PeakColo, which offers IaaS cloud services via channel partners, has launched Mountain-Moving Storage, a white-label object-oriented storage-as-a-service offering.
Mountain-Moving Storage is geared to value-added resellers, agents and service providers that need to manage petabyte-scale amounts of data for their clients.
Based on NetApp’s Distributed Content Repository Solution, Mountain-Moving Storage offers multiple solutions for managing massive data repositories, including deep archival of unstructured data, long-term backup retention, and archival of video and image objects such as medical records.
It also addresses regulatory requirements, including PCI, HIPAA and SOX, offering 100 percent SLA arrangements.
“PeakColo’s new storage offering is also a way to leverage object-minded applications such as Web 2.0 and emerging applications designed with objects in mind,” the company said.
By bundling the storage solution into their own service offerings, channel providers can create customized back-up solutions for their clients with protection of their existing data, as well as plan for future data requirements. Once stored, data can be accessed anytime, from anywhere, the company explained.
“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 for service provider partners at 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’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.”
