Cleversafe, Inc. Key Developments

Cleversafe inc. and Nasuni Announce Strategic Storage Partnership

Cleversafe, Inc. and Nasuni announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership, enabling reliable, cost-effective, cloud-integrated storage for distributed organizations. With Cleversafe Dispersed Storage(R) Network (dsNet(R)) technology and Nasuni Filers, enterprises can deploy unified storage, backup and multi-site disaster recovery into a single storage system that enables centralized control, integrated backup and significant cost savings -- especially as data grows to the Petabyte-level and beyond. With this combined solution, distributed offices and mobile employees can access a single global fileshare that makes collaboration and centralized data protection possible, regardless of a user's physical location. Cleversafe's dsNet(R) object-based storage solution uses a patented, geographically dispersed erasure coding algorithm that stores data as virtualized and encrypted 'slices' that are spread across multiple independent storage nodes in a cloud. With dispersed object storage, the need for data replication and RAID is eliminated, which reduces capital and operating expenses while improving data uptime and security. This approach also enhances the availability of data through toleration of multiple, simultaneous drive, node, site and/or network failures while maintaining continuous access to data. Using Cleversafe as the primary storage pool, Nasuni Filers facilitate traditional NAS and block access to a single, master dataset shared across the world. Nasuni combines distributed access with centralized control, enabling unified access to data while simplifying infrastructure and lowering costs. Local Nasuni Filers cache frequently accessed data and provide local performance, while Cleversafe's dsNet storage - deployed across many data centers - acts as the central hub.

The Bunker Selects Cleversafe, Inc.'s Technology to Support its Ultra Secure Object Storage Cloud Service

Cleversafe, Inc. announced that The Bunker has selected Cleversafe's dsNet(R) technology to power its Ultra Secure Object Storage cloud service. The combined solution will help UK businesses solve the challenges of security and compliance in public cloud data storage while enjoying the benefits of a consumption-based cost model. Cleversafe's dsNet object-based storage solution separates metadata from object data, storing it all on one level, rather than as a hierarchy as with traditional file-based storage. This type of storage gives The Bunker customers an excellent future platform for growth, as well as the advantages of secure pay-as-you-go data storage.

MSDI Selects Cleversafe Object Storage Technology to Support Cloud Offerings

Cleversafe, Inc. announced that MSDI has selected Cleversafe's dsNet(R) technology to power its private, hybrid and public cloud offerings. Cleversafe's dsNet object-based storage solution enables MSDI to offer scalable cloud infrastructures that are easy to grow and maintain. Cleversafe's storage system is built on a shared nothing architecture that simplifies system management and enables rolling system updates that dramatically reduce downtime. Since implementing Cleversafe's technology, MSDI and its cloud customers have not seen a single IT outage and have experienced uninterrupted service. In addition to utilizing Cleversafe's technology to support its cloud offerings, MSDI uses the dsNet solution for its own backup and recovery. As the growing company continues to add businesses to its robust client list, secure data is a primary concern. Compared to replication-based storage systems -- which make full copies of information available in multiple locations -- Cleversafe's solution uses a patented, geographically dispersed erasure coding and houses data as virtualized and encrypted "slices" spread across devices and storage nodes. This method is inherently more secure than traditional methods because it would require a multi-site security breach to compromise the data.
