Expands "Cloud" Coverage to Online Enterprise Storage, Backup and Archiving
Jul. 25, 2008 10:30 AM
Nirvanix announced the commercial availability of its Storage Delivery Network (SDN) for Enterprises, providing large companies with an archival and backup storage solution that simplifies management and reduces the costs typically associated with storage server management in a set of pre-packaged solutions.
Nirvanix’s enterprise offering provides companies with more than 5TBs of data in a highly scalable storage and delivery platform that satisfies even the most-demanding, business-critical needs, including:
- Breakthrough Economics
- Security and Reliability
- High Availability
- Versatile Ingestion Tools
- Enterprise-Class Support
Additional advantages over online storage offerings from other vendors include a maximum file size of 256 GB as opposed to the 5 GB maximum imposed by others; automated file replication for enterprise-class availability; enterprise-grade ingestion tools including virtual CIFS/NFS drive mounts and cross-connect services; clustered geo-node architecture for improved download performance and integrated media processing functionality for image resizing and rotating, and audio and video transcoding, scaling and frame extraction.
“The ability to safely and efficiently store and archive large data sets without the time, complexity and costs of managing server hardware is an ideal situation for companies of any and all sizes,” said Patrick Harr, Nirvanix’s Chief Executive Officer. “But, until now, the ability to deliver that solution to the largest customers remained elusive as many attempts at providing cloud storage to enterprises lacked the necessary services required in this unique market.
With the peace of mind enabled by Nirvanix’s security and guaranteed reliability/availability, along with the industry’s only 100% SLA
, enterprises can now store their archival data in the cloud without worry of outages or downtime.”For more information on Nirvanix contact Matthew Harvey, Matthewh@jprcom.com at JPR Communications.
