DENVER, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 05/17/12 -- ViaWest, one of the largest privately-held data center, cloud computing and managed service providers in North America, today announces the addition of a Network Attached Storage (NAS) product, delivered in partnership with industry leader, NetApp. Addressing the need of its clients for flexible storage options, ViaWest launches this new NAS product as part of its KINECTed Storage family, which also includes a high-performance Storage Area Network (SAN) offering.
ViaWest introduces its NAS offering to deliver increasing flexibility and choice for its customers. The NAS solution delivers simplified data and infrastructure management, coupled with improved storage efficiency. For customers who seek a powerful storage solution for basic web applications, file-based interactions and more static data volumes, the KINECTed Storage NAS platform is a flexible, affordable offering that delivers built-in support for Ethernet attached storage to enable file sharing across Windows, Linux and UNIX environments.
"We're expanding our storage portfolio because efficiency and rapid access to data is critical to help our customers compete in today's dynamic marketplace," explains Jason Carolan, Chief Technology Officer for ViaWest. "Our customers need a wide range of storage options along with flexible price points and performance characteristics for today's growing data. We are proud to offer our new NAS solution with our partner, NetApp, a company offering innovative, best-of-breed storage technology and our shared commitment to putting the customer first."
"NetApp designed its storage solutions portfolio to enable clients and service providers to optimize their IT architectures to achieve flexible, efficient and highly-available deployments," states Chris Morgan, Senior Director, Emerging Channels for NetApp. "ViaWest's in-house engineering teams designed their KINECTed Storage portfolio using NetApp storage and data management which ensures their clients have a variety of options with which to grow their business."
