Zadara Storage Ltd, the provider of enterprise storage-as-a-service (STaaS), and Trio announced that Zadara’s VPSA Storage Array platform is being offered by Trio as part of their new storage-as-a-service portfolio.
The offering is intended for Israeli-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 Israel.
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 (CapEx) model of capacity acquisition and management cannot keep up with the storage needs of enterprise. Instead, IT organizations are being asked to reduce costs, while at the same time providing 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 local Israeli 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 Asaf Hayon, CEO and owner, Trio. “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 Trio service will provide local Israeli businesses a full-service offering, including Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS), DR-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 Trio,” said Dani Naor, VP, international sales, Zadara. “The Israeli market requires flexible storage solutions that provide the agility and scalability to support their growing businesses. The new storage services being offered by Trio will address the growing demand for OpEx-based storage solutions that are flexible and scalable, but also provide significant economic savings.“
