InfoRelay Enterprise Cloud Services Network to Deploy on IceWEB Storage Systems
IceWEB Inc., which provides unified data storage and building blocks for cloud storage networks, announced that InfoRelay is deploying IceWEB Unified Data Storage to power its enterprise cloud infrastructure, providing global, on-demand data center and hosting services for thousands of customers. InfoRelay has begun to unify all of its file-based cloud operations onto a single, high-performance, highly scalable, shared pool of storage, streamlining data management and increasing efficiency across three geographically disparate data center facilities. With IceWEB storage, InfoRelay can scale its storage resources with customer demand, reducing capital expenditures while delivering robust, flexible and responsive services to its customers.
"Our cloud services platform was designed to meet customer needs for enterprise-class data center resources, the IceWEB platform was designed from the onset with key features, including virtual machine integration and unmatched storage efficiency," said Russell Weiss, president of InfoRelay.
InfoRelay's data center and hosting services deliver fully automated solutions from facilities across the United States, providing enterprises with complete access, control, security and scalability. InfoRelay's traditional data storage systems were typically not cost-effective when scaling to meet the high I/O and data growth requirements of this rapidly expanding market, which prevented InfoRelay from fully capitalizing on market demand. By deploying IceWEB, InfoRelay’s cloud infrastructure will be able to service a broad spectrum of enterprise applications—including server and desktop virtualization, web services, high transactional workloads and disaster recovery—improving its ability to address customer needs.
"As businesses adopt cloud services to reduce costs and increase efficiency, the providers' most immediate challenge is how best to manage the rapid data growth and high performance requirements of their expanding customer base. With IceWEB's ability to support multiple tiers of data in one platform, cloud providers can deploy cost effective, high density Enterprise SATA drives or high performance SAS and Solid State disk drive to support many types of applications," said John Signorello, IceWEB’s CEO. "IceWEB is working to tightly integrate our platform with all major cloud software companies including VMWare, Citrix and Microsoft."
