  • Flexible Consumption Model: MSPs can leverage an existing data center for high-performance elastic cloud services with zero CapEx cost burden.
  • Edge Cloud Anywhere: Provide low-latency edge services leveraging your existing infrastructure.
  • Data Privacy and Security: Includes click-to-provision options for dedicated storage resources for users that require physical isolation for drives and storage controller level.

In a press statement, Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara, said, “we believe MSPs of any size should be able to offer their own competitive on-demand private cloud without the large upfront CapEx investment traditionally required. The NeoKarm technology seamlessly integrates with our storage solution and offers a vastly improved performance for our customers and partners. I am thrilled to welcome the NeoKarm team to Zadara.”
