited encrypted URLs which can
be easily distributed by email and accessible through any web browser.
Razyr offers 100% Canadian storage solutions for instances where you have regulatory
requirements or concerns about storing data in the US or on servers or data centres in
Canada owned or managed by US companies or subsidiaries.
Content Delivery Network
For high volume media applications, CDN distribution can be activated for object storage
containers. Your media is cached at multiple points of presence spread across the globe and
traffic is automatically routed to the nearest node. Your effective bandwidth is increased by
over 1,000% and the proximity of your data to global customers means less latency for downloads.
