DC customers

I spent yesterday visiting customers in DC and Northern Virginia , and then went up to Baltimore to have dinner with another customer and friend. Our customers recognize that paying primary storage support prices for secondary and tertiary storage requirements is kind of crazy. Savvy customers also understand that upgrading secondary storage just because your OEM is upgrading their product line does not make financial sense. With budgets tight, our business continues to grow as customers look for a reliable , full service, enterprise storage support solution.


NewPush Selects Zerowait’s SimplStor Storage Controllers and Arrays for New, Low Cost, Off-Site and Disaster Recovery Storage Offering

Offers Private, Managed Storage for Less Than Public Cloud Pricing

Denver, CO (Vocus/PRWEB) December 09, 2010

NewPush announced today a new, low-cost, managed remote storage program ideal for those requiring over 100TB of storage. Balazs Nagy, Chief Architect at NewPush stated "Starting at only $75 per terabyte (TB) per month, this program includes all expenses - space, power, cooling, firewall, and bandwidth with 1 terabyte of transfer for each terabyte of storage. Zerowait SimplStor storage controllers and Arrays offer both low cost and high reliability - key requirements for our new program. Our larger customers have been looking for a cost effective alternative to public cloud storage. SimplStor allows us to provide private managed storage at prices that beat the public cloud offerings. And having worked with Zerowait for years for support of our NetApp products, we know we can depend on their high availability service to provide the uptime our clients demand. Because SimplStor is built on open technology, we can customize the SimplStor storage controllers with the right software tailored to specifically satisfy the most demanding customer needs."

Mike Linett, President of Zerowait added: "We're excited to be part of this new offering from NewPush. We've been working with them for a number of years, providing NetApp systems, architecture and support to help the growing NewPush SAN infrastructure. When NewPush moved into their new data center in Denver, they came to us with requirements for a new high capacity offering. We showed them how SimplStor met these requirements for reliability, density, and low cost of operation, allowing NewPush to offer the pricing needed to compete in this segment. We’re excited that we now have a partner we can refer our clients to when they would prefer to have storage as a utility expense, rather than a capital outlay."

This new offering is scalable from 100TB to over 1PB, and offers the security of private storage vs. a public storage cloud. NewPush also offers remote management for clients that prefer, or need, to keep their data in house in addition to off-site storage starting at 1 TB. Zerowait, in addition to the SimplStor product line, offers NetApp hardware, systems with transferable licenses and post warranty support. Please contact the respective companies for further information.
