SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 29 — Zadara Storage, the innovator in cloud block storage that brought Private Storage to the Public Cloud, announced today that their Virtual Private Storage Array (VPSA) service is now available in the AWS US West region in addition to the existing AWS US East.
At the AWS Summit - San Francisco event on April 30, Zadara Storage will demonstrate remote asynchronous replication between storage volumes in AWS US East and AWS US West regions, respectively. These new capabilities are the latest additions to the Enterprise-class features of Zadara Storage VPSA, and make it possible to perform seamless failover of applications between AWS regions, e.g., during a disaster.
Zadara's on-demand VPSA block and file storage solution features virtual SAN and NAS with dedicated drives, dual controllers, RAID level selection, volume-wise IO throttling, volume sharing and clustering, full performance metering, and hourly usage billing. VPSAs can be connected directly to EC2 instances via iSCSI and NFS.
Zadara Storage is built for security and data privacy, providing encryption both at-rest and in-flight, and dedicated hardware and network resources for each client. With the new asynchronous remote mirroring capability, AWS customers will have the ability to quickly switch applications between regions. This capability is helpful not only for disaster recovery, but also in response to shifts in regional demand, planned downtime, and network outages or slowdowns.
"Zadara's many customers in the AWS US East region are already enjoying unmatched Enterprise-class storage services," said Nelson Nahum, CEO and Co-founder of Zadara Storage. "With the addition of VPSA service in the US West region and remote replication across regions, we make a great thing even better. We are already famous for enabling the running of Enterprise applications in the cloud and, with these additions, we add yet another layer of resilience."
