Solving latency issues for ubiquitous data created by connected devices at the edges of your network requires data centers that are managed as a whole rather than in in silos. CenturyLink Network Storage is a first-of-its-kind solution that places storage in the network, within milliseconds of your data. The closer data centers are to data, the lower the latency and the better the consumer experience.
Because storage is built into the network, storage at the edge can have the power to ingest data, reduce data, take snapshots, make smart decisions about how and where to move data, and send simultaneous copies to multiple locations. CenturyLink Network Storage provides enterprise grade storage wherever businesses need it.
Driven by the need to maintain consistent, predictable performance within an optimal cost structure, CenturyLink Network Storage is flexible: Pay for storage only when it's needed, scale up or down, and try out new expansions while mitigating cost and risk.*

Branch offices, worksites, retail stores and restaurant chains can receive faster and more efficient updates to create a better customer experience because CenturyLink Network Storage brings cloud capabilities of compute and storage to data wherever it is. Faster updates for personalized offers, more efficient analytics because data is reduced at the edge before being sent, and better productivity for sharing the data across sites and across development teams.
Making data easier to integrate and aggregate while getting very low latency in a secure network are critical to a successful data strategy. Collect more data, do more with it, and get a real competitive advantage with a new solution for accessing, storing and processing. Real-time ingest and updates where data is consumed means business processes can be implemented in milliseconds.
Modern app development creates storage issues for managing datasets that may only exist temporarily. Rapid repeated cycling and testing requires fast provisioning, movement and release of storage. CenturyLink Network Storage eases the pain by allowing distribution of data to multiple locations faster and more efficiently from the Network Storage node.
Businesses need to consider mitigation from security threats such as ransomware, as well as consistent recovery options from natural disasters and outages. Flexible point-in-time snapshots and replication options improve your disaster recovery strategy and provide additional protection. Rewind to previous versions, or switch and sync to other versions.
Application development creates new storage issues that require new storage solutions. Managing datasets that may exist only temporarily, and rapid, repeated cycling and testing require fast provisioning, movement and release of storage on demand.
Having more data isn't the only challenge when considering storage solutions. There's also how this growing volume of data is created and consumed - at the edge, often by machines, and in larger datasets for content like online videos, healthcare machines, and game applications.
Data transmissions from connected vehicles will put an increasing strain on network infrastructure without new computing and storage solutions. By 2023, 90 percent of all vehicles shipped in the U.S. and 70 percent worldwide will be shipped with factory-installed or "embedded" connectivity.
