ESG Economic Value Validation

IT analyst and validation firm ESG evaluated the overall costs of archive storage solutions, comparing the leading public cloud storage options with iTernity’s on-premises platform iCAS FS. The results may surprise IT leaders and challenge commonly accepted assumptions on cloud storage.
