Irvine, CA– June 24, 2014 – Zadara™ Storage, Inc. today announced that together with cloud consulting and managed services provider RightBrain Networks, it has enabled Realty Data Company, LLC, to deploy a massive enterprise Storage as a Service (STaaS) architecture. Designed for repository storage at Amazon Web Services (AWS), this installation typifies the greater performance, agility, scalability and cost savings possible by the right software-designed storage approaches - even at Big Data scale. Realty Data had grown to the point that its existing on-premises EMC SAN would not scale cost-effectively, and moving its 800 million+ image files to native Amazon storage options such as EBS and S3 proved problematic. The company then turned to RightBrain Networks, which helped it switch to Zadara Storage’s Virtual Private Storage Array (VPSA) and achieve its business goals at AWS without compromise.

“We were skeptical at first about an architecture going from one data center to another to pull up images, especially at our scale; but with the combination of AWS compute resource and Zadara Storage that RightBrain helped us build and deploy, we’re getting better performance than what we had from an on-premise EMC SAN, and saving at least 50% of our data center costs,” said Craig Loop, director of technology at Realty Data Corp. “Following the migration, instead of getting complaints, we actually had customers stating that they noticed a performance increase in our system. We now have flexibility and agility to try new approaches as we grow our business, without having to plan and buy the storage we need to run them.”
