Zadara Storage Inc., announced today that it has achieved the AWS Outposts Ready designation, part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Ready Program. This designation recognizes that Zadara’s enterprise Storage-as-a-Service solution has demonstrated successful integration with AWS Outposts deployments. AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience.
Achieving the AWS Outposts Ready designation differentiates Zadara as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member with a product fully tested on AWS Outposts. AWS Outposts Ready products are generally available and supported for AWS customers, including clear deployment documentation for AWS Outposts. AWS Service Ready Partners have demonstrated success building products integrated with AWS services, helping AWS customers evaluate and use their technology productively, at scale and at varying levels of complexity.
“Customers are looking for better ways to store and manage their data across the enterprise as part of a comprehensive digitization initiative,” said Joshua Burgin, General Manager, AWS Outposts, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “With Zadara VPSA on AWS Outposts, customers can benefit from a comprehensive data management solution for any application in their environment, on AWS Outposts, or in AWS Regions, for a truly consistent hybrid experience.”
Customers can now get the scalability and performance of an enterprise-class storage system, fully integrated with their AWS Outposts environment. Using Zadara, they can create a true hybrid operating environment featuring streamlined data storage — including automatic data replication — by connecting their on-premises enterprise storage to AWS Outposts and to Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs) worldwide. With Zadara, customers get dedicated resources and full enterprise storage functionality — including NFS, CIFS, Active Directory, snapshots, encryption, deduplication, backups, and more — in a fully managed cloud model.
“As an AWS Service Ready provider, Zadara is proud to offer features and functions that support AWS Outposts,” said Malkit Hayun, Senior Director of Cloud Alliances at Zadara.“Our customers want flexible, high-performance, enterprise-class storage to meet their technology needs, and now we can offer them an enhanced solution that is fully integrated within businesses’ AWS Outposts environments.”
To support the seamless integration and deployment of AWS Outposts ready solutions, AWS established the AWS Outposts Ready Program to help customers identify products integrated with AWS Outposts and spend less time evaluating new tools, and more time scaling their use of products that are integrated with AWS Outposts deployments.
