Zadara Storage launches Aussie expansion with Amazon Web Services

Zadara Integration Program to lead relationship develpment with A/NZ AWS partner community

Zadara Storage has expanded its AWS offering to Australia with the launch of its enterprise-class cloud storage-as-a-service solution.

The company’s Cloud storage service is now available in the AWS Asia Pacific (Sydney) region following the deployment by partner SerenITaas, a provider of advanced data storage solutions.

The deployment represents the fifth AWS region to offer Zadara’s Virtual Private Storage Array.

It is the tenth Zadara global data center, which enables traditional on-premise storage in a flexible, pay as you go, OpEx-only model for either primary or secondary storage applications.

Zadara’s Virtual Private Storage Array is co-located at Equinix’s facility in Mascot and is connected to the AWS compute resources via AWS Direct Connect high speed fibre lines.

According to a company statement, drives are private and not shared with anyone else, so users can obtain single-tenant performance at multi-tenant prices and avoid the 'noisy neighbour' problem, which occurs in competing services when other customers degrade storage performance.

Expansion to more drives, or switching from disks to SSDs, is as simple as clicking a button on the dedicated online management interface provided to each customer.

At any time users can also eliminate drives, adjust controller performance, and fine tune other storage needs on the fly – allowing agility and control in a flexible, pay-as-you-go model.

Zadara chief executive, Nelson Nahum, said the company was proud to make AWS Sydney its tenth datacentre to offer elastic, enterprise storage-as-a-service to local businesses.

“We’re eager for the AWS community to leverage this opportunity to migrate high-performance computing applications to the AWS Sydney area with our SAN like capabilities on board,” he said.

SerenITaaS deployed Zadara’s storage at the Equinix facility in the Mascot area of Sydney in part to meet the needs of its customers, distance learning solutions company, Echo360.

“All higher education segments, universities, TAFE and RTO, require a reliable way to store their valuable instructional media and videos,” said Echo360 chief executive, Tony Abate.

“With Zadara deployed in Australia integrated with the AWS Sydney powering our compute Cloud, we have a unified, local hosting option for customers.

SerenITaaS, a sister company of Stratus Technology in Markham, Ontario, Canada, and a global Zadara Integration Program Partner, will also lead the development of relationships within the A/NZ AWS partner community, enabling local companies to resell Zadara Storage services in ANZ as well as from any of the global Zadara Storage node locations.

SerenITaaS chief executive Glenn Cameron said he was delighted to help bring Zadara Storage services for AWS to Australia and New Zealand.

"The Canadian and Australasian technology communities have always had a great relationship," he said.

"We look forward to working with the AWS partner community down under to expand its portfolio of capabilities."
