KUALA LUMPR, MALAYSIA, April 03, 2018 — ProphetStor Data Services, Inc., a leader in Intelligent data platform, today announced a strategic alliance with Peering One, a leading enterprise cloud provider in APAC, to integrate StellarFlash® in their Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) business model, providing the ultimate path to self-driving data centers. The STaaS is house to array of customer data inclusive of Production workloads, Virtual machines, Private cloud and Disaster Recovery. The partnership was aimed to meet enterprise-class data center customers’ needs for high Quality of Service (QoS) with Pay-Per-Use (PPU) model.
The complexity of customer’s data center experience has resulted in an increased demand for efficient and reliable data services. The bottleneck in delivering an unprecedented user experience for digital services today is not down to processing power but is because of storage. While Solid State Disks (or better known as SSDs) offer significant improvements in storage performance, they are still expensive and a mere pipedream for many.
StellarFlash® is a storage array that takes advantage of SSDs to allow cloud providers like Peering One to deliver the best user experiences possible in helping customers achieve assured QoS with a service-driven model. This STaaS service is hosted at Peering One’s data centers; being the first data centers in Malaysia and second data center in APAC to secure a Tier III Design Certification by the Uptime Institute. Tier III Certification is awarded to data centers with the highest reliability and availability level.
“A combined solution from ProphetStor and Peering One can bring the transparency and visibility of storage utilization to users. Thus, eliminates the inefficiency associated with managing business continuity,” said Chin Kar Wai, Chief Operating Officer of Peering One Sdn Bhd. “As a next-generation enterprise cloud provider, we have the foundation to provide these services now and beyond with Pay-Per-Use business model,” he added.
“It sounds like an expensive proposition but it is not,” said Regional Director of South Asia, Simon Ng. “StellarFlash® is ProphetStor’s patented artificial intelligence storage array. With Peering One, we are able to create an end-to-end STaaS offerings while delivering the best AI-based QoS to enterprise and data center in most cost-effective TCO in the industry.”
