Zadara Storage Updates Enterprise Storage As a Service (STaaS) Prices; Dedicated Drives Reduced by Up To 51%; Enterprise Suite now Complimentary
IRVINE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Storage, Inc., provider of
enterprise-class cloud storage as a service (STaaS) solutions, announced
lower pricing for its flagship Virtual Private Storage Array (VPSA)
offering that is available worldwide in ten locations across seven
countries on 4 continents, at Amazon Web Services, Dimension Data,
Equinix, CloudSigma, VIVAVO, KVH, CoreSite (News - Alert), SerenITaaS, and more partner
data centers. Effective today, the per-drive pricing in Zadara's VPSA
offering was reduced by as much as 51%, depending on drive type. Zadara
also announced that its award-winning Enterprise Suite of high-end
features is now included with each VPSA at no additional cost.
At a time of increasing hardware performance with decreasing costs,
Zadara's enterprise storage continues to provide IT managers with
heightened value and access to what remains the industry's only
capabilities for many critical features for enterprise applications to
migrate off premises and into cloud deployments, whether public, hybrid
or private. Concomitant price decreases will be delivered across the
board in all geographies. Hallmark Zadara capabilities for such
enterprise requirements as clustering, global asynchronous replication,
and NFS and CIFS file sharing, are till a part of the VPSA service -
and a major reason why so many accounts to date have moved
mission-critical storage applications to Zadara's enterprise Storage as
a Service (STaaS) offering.
"This is not a belated April Fool's prank. Our dramatic expansion of
Tier 1 partnerships along with hardware cost decreases gives us even
better operational efficiency, and we are passing along the savings to
our customers," said Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage. "After
concluding our third consecutive quarter of doubling revenues and
accelerating growth, Zadara is equipped to act upon our commitment to
offer the most exceptional customer value in an enterprise cloud storage
solution. We're making it even more of a no-brainer for accounts to move
their business applications, with high QoS and scalability, to our
proven pay-as-you-go OpEx-only enterprise storage as a service offering."
Zadara's Virtual Private Storage Array is colocated at partners'
facilities and connected to compute resources via high speed fiber
lines. Drives are private and not shared so Zadara users can obtain
single-tenant performance at multitenant prices and avoid the "noisy
neighbor" problem (which occurs in competing services when other
customers degrade storage performance). Expansion to more drives, or
switching from disks to SSDs, is as simple as clicking a button on the
dedicated online management interface provided to each customer. At any
time Zadara users can also eliminate drives, adjust controller
performance, and fine tune other storage needs on the fly - allowing
agility and control in a flexible, pay-as-you-go model.
