LONDON, April 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- From the OpenStack Summit in Austin, Storage Made Easy today announced that it had won a 100,000 user account with a top tier United States telecommunications provider for use with OpenStack Swift Object Storage.
Storage Made Easy was chosen after a long Proof of Concept process involving several large high profile vendors. The customer use case involves replacing existing file storage and user home directories with a web based solution that offered a frictionless user experience.
Storage Made Easy was the chosen vendor as it had a native connector to the Telco's OpenStack vendor of choice; offered robust user collaboration functionality; integrated with the Telco's chosen Mobile Device Management solution; did not tamper with the names of files that were uploaded using the solution thereby preventing vendor lock-in; offered strong content tagging and content search capabilities; and was able to offer professional services to tailor its solution to fit the enterprise use case rather than having to fit the use case around a product.
Jim Liddle Storage Made Easy CEO said, "We are seeing a huge upturn in our solution being used with both OpenStack and S3 compatible Object Storage. Many enterprises wish to embrace Object Storage because of the compelling ROI it offers against existing solutions, but it needs to be able to be used with not only backup and archive but also other key strategic enterprise use cases. This is ultimately what Storage Made Easy provides. It is a facilitator for enabling strategic use of not only OpenStack but also other object storage solutions."
