365 Data Centers Adds Local Enterprise Cloud Storage

365 Data Centers introduced a local, enterprise cloud storage-as-service (STaaS) across 17 U.S. markets. The service is geared for applications such as clustered databases, big-data analytics, file storage, archiving, storage migration, backup, remote disaster recovery and temporary workloads.

365 Cloud Storage provides enterprise-class security and controls, self-service provisioning, high security and pay-for-use pricing.  Some additional features include selection of dedicated SATA, SAS and SSD drives; support for both SAN block storage and NAS file storage (NFS/SMB), and 10Gbps and 1Gbps private network access via cross connect or metro fiber.

"Businesses continue to struggle with the non-stop growth and management of storage. It is costly and risky to buy dedicated storage. Public cloud providers have been unable to crack the enterprise cloud storage market because it requires businesses to move both applications and data into the cloud," said Keao Caindec, CMO, 365 Data Centers. "365 is bringing the cloud to 17 local markets. We believe businesses should be able to connect their enterprise applications and servers to local on-demand storage to support development, testing, QA and production environments securely. We enable our clients to reduce the risk associated with purchasing dedicated physical storage infrastructure while avoiding large upfront capital expenditures and dramatically reducing total cost of ownership."
