Bitcasa Named Advanced Technology Partner by Amazon Web Services

Bitcasa CloudFS Platform Extends Amazon S3 Storage With an API-Enabled Cloud File System

SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 -- Bitcasa, the company that makes cloud storage simple and secure, today announced that it has been named an Advanced Technology Partner by Amazon Web Services (AWS), validating the strength of its secure and scalable cloud storage solutions.

Bitcasa enables secure and flexible Amazon S3 storage; data replication and mobility; and data consolidation across AWS regions. Developers can select the best combination of data centers to meet their needs without writing any custom code. Additionally, for developers looking to leverage structured file systems, Bitcasa recently introduced the Bitcasa CloudFS API, which adds advanced functionality on top of the Amazon S3 cloud infrastructure. It provides developers with a proven, secure and scalable file system with private key encryption, and media transcoding services to save development time and to optimize overall storage performance.

"Bitcasa built its consumer cloud storage service on Amazon S3 and our technology was proven on their infrastructure, storing more than 45 petabytes of data for customers in 140 countries," said Brian Taptich, Bitcasa CEO. "Working with trusted storage partners such as Amazon will help us continue to provide developers with the most reliable and best experience possible."

For distributors, resellers, network operators, telcos and OEMs that want their own branded cloud service, Bitcasa also offers a Turn-key Drive, which enables partners to go to market immediately with their own cloud storage solution as a profit center instead of a cost center. These customers and partners receive all the functionality that Bitcasa offers consumers while owning their customers' entire experience, as opposed to handing their customer off to a third party for storage.

With both the CloudFS API and the Turn-key Drive, Bitcasa gives its customers the ability to quickly integrate and offer secure, high performance cloud services, while controlling their brand, user data and experience. Bitcasa leverages Amazon's network of regional data centers to store users' data in the region in which it's created, for added performance and data privacy.

The Amazon Partner Network (APN) is the global partner program of Amazon Web Services. The program focuses on helping partners build a successful AWS-based business by providing business, technical, marketing, and go to market (GTM) support. As an APN Advanced Technology Partner, Bitcasa will gain access to a variety of tools, training, and support to further enhance its cloud storage services.
