TwinStrata Joins the Artisan Infrastructure ISV Ecosystem
NATICK, Mass., May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TwinStrata, Inc., an innovator in cloud-integrated storage solutions, and Artisan Infrastructure, the wholesale Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider, have partnered to provide systems integrators and resellers with the ability to deliver enterprise-class virtualization and cloud computing services through the seamless integration of TwinStrata CloudArray® and Cornerstone, Artisan Infrastructure's wholesale IaaS.
This partnership allows resellers to offer their customers a customizable cloud-integrated storage solution backed by a best-of-breed, secure, multi-tenant and highly available infrastructure platform at a fraction of the cost of building it themselves. The combination of CloudArray and Cornerstone, Artisan Infrastructure's Virtual Private Data Center (vPDC) platform seamlessly and securely extends data storage to the cloud while eliminating the maintenance costs and data center overhead typically associated with traditional offsite data storage and backups.
"Companies today are embracing cloud storage at a tremendous rate as they understand how the benefits of improved economics and minimalized administration improve their bottom line," said Woodie Wallace, Director, Strategic Alliances for Artisan Infrastructure. "By working with TwinStrata to offer an on-demand platform that allows resellers and service providers to deliver their own customizable cloud infrastructure at a fraction of the cost of building it themselves, we empower them with the ability to quickly and easily meet the needs of their own customers without incurring the capital expenditures and business risk they would otherwise face."
"Artisan has taken a huge leap in simplifying the process for integrators and service providers to deliver cloud infrastructure," said Nicos Vekiarides, CEO of TwinStrata. "CloudArray complements Artisan's Cornerstone vPDC platform by creating storage services that rival traditional enterprise storage solutions in interoperability, performance and security, with the benefits of software and service-based pricing. Today, we are happy to extend all of these benefits to Artisan partners looking to leverage a ready-made infrastructure for their clients."
