Intel-Backed Nirvanix Goes Beta With CloudNAS Storage Service

Computerworld

Intel-funded Nirvanix has released a beta version of its new CloudNAS online storage service, giving users the ability to store up to 25 TB of data for free.Nirvanix's software-as-a-service offering allows corporate users to drag and drop files from network PCs into a cloud storage repository. The company, which received funding from Intel in December -- would like to see it tried out on such applications as long-term archiving, backup and automated transfer of files to mapped network drives. "Previously, enterprises could only access cloud storage by programming to an API," said Nirvanix CEO Patrick Harr, in a statement. "Now with CloudNAS, customers can immediately integrate Nirvanix?s cloud storage into their existing applications and processes, and forego new purchases of expensive...NAS products.?

CloudNAS, which is expected to go live later this year, has storage nodes in North America, Europe and Asia; it supports both Microsoft and Linux environments. Nirvanix plans to charge users 25 cents per GB of storage, plus $200 per month for support.Computerworld
