Zadara™ Storage, Inc., provider of enterprise-class private cloud storage by the hour, continues to expand its presence around the world and today announced that its acclaimed Virtual Private Storage Array™ (VPSA™) storage as a service (STaaS) is now available in Singapore thanks to Zadara’s new relationship with VIVAVO, a leading Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider which owns dedicated cloud infrastructures in Singapore, Hong Kong and other major cities in China, Malaysia, and Thailand.
Through the relationship, VIVAVO now will offer its customers the ability to buy Zadara’s private block and file Storage Area Network (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) services at hourly rates for either (for applications) or secondary (for repository) storage, without long-term leases or commitments, and with the flexibility and affordability of the cloud. For the first time, VIVAVO users can now access enterprise-class storage features including clustering, NFS and CIFS support, and high Quality of Service (QoS) levels as demanded by databases and other high IOPS and throughput applications. For existing Zadara customers in other regions of the world, the addition of VIVAVO means that Singapore becomes an available replication location if needed. No matter where they are in the world, customers are a reasonable replication distance from a Zadara data center – so that at the push of a button one can automatically replicate to many other places on the planet.
Additional VIVAVO locations offering Zadara’s Storage as a Service will be announced separately in the coming weeks.
“We believe Zadara will significantly enhance our service offerings and further differentiate ourselves as the regional DR and storage cloud’s leading provider,” said Francis Au, CEO of VIVAVO. “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.”
Zadara’s technology works by providing a complete, turnkey storage service that customers assemble like building blocks – choosing the drives and controllers they need, and provisioning them online in minutes them from a dedicated administration console. Zadara delivers its storage by placing dedicated, flexibly deployed hardware on premises at VIVAVO’s data centers adjacent to VIVAVO’s compute resources, so cloud-delivered performance remains exceptional, even for massive data volumes. VIVAVO customers receive one unified bill for storage and compute resources, and can leverage Zadara’s unique capability of providing dedicated disks, virtual controllers, and separated networking to achieve single tenant, predictable performance at a multitenant price. Zadara storage at VIVAVO is priced at the present equivalent of about US$0.12 per GB per month, billed by the hour.
“VIVAVO shares Zadara’s commitment to helping its customer extract the best from both traditional and cloud storage, flexibly and without compromise,” said Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage. “As enterprises around the globe embrace 'as a Service' approaches, we are committed to extending our ecosystem to become the ubiquitous platform for enterprise cloud storage, with data centers available everywhere in the world. We’re already available throughout the US, Europe and Japan, and now through our relationship with VIVAVO, we at Zadara have further expanded our footprint in the Asia Pacific region.”
VIVAVO is the regional leader in Disaster Recovery and Software Defined Storage Network Service Provider particularly in the Asia Pacific regions. With full fault tolerant and highly availability architectural design, the infrastructure is specially built for almost all mission critical applications. With regional operation and support hub in Hong Kong and own dedicated cloud infrastructures in Hong Kong, Singapore and other major cities in China, Malaysia, Thailand as well as Japan in 2014, VIVAVO can provide complete regional DR and Storage Services to all size of customers with flexible pricing structure.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
