Nirvanix gets into Cloud Storage!

SAN DIEGO – June 10, 2008 –Nirvanix, the premier “Cloud Storage” platform provider, today announced the commercial availability of its Storage Delivery Network (SDN) for Enterprises, providing large companies with an unmatched archival and backup storage solution that simplifies management and reduces the costs typically associated with storage server management in a set of pre-packaged solutions.

Nirvanix’s enterprise offering provides companies with more than 5TBs of data in a highly scalable storage and delivery platform that satisfies even the most-demanding, business-critical needs, including:

•Breakthrough Economics – Depending on a company’s current storage architecture, the SDN can save 50-90 percent per annum in total OPEX and CAPEX expenditures for data archive and desktop backup applications.

•Security and Reliability – SSL, strong password authentication and de-identified physical file information prevents access to data without a three-step key. A 256-bit AES encryption client is offered as an application for additional security

•High Availability – Automated file replication to multiple locations around the world ensures data is not vulnerable to a single point of failure. Up to a 100 percent Service Level Agreement is available depending on business needs. This is an industry first.

•Versatile Ingestion Tools – With an FTP Proxy, virtual CIFS/NFS drive mounts, an open API for custom applications and the ability to accommodate local ingestion requests, Nirvanix can meet the varied needs of the enterprise.

•Enterprise-Class Support – Direct access to a Nirvanix account executive and sales engineering staff 7/24 is available.

Additional advantages over online storage offerings from other vendors include a maximum file size of 256 GB as opposed to the 5 GB maximum imposed by others; automated file replication for enterprise-class availability; enterprise-grade ingestion tools including virtual CIFS/NFS drive mounts and cross-connect services; clustered geo-node architecture for improved download performance and integrated media processing functionality for image resizing and rotating, and audio and video transcoding, scaling and frame extraction.

“The ability to safely and efficiently store and archive large data sets without the time, complexity and costs of managing server hardware is an ideal situation for companies of any and all sizes,” said Patrick Harr, Nirvanix’s Chief Executive Officer. “But, until now, the ability to deliver that solution to the largest customers remained elusive as many attempts at providing cloud storage to enterprises lacked the necessary services required in this unique market. With the peace of mind enabled by Nirvanix’s security and guaranteed reliability/availability, along with the industry’s only 100% SLA, enterprises can now store their archival data in the cloud without worry of outages or downtime.”

About The Storage Delivery Network
Nirvanix has built a global cluster of storage nodes collectively referred to as the Storage Delivery Network (SDN), powered by the Nirvanix Internet Media File System (IMFS). The SDN intelligently stores, delivers and processes storage requests in the best network location, providing the best user experience in the marketplace. With the ability to store multiple file copies in multiple geographic nodes, the SDN enables unparalleled data availability for developers, businesses and enterprises.
By using the Nirvanix SDN versus alternatives such as adding network storage systems or using first generation online storage platforms, businesses are guaranteed a shorter time-to-market, reduced costs, and also benefit from better flexibility and control for their operations.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
