Savvis, the cloud infrastructure company owned by CenturyLink, announced Monday the release of Savvis Symphony Cloud Storage to a limited number of clients, with full commercial availability in early 2013.
The latest in the Savvis Symphony suite of enterprise cloud solutions, Symphony Cloud Storage is hosted in data centers in London; Singapore; Toronto; Washington, D.C.; and Santa Clara, Calif.
It features unlimited storage with no term or capacity commitment required; users pay only for what is used. It also allows users to scale up or down as needed. SLAs and 24/7 support are provided.
Significantly, existing clients who use the CenturyLink private network will not pay data-transfer fees when downloading data. In addition, Savvis clients that host or colocate in a cloud storage-enabled data center do not pay transfer fees to move data between their cloud storage and infrastructure.
Symphony Cloud Storage is built on the EMC Atmos platform and is compatible with the EMC Atmos API framework, so users can integrate solutions from vendors already utilizing EMC technologies.
Savvis also has launched a Symphony Cloud Storage Partner Ecosystem featuring solutions from vendors, such as Riverbed for data protection and archiving; Oxygen Cloud for smart file access on mobile devices for enterprises; and Panzura for storage consolidation for global network-attached storage (NAS), archive and backup use cases.
Savvis serves nearly 2,500 unique clients, including more than 30 of the top 100 companies in the Fortune 500.
