ScaleUp has been seeking a technology solution that could offer a hybrid storage cloud solution, a combination of on-premise private storage & hosted cloud storage, much like our Hybrid Cloud Offering. We found this potential with the Scality solution.
Paris, France (PRWEB) June 30, 2010
Scality, the developer of massively-scalable storage software for email and cloud storage applications today announced that leading German Cloud Computing provider ScaleUp has selected Scality cloud storage software to provide an Amazon S3 compatible Cloud Storage solution for its German customers.
Christoph Streit, ScaleUp's CTO & Co-Founder stated, “As a cloud computing provider based in Germany, we have seen a huge demand from our customers for a scalable storage solution also based in Germany. According to German & EU Data Protection Directives, data for EU customers must remain in the EU. While services such as AWS & Rackspace Cloud offered EU-based data centers, this still did not ease the concerns of most German customers.
ScaleUp has also been seeking a technology solution that could offer a hybrid storage cloud solution, a combination of on-premise private storage & hosted cloud storage, much like our Hybrid Cloud Offering. We found this potential with the Scality solution. We expect the Scality technology to provide the foundation for a highly secure storage solution – while supporting our strategy of a lower cost offering than that of even Amazon S3, for a German-Based solution – only 0.10 € / GB / MO” added Streit.
Serge Dugas, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for Scality commented,
“We are excited to be working with ScaleUp who are moving aggressively to offer a compelling Cloud Storage service at price point for German-based, EU compliant cloud storage solutions that is lower than Amazon’s. “Our Amazon S3 compatible API enables ScaleUp to offer a secure on-premise hybrid private storage & hosted cloud storage solution. Scality's RING storage software is simple to deploy, requires minimal hardware investment and will enable ScaleUp to expand storage capacity rapidly with demand, while retaining their low cost Gigabyte pricing strategy," added Dugas.
ScaleUp Technologies launched in 2009 as the first cloud computing provider based in Germany – with cloud grids operating in Hamburg & Berlin. ScaleUp provides public, private & hybrid cloud computing solutions to technology companies & small/medium enterprises throughout Germany & Europe.
