SwiftStack and VeriStor Partner to Provide Cost Efficient Enterprise Cloud Infrastructures

SAN FRANCISCO & ATLANTA — SwiftStack, the leader in a new breed of object storage, today announced it has partnered with VeriStor, an advanced IT solutions provider specializing in virtual infrastructure and enterprise private, public and hybrid cloud services and solutions. By integrating SwiftStack’s object storage into its enterprise cloud services portfolio, VeriStor is expanding its offerings for easy-to-consume storage with ultra-simplified cloud management that scales seamlessly across multiple data centers.

The customer adoption of object storage is rising with IDC predicting that it will be a $28.3 billion market by 2018. Driving this growth is an overwhelming desire among businesses for a software-centric approach to storage, one that offers the cost-effective scalability of the cloud and avoids vendor and hardware lock-in.

Responding to an increasing need from its medium to large enterprise customers for greater storage agility and efficiency, VeriStor is adding SwiftStack, which is built on an open source engine, to its storage portfolio. This will provide VeriStor customers with software-based enterprise-ready storage that delivers simplicity, pay-as-you-grow licensing and massive scale independent of hardware.

“One of the biggest challenges we’re seeing is the ability for customers to effectively manage both application growth and petabytes of data,” said Don Jaworski, CEO of SwiftStack. “With this new partnership, VeriStor will be able to offer their customers infrastructure for data protection across multiple sites. Especially considering VeriStor’s strong relationship with Commvault, the ability to offer Commvault’s data and information management paired with SwiftStack as software-defined storage for backup data presents customers with an extremely valuable package.”

“We take pride in the fact that our customers receive the best software solutions and services possible, and adding SwiftStack to our portfolio of offerings was an easy decision to make,” said Ashby Lincoln, President and CEO Of VeriStor. “SwiftStack’s Object Storage software allows us to help our customers effectively overcome diverse storage demands, simplifying their management approach in the process.”
