Zadara Storage Debuts On-Premise as a Service (OPaaS) Enterprise Storage - Fully-Managed SAN and NAS Private Cloud Storage With Pay-As-You-Go Pricing

Zadara™ Storage, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of its VPSA™ On-Premise as a Service (OPaaS) solution, a groundbreaking private cloud storage as a service option that provides fully-managed enterprise SAN (block) and NAS (file) with consumption-based pricing and no need for capital expenditure. Proven in Zadara’s public cloud deployments over the last three years, VPSA OPaaS is physically delivered to any enterprise, colocation or service provider, and leverages Zadara’s patent pending Virtual Private Storage Array (VPSA) solutions, that is already deployed across four continents.

Zadara Storage’s VPSA OPaaS is the first SAN and NAS product that eliminates the need to invest capital dollars and staff, yet it offers all the benefits of traditional enterprise-class storage plus the flexibility, rapid and elastic scaling with a pay-as-you-go pricing as if this were a cloud-based solution. Finally, IT teams can buy storage the way they’ve always wanted – on demand. Zadara Storage’s VPSA OPaaS provides IT managers with their choice of SSD and HDD resources with the full ability to scale up or scale down instantly from an online console – and to replicate to Zadara Storage in public clouds worldwide to form hybrid clouds - but with the entire resource owned and maintained by Zadara, with included SLA, hardware replacement, remote monitoring and support.

“Zadara’s VPSA OPaaS is a unique solution,” said Ben Woo, managing director at the global market research firm Neuralytix. “Despite what most people assume at first, OPaaS is not a storage gateway, nor a CapEx workaround such as a lease, and does not affect the balance sheet. OPaaS also is not dependent on AWS, Azure or other cloud service providers. Instead, OPaaS represents an elastic, managed NAS and SAN with cloud capabilities built on top of it. Enterprises and service providers alike are looking for storage-as-a-service that is simple and rapid to deploy, infinitely scalable, does not take up precious personnel time, and comes with a pay-per-use model. Zadara’s OPaaS represents this contemporary approach to storage.”

“Zadara Storage’s OPaaS is like getting a chauffeured Rolls Royce where you pay by the mile – and can swap your ride as you drive along,” said Rajinder Basi, CEO at FlexiScale, a provider of a wholly scalable cloud hosting infrastructure on demand. “We were about to spend a huge sum on a more traditional hardware storage infrastructure when we learned about Zadara’s VPSA OPaaS solution, and we gave it an immediate thumbs up because it’s OpEx business model matches exactly our own with the multitenancy, metering and billing features we need to run our business - allowing customers to scale out and down their infrastructure on demand. The solution has let us avoid a hefty CapEx outlay and gives us the flexibility to make sure we’re providing the perfect platform for the customer now, as well as in the future – while freeing us from the mundane grunt work of managing a storage infrastructure.”

Named in Gartner’s Cool Vendors in Storage 2014 list, Zadara Storage designed its VPSA OPaaS for those organizations needing from 20 TB to multi-petabytes of primary storage applications requiring multi-tenancy with rock solid Quality of Service (QoS) and elasticity. Zadara manages all assets for the customer and bills them based on consumption, without upfront fees and with a minimum commitment of only six months. Also unique is the ability to form hybrid clouds by linking to Zadara Storage VPSA in public clouds including AWS and Microsoft Azure, in sites across the world. Zadara OPaaS is also well suited for applications that benefit from cloud-based disaster recovery, and cloud bursting where extra cloud computing resources are applied as needed to supplement on-premise environments.

”This is IT the way IT managers want to buy it – managed, elastic, private and OpEx-only,” said Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage. “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. 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.”
