New “Cold Snap” Program Lowers Data Storage Costs to $.01/GB/Month

BOSTON, MA – July 14, 2014 — / — Storiant, the leading provider of cold storage software for data centers, today announced “Cold Snap,” a program that lets data center service providers offer secure cold storage services in just 90 days. Recent research found that nearly half (47%) of CIOs pay between $.21 and $.50 per gigabyte per month for on-premises storage of “cold data” — the less frequently accessed data that makes up 85 percent of all stored information. Storiant makes it possible to offer a service-based alternative at a fraction of the cost.

“Cold storage is hot right now because companies see Amazon offering its public Glacier service for pennies per gigabyte per month,” said Yaron Naor, vice president of business development at Storiant. “Data center service providers recognize the need to offer a private cloud alternative to remain competitive, and the Cold Snap program is the answer. Cold storage is the ideal complement to primary storage services, because it is a long-term solution that serves customers year after year.”

With Storiant’s Cold Snap program, service providers can:

  • Launch cold storage services within 90 days, with data retrieval time in seconds/minutes compared to hours/days with Amazon Glacier
  • Lower data storage costs to $.01/GB/month
  • Take advantage of:
    • Special pricing available through September 30, 2014, with available payment terms
    • A dedicated support representative to accelerate implementation
    • “Drop in” hardware available through third parties (Storiant-certified bill of materials)

Storiant software is the first storage solution designed specifically for storing cold data on disk. It features:

  • Object storage for structured and unstructured data
  • Exabyte scalability
  • Management of low-cost commodity drives, including new shingled magnetic recording (SMR) disks

  • Once-per-year maintenance via sparing
  • Eighteen nines of reliability with two copies, plus immutability for compliance
