Key Information Systems, Inc. (KeyInfo), an Agoura Hills, Calif.-based cloud and infrastructure solutions provider, has unveiled its new Object Storage as a Service (STaaS) offering. Partnering with Switch, KeyInfo’s STaaS capabilities are designed to give customers of Switch’s SUPERNAP and other data centers efficient object storage at a flat rate, decreasing infrastructure costs as compared to most public cloud subscriptions.
“Our clients manage hundreds of terabytes of data, but usually only a fraction of that is active. Why should they pay multiple times for redundancy, accessibility and performance when object storage technology allows them to efficiently manage their needs for hot and cold data?” said Clayton Weise, director of cloud services for Key Information Systems. “With KeyInfo’s model, we’re automatically giving clients multi-region replication and encryption at no additional cost, helping them save money and consume fewer resources while retaining compliance.”
Replicated across Switch’s Reno, Las Vegas and Grand Rapids locations, the KeyInfo STaaS offering also uses Panzura file storage technology as means of ensuring high performance and availability for enterprise clients.
The new STaaS technology is expected to strengthen the resiliency of redundancy with secure encryption without the extra costs associated with secondary infrastructures.
