Hosting.com Launches Cloud Storage Solutions

April 25, 2011 by  

Webmaster ToolboxDenver, CO – Hosting.com, the leading provider of cloud hosting and recovery services, today announced the availability of Network Attached Storage (NAS) to its Managed Storage solution.  Hosting.com’s Managed Storage solution features both NAS and SAN to meet the data storage and protection requirements of its enterprise customers.

The need for data storage continues to escalate as businesses replace outdated applications with sophisticated high throughput technologies, such as data archival and rich media storage. These companies are retaining data longer in response to government and industry regulations, and they are backing up even larger quantities of mission-critical data to guard against network outages and clinical disasters.  As companies struggle to handle an explosion of data, they often spread their infrastructure across unconnected, self-managed datacenters or reserve hosting providers for partial solutions.


Hosting.com solves the problem of disparate, underutilized storage infrastructures by providing integrated cloud-based storage options that contract or expand with business fluctuations.  Most Hosting.com enterprise customers have hybrid hosting solutions consisting of connected dedicated and cloud environments, and therefore require a managed storage solution that can address both sharing data between multiple servers (NAS) and transaction-intensive applications (SAN).

Adam C. Greenfield, Hosting.com Product Manager, commented, “We have more than a Petabyte of customer data under management across our storage platforms today. Enterprise customers are facing ever-growing capacity and different storage needs every day. Our new NAS platform was built to meet those needs and provide our customers instant, flexible storage.”

Hosting.com’s ability to provide custom availability and recovery solutions has attracted customers seeking to extend their current infrastructure, either hosted or internal, for business continuity, compliance and high availability requirements and to avoid the costly investments associated with traditional deployments.  One such customer is a Software-as-a-Service company providing its users with on-demand access to their data and application 24/7.  The company’s hybrid solution of cloud and dedicated servers utilizes NAS for hosting site content and end user files used by their web servers and SAN storage for a clustered Microsoft SQL database solution.  The managed storage solution is seamlessly connected to their application allowing for massive future growth without needing to incur application downtime to continue growing their business.

Craig McLellan, Hosting.com CTO, remarked, “Customers today face unprecedented storage needs both in terms of capacity and flexibility. Storage is the common foundation all solutions are built on. Our managed storage offerings allow customers to choose the solution that fits their business needs without compromising availability or adding additional competencies that distract their IT staff from providing value to their core business.”

Hosting.com recently released the 2011 Cloud Trends and Best Practices Report which found that nearly 25% of the companies surveyed are currently utilizing cloud storage with 20% growth expected in 2011.  Download the Cloud Trends Report to access valuable insight into the cloud marketplace – including consumer expectations of Cloud Computing, intended uses, obstacles, and expected timeframes for implementing cloud-based solutions.
