Ensim Announces New Storage as a Service Solutions

Allows Cloud Service Providers to Enable Private, Secure File Sharing, Storage, and Backup for Small and Medium Sized Customers

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/14/14 -- Ensim Corporation, a leading provider of automation and orchestration solutions to service providers and enterprises for users and organizations with business applications, services and infrastructure in private, public, and hybrid clouds, today announced two new Storage as a Service (STaaS) Solutions. Among the latest offerings are Ensim File Manager and Ensim Backup Manager, which allow cloud service providers to quickly enable private, secure file storage, sharing and backup for their customers under their own brand name and from their own datacenter. Ensim's portfolio of StaaS products also include connectors for popular industry services like Mozy, the trusted online backup service backed by VMware and EMC Corporation for consumers and businesses around the world.

Leveraging Microsoft technologies, Ensim STaaS Solutions can easily be deployed with existing applications and services such as Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, and Lync. The storage solution infrastructure can be conveniently managed by Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 / Hyper V for dynamic scalability as more capacity is needed. The full complement of applications and services can be automated and managed by the Ensim Automation Suite for an end-to-end BSS and OSS solution with ordering, service catalog, billing, provisioning, and management.

Organizational and user-level quotas can be established and enforced in a reservation-based model and alerts can be set to inform customers when thresholds are hit so more capacity can be added or reallocated between users when needed. Customers can also order on a pay-per-use model to add capacity as desired and pay only for what is used.

Ensim File Manager provides a simple, private, secure and low-cost way for service providers to offer web-accessible folder capabilities to customers while also leveraging the benefit of enterprise-like security and user provisioning features.

Ensim Backup Manager enables cloud service providers to offer a complete and cost-effective solution to meet their customers' needs. The client application is Java-based and can run on Windows, Mac, or Linux OS and backup PCs and servers.

"Ensuring critical files are properly backed up to prevent data loss but also able to be shared conveniently between appropriate users is essential to SMBs and line-of-business units," said Agatha Poon, 451 Research. " Ensim's latest STaaS solutions, including secure sharing and data backup, fill growing demands from business-oriented service providers looking to accommodate customers' evolving storage requirements."

"Maintaining customer data and security integrity in service provider datacenters and in country is crucial in today's security-conscious world. With our latest Storage as a Service Solutions, Ensim enables cloud service providers to accommodate all of their customers' storage needs under their own platform and with their own brand," said Dave Wippich, CEO of Ensim.

Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago.

We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
