LONDON and MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/23/10 -- Nimbus Technology (www.nimbustech.co.uk), a leading infrastructure hosting and cloud computing provider, today announced the launch of the Nimbus Cloud Storage Service powered by the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform. Developed by Mezeo Software (www.mezeo.com), the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform is a Web Services API-based cloud storage platform purpose-built for service providers. The Mezeo Service Provider Alliance Program offers service providers an accelerated time to market, providing complete support to deploy and monetize their cloud storage service, including branding support, training resources and marketing assistance.
The announcement was released in conjunction with Parallels Summit 2010 at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach in Florida. Mezeo is a Bronze Sponsor of the event, and is exhibiting in booth 9. The Nimbus Cloud Storage solution is hosted by the UK-based ThinkGrid, Mezeo Premier Hosting Provider, who will be speaking at the Parallels Summit.
"ThinkGrid is excited about the launch of the Nimbus cloud storage solution," said David Pratt, COO at ThinkGrid. "Cloud storage will allow Nimbus customers to focus on their core business, and be agile and competitive. Most importantly, they can do so with the confidence that their files are available and secure."
With the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform, Nimbus Cloud Storage offers advanced file sharing and collaboration, content tagging and unparalleled access to stored files via WebDAV, Windows desktop, a rich Web browser client, as well as BlackBerry® and Windows Mobile® smartphone clients. The Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform offers end-to-end security, with SSL encryption of data as it is being transmitted and 256-bit AES encryption for files "at rest" on the server. The new Mezeo Sync Application allows users to select which folders they want to sync between the cloud and Windows desktop.
"More and more of our clients are looking for a highly flexible, secure and scalable cloud storage solution. We chose to partner with Mezeo because they performed best in our technical evaluation and provide users with true anywhere/anytime access to files with well-designed APIs for platform extensibility," said Simon Rutt, Managing Director of Nimbus Technology. "Nimbus Cloud Storage will be especially attractive for our SME customers as they can gain all the benefits of cloud storage without having to think about the technology behind it."
Nimbus Cloud Storage offers pay-as-you-go pricing and the ability to scale up and scale down as demand necessitates without having to add costly infrastructure. It allows customers to reduce costs and eliminate the burden of management, giving them the freedom to focus on their core activities.
"Cloud storage is ideal for the SME customer because it offers affordable, secure and easily accessible storage on a pay-for-use basis," said Steve Lesem, CEO of Mezeo Software. "With the new Mezeo Sync Application, Nimbus customers will have the extra confidence that they always have access to the right document.
