Cloud Control Volumes™:

Our NEW Cloud Control Volumes™, or CCV™, deliver AWS adjacent storage options, over a Managed Direct Connect to VMware Cloud on AWS customers. Providing additional storage capacity, performance, and price tiers that can be integrated directly into your SDDC. This can be mounted either by the guest operating system or as a datastore for your virtual machine workloads to consume. Backed by both Dell EMC and NetApp storage, our Cloud Control Volumes™ can also support native storage replication from your on-premises environment.

If you are running out of storage capacity, or if the storage to memory ratio would require you to buy additional hosts just to increase storage, then Cloud Control Volumes™ can help. Everything is included in CCV™: storage capacity, 24x7 support, and connectivity to your SDDC.

Managed Direct Connect:

Our cloud nodes are located inside the same facilities that house the AWS Direct Connect Infrastructure, providing low cost and low latency Direct Connect options.

Managed Cloud Connected Colocation:

Whether its a single 1U device or a cage of colocation, Faction can help deliver a hybrid architecture with our Cloud-Connected Colocation.
