TwinStrata And Scality Announce Partnership

TwinStrata, a leading innovator in data protection and iSCSI cloud storage solutions, has integrated Scality's RING storage platform into its family of CloudArray virtual and physical appliances.
With the addition of Scality integration, CloudArray customers can now easily choose and deploy either a private cloud environment or connect with internationally available public cloud providers powered by Scality RING and receive off-site data protection and disaster recovery capabilities on a "plug-and-play" basis.
TwinStrat's CloudArray's "like local" performance, control, and policy-driven automation enables Scality customers to leverage the on-demand elasticity and adaptability of Scality's RING cloud storage through innovative asynchronous replication, in-cloud snapshots, dynamic caching, in-flight and at-rest encryption, compression, iSCSI, and continuous access to and control of data in the cloud. In the event of a disruption or an outage, data can be rapidly restored on-site, off-site, or in the cloud, providing secure, anywhere, anytime application and data accessibility.
Scality's RING software combines the storage capabilities of numerous x86 generic servers to deliver a storage cloud infrastructure with carrier-grade scalability, service availability and data reliability.
Scality's RING enables a lower cost of ownership, while providing a very simple management interface where additional performance or capacity can be added or removed to meet customer needs with zero service interruption.
Adam Couture, Gartner Research Director, said: "One of the primary use cases of cloud storage is as a low-cost alternative tier of storage, allowing migration of less used data. But whether you're talking public or private clouds, the challenge has always been integrating the cloud with traditional data centre storage infrastructure."
Together, Scality RING and TwinStrata CloudArray solve this challenge by providing a low-cost cloud storage infrastructure along with plug-and-play access to traditional IT infrastructures for off-site data protection and disaster recovery solutions.
The benefits of using TwinStrata CloudArray with the Scality RING storage platform are many and include:
  • Minimal operational requirements, elastic scalability, and a self-healing architecture with volume management
  • Flexible and agile business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities
  • a simple, affordable, fast and non-intrusive deployment model
  • Significantly reduced capes, open and management complexity
  • Access to public and private cloud infrastructures, hybrid models
TwinStrata's CEO Nicos Vekiarides, said: "Businesses are seeking ways to cut costs without sacrificing the security and integrity of their critical data assets. CloudArray's built-in flexibility and security satisfy the most stringent data storage and protection policies imaginable. Our partnership with Scality provides a way for CloudArray end users to meet their data protection demands by leveraging an innovative, robust and economical cloud storage architecture."
Jerome Lecat, Scality's CEO, added: "Storing, backing up and archiving an always increasing amount of data without growing the cost is one of the biggest challenges for business IT today. Scality RING's patented, self-repairing storage architecture revolutionises the enterprise world by delivering the unparalleled economics of the Cloud to every enterprise. Our partnership with TwinStrata offers enterprises an easy to deploy and secure solution to deal with critical data protection, email archiving and disaster recovery at a significantly reduced cost."
CloudArray, complete with Scality interoperability, is available from TwinStrata and through its network of partners. Further information is available at: www.twinstrata.com/cloudarray
