Zadara™ Enterprise Storage as a Service (STaaS) Now Available Throughout Asia Pacific Via new VIVAVO Relationship

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.”

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing.
