Overview

Faction Cloud Control Volumes were the FIRST cloud-attached storage solution that integrates natively with VMware Cloud on AWS. The service is directly connected to VMware Cloud on AWS via proprietary, patented network connectivity with less than 3-millisecond latency.

Build VMware-based environments that can integrate with native AWS IaaS and PaaS tools; from database services to security to content distribution, you have over 100 services that can help rapidly build and scale composite applications. Customers can also leverage this service for cloud-based, cost-effective disaster-recovery-as-a-service for VMware-based workloads.

Benefits

  • Scale up without adding complexity

    Enjoy cloud-attached storage that scales as your applications require, without the need to add costly compute nodes.

  • Flexible performance tiering

    Storage performance tiers allow you to optimize your storage design, matching access frequency and throughput capabilities to your specific workloads, while reducing costs to store less frequently accessed data.

  • Decrease risk with durable and persistent storage

    Faction storage is persistent, unlike many of your other options. Most public clouds leverage hyper-converged infrastructure, so if a software-defined data center is shut down, all data is lost as the node is deleted. You can avoid that scenario with Faction cloud storage.

  • Increased speed to market with rapid cloud migration

    When you use CCVs with VMware Cloud on AWS, you can leverage existing skills and tools on familiar VMware technology and replicate directly from your on-premise storage arrays to Faction storage.

Use Cases

  • Big Data

    As your data grows it becomes more valuable to your business. Public clouds offer AI and machine learning capabilities to process, manipulate, and analyze your data to create competitive advantages.

  • Multi-Cloud Storage

    Avoid vendor lock-in, support high-availability architectures, and leverage different clouds that best meet business use cases.

  • Multi-Cloud Resilience

    Plan and provide your business with more options to restore operations in the event one cloud provider experiences an outage.

  • Data Center Extension

    Add compute power and capacity. Comply with data sovereignty requirements. Reduce costs by vacating an existing data center.

Take control of your cloud data.
