Keystone Flex Subscription

Keystone Flex Subscription is a flexible pay-as-you-grow subscription-based service that brings a cloud-like experience on your premises, with an outcome-based service option if you prefer opex to capex or leasing. It gives you the ability to accelerate time to value by removing the IT burden of managing resources and going through the lengthy procurement cycle. You can better align economics to your business priorities.

Flex Subscription is perfect for customers who:

Prefer 100% opex, with no assets on your balance sheet.

Want to act as an internal or external service provider and better align costs to usage.

Have variable capacity growth.

Want to reduce time spent on migrations, tech refreshes, upgrades, and other storage admin tasks.

Need solutions for migrating workloads to the cloud, or from the cloud to on the premises.

MANAGE YOUR DATA ON YOUR TERMS.
