This is a Press Release edited by StorageNewsletter.com on Thu, May 24th, 2012
For public cloud IaaS
It eliminates growing storage bottlenecks and variable performance in the cloud, while achieving delivery and cost efficiency.
"The performance, cost and reliability of cloud storage solutions have historically been major barriers to companies' cloud adoption," says Robert Jenkins, CloudSigma CTO. "With SigSTORE, we are removing these concerns and enabling companies to realize the flexibility, scalability and cost-savings benefits of a public cloud environment while ensuring the performance and reliability of the storage for their critical systems and applications. No one else in the public cloud space is offering a distributed SSD storage solution like this, let alone with an associated performance and availability SLA. It is a truly innovative product that will increase the rate of cloud adoption among enterprises."
SigSTORE is sold as a utility service, unbundled from other resources, including RAM and CPU, so companies can purchase gigabytes and IOPS in terms of minimum performance levels, without issues of over- or under-provisioning.
With up to 2TB space on each SSD drive and the ability to set minimum guaranteed IOPS on an individual, drive by drive basis, companies using CloudSigma's IaaS platform can ensure they have the storage resources for any business scenario or critical application, at a cost that doesn't break the bank.
Traditional, magnetic-based storage systems are not suited for the randomized, multi-tenant access of a public cloud and simply cannot keep up with such requirements, thereby causing massive performance bottlenecks. SigSTORE resolves these issues with its performance capabilities and availability and reliability. It's priced at less than half the cost of traditional magnetic-based storage solutions. Guaranteed by cloud-based storage SLA, CloudSigma is delivering the innovation the cloud storage market needs to increase adoption and alleviate cloud storage concerns of performance and cost.
"CloudSigma is clearly leading the cloud storage field by making SSD storage available as part of their Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform," says Tim Lloyd, CensorNet Ltd.'s MD. "For CensorNet, this means that it is now viable to deploy disk I/O intensive applications in the cloud, which ultimately means a better service to our customers and greater scalability for the future. CloudSigma's innovation in this field will undoubtedly propel other companies' to adopt the cloud, increase storage and continue to receive performance on par with bare metal. We are excited to be an early adopter of this new service."
