CloudSigma, a provider of cloud Infrastructure as a Service, announced today a partnership with Zadara Storage. The new partnership bolsters CloudSigma’s cloud storage offerings, by making Zadara’s private storage solution available to CloudSigma customers.
The new offering was designed to help businesses meet their high-volume storage requirements. Zadara Storage provides private cloud storage for enterprises. Its Virtual Private Storage Array will be offered with CloudSigma’s existing high performance, all-SSD compute offering. The combined offering will be available through the Equinix Data Center.
The offering will also be available to Equinix’s customers via direct connect through the Ashburn data center campus, one of the largest Internet exchange points in the world.
Through the partnership, CloudSigma’s customers get access to Zadara’s services, including its private block and file services for network storage, at hourly rates. In collaboration with CloudSigma and Equinix, Zadara has also added flexibly deployed hardware to Equinix’s data center colocation facilities, with high-speed network connections into CloudSigma. This ensures that even with large data volumes, businesses will be provided with superior storage performance in the cloud.
“We have always been committed to providing superior storage performance in the cloud, and our partnership with Zadara is another step toward that goal,” said Robert Jenkins, CEO of CloudSigma. “Zadara’s large-volume, sharable, elastic, by-the hour, enterprise storage solution helps us satisfy an even more diverse set of storage needs for our customers; and, together, we are helping advance the public cloud market by enabling enterprise grade tiered storage strategies in the cloud.”
For Zadara, the partnership is a step toward making Zadara a ubiquitous cloud storage platform: “CloudSigma’s reputation for quality, innovation and customer service is unmatched in the industry and we are proud to be teaming up with them on this advanced public cloud storage partnership,” said Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage. “Our combined offering demonstrates our ability to serve and meet the needs of a wide variety of cloud customers and we expect this will be a significant step toward making Zadara a ubiquitous platform for cloud storage.”
Zadara’s VPSA service is available immediately for CloudSigma’s Zurich cloud customers with the additional U.S. locations coming on stream soon.
