Provider of on-demand primary storage with built-in offsite backup and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), ClearSky Data, and data center and global interconnection company, Equinix, have announced their partnership. The two companies aim to extend the delivery of ClearSky’s storage and data management services on Platform Equinix. ClearSky Data and Equinix’s offerings will give organizations access to their data wherever it’s located through the use of built-in data protection.
In a press statement, Vice President of Global Business Development at Equinix, Steve Steinhilber said, “there is great synergy in our companies’ vision for digital transformation, hybrid cloud adoption, and the important data management capabilities enterprises need to aid that transformation and adoption. ClearSky’s service offering enabled by Platform Equinix will give enterprise customers a broad range of options for accessing their data, with deployment models that best suit their specific needs. Enterprises can leverage ClearSky to leave behind complex, costly and inflexible storage solutions for a single, unified and more cost-effective approach to data management that comes with the proven reliability and support Equinix customers have come to expect.”
Because Platform Equinix has 200 International Business Exchange IBX data centers across five continents, users have access in over 52 major markets. Customers new and old can now make use of Equinix’s network and interconnection capabilities, as well as ClearSky’s on-demand services.
On the new partnership, CEO of ClearSky Data, Ellen Rubin stated, “this partnership offers far more than just simple interoperability – it significantly amplifies the value of each service.
