CloudOne offers low cost, unlimited online storage for customer data

VANCOUVER, June 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - International managed hosting provider, PEER 1 Hosting, Inc. (TSX: PIX), today announced the launch of CloudOne Storage, a scalable cloud storage product for web hosting customers, powered by EMC(R) Atmos(TM).

Built on the best-of-breed EMC Atmos storage platform, CloudOne provides customers with flexible, pay-as-you-go online storage for data files and rich media from $0.15 per GB per month. Customers can upload, store and manage unlimited data through a control panel or via the standards compliant Application Programming Interface (API) - the web-based interface for file management and application deployment.

Existing PEER 1 Hosting customers adopting CloudOne will benefit from free bandwidth for data transfer to and from servers and storage through the globally load balanced, highly redundant SuperNetwork(TM) 10GB backbone, plus FirstCall Support(TM) providing a unified cloud solution with one support team.

As Tim Varma, Vice President of Product Development at PEER 1 Hosting comments: "APIs have enabled organizations to create an open architecture for sharing content and data between communities and applications. In this way, content that is created in one place can be dynamically posted and updated in multiple locations on the web and, in the case of CloudOne, stored in locations of their choice. Add to this the access our customers have to free bandwidth on the PEER 1 SuperNetwork and the opportunities CloudOne presents over and above its competitors are clear."

Continuing on the benefits, Varma, concludes: "Customers want universally accessible storage, but they also want to stay in control of their data and choose where they can store it as well as setting the levels of redundancy. CloudOne is engineered to overachieve against all of these requirements within a single solution and to offer customers the PEER 1 service guarantee on top. This product is another example of PEER 1 Hosting's commitment to delivering hosting services based on best-of-breed technology to our customers at the best price."
