Rethink Storage

As a systems integrator, we’ve watched our customers buy into and then sober up to the myth of the cloud. Typical cloud workflows force teams to manage their production assets in two places - local and cloud storage. With creative.space, these two places become one through our enterprise storage at your facility that can be accessed remotely at any time. We call it "Fog".

Advantages of Fog Storage:

  • Secure 1/10/25/40/100GB connections from your workstations to your storage
  • Intuitive software with built-in features and tools designed for creatives
  • All-inclusive proactive monitoring and support
  • Fixed monthly or annual payments with no hidden fees or variable ingress/egress costs

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

After years selling and supporting storage from other vendors, we created O.P.M.S. as a new business model to better meet the needs of customers.

What am I actually agreeing to?

Once we determine the right solution for you, from the actual storage to additional equipment like switches or networking cards, we send you a contract based of a one, two, or three year commitment. The longer the commitment, the lower the monthly rate.

What happens when my commitment period ends?

You keep paying your monthly rate and continue using your system. If you want to end your contract, just give us at least forty-five days notice and we will send someone to pick up the system.

What if I need to end my contract early?

We’ve thought about this and we know that it can be hard to know if you will have enough work years in advance to cover your expenses. This is why we give our customers the ability to just pay the difference in cost and convert their commitment as long as they give us forty-five days notice before the next year.

For example, if you signed up for a three year deal and you can’t afford to continue almost a year into your contract, just let us know forty-five days before the second year starts and just pay the difference for what it would cost if you had initially signed up for a one year deal.

Do I own the storage?

No, you are paying a service rate for hardware, software, and support. If you owned the storage, you would have to claim it on your taxes as a capital expenditure. Instead, you can claim it as an operational expense and have it deducted from your taxes.

Storage does not retain long term value. Like a car, it depreciates the second you start using it. If you purchase and manage storage yourself, you will need to prepare to purchase a new system every few years and migrate your data. With creative.space's managed service, we handle this all for you. You get the system you need at a fixed rate and we handle replacements and work with you to coordinate migration of data. Basically, we take on the burdens of acquiring and managing storage so you can focus on more important things.

Do I have to cover the storage under my insurance?

Yes, since the storage will be at your facility, it must be covered under your insurance.

How do I upgrade or expand my storage?

Whenever you need to add to or upgrade your storage, we will work with you to negotiate an amendment to your contract. The result will be an increase in your monthly payments and possibly a new commitment duration.
