Fast storage

This is the fastest storage available. Fundaments uses VMware vSAN and NetApp AFF8040 systems for this purpose. Both solutions meet the highest requirements required from this premium storage. With VMware vSAN, SSD and NVMe technology is also used. This means that data that has to be cached can be quickly accessed.

Does your service require a very low latency and is the workload very intensive? Then Fast Storage from Fundaments is a good option for you.

Regular storage

You use Regular Storage for your normal workload. This storage is based on iSCSI SAN technology with fast SAS disks. This gives you a fast and reliable storage that perfectly fits the vast majority of workloads. When the emphasis of the workload is on a lot of writing actions, this type of storage is a good match.

Basic storage

Not everyone needs top speed when it comes to storing data. A basic storage speed often suffices. Basic Storage at Fundaments is always High Available (SAN) storage, which is used for larger amounts of files with a lower speed requirement (SATA). For example file servers within office environments. A basic speed, for a basic price.

Archive storage

Some data you rarely or never need to access directly. Or sometimes storage speed isn’t important. We have Archive Storage for this type of data storage. Because of the good performance on writing data, this type of storage is also used for making backups. Due to the low performance profile, this type of cloud storage is also the most attractively priced.

The best choice?!

The type of cloud storage that is most suitable for you depends on your service and how you approach your data. That’s why we are happy to advise you on which cloud storage is best suited to your organisation. This advice is included with Fundaments!

A leap forward
“By using Fundaments’ platform and expertise we have made a leap forward as a company in professionalising our part of the chain.’’
Jeroen Mahler
Managing Director of CoBrowser

Jeroen Mahler
Managing Director of CoBrowser
Modern smart firewall
"We were looking for a solution that would help defend us against every possible vector attack. We really needed a modern, smart firewall and with the Fundaments Next Generation Redundant Firewall offer, based on Fortinet technology, we have got exactly what we wanted. It was a logical choice for us.”

Engineer at Kempen Automatisering
Trusting a partner
"Sometimes specific knowledge is imperative and it isn’t always profitable to acquire this in-house. It’s great to be able to trust a partner who takes that worry away, who’s familiar with the subject and doesn’t immediately send an invoice for every little thing. This partner will have an ongoing conversation with you: what is it you need, how can we tackle this and find a solution? That’s what Fundaments does."
Richard Hagen of the Rolf group
Multiple physical locations
"If the customer wants to have their data stored in several physical locations in view of DR, this is possible. But whether it’s a customised option or well-planned standard options, the customer doesn’t have to worry about a thing. That’s the beauty of the new ways of BU and DR"
Michel Erkens and Alexander van Bruchem of Onguard
Good solution with less costs
“When you look at the connectivity costs, meaning the private connections, as a part of migrating to the cloud, where you no longer need your own hardware or maintenance, your insurance policy is reduced, the company’s energy expenditure goes down and other expenses become smaller, you will see that this is really a good solution.”
Jeroen Bruggeman
Enterprise Administrator at CNS-IT
Security is no.1
At Cobrowser they’ve noticed a huge difference in how companies deal with security. “There are companies who consider this not so important. It’s essential to us to find a partner who takes security seriously. That’s why we’ve chosen Fundaments. Security is a very natural element of our collaboration.”
Frank Leegstra
Director and security officer of CoBrowser
Time saving and significantly reduced down time
“We can now reduce the actual down time with a migration to minutes instead of hours. This means many advantages for our customers and that’s the most important thing. In addition, it saves time for our engineers.”
