Houston, Texas – (The Hosting News) – May 22, 2009 – On-demand hosting services and virtual data center provider for the small to medium enterprise (SME), SoftLayer Technologies introduced its new CloudLayer Storage recently, powered by the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform, as a Premier Hosting Partner.
Lance Crosby, CEO of SoftLayer explained, ”We deployed the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform because it was purpose-built to meet the needs of service providers. Mezeo’s advanced REST-style Web Services APIs made it easy for our development team to integrate advanced storing, managing, sharing and collaboration capabilities into our CloudLayer Storage service, and their white-labeled access clients enabled our customers with anytime, anywhere access to their files stored in CloudLayer Storage.”
CloudLayer Storage utilizes SoftLayer’s advanced StorageLayer solution, which integrates industry-leading technologies — including FTP/NAS, iSCSI, EVault, and others — into a unified storage environment for the ultimate level of security and reliability. Use of Mezeo’s platform ensures that the files are always secure and encrypted — SSL encryption in transit and 256 bit AES encryption at rest. User access is controlled using role based permissions and share expirations. Mezeo’s white labeled Access Clients for Windows Desktops and leading mobile smartphones — BlackBerry, iPhone, and Windows Mobile devices, enable ubiquitous access to files on CloudLayer Storage. In addition, these files can be accessed via WebDAV or a Web 2.0 browser interface.
Shayan Amindani, Business Development Executive at VectorLevel LLC, a California-based web hosting company noted, ”I am pleasantly surprised by SoftLayer’s new CloudLayer service. The speeds are superb and the prices are excellent.”
Steve Lesem, President and CEO of Mezeo offered, ”SoftLayer has done everything right throughout the deployment process and the result is that CloudLayer Storage provides best-of-class capabilities that businesses and consumers want right now. It is exciting to see the market embrace the extraordinary value of Mezeo’s deployable cloud storage platform as deployed by SoftLayer. The Mezeo cloud storage solutions can be quickly and cost effectively integrated into an IT service provider’s offerings.”
