OpSource and Mezeo Secure Cloud Storage

Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform Offered as a Complementary Service for OpSource Cloud Users, Speeding Enterprise Adoption

OpSource at Cloud Expo

Mezeo Software (www.mezeo.com) and OpSource today announced that OpSource Cloud will offer the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform, enabling OpSource Cloud users to enjoy online sign-up and immediate provisioning of cloud storage service, speeding enterprises’ cloud deployment and offering flexible, secure storage options to help ISVs differentiate themselves. OpSource Cloud, which combines the availability, flexibility and community of the public cloud with the security, performance and control that the enterprise demands, is in public Beta and available for on-line purchase by the hour from www.OpsourceCloud.net. The Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform will be available to OpSource Cloud users in the first quarter of 2010.

“Cloud Storage is one of the key elements of Infrastructure-as-a-Service and one of the fastest growing uses of the cloud,” said Treb Ryan, CEO, OpSource. “Mezeo provides the security, performance and advanced functionality to address the Cloud Storage requirements of both our Software-as-a-Service ISV and Enterprise clients. We are pleased to bring this important complementary service to our customers.”

There are a number of OpSource Cloud use scenarios in which dependable, secure storage access can make a true business difference. For example, small to medium business users can avoid the costs of investing and managing expensive file servers or VPN access to centrally stored data. With a minimal investment, users can keep business critical files safe and disaster proof, and everyone has the ability to access, share and collaborate. In addition, many SaaS and ISV providers are in need of a Cloud Storage solution for their SaaS application, and the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform will enable them to enhance their offerings with additional capabilities; including store and retrieve, file sharing and collaboration, hierarchical and tag-based organizational structures and native multi-device client access.

In addition, to differentiate themselves, Service Providers want to offer customers a variety of advanced Cloud Storage services such as backup, cost, geo-location and outstanding performance. OpSource Cloud, combined with the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform, will offer Service Providers the flexibility to add advanced features as well as to integrate with their existing service offerings.

“Hosting providers focused on building new cloud offerings are quickly realizing that the true value of the applications and the compute power is achieved via the dynamic and frictionless provisioning of data and its subsequent ease of access,” said Antonio Piraino, Director, Hosting & Cloud Services for Tier 1 Research. “Managed service providers need to implement flexible interfaces for the management of stored data, making the cloud services as agile and versatile as the compute resources themselves. We expect cloud storage to continue its upward trend in the new year.”

The Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform is a software-only, deployable solution with REST Web Services APIs for programmatic access to storage. Mezeo’s integrated security features include Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption for data in motion and 256-bit AES encryption for data at rest, ensuring maximum protection. With Mezeo, application developers and Enterprises will be able to securely access their OpSource Cloud Storage via REST Web Services APIs, WebDAV and other methods with a pay-for-use financial model; bringing great flexibility, security and ease to Cloud Storage adoption.

“We are excited by OpSource’s selection of Mezeo for the Cloud Storage component of OpSource Cloud,” said Steve Lesem, President and CEO, Mezeo Software. “OpSource’s leadership in the cloud space and their keen sense of the requirements for a successful Cloud Storage service offering further validates that the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform is a perfect fit for Service Providers who wish to quickly and cost-effectively enter the Cloud Storage services market under their own brand.” Organizations seeking the flexibility, security and scalability of Cloud Storage can now do so easily and economically, using their own hosted and branded Cloud Storage offering powered by the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform. With capabilities that far exceed those found in other Cloud Storage offerings, the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform enables advanced features such as secure file sharing, collaboration, notifications, publishing via URLs, hierarchical and tagged file organization and end-to-end file security. The Mezeo business model includes a Cloud Storage Readiness team to ensure a rapid and successful Cloud Storage service launch and a revenue model that is driven by shared success.
