Zadara Storage has launched a new private cloud storage offering that puts on-premise storage area network (SAN) and network-attached storage (NAS) behind a customer’s firewall and then is sold on a subscription basis.
The Virtual Private Storage Array (VPSA) On-Premise as a Service (OPaaS) takes Zadara’s technology from its public cloud storage deployments and puts it behind the firewall. Zadara is hoping to attract enterprises with this on-premise cloud storage offering, enabling their IT departments to purchase such storage on demand.
“Tens of thousands of organizations have applications that need to stay on premise and behind the firewall, but so far that has meant they’ve been excluded from many of the benefits of software-defined storage. No more,” said Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage, in a prepared statement. “With Zadara’s OPaaS solution, IT teams are free to save time, budget and hassle while gaining the incredible elasticity and agility scale they need—with the control and privacy of on-premise deployments using a proven technology approach.”
Essentially, it’s an on-premise SAN and NAS that is managed as a service in a hybrid model, but for some companies, it could be attractive, said Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT. How much demand there will be remains to be seen, but King told Talkin’ Cloud that Zadara’s ability to “cloudify” data while keeping it on-premise could be of interest to some companies.
“There are some vendor offerings out there which are at least partly similar to Zadara’s, but the real benefit I see here is the flexibility of the agreement, which can be struck for as little as six months and bills according to the volume of storage used,” King said.
