(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Cirrus Tech Ltd., a Canadian web hosting company specializing in VPS, VM and cloud hosting services, announces its partnership with StarWind, a global leader in storage management and SAN software for small and mid-size businesses. Cirrus’ partnership with StarWind offers customers the opportunity to access high-availability dedicated and cloud storage platforms and help build a disaster recovery infrastructure. Now with Cirrus, even small businesses can access high-end, enterprise-level storage products and features at prices they can afford.
“Companies are increasingly turning to cloud services to gain efficiencies and respond faster to today’s changing business requirements,” says Artem Berman, Chief Executive Officer of StarWind Software. “We are pleased to combine our forces with Cirrus Tech to deliver our customers a wide range of innovative cloud services which will help their transition to a flexible and efficient shared IT infrastructure.”
Starting mid-August, Cirrus customers and VPS hosting users can deploy Starwind’s flagship product, iSCSI SAN software, for any virtualization platforms including Hyper-V, Citrix xenserver, VMware vsphere, and XEN among others, creating a fault-tolerant, fail-safe virtual environment with high availability similar to what a high-end storage product would offer, without the high-end price tag. The StarWind software offers a dedicated storage platform with a plethora of powerful features such as automated failover and failback, continuous data protection (CDP), synchronous data replications, snapshots, and thin provisioning. Cirrus’ partnership with StarWind also gives users cloud storage options for private clouds. In addition to providing the storage infrastructure, Cirrus can help consult customers that are looking to build a custom private cloud hosting environment for their business. Cirrus is also offering assistance with building disaster recovery plans.
“Every business needs to consider what would happen in the event of a disaster,” shares Cirrus CEO Ehsan Mirdamadi. “By bringing StarWind’s SAN solution to our customers, we are helping them to ease the burden of disaster recovery planning by offering powerful and affordable storage options. You never want to think of the worst, but when it comes to your sensitive data and business critical web operations, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Being safe just got that much easier for Cirrus customers.”
