Zadara Storage, a global provider of enterprise storage as a service (STaaS) headquartered in Irvine, California, has announced the addition of 5 TB Repository Drives to its complement of available SSD and HDD storage options. The new 5 TB drives are available to users of Zadara’s VSPA at both Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure’s data centers.

With their low power consumption and improved density, the 5 TB drives – when coupled with Zadara’s standard SSD cache – would enable high I/O performance at a manageable cost. Zadara Storage customers may select the new 5 TB drives along with a number of other HDD and SSD choices when they provision their VPSA from within their private online management interface.
