TwinStrata Expands Flexibility and Convenience with Release of New In-Cloud Storage Gateways

Availability of in-cloud versions of CloudArray support sophisticated disaster recovery plans and cloud-based storage infrastructures

NATICK, Mass., Aug. 7 — TwinStrata, Inc., the leading innovator of cloud-based data storage, backup and disaster recovery solutions, today announced that TwinStrata CloudArray is now available as an in-cloud gateway to support progressive organizations with cloud-based infrastructures. By enabling CloudArray to run on a growing number of cloud compute environments – IBM SmartCloud Enterprise, Rackspace, Amazon EC2 and Google (availability late Q3) – TwinStrata delivers a solution ideal for both enhancing storage infrastructures already deployed in the cloud, as well as sophisticated disaster recovery efforts.

Offered in addition to TwinStrata's existing on-premise CloudArray options, the new in-cloud gateway platforms provide numerous benefits including:

  • Disaster recovery for on-premise applications – On-premise applications can fail over using the in-cloud gateway, a cost-effective way to recover business applications without dedicated remote infrastructure.
  • Multi-region, multi-site data replication for cloud applications – Geo-replicated cloud storage isolates data from regional outages.
  • Off-cloud replication – Options such as local block to cloud storage and replication to an external secondary cloud deliver an effective disaster strategy for in-cloud infrastructures.
  • Nearly unlimited storage capacity – CloudArray can grow or shrink capacity on demand without upgrading or downgrading cloud server instances, and can offer nearly unlimited storage on-demand to any server and any size server (up to 50PB).
  • Centralized management of cloud storage infrastructure – Consolidate and simplify storage management across multiple servers to a "SAN in the cloud," for non-disruptive, fast, transparent, self-service access to cloud storage.

"With our expanded choice of platforms, cloud storage gateways are no longer only limited to on-premise deployment and can greatly enhance in-cloud application deployments," said Nicos Vekiarides, chief executive officer at TwinStrata. "Whether you want to avoid the impact of cloud outages or local outages, easily and flexibly grow capacity without limits, or benefit from a centralized SAN in the cloud, CloudArray delivers trademark simplicity and enterprise-class data protection."
