Continental Resources (ConRes) offers a full line of data storage solutions to address your uptime, cost and compliance objectives–from ultra highly available/high performance enterprise solutions to low cost modular solutions.
Every solution is designed and architected to provide the performance and scalability necessary to meet your current and future needs.
Each engagement explores your current environment and requirements. We then make recommendations based upon your budget, desires and data storage requirements.
Being vendor agnostic, ConRes recommends the optimum solution without binding you to a specific manufacturer’s product stack.

The refined requirements will be used to map to one or more solutions and may be based on one or more manufacturer’s product lines.
