SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Zadara™ Storage, the innovator in cloud block storage that brought Private Storage to the Public Cloud via Amazon Web Services, Rackspace, and Dimension Data, announced today their latest storage industry break-through: Zadara's cloud block storage and solutions suite is available to MongoDB users in Public Clouds.
This storage breakthrough allows MongoDB users to take advantage of the power and economics of the cloud while gaining unprecedented reliability, control, and security for off-premise MongoDB instances. Administrators, developers, and other IT professionals can maintain full command of their data, using familiar controls, and at a fraction of the cost of on-premise solutions.
With the availability of the Zadara solution suite and Zadara cloud block storage, MongoDB users can soon have unlimited, zero-impact snapshots--instantly and easily creating recovery points without performance degradation; consistency groups for easy snapshots across volumes--creating synchronized snapshots of multiple volumes with a single command; and increased performance and speed by individually optimizing the performance of each volume (e.g., setting up a sequential-write optimized volume for crash recovery logs).
"Databases are dependent on storage for performance, and MongoDB is no different," says Nelson Nahum, CEO and co-founder of Zadara Storage. "What Zadara provides MongoDB users is the ability to achieve higher levels of performance, reliability and security than previously available in a public cloud environment."
"Zadara Storage and its Virtual Private Storage Arrays™ address three common impediments to the adoption of public cloud for deployment of critical applications: security, performance, and support for block storage...," asserts Lori MacVittie, Principal Analyst at Rishidot, Cloud Analyst Group. "In particular, the support for block storage enables… database systems to be deployed in the cloud, clearing a significant hurdle for organizations attempting to migrate applications dependent on those databases."
Zadara's software-only solution for Cloud Block Storage paves the way for the next generation of Enterprise-class Storage-as-a-Service. The Cloud is now MongoDB ready for critical applications with Zadara's Cloud Block Storage.
From now until December 31st Zadara is offering free trials and a discounted SSD bundle for MongoDB customers on the cloud of their choice. Contact Doug Jury, VP of Sales at Zadara Storage, for more details: firstname.lastname@example.org or (505) 377-0880.
