Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Hybrid cloud storage systems for small business?

CoolCash writes: I have been in the market looking for a hybrid "cloud" storage system. We are a small agency with about 15+ TB of archived data which we want to move off site. I would like this data easily accessible to most, if not all, of our users without asking IT (me) to retrieve it for them. One intriguing product is Amazon Storage Gateway using s3 and glacier. Which opens up an iSCSI lun to the network from s3 storage. There are systems like Microsoft's StorSimple cost upwards of $100,000. Has anyone had experience in this product space?

No you don't pay for Binge On, but I bet that T-Mobile gets a kickback from HBO, Netflix, Hulu for those better speeds. And this is exactly what a violation of net neutrality is. Now the "little guy" who wants to have a streaming service gets kicked to the bottom rung because they didn't pay for premium delivery by T-Mobile.

-The new Zimbra 8 integrates with cisco phones and now syncs accounts with active directory. -Forums are outstanding. I usually find my answer there. I have had to only contact support a couple times a year. -They have an opensource "free" version. Doesn't include mobile sync, backup services or Outlook sync support. But a lot of that can be done with 3rd part sync applications which have been extensively tested and used by the community.
