According to the industry analyst firm IT Brand Pulse, 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. The rapid transition from traditional CapEx storage to as-a-service solutions is due to the scalability, elasticity and economic benefits of OpEx-based storage-as-a-service. “At IT Brand Pulse, we believe that the rapid growth Zadara Storage is enjoying is due to their excellent product/market fit,” said Frank Berry, CEO IT Brand Pulse. “Users are tired of the traditional model of purchasing and managing storage, and Zadara Storage has a unique, world-class storage-as-a-service solution, providing enterprise-grade storage that is also fully managed.”

The Avnet Cloud Marketplace enables Technology Solutions partners, including value-added resellers (VARs), independent software vendors (ISVs), managed service providers (MSPs) and system integrators (SIs), easy access to products like the Zadara Storage Cloud. With this announcement, Technology Solutions partners now have access to the award-winning portfolio of Zadara Storage block, file and object storage services. All Zadara Storage solutions are provided in a pure OpEx, pay-as-you-go model, provide resource isolation, and are fully managed – enabling customers to focus on managing their business, rather than managing their storage.

“As enterprises worldwide continue the transition from purchasing CapEx storage to subscribing to OpEx-based storage services, we are pleased to add Zadara Storage to the Avnet Cloud Marketplace,” said Sergio Farache, senior vice president, strategic business units, Enterprise Solutions, Tech Data. “Corporate IT customers require flexible, agile storage services that align with their business, and Zadara Storage will enable our resellers to address this growing market demand.”
