Zadara Storage Updates Enterprise Storage As a Service (STaaS) Prices; Dedicated Drives Reduced by Up To 51%; Enterprise Suite now Complimentary

Zadara™ Storage, Inc., provider of enterprise-class cloud storage as a service (STaaS) solutions, announced lower pricing for its flagship Virtual Private Storage Array (VPSA) offering that is available worldwide in ten locations across seven countries on 4 continents, at Amazon Web Services, Dimension Data, Equinix, CloudSigma, VIVAVO, KVH, CoreSite, SerenITaaS, and more partner data centers. Effective today, the per-drive pricing in Zadara’s VPSA offering was reduced by as much as 51%, depending on drive type. Zadara also announced that its award-winning Enterprise Suite of high-end features is now included with each VPSA at no additional cost.

At a time of increasing hardware performance with decreasing costs, Zadara’s enterprise storage continues to provide IT managers with heightened value and access to what remains the industry’s only capabilities for many critical features for enterprise applications to migrate off premises and into cloud deployments, whether public, hybrid or private. Concomitant price decreases will be delivered across the board in all geographies. Hallmark Zadara capabilities for such enterprise requirements as clustering, global asynchronous replication, and NFS and CIFS file sharing, are still a part of the VPSA service - and a major reason why so many accounts to date have moved mission-critical storage applications to Zadara’s enterprise Storage as a Service (STaaS) offering.

“This is not a belated April Fool’s prank. Our dramatic expansion of Tier 1 partnerships along with hardware cost decreases gives us even better operational efficiency, and we are passing along the savings to our customers,” said Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage. “After concluding our third consecutive quarter of doubling revenues and accelerating growth, Zadara is equipped to act upon our commitment to offer the most exceptional customer value in an enterprise cloud storage solution. We’re making it even more of a no-brainer for accounts to move their business applications, with high QoS and scalability, to our proven pay-as-you-go OpEx-only enterprise storage as a service offering.”

Zadara’s Virtual Private Storage Array is colocated at partners’ facilities and connected to compute resources via high speed fiber lines. Drives are private and not shared so Zadara users can obtain single-tenant performance at multitenant prices and avoid the “noisy neighbor” problem (which occurs in competing services when other customers degrade storage performance). Expansion to more drives, or switching from disks to SSDs, is as simple as clicking a button on the dedicated online management interface provided to each customer. At any time Zadara users can also eliminate drives, adjust controller performance, and fine tune other storage needs on the fly – allowing agility and control in a flexible, pay-as-you-go model.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
