SwiftStack Partners With Redapt to Deliver Private Cloud Storage at Petabyte Scale

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — SwiftStack, the leader in object storage for the enterprise, today announced a strategic partnership with Redapt, a global systems integrator specializing in data center infrastructure and cloud engineering services. The partnership enhances Redapt’s already robust portfolio of data center infrastructure and cloud solutions by adding SwiftStack’s object storage platform to its SuperDense Storage solution, ultimately lowering total cost of ownership (TCO) and increasing storage scalability and flexibility for Redapt’s customers.

Redapt’s SuperDense Storage drives faster performance for information storage and retrieval across cloud and on-premise data centers. With the expanding amount of data companies are collecting daily, Redapt was seeking to expand its capabilities to offer customers more flexibility, scalability and cost-effective storage. Integrating SwiftStack’s object storage capabilities with Redapt’s SuperDense Storage solution creates one of the most cost-effective and scalable private storage clouds on the market.

“Deploying petabyte-scale storage on traditional SAN or NAS hardware is difficult to manage and extremely costly,” said Jeff Dickey, Chief Innovation Officer of Redapt. “By combining SwiftStack’s flexible and easy-to-use object storage system with the high-density foundation of our SuperDense Storage enclosures, our customers can now expand their data centers at an affordable TCO. This partnership enables SwiftStack and Redapt to give our customers a complete object storage solution that allows them to move toward closer toward a platform-as-a-service model.”

According to a 2013 IDC report, the file and object storage market will grow by 24.5% annually through 2017. Traditional archive systems and public cloud offerings are expensive, slow and fail to scale as data grows. Object storage gives businesses, especially those in industries with massive amounts of data, a simple, easy-to-use and flexible storage solution that helps lower TCO. SwiftStack’s object storage capabilities combined with Redapt’s SuperDense Storage provide a complete petabyte-scale enterprise storage solution, far exceeding the capacity of both internal server storage and scaled-out SAN or NAS hardware.

“Maintaining an agile, low-cost data center is challenging, especially when businesses are faced with an explosion of unstructured data, and customers requiring access to that data from any device anywhere. SwiftStack’s mission is to help these organizations face this challenge by bringing them a storage platform that is simple to manage, massively scalable, and accessible through any application cost effectively. This alliance with Redapt helps us do just that,” said Don Jaworski, CEO of SwiftStack. “Our partnership with Redapt gives customers the simplicity and low TCO they have been missing in their legacy storage architectures, as well as the enterprise-class reliability they require.”
