Steel ORCA has selected Zadara Storage as its partner to offer a unified cloud and on-premise software defined storage (SDS) platform, powered by Zadara Storage VPSA. By offering an enterprise Storage-as-a-Service platform with a pay-as-you-go model, Steel ORCA would be able to provide its customers a solution that addresses the scalability, manageability and the economic limitations of traditional storage arrays.
“We developed Steel ORCA storage-as-a-service to address one of the most critical and costly challenges for corporate IT: digital information and inefficient data storage,” said Larry Hess, CTO cloud services at Steel ORCA. “In many markets, but particularly Healthcare, data storage demand is growing at such a pace that you can no longer be reactive. Steel ORCA storage-as-a-service, powered by Zadara Storage, gives control of this data sprawl back to our clients in an easy to use, cost effective, elastic, consumption-based pricing model.”
Zadara Storage’s patented, software-defined Virtual Private Storage Arrays (VPSA) deliver flexible, multi-tenant enterprise SAN and NAS technology for peta-scale primary and secondary storage. VPSA is available via a wide range of worldwide cloud and colocation providers, including a value-added relationship with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Dimension Data, CloudSigma, and others.
“We are thrilled to be adding Steel ORCA to our family of partners,” said Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage. “Steel ORCA’s strong reputation for helping organizations improve their IT infrastructure to drive efficiencies and profitability make them an excellent partner for Zadara Storage. Steel ORCA is in a unique position to align our technology with customers who require agile, flexible storage services enabling users to focus on their core business rather than managing their data growth.”
