(The Hosting News) – Connectria Hosting, a global managed hosting company, today announced the availability of Connectria Cloud Storage, a secure, highly reliable, and inexpensive storage service that’s accessible over the Internet.
Connectria Cloud Storage is an on-demand service which provides the ability to scale up or down according to storage needs. Able to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web, Connectria Cloud Storage is designed for companies of all sizes; whether you’re a software developer looking for storage of bulk, unstructured data, an enterprise in need of external storage and backup, or a department searching for centralized, secure data store for file sharing.
Connectria Cloud Storage is compatible with Amazon S3® and is designed to deliver a more secure and reliable solution at a lower price point. It utilizes an Amazon S3® Compatible Application Programming Interface (API) that’s designed to work with any tool or software program that works with Amazon S3®. This means that current Amazon S3® customers can quickly and seamlessly migrate their data to Connectria Cloud Storage.
Connectria Cloud Storage provides several advantages over Amazon S3® and other cloud storage solutions:
- Connectria Cloud Storage is built on a proven architecture that’s inherently reliable. All data within Connectria Cloud Storage is automatically written on three (3) separate disks within three (3) separate servers within the cloud, thus protecting data from hardware failures. So should one node fail, the remaining nodes will ensure the integrity of the transaction and data.
- Connectria Cloud Storage is a highly secure solution, ideal for those with audit or compliance needs for HIPAA Compliance, SOX Compliance, PCI Compliance, SAS 70 Compliance, or SSAE 16 Compliance. All data is securely stored within Connectria’s SAS 70 Type II Certified data centers and, unlike other providers, our unique architecture ensures that we (and you) always know where your data is stored.
- Starting as low as $14.99/month for 100GB storage and data transfer, Connectria Cloud Storage is an affordable option with a simplified pricing model. There are no complex transaction fees (PUT, COPY, POST, GET, DELETE or LIST Requests). You are only charged for storage and internet transfer, at costs lower than Amazon S3®, particularly as your data storage needs grow.
- Unlike other providers with limited or no “human” support, Connectria’s expert support staff is available 24×7 to address customer needs.
“We are delighted to announce the availability of Connectria Cloud Storage,” noted Rich Waidmann, Connectria President and CEO. “It’s quick, easy and affordable, with costs that are a fraction of the price of SAN, NAS or data backup solutions. We believe Connectria Cloud Storage is an excellent complement to our current hosting services and a compelling alternative to Amazon S3®.”
