STERLING, Va., Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- IceWEB, Inc.™ (OTCBB: IWEB), www.IceWEB.com, a leading provider of Unified Data Storage and building blocks for cloud storage networks, announced today that it has received an order from a New York City-based cloud computing services company. The Model 6000-HR will be deployed in their cloud-based, VMware server environment.
According to market research firm Gartner, Inc., the market for disk storage in cloud computing deployments is forecast to grow from $267.4 million in 2010 to $1.45 billion in 2015 and is on pace to total $417.3 in 2011, a 56% increase from 2010.
"Cloud computing providers from all over the nation are showing ever-increasing interest in our high-end storage platforms," said Mr. Tim McNamee, IceWEB VP of Sales and Marketing. "IceWEB has maintained a serious presence in the cloud computing space for a number of years and it is now starting to pay real dividends. Many cloud providers are in the early build-out stage which is why this segment of the market is growing exponentially faster than the overall market."
The IceWEB Model 6000-HR is a highly-redundant, dual-controller configuration that scales to 224 TBs with affordable disk shelves, saving the customer the expense of adding controllers to just add capacity. The 6000-HR supports ENT SAS and MDL SAS drives. Because IceWEB's VMware integrated, unified data storage systems support both file and block data, cloud computing providers are able to dramatically reduce the amount of hardware and physical storage they need to support a growing and diverse customer base.
