UK’s Leading Data Storage Integrator to Offer Managed, Hosted Data Services that Rival Public Cloud Offerings

CHICAGO, IL – April 28, 2015 — / — Cleversafe, Inc., the web-scale storage market share leader, today announced that Solid State Solutions (S3), one of the UK’s leading data storage integrators, has selected Cleversafe’s platform to expand its managed, hosted data storage services. The platform allows S3 to now provide businesses with a competitive data storage solution that is more cost efficient and easier to deploy than public cloud providers.

“Working with Cleversafe, we are uniquely positioned to grow our business and emerge as a strong, competitive player in the data storage space, one that is superior to public cloud offerings,” said Mark Smith, technical director at S3. “We’re now able to provide customers with a multi-petabyte storage solution that doesn’t increase in price or decrease in reliability as it grows, and can be easily deployed and managed without additional staff or training.”

Cleversafe’s platform has allowed S3 to provide storage services with data reliability in excess of nine nines (99.9999999%) whilst competing with public cloud pricing. The simple pricing model is particularly attractive to potential S3 customers in hyper-growth environments, including those in life sciences and research, financial services and higher education, among other industries.

The Cleversafe platform also enables S3 to provide customers with rich data and insights such as performance reports, capacity consumption reports and technology updates that are not typically available from public cloud offerings. Additionally, the platform is easy for both S3 and its customers to manage. According to Mark Smith, S3 benefits from an efficient and responsive Cleversafe team that allows S3 to, in turn, be equally as responsive to its own customers.

“It’s a privilege to work with one of the UK’s longest standing storage integrators as they continue to emerge as a leading managed service provider,” said Russ Kennedy, senior vice president of Product Strategy and Customer Solutions at Cleversafe. “This solution will not only attract a new type of customer, but will also enable S3 to successfully compete in the web-scale storage space.”
