Verizon Adopts Amplidata’s Himalaya to Provide Enterprise-Grade Object Storage with Security, Availability and Flexibility for Cloud-Based Workloads
by Kevin King
The proliferation of data is driving increased enterprise demand for cloud-based object storage. Verizon understands this and included object storage as part of the company’s next generation cloud offering introduced back in October 2013. Amplidata, a leader in object-based software defined storage, provides the core to that Verizon storage offering and now Amplidata’s new Himalaya storage architecture provides Verizon Cloud Storage with distributed object management and global file accessibility.
Amplidata’s Himalaya architecture provides a new framework for massively scalable storage, designed from the ground up to address demanding cloud applications and provide service-level flexibility for businesses looking to optimize their cloud resources. With Himalaya, customers can easily store and manage zettabytes of data and trillions of stored objects, representing a geometric leap in scale that anticipates rapid growth in customers’ appetite for highly durable and available storage.
Verizon creates enterprise-level services that allow large companies and organizations to tap into the power of the cloud. Verizon Cloud Storage is an object-addressable, multi-tenant storage platform providing safe, durable, reliable and cost-effective storage accessible from anywhere on the web. Himalaya is a core component of Verizon Cloud Storage that manages the distributed storage process to help reduce latency.
