Zadara Storage, the provider of enterprise-class storage-as-a-service (STaaS), and Trio today announced that Zadara's VPSA Storage Array platform is now being offered by Trio as part of their new storage-as-a-service portfolio. The new offering is intended for Israeli-based companies who are interested in migrating their existing CapEx storage to an OpEx-based cloud environment and International companies who are interested in hosting or replicating their data in Israel.

Industry research has shown that the public cloud storage-as-a-service market is growing at approximately 25% per year, and by 2020 will capture 25% of a massive $50 billion in enterprise storage spending (source: IT Brand Pulse, February 2017). This transition is driven by IT professionals recognizing that the traditional Capital Expense (CapEx) model of capacity acquisition and management cannot keep up with the data storage needs of today's enterprise. Instead, IT organizations are being asked to reduce costs, while at the same time providing immediately available, elastic, and reliable enterprise-grade storage. The traditional model of evaluating potential vendors, buying, installing and maintaining disk arrays and then repeating the cycle every 3-5 years cannot support this goal.

In fact, it is being applied to virtually anything. There almost too many types of public cloud computing to keep up with, including:...
