Trends in Green Storage: Press Release

RELDATA Is Positioned to Continue Significant Growth in Cloud Storage

Key Findings from Storage Strategies NOW Point to Increased Adoption and Deployment of Cloud Storage Services

RELDATA Inc. (www.RELDATA.com), the innovation leader in unified block and file storage solutions over iSCSI, announced today that new research from Storage Strategies NOW (SSG-NOW) confirms RELDATA is well positioned to continue its technology leadership and market growth in cloud storage. Storage Strategies NOW, a specialist storage analysis and research organization, recently released "Cloud Storage: Adoption, Practice and Deployment," a report co-sponsored by the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA).

The report defines cloud storage, outlines the explosive growth in cloud storage and details how small and enterprise-size businesses are adopting and deploying cloud storage services for backup, archive, email and bulk storage data. Also included in the report are the results of an IT Professionals Cloud Adoption Survey, co-sponsored by the Storage Networking Industry Association.

Key findings of the report and survey include:

  • More than 57 percent of respondents expect to adopt cloud storage;
  • They will store e-mail, front office application data and backup data in the cloud, in that order; and,
  • Standards are viewed as more important for public cloud implementations than private clouds.

"The report's key findings coincide with our experience of the market and customers' cloud needs over the past year," said Victor Walker, CEO, RELDATA. "We've seen very healthy sales growth of our Unified Storage Solutions, which enable IT organizations to control their storage resources by improving performance and reducing costs."

The report wrote that RELDATA's "9400 Series delivers the high performance and throughput required for hypervisor and cloud computing environments, all while maintaining a low total cost of ownership."

"RELDATA's Unified Storage Systems enable private, hybrid and business application cloud service providers, hosting eDiscovery or other similar applications, to deliver on their customers' expectations of affordable, flexible, and reliable on-demand storage," said Walker. "We applaud SNIA's CDMI (API) standards initiative. It is a solid step towards simplification, rapid application integration and delivery of our advanced storage features to cloud service providers who are dealing with and managing virtualized environments and multi-vender storage infrastructures."
