Faction is a leading multi-cloud data services provider. Faction pioneered cloud-adjacent data services powered by patented technology that provides data access over low latency, high throughput connections to all the major clouds, including AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Faction’s private and multi-cloud platforms allow clients to break down data silos via a centralized data fabric that provides a single copy of data accessible by multiple clouds simultaneously. Faction’s services enable customers of all sizes and verticals to access, scale and protect data between clouds without the fear of cloud lock-in. Faction is also a leading service provider for VMware Cloud on AWS and was the first to offer cloud-adjacent storage solutions that integrate natively with VMware Cloud on AWS.
