Storage, Inc., provider of enterprise-class private cloud storage by
the hour, continues to expand its presence around the world and today
announced that its acclaimed Virtual Private Storage Array™ (VPSA™)
storage as a service (STaaS) is now available in Singapore thanks to
Zadara's new relationship with VIVAVO, a leading Infrastructure as a
Service (IaaS) provider which owns dedicated cloud infrastructures in
Singapore, Hong Kong and other major cities in China, Malaysia, and
Through the relationship, VIVAVO now will offer its customers the
ability to buy Zadara's private block and file Storage Area Network
(SAN) and Network
Attached Storage (NAS) services at hourly rates for either (for
applications) or secondary (for repository) storage, without long-term
leases or commitments, and with the flexibility and affordability of the
cloud. For the first time, VIVAVO users can now access enterprise-class
storage features including clustering, NFS and CIFS support, and high
Quality of Service (QoS) levels as demanded by databases and other high
IOPS and throughput applications. For existing Zadara customers in other
regions of the world, the addition of VIVAVO means that Singapore
becomes an available replication location if needed. No matter where
they are in the world, customers are a reasonable replication distance
from a Zadara data center - so that at the push of a button one can
automatically replicate to many other places on the planet.
Additional VIVAVO locations offering Zadara's Storage as a Service will
be announced separately in the coming weeks.
"We believe Zadara will significantly enhance our service offerings and
further differentiate ourselves as the regional DR and storage cloud's
leading provider," said Franis Au, CEO of VIVAVO.

storage solution helps us satisfy an even more diverse set of storage
needs for our customers and, together, we are helping advance the public
cloud market by enabling enterprise-grade tiered storage strategies in
technology works by providing a complete, turnkey storage service
that customers assemble like building blocks - choosing the drives and
controllers they need, and provisioning them online in minutes them from
a dedicated administration console. Zadara delivers its storage by
placing dedicated, flexibly deployed hardware on premises at VIVAVO's
data centers adjacent to VIVAVO's compute resources, so cloud-delivered
performance remains exceptional, even for massive data volumes. VIVAVO
customers receive one unified bill for storage and compute resources,
and can leverage Zadara's unique capability of providing dedicated
disks, virtual controllers, and separated networking to achieve single
tenant, predictable performance at a multitenant price. Zadara storage
at VIVAVO is priced at the present equivalent of about US$0.12 per GB
per month, billed by the hour.

best from both traditional and cloud storage, flexibly and without
compromise," said Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage. "As enterprises
