NATICK, Mass., Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TwinStrata, Inc., the leading innovator of cloud-based data storage, backup and disaster recovery solutions, today announced that customers can now purchase both Google Cloud Storage and TwinStrata CloudArray® through a single subscription-based bundle. CloudArray Subscription delivers both management simplicity and payment flexibility to resource-strapped IT organizations and complements existing "bring-your-own-cloud" options.
"Expanding our global storage strategy to include the cloud makes a lot of sense from both a financial and a maintenance perspective," said Jerry Bogart, Infrastructure Manager, at ChemPoint.com. "However, we really needed a solution that was simple to buy, simple to implement and simple to maintain. We found this with the TwinStrata CloudArray Subscription – we get easy, secure access to unlimited cloud storage for each of our offices globally without having to deal with multiple vendors or big upfront costs."
Designed to address the needs of both small and large organizations, CloudArray Subscription delivers accessibility, security, performance and simplicity, enabling organizations to support multiple concurrent use cases and seamlessly use cloud storage as another tier of storage. Already organizations such as ChemPoint.com and CoreIP Solutions have begun using CloudArray Subscription.
In addition to obtaining a robust storage infrastructure, premium support, cloud snapshots and multi-tenant capabilities, customers of the new offering get tiered pay-as-you-go pricing and access to CloudArray software or hardware cloud storage gateways for the same flat monthly rate, without upcharges for bandwidth usage or other variable fees.
"Our customers turn to TwinStrata because we make cloud storage easy, painless and worry-free," said Nicos Vekiarides, CEO of TwinStrata. "The introduction of CloudArray Subscription builds further on our vision. Now we can accommodate you no matter how you want to buy cloud storage – as a complete offering or by bringing your own cloud – through a monthly subscription or a perpetual license – ultimately giving you peace of mind."

The CloudArray Subscription is offered in addition to TwinStrata's perpetual license cloud storage gateways. With a starting price of just $0.19/GB, CloudArray Subscription is available now and includes both Google Cloud Storage and TwinStrata's software and/or hardware gateways.
