Cleversafe Launches Solution Network to Build Out Big Data Storage Ecosystem
CHICAGO --(Business Wire)--
Businesses today are challenged to provide their end users with a
complete storage solution. Today those requirements have grown to
include always-available access to information, ways to effectively
tier, retrieve and store content, backup and archive data for disaster
recovery and business continuity, and to meet all governance and
compliance requirements. To address these mounting challenges, Cleversafe
Inc., the solution for limitless data storage, today announced the
formation of The Cleversafe Solution Network designed to provide
customers with a comprehensive ecosystem offering the most
cost-effective, scalable and highly available end-to-end storage
solutions to address today's business requirements now and well into the
"Innovation, execution and technology leadership are at the center of
everything we do. The formation of The Cleversafe Solution Network
carries that mission forward," said Russ Kennedy, Vice President of
Product Strategy, Marketing and Customer Solutions for Cleversafe. "We
recognize the benefits that joint technology partnerships can bring to
customers and so we've engaged with 'best-in-class' providers to build
our Solution Network," said Kennedy. "Together we'll solve today's
storage challenges, and build new business opportunities and long-term
partnerships that will enable us to deliver comprehensive, proven
technology solutions to our shared markets."
"Customers inherently buy storage platforms to store data from a wide
variety of applications, all focused on delivering business value. The
problem is that not all application vendors are interoperable or are
integrated in such a way that companies can easily fold their storage
strategy together to solve the challenges associated with today's data
growth," said Deni Connor, Founding Analyst at Storage Strategies NOW.
"What Cleversafe has done with its Solution Network is to gather all of
the industry vendors that are most relevant to customers today and that
collectively offer an easy and very direct path to be able to adopt an
Cleversafe's expansive Solution Network consists of leading partners
Cloud Interface - Partners including Gladinet (News - Alert), Mezeo,
Panzura, Solid Instance, and WebDrive from South River Technologies
provide traditional cloud access to customer's applications, while
enabling customers to take advantage of Cleversafe's cost effective,
highly reliable and available storage system for cloud storage.
Content Management - Today's businesses run 24/7. To be most
effective, employees more than ever before, are embracing new
technologies for collaboration. They're sharing content in virtualized
environments and accessing that information from a wide variety of
mobile devices and workstations- wherever, whenever. At the same time,
employers are charged with safeguarding certain content in order to meet
compliance guidelines. Content management partners, such as DeJarnette
Research Systems, Microsoft (News - Alert) SharePoint and Panzura, enable customers to
efficiently and securely manage content while taking advantage of
Cleversafe's storage platform to scale and support their ever-growing
Big Data Analytics - Partners including Cloudera and IBM (News - Alert) provide
customers the ability to analyze large data sets and peform
sophisticated analytics-typically using Hadoop® or an equivalent
distributed data analysis application.
Systems Integrators - Solution Network Systems Integrators such
as Lockheed Martin provide implementation and associated professional
services for the Federal and Defense industries.
Data Backup - In order to maintain the critical function of data
backup and protect information for disaster recovery while maintaining
business continuity Cleversafe has teamed and integrated with leading
vendors CommVault (News - Alert) and Symantec.
File Access and Tiered Storage - The need to store, access and
manage large-scale storage sets is becoming ever more critical as more
data is accessed more often. Working with File Access and cloud gateway
vendor companies such as Panzura and QStar Technologies, Cleversafe's
object-based dispersed storage system can assist users and
administrators to easily and actively store, search and retrieve data
within an archive, while maintaining availability of data.
Operating Systems - At their very core, operating systems provide
a context within which programs can be created and run. They are a
fundamental component to any infrastructure environment whether physical
or virtual. Cleversafe's Operating System partners include Microsoft and
VMware, two of the most significant operating system organizations to
ensure that customers can quickly and easily deploy solutions, expand
their service offerings and extend their environments to meet the
demands of their users.
Network Optimization - In order to move more data across
data centers and to remote office locations while maintaining
application performance, Cleversafe has teamed with partners like
Riverbed and F5 to provide intelligent load balancing, big data traffic
management and WAN optimization. The result is Cleversafe and its
Network Optimization partners are bridging the gap and moving from
traditional to dynamic infrastructures by increasing the flexibility
between users and resources and enabling IT organizations to efficiently
scale their storage solutions and maintain network performance.
Hardware OEMs and Technologies - Cleversafe's partners in this
area include the industry's most reliable, energy efficient, and cost
efficient computing solutions to deliver the highest levels of
performance. Partners including Intel (News - Alert) and Seagate, deliver the physical
components and associated hardware to provide customers with the
platform and infrastructure they need to deploy and utilize Cleversafe's
dsNet storage solution.
In addition to the significant industry advantages offered by
collaborating with Cleversafe, the company's Solution Network includes a
"self-certification" that ensures third-party application
interoperability and support; providing assurance to customers of an
optimized solution that meets or exceeds their operational needs.

Cleversafe's dsNet system protects both data and metadata equally and is
inherently more reliable than traditional storage systems. By applying
the company's unique Information Dispersal technology to slice and
disperse data, single points of failure and centralized synchronization
points are eliminated. As data is distributed evenly across all
Slicestor nodes metadata can scale linearly and infinitely as new nodes
are added, thus reducing any scalability bottlenecks and increasing
performance and reliability. Cleversafe's unique approach delivers the
powerful combination of analytics and storage in a geographically
distributed single system allowing organizations to efficiently scale
their Big Data environments to hundreds of petabytes and even exabytes
