Zadara Storage First To Offer 5 TB HDD Drives With Its Enterprise Storage as a Service (STaaS) For Even Greater Cost Efficiencies

IRVINE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Zadara™ Storage, Inc., whose enterprise Storage as a Service (STaaS) offering provides fully-managed NAS and SAN in the cloud with high QoS, scalability and privacy, today announced the addition of 5 TB Repository Drives to its complement of available SSD and HDD storage options. The move makes Zadara Storage the first cloud-enabled storage provider to offer the cost-, power-, and space saving advantages of these drives to IT managers. Enterprises and service providers using Zadara's proven Virtual Private Storage ArrayTM (VPSATM) solution now can obtain even better pricing with the 5 TB drives' price/performance advantages. The new 5 TB drives are available to users of Zadara's VSPA at both Amazon Web Services (News - Alert) (AWS) and Microsoft Azure's data centers today, as well to organizations that want to install Zadara's solution on premise.

The 5 TB drives provide exceptional price/GB ratio and enable volumes sizes of hundreds of terabytes for massive data storage application such as geospatial information systems (GIS), video, SaaS (News - Alert) and big data. With their low power consumption and improved density, the 5 TB drives, when coupled with Zadara's standard SSD cache, 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. As has always been true with Zadara Storage, customers can later revise these choices and scale up or down with the click of a button in line with capacity and performance needs.

"The best customer-focused solution is an intelligent combination of flash cache, flash capacity, and cost-effective spinning drives. Hybrid storage yields the right performance at the right price and, uniquely, can support multiple price-performance points simultaneously," said Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage. "We're delighted to offer 5 TB Repository Drives alongside our SSD and other HDD choices. And as the industry continues to innovate, we will continue to keep pace by making sure we provide a broad variety of choices with our dedicated drives so that we remain the best and most efficient option for running important applications in the cloud."
