Zadara Storage

Zadara Storage is a cloud storage company that provides block, file and object storage in the cloud, on premise or in hybrid cloud configurations through two products, VPSA Storage Array and ZIOS Object Storage.

Zadara supports a broad range of storage protocols, including Fibre Channel, iSCSI, iSCSI Extensions for RDMA (iSER), Network File System (NFS), Common Internet File System (CIFS), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and OpenStack Swift. Although the service uses a multi-tenant architecture, it isolates customer resources. Each customer has sole access to its storage media, whether it chooses SATA, SAS or solid state drives (SSDs). Isolation prevents the noisy neighbor effect, a degradation of performance that can occur when co-tenants monopolize bandwidth, disk I/O and other storage resources. To protect customer data, Zadara Storage allows customers to encrypt data in-flight or at-rest. In-flight data can be secured with IPsec. For data at-rest, the encryption keys are stored in an encrypted form using a password provided by the user.

Zadara Storage was the first storage provider to offer enterprise-level storage-as-a-service (STaaS). The company delivers storage services to its customers from more than 30 global service locations across four continents. Zadara's VPSA service provides customers with enterprise storage area network (SAN) and network-attached storage (NAS) functionality. Their ZIOS service provides customers with private object storage. Zadara Storage is based in Irvine CA and maintains a research and development (R&D) Center in Israel.
