Breaking the Sound Barrier in Public Cloud Storage Value
LOS ANGELES, CA – Oct. 22, 2013 — /BackupReview.info/ — DreamHost®, a global leader in Web hosting and cloud services, today announced new usability features and even more affordable utility pricing and packages for DreamObjects™, its highly scalable, resilient, and cost-effective cloud storage service for Internet entrepreneurs and developers. DreamObjects can be used for a wide range of popular cloud storage applications including web and application file serving, web site backup and disaster recovery, as well as for persistent personal or business backup of photos, videos and important files.
DreamObjects now offers full support for custom CNAME records, enabling customers to use their domain name of choice to link to objects stored in DreamObjects, rather than the domain name assigned by the DreamObjects system. DreamHost is a top 20 global domain registrar, so customers can easily register a new domain or manage their current domain to create new CNAME records and link them to their files in DreamObjects, all from the best-in-class DreamHost panel.
The second major feature launched enables upload of files to DreamObjects directly from the DreamHost panel using any web browser. This feature makes it easy for users to quickly upload files while working in the panel, providing an alternative option for upload in addition to the powerful desktop upload utilities from partners that DreamHost has partnered with.
In partnership with Inktank, DreamHost has optimized the Ceph storage software behind DreamObjects to deliver greater cost and operating efficiency. Beginning immediately, DreamHost is passing on those cost savings to customers of DreamObjects by reducing utility pricing from 7¢ per GB/mth to 5¢ per GB/mth of storage used. Bandwidth costs continue to come down worldwide, so DreamObjects’ data transfer prices are also reduced from 7¢ per GB/mth to 5¢ per GB/mth, making DreamObjects one of the lowest cost per GB utility storage clouds in production. Even lower per GB pricing is available for customers with more predictable storage needs, with monthly pre-paid storage plans available for between 5¢ and less than 2¢ per GB per month, depending on the number of GB’s or TB’s needed.
DreamObjects is compatible with Amazon™ S3 and OpenStack Storage-based APIs, so stored files or data can be migrated easily between other object storage services and DreamObjects, or vice versa, ensuring that customers choose and use DreamObjects because of great value and performance not because they are locked-in by contract or technology. New customers can also sign up a 30-day free trial and get 100GB storage and 100GB data transfer out free, so they can try before they buy.
DreamObjects is an ideal cloud storage service for individual users, small businesses, web designers, and developers. Popular uses for DreamObjects range from personal and business backup of documents, files, photos and videos using powerful desktop clients like ExpanDrive™, CloudBerry™Backup, Cyberduck™, and CrossFTP™, to web and mobile application storage and web site backup. Application developers leverage DreamObjects to store and serve images, videos and web application files separately from their web hosting server and database, accelerating performance and reliability of applications using modern approaches to architecting web applications. Web site owners can create backups and archive them to DreamObjects, either through an automated script or a plug-in (i.e., WordPress), and individuals wanting to store content accessible via the Internet can take advantage of disaster recovery capabilities by storing copies of files or data in DreamObjects, to protect against damage to or loss of their local backup drive.
“In pursuing our vision for accessible and affordable cloud storage and compute services for entrepreneurs and developers worldwide, we relentlessly focus on customer requirements that empower new and innovative uses of these platforms, and deliver meaningful value and performance for customers,” said Simon Anderson, CEO of DreamHost. “Our introduction of CNAME support, easy uploads from the DreamHost panel, and engineering-driven cost savings for DreamObjects are all part of our drive to enable individuals and businesses worldwide to build their dream project or business, and have fun while doing it.”
