Storiant Announces Storiant Link; Removes Barriers to Object Storage

New Solution Links Software Applications to Storiant Object Storage Software With a Common NAS Interface; Total Solution Reduces the Cost of Data Storage to $.01/GB/Month (TCO)

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2014) - Storiant, a provider of object storage software for private clouds, today announced Storiant Link, a Network Attached Storage (NAS) interface that uses common NFS and CIFS protocols. With Storiant Link, organizations that have not yet implemented object storage can still realize its advantages -- including Storiant's low TCO ($.01/GB/month), exabyte scalability, SEC 17a-4(f) compliance and suitability for unstructured data.

For many organizations, the promise of object storage has been out of reach because mission-critical software applications were not designed for it, requiring custom integration that is costly and time consuming. Storiant Link eliminates this barrier.

"Our customers often have hundreds of software applications and millions of dollars of investments in data center technologies. With this software, we're providing a bridge from their existing infrastructures to a new generation of storage solutions," said Jeff Flowers, CEO and co-founder of Storiant. "Using Storiant Link, companies can immediately supplement existing solutions with on-premises cloud storage that is one-third the cost of Amazon S3."

Storiant Link connects enterprises with all the features of Storiant's long-term storage software:

  • Object storage software for private clouds - ideal for unstructured data
  • Lowest total cost of ownership ($.01/GB/month)
  • Exabyte scalability
  • Eighteen nines of reliability with two copies
  • SEC 17a-4(f) compliant
  • Choice of application interfaces
    • NFS/CIFS (via Storiant Link)
    • REST interfaces - Swift, S3
    • Client library - Java/Python/.NET

Flowers continues, "For companies with exponential data growth -- particularly storage service providers and those in financial services -- the scalability, compliance and cost savings made possible by object storage can't wait. Storiant Link makes it possible."
