Attention: All CDT Customers

Action Requested: None – Information Only

Effective Date: September 7, 2023


As a follow-up to TA 23-01: On-Premises Storage as a Service (STaaS) Updates, the California Department of Technology (CDT) will assume management and ownership of the STaaS On-Premises service as of September 7, 2023.

    • Cost will remain unchanged at the existing published rates
    • Pay per use
    • Data encrypted at rest, within CDT Data Centers
    • Multiple storage tiers
    • Built-in High Availability (HA) at CDT Data Centers
