Rakuten Mobile Partners with Zadara to Provide Broad Storage Solutions for Its Fully Virtualized Mobile Network

Zadara Provides Rakuten Mobile Multi-Tenant and Hybrid Infrastructure Deployment Capabilities and Incomparable Scalability

Rakuten Mobile selected Zadara to offer a broad, flexible, cloud-based storage solution. Zadara provides network storage in the form of a large grid, where disk capacity would not be stranded in one storage array when it was needed for another. Scaling storage for a first-of-its-kind cloud-native mobile network – launched in record time – is a noteworthy achievement and provides a model for future applications.

In one platform, Zadara provides for Rakuten Mobile’s first fully virtualized mobile all three storage types and related protocols, including block storage (iSCSI, FC), file storage (NFS, CIFS/SMB) and object storage (S3 & Swift). 

With Zadara’s unique storage-as-a-service model, and native support for RESTful API and Kubernetes orchestration, Rakuten Mobile’s storage needs are fully managed by Zadara’s expert 24×7 support to reduce technology and operational risk and burdens. 

Rakuten is a highly innovative multi-national company, achieving massive growth. When Rakuten Mobile set out to develop a new mobile offering that dramatically improves service and competitive pricing, they needed to think out the box and find an innovative approach to storage that could deliver on their brand promise.
