BOSTON, MA – August 27, 2015 — / — ClearSky Data, provider of a global storage network that manages the entire enterprise data lifecycle, today announced it will participate, along with its customer Xtium, in a VMware-led session at VMworld 2015 to discuss a new breakthrough in storage. The session will provide an overview and update on vSphere Virtual Volumes, including how to solve challenges in managing virtual machines (VMs) in external storage by providing finer control at the VM level, streamlining storage operations and providing flexibility of choice. As guest speakers, ClearSky Data and Xtium executives will highlight the potential of using vSphere Virtual Volumes as a service to achieve instant data portability and dramatic cost of ownership savings.

As guest speakers, Vekiarides and Vogel will discuss how the ClearSky service and vSphere Virtual Volumes can enable distributed storage with cloud economics and on-demand, pay-as-you-go capabilities.

“Our customers want agile, scalable, budget-conscious storage solutions, and the ClearSky service is a fantastic way to leverage VVOLs to meet that demand,” said Tim Vogel, chief technology officer of Xtium, a managed cloud hosting, online backup and virtual disaster recovery services company. “Through the ClearSky service and vSphere Virtual Volumes, we’re giving our customers the next big thing in enterprise storage at a savings of 60 to 70 percent over traditional physical storage arrays.”
