Enterprise-class IaaS cloud service provider PeakColo, today launched Mountain-Moving Storage, a white-label object-oriented storage as a service offering. With Peak’s Mountain-Moving Storage resellers, agents and service providers can manage petabyte-scale amounts of data for their clients. The news follows PeakColo’s announcement of its participation in the new VMware Cloud Credits Purchasing Program.
Based on NetApp’s Distributed Content Repository Solution, the new Mountain-Moving Storage offers multiple solutions for managing massive data repositories such as:
- Deep archival of unstructured data.
- Long-term backup retention.
- Archival of video and image objects such as medical records, addressing regulatory requirements including PCI, HIPAA, and SOX.
– Jon Mellon, VP, NetApp.
“PeakColo’s Mountain-Moving Object-Oriented Storage service is a key differentiator for our channel partners – from value-added resellers to data center providers – that look to diversify their product portfolios with cloud-based offerings,” said Luke Norris, CEO and Founder of PeakColo. “With the massive amounts of unstructured data created and used by enterprises of all sizes, cost-effective management can be a real problem. Our Mountain-Moving Storage is easy to manage, while still allowing end-users quick access to their stored data. And unlike other providers, Peak does not charge customers for seeding or retrieving their data.”
Channel providers can create customized back-up solutions for their clients with full protection of their existing data, and plan for future data requirements by bundling PeakColo’s storage solution into their own service offerings. In addition, the new storage solution can also help in leveraging object-minded applications such as Web 2.0 and emerging applications designed with objects in mind.
“As a long-standing partner, PeakColo’s pure channel focus offers high-margin financial models to NetApp partners,” said Jon Mellon, vice president and general manager, Service Provider Partners, NetApp. “PeakColo’s new object-based storage service is a great addition to their portfolio and will help our channel partners better meet customer needs for managing petabyte-scale unstructured data.”
Peakcolo also announced that the new service comes with 100% Service Level Availability. For more details, please visit: peakcolo.com.
