Working together to accelerate software-defined storage adoption across the storage industry.
Zadara™ Storage offers enterprise Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS), delivering high-performance, highly available file, block and object storage. The company's award-winning Zadara Storage Cloud delivers a common storage-as-a-service platform that can be deployed at any location (cloud, on-premise or hybrid), supporting any data type (block, file and object) and connecting to any protocol (FC, iSCSI, iSER, NFS, CIFS, S3, Swift). The patented VPSA™ Storage Array service provides flexible, enterprise SAN and NAS technology while the ZIOS™ Object Storage service delivers private, as-a-service, object storage for peta-scale primary and secondary storage. Both services provide resource isolation, exceptional data security, and management control. Zadara Storage solutions meet the most stringent Service-Level Agreements (SLAs). Zadara is available both via OPaaS (On-Premise-as-a-Service) and through a wide range of worldwide cloud and colocation providers, including value-added relationships with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Dimension Data, Equinix and others.

Leveraging cloud computing concepts, we built a new enterprise-grade storage cloud system in which multiple tenants can run VPSA or ZIOS Object Storage on the same physical machines without ever interfering with one another, delivering each user with predictable performance, full data privacy and security coupled with full elasticity.
The Zadara Storage Cloud is built upon standardized, cost-effective x86 servers and is enabled by our patented software technology that creates a virtualizing data storage resource abstraction layer. Every Storage Node is interconnected using multiple, redundant 40Gb connections using advanced iSER (RDMA) to minimize latency and dramatically improve performance.
Virtual, independent controller pairs, each access their own, distributed dedicated drives to define a user's VPSA storage array within the cloud. The virtualization and isolation of resources enables the Zadara Storage Cloud to grow to hundreds of nodes while keeping workloads isolated from one another, delivering applications with predictable performance and cloud storage customers a Quality of Service.
