MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- 3Tera, Inc., the leading innovator of grid computing technology and utility computing services for Web applications, and Nirvanix, the premier Cloud Storage platform provider, today announced that the two companies have entered into a partnership to offer new advanced cloud computing solutions, including global distributed storage, content distribution and remote backup capabilities, for Web application developers.
3Tera and Nirvanix will be integrating the Nirvanix Storage Delivery Network (SDN) into the standard AppLogic catalog of virtual appliances. The first such integration is the inclusion of the Nirvanix SDN as a backup target option within the AppLogic Grid Operating System backup dynamic appliance. The solution enables developers to select the Nirvanix global storage network for the highest performance storage available in the market today. Additionally, by selecting the Nirvanix SDN, AppLogic customers will be able to send backup copies to multiple global locations simultaneously for best practices in disaster recovery. This integrated solution was demonstrated today, live, with a real application grid backing up multiple images and gigabytes of data to the SDN in just a few seconds.
We are happy to see Under The Radar participants starting new partnerships, said Debbie Landa, founder and CEO of Dealmaker Media, the organizer of Under The Radar conference. Both 3Tera and Nirvanix are new to our Graduate Circle of companies, both are offering exciting new technologies that allow emerging companies to easily build, manage and scale their Web applications without the need to build and own complex and expensive data centers. Their announcement today is a proof point for our efforts to facilitate new business opportunities and exchange of innovative ideas.
