Zunesis joins with Zadara Storage to offer storage-as-a-service housed in the FORTRUST data center in Denver.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 06, 2015
Last month, Zunesis announced their new partnership with Zadara Storage, a provider of enterprise-class storage-as-a-service (STaaS). They are now excited to reveal that they are setting up Zadara Storage in the FORTRUST data center located in Denver, Colorado.
The value of Zadara’s offering is vast in today’s IT world of constantly increasing demands and decreasing budgets. This is a true enterprise-class STaaS on an operating expense (OpEx) basis. Clients are charged only for consumed capacity, which is metered hourly and billed monthly. This eliminates, or at least reduces, the need for purchasing large storage arrays on a capital expense (CapEx) basis.
Placing Zadara storage into the FORTRUST data center offers many benefits to both current and potential clients. Primarily, the idea of STaaS is difficult for many clients to swallow; but by placing Zadara in the data center at FORTRUST, Zunesis will have the ability to perform live demonstrations for clients, allowing clients to see the functionality of the service firsthand.
Mitch Ross, VP of Sales at Zunesis, commented, “Zadara Storage is the perfect solution for many of our clients. Its flexibility allows them to be as hands-on or hands-off as they wish to be, and the OpEx model allows for a seamless online migration to increased or decreased capacity as the client’s needs evolve.”
On October 21, 2015, Zunesis and Zadara will be co-hosting a webinar that will explore in detail the benefits and capabilities of the Zadara cloud that is housed in Denver. For details or to register, please follow this link. All webinar attendees will receive a free power bank.
Interested companies are also encouraged to engage in a free 7-day trial. Whether the interest is to use Zadara for primary storage, DR target, backup capacity, or bursting capacity, Zunesis can help set up the trial in the FORTRUST data center so that clients can test drive the offering for themselves.
