Zadara™ Storage, Inc., provider of enterprise-class cloud storage as a service (STaaS), today announced that media and other companies in the Los Angeles area in California now can benefit from a more effective enterprise cloud storage option thanks to a new relationship between Zadara and CoreSite Reality Corporation (NYSE:COR), a provider of network-dense, cloud-enabled and enterprise-class data center solutions. Effective immediately, CoreSite’s Los Angeles One Wilshire data center campus now allows the international telecommunications carriers, media and entertainment companies, cloud providers, social network and gaming sites, and enterprises that are co-located there to enjoy Zadara’s Virtual Private Storage Array (VPSA) solution for block and file Storage Area Network (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) services. CoreSite customers gain the flexibility and affordability of a cloud solution for either primary (for applications) or secondary (for repository) storage, yet with the superior Quality of Service (QoS) of traditional storage.
With many LA area organizations such as those in the media and entertainment industry relying on computing applications whose constantly changing files perform better on NAS and SAN storage than on object storage offerings, the CoreSite relationship with Zadara is set to have a significant impact on these businesses’ ability to benefit from the best of both traditional and cloud storage, with great flexibility and without compromise. In choosing Zadara, CoreSite colocation customers can meet the demanding performance targets of mission-critical applications, yet leverage the cloud’s superior economics and scale, and pay as they go for these resources out of operating rather than capital expenses. In addition, companies with Asia-Pacific or other global collaboration and disaster recovery requirements can automatically replicate to any Zadara site around the world, including Northern California, Singapore, Tokyo, the US East Coast, Toronto, Zurich, Dublin, and more.
“CoreSite is proud to provide services to enable Zadara’s enterprise-class VPSA solution which offers the scalability to add or change storage capacity at will throughout our Los Angeles facilities,” said Brian Warren, Senior Vice President at CoreSite. “In addition to storage-as-a-service from Zadara, our local customers can interconnect to cloud-based IT resources and applications resources as part of CoreSite’s Open Cloud Exchange community of enterprises and networks and cloud providers.”
Zadara’s dedicated, flexibly-deployed hardware is located on premises at CoreSite’s facilities, adjacent to CoreSite customers’ compute resources, and connected to servers by CoreSite’s high-speed fiber lines. This architecture allows cloud-delivered QoS to remain exceptional, even for massive data volumes. Zadara’s approach uniquely provides dedicated disks, virtual controllers, and separate networking to achieve single-tenant, predictable performance at a multitenant price. Each Zadara customer receives its own management interface from which they can add or eliminate disks, switch from disk to SSDs and back, adjust controller capacity, and fine tune their storage needs on the fly – allowing flexibility and control. Zadara storage is priced starting at around 11¢ per GB per month depending on controller and disk selection, and billed by the hour.
“Organizations are either staying put on traditional storage because they haven’t found the enterprise-grade features they need in the cloud or they’ve had frustrating experiences with rudimentary cloud storage that required complex architectures or yielded insufficient or unreliable performance,” said Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage. “Through our relationship with CoreSite we’re eager to help more service providers and enterprises start moving more of their business applications to the cloud.”
Zadara Storage and CoreSite will showcase media & entertainment applications for STorage as a Service (STaaS) via CoreSite’s data centers at the Hollywood Post Alliance 2014 Tech Retreat, February 17-21 at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
