Coraid EtherDrive ZX Appliance Wins Gold Stevie Award in 2014 American Business Awards

REDWOOD CITY, CA – October 28, 2014 — / — Coraid®, a leading storage solutions vendor for public cloud service providers and large enterprise private clouds was presented with a Gold Stevie® Award in the Best New Product category in Storage Hardware for their EtherDrive ZX at the 12th Annual American Business AwardsSM.

The Coraid ZX series provides a high-performance file system that can grow to petabyte+ environments and offers both simplicity and flexibility.

Highlights of the ZX storage solution include:

· Utilizing a scalable drive pool of SSDs and HDDs, the EtherDrive ZX provides a Hybrid Storage environment for applications that require low latency and/or high throughput.

· Leveraging a shared pool of elastic storage, the EtherDrive ZX protects sensitive data and maximizes storage efficiency for public and private clouds. Administrators can easily deploy a pool of storage within minutes, which can then be carved up and used by any number of different hypervisors, applications, and file systems.

· Scaling a ZX-based storage system is as simple as adding more EtherDrive SRX shelves for capacity or additional ZX appliances for virtualized data services. The use of Layer 2 Ethernet to connect storage shelves to Coraid ZX appliances obviates the need for complex, error-prone setup, configuration and multi-pathing and deploy new capacity anywhere on the Ethernet network, whether in a different rack, different building or different city – overcoming the distance limitations of legacy architectures.

· By using the rich set of storage features that ZX offers – such as remote replication, snapshots and clones, compression, and thin provisioning – public and private cloud providers can build highly efficient and flexible file storage systems.
