Storing and retrieving large amounts of data in New Zealand just got a lot cheaper with the launch of Catalyst Cloud’s
new low-cost Object Storage service. It’s just one of the initiatives launched by the local cloud computing innovator to
improve access to cloud computing in NZ.
At a cost of only $0.03 per GB per month, the new single region object storage option still stores three copies of
client data, but delivers a significant cost saving compared with both Catalyst Cloud’s own multi-region object storage
and competitor offerings. Catalyst Cloud also has a transparent, ‘only pay for what you use’ pricing strategy, with no
hidden costs, giving more budget certainty. Term and volume discounts
drive costs down even further.

All client data stored by Catalyst Cloud is kept securely in Aotearoa, protected by New Zealand law and data privacy
regulations, in data-centres
powered by renewable energy generating companies.
“Our new low-cost object storage option gives New Zealand businesses a much cheaper way to store their data safely in
New Zealand. In many cases it will eliminate price as the reason to take their data offshore. If geo-replication isn’t
as important to companies, but they want a cost efficient and safe way to store and retrieve data within New Zealand,
then our single-region object storage service could be perfect,” says Catalyst Cloud’s Chief Growth Officer, Igor
New Zealand based organisations, including Vodafone, PaySauce and Dragonfly Data Science, already rely on Catalyst
Cloud’s Object Storage service to serve data to their customers.
is the ideal service to store any amount of data for web apps, mobile apps, websites, IoT sensors, backups and much
more. With Catalyst Cloud’s geo-replicated object storage
service, objects are automatically replicated to preserve three copies of the data, one in each region of the Catalyst Cloud
. With their new single-region object storage service, data is stored in only one of Catalyst Cloud’s NZ based regions,
with three replicas of the data preserved in the chosen region.

As New Zealand's local innovator in true cloud computing, we are making the cloud more accessible to accelerate the growth of our digital economy in Aotearoa.
We make it easy to get started with pay as you go, curated services, standardized APIs, and simple dashboards. And then
it's just as easy to scale as you need.
We were the first in New Zealand to offer a CNCF certified Kubernetes service. And, we were the first to offer the five
essential characteristics of cloud computing according to NIST.
We've just scratched the surface of what's possible in the cloud, and we want to do so much more.
