ClearSky Data, provider of on-demand primary storage with built-in offsite backup and disaster recovery (DR) as a single service, today announced it is partnering with leading public and private cloud providers – including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cloudian, Google and Virtustream. ClearSky’s Cloud Edge offering runs in the public cloud, allowing enterprises to choose the right cloud within a multi-cloud environment while also leveraging public cloud compute for processing without having to copy any data. Customers reap the benefits of the hybrid cloud combined with high performance for their cloud-based workloads. 

A RightScale report this year found almost 70 percent of enterprises are embracing hybrid cloud by deploying multiple public and private clouds. In addition to on-demand data access across multiple locations, these organizations want the flexibility to choose which cloud is right for each application. ClearSky Data’s technology partnerships meet those needs, and its edge-based service delivery model means enterprises can leverage the elasticity and economics of the cloud for all their applications, whether they are on-premises or in the cloud.

"MSPs are getting a clear call from their clients for on-premises-level performance, flexibility and security, but with cloud economics. A hybrid, multi-cloud approach helps them meet that challenge, while leaving the door open to scale," said Jon Toor, chief marketing officer of Cloudian, an on-premises and hybrid cloud object storage provider and ClearSky Data partner. "The combined ClearSky and Cloudian solution arms MSPs with better capabilities and lower costs than public clouds, so they can help move their customers down the path toward their hybrid IT objectives."

Laz Vekiarides, chief technology officer and co-founder of ClearSky Data, said, "It’s time to think beyond ‘cloud’ as a concept and recognize that the multi-cloud realities of today’s environments place pressures on enterprises. As they balance on-premises, public and private cloud demands, our customers know they have a service that embraces cloud, ensures consistency for all data across on-premises, public and private cloud environments, delivers flash performance and helps them achieve their hybrid cloud goals."

As more organizations begin to adopt a hybrid cloud approach to storage, ClearSky Data’s latest technology alliances extend the company’s ability to deliver high-performance access to customers’ data, no matter where it is located. With ClearSky Data’s fully managed service, customers can run applications where they are best suited, whether it’s in a public or private cloud, or on-premises, enabling them to operate truly hybrid, multi-cloud environments.
