Zenlayer and Zadara partner on fully-managed cloud storage services at the edge

Cloud services platform Zadara and software services provider Zenlayer have joined forces to deliver fully-managed cloud storage services at the edge. The new collaboration will see the Zadara’s enterprise zStorage solutions become available at Zenlayer’s North American locations and in the future in India, China, and South America.

“Zadara is a pioneer in enterprise storage-as-a-service and was the first to offer it – making them a natural choice for us,” commented Zenlayer’s VP of Partnerships and Alliance, Lawrence Lee.

The solutions can also be deployed either on-premises, across clouds, or in a hybrid environment, and on the desired hardware (flash and/or hard disk-based).

“Zadara’s zStorage solution simplifies clouds, increases productivity, and decreases costs for Zenlayer’s customers,” Lee added.

From a technical standpoint, zStorage supports various data types, including block, file, and, object and protocols (NFS, CIFS, FC, iSCSI, iSER, S3, Swift, and more). In terms of specific applications, the firms said the zStorage solutions can be deployed from on-premises data centers, private colocation facilities, or directly from the cloud via Zadara’s Federated Edge program.

“At a time when organizations across the globe are shifting and redefining [how] they do business, simplifying storage and management to ensure greater efficiencies is more critical than ever before,” explained Nelson Nahum, CEO, and co-founder of Zadara.

“We are excited to partner with Zenlayer and bring our fully managed cloud services to their customers around the globe,” he concluded.

Beyond Zadara’s zStorage, Zenlayer offers a wide variety of infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings, including Cloud Networking, Bare Metal Cloud, IP Transit, and Edge Data Center Services.

The company has also recently launched a new platform-as-a-service (PaaS) product dubbed Zenlayer Global Accelerator, an API-driven network acceleration service designed to improve application performance across international borders.
