SAN and NAS in the Cloud Solutions
Zadara Storage’s SAN and NAS in the Cloud solutions, powered by our exclusive Virtual Private Storage Array (VPSA) technology, work like the enterprise storage solutions now powering enterprise, small and medium business, and service provider data centers worldwide. They deliver iSCSI block (SAN) and CIFS/NFS file (NAS) storage simultaneously so each database and application gains access to the ideal type of storage resulting in optimum reliability, availability, serviceability, and performance. This sets the Zadara Storage solution apart from other cloud storage alternatives requiring the use of proprietary APIs or object-based architectures to store and retrieve data.
With SAN and NAS in the Cloud, enterprise databases and applications access data using standard iSCSI (block) and CIFS/NFS (file) protocols over Ethernet networks for optimum interoperability and superior connectivity. The use of open protocols and common networks provides the flexibility to support modern IT architectures including public, private, and hybrid Cloud in addition to dedicated colocation and service provider environments.
Some business needs require strategic solutions. Examples include disaster recovery, business continuity, or high availability. Successfully implementing a solution driven by a particular need frequently involves overcoming architectural, connectivity, and interoperability challenges. Fortunately, VPSA works like traditional SAN and NAS in the Cloud to facilitate the integration of the Cloud with complex business solutions.
VPSA supports popular business databases and applications including those from Adobe Systems, BMC Software, CA Technologies, Citrix, HP, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, Red Hat, Symantec, SAP, and VMware. This enables organizations of all sizes to migrate the IT infrastructure supporting their virtualization, databases, applications, email, collaboration, Internet, and more to the Cloud.
Zadara Storage’s SAN and NAS in the Cloud solutions for government, enterprise organizations, small and medium businesses, and startups migrate business databases and applications from data centers to the Cloud. Public and private organizations from any industry gain broader access to the agility and economics of the Cloud with VPSA and this improves the total cost of ownership of their information technology (IT) infrastructure.
SAN and NAS in the Cloud solutions are available from some of the world’s leading cloud and infrastructure providers. If you are already using cloud services from these select partners, you can conveniently use VPSA to migrate more business databases and applications to the cloud. Or, you can complement ordinary file and object storage with VPSA high performance iSCSI and CIFS/NFS cloud storage hosted by your current service providers.
