By Anshu Shrivastava, TMCnet Contributor


Provider of hosting and Web application Hostway has said that it is currently offering 30 days of Smart Cloud Storage for free.
 
Smart Cloud Storage provides a simple storage service that offers organizations a scalable data storage infrastructure. A user can store and share unlimited files with this solution. Through GUI client and an extensible API, data in the Smart Cloud Storage can be accessed from anywhere on the Web.
 
Cloud Storage solutions are considered ideal for a variety of storage needs such as digital content distribution and serving; backup and archival storage; file archiving; video surveillance; and streaming media. Shared application access, file collaboration and content distribution are also ideal uses for cloud storage, according to company officials.
 
The characteristics such as rapid scalability support, sold as pay-per-use, and persistent storage, make Smart Cloud Storage appealing to users.
 
Users of Smart Cloud Storage receive advanced data protection during transmission and while stored as well as they receive built-in data mirroring on redundant centralized storage arrays.
 
Additionally, users can take advantage of simplified management and flexible access methods, said company officials. Plus, they can use as much capacity as they need and when they need it. The users have to only pay for what they use. Company officials said that there is no long-term commitment, and no upfront capital costs.
 
Also, if users have a server hosted at Hostway (News - Alert), they can receive direct access to the Smart Cloud infrastructure via the company’s private network.
 
Unlike other pricing algorithms, Hostway’s cost model makes it easy for the users to predict their monthly storage costs and there are no hidden fees, said company officials. In addition to offering 30 days of Smart Cloud Storage for free, Hostway is also offering 10GB of Smart Cloud Storage for free with all of its cloud servers.
