Zadara Storage and The Technology Depot Announce New Enterprise Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) Solutions

Zadara Storage, the provider of enterprise-class storage-as-a-service (STaaS), and The Technology Depot today announced that Zadara's VPSA Storage Array platform is now being offered by The Technology Depot (Cloud Connect Solutions) as part of their new expanded storage-as-a-service portfolio. The new offering is intended for U.S.-based companies who are interested in migrating their existing CapEx storage to an OpEx-based cloud environment and international companies who are interested in hosting or replicating their data in Switch SUPERNAP Cloud Data Centers.

Industry research has shown that the public cloud storage-as-a-service market is growing at approximately 25% per year, and by 2020 will capture 25% of a massive $50 billion in enterprise storage spending (source: IT Brand Pulse, February 2017). This transition is driven by IT professionals recognizing that the traditional capital expense model of capacity acquisition and management cannot keep up with the data storage needs of today's enterprise. Instead, IT organizations are being asked to reduce costs, while at the same time providing immediately available, elastic, and reliable enterprise-grade storage. The traditional model of evaluating potential vendors, buying, installing and maintaining disk arrays and then repeating the cycle every 3-5 years cannot support this goal.

"The U.S. market is following the global trend away from purchasing storage and looking for as-a-service solutions that provide agility, flexibility and economic savings," said Brian Dean, CEO and CTO, at The Technology Depot. "We have chosen to partner with Zadara Storage because of their unique product offering. With Zadara Storage, we can offer our customers enterprise-grade block, file and object storage services in a flexible pay-as-you-go business model."

The new service will provide California, Arizona, and Nevada businesses a comprehensive enterprise storage solution including Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS), Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), Backup as-a-Service (BaaS), as well as server and virtualization services. Customers will have the option to replicate their data to remote Zadara Storage locations worldwide.

"We are thrilled to be launching this new service with our business partner The Technology Depot," said Doug Jury, vice president, solution sales, at Zadara Storage. "Enterprises and cloud service providers require flexible storage solutions that align with their business needs and support their growing amount of information assets. The new storage services being offered by The Technology Depot will address the increasing demand for OpEx-based storage solutions and provides compelling economic value that differentiates them in the marketplace."
