Developers of SoftNAS Counting Down to February 27 Launch Date

State-of-the-Art, Versatile, Networked Storage and Disaster Recovery Solution

HOUSTON, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Data storage is a perennial need of businesses large and small, but many of today's technologies are too unwieldy or complicated for small business customers. SoftNAS™ provides network attached storage (NAS) for cloud computing that meets every conceivable need simply and affordably. Available as software-as-a-service or as an in-house addition to a server room, SoftNAS is a seamless file storage solution. The industry has already taken notice: CRN included SoftNAS on its list of the top 10 hot storage technologies for 2013. More details on the technology and its various applications are available at http://www.softnas.com.

SoftNAS is the cloud storage OS. The SoftNAS cloud storage operating system is adaptable to any cloud computing environment or software configuration, whether true cloud platforms, such as Amazon EC2, or private clouds running VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V.  Administrators manage the software through a convenient web-based graphical user interface. In the world of storage solutions, SoftNAS is as close to plug-and-play as possible – just download, configure and go.

With small businesses especially, price is one of, if not the paramount consideration in every purchase decision. SoftNAS delivers a 65% lower total cost of ownership than comparable products.

"With SoftNAS, we are making powerful, complex storage technologies simple, reliable and affordable," said Bill Hood, founder and CEO of SoftNAS, LLC. "Instead of multiple devices or software deployments with steep learning curves, our technology was designed to work within existing architectures. Anyone who understands virtualization can have SoftNAS up and running in no time. It comes as no surprise to us that CRN put us on their list of the year's hottest storage technologies."

By virtue of the SnapReplicate™ feature, SoftNAS has also staked a claim as the world's best small business disaster recovery tool. SnapReplicate checks the source drive against the target drive every 60 seconds, updating the target drive as necessary. Users need not fear losing their data since SoftNAS is built with "out of the box" capability to replicate your critical data. When storage is synced across multiple geographic locations, a disaster in one server room can be quickly recovered in another.

The SoftNAS software can be loaded onto any existing commodity server hardware. Alternatively, larger businesses can purchase their own SoftNAS Virtual Storage Appliance and manage every aspect of their network attached storage, file storage and backup needs. An in-house VSA can interface with desktop virtualization deployments like Citrix® XenDesktop® and VMware® View, providing the most cost-effective, high-performance VDI storage available today.

SoftNAS was "feature complete" as of February 1. Quality assurance teams are working to identify and fix any lingering bugs in the days leading up to the live release on February 27. Everyone is eligible to try the program prior to the live release via registration with the Early Access Program: http://www.softnas.com/wp/support/contact/softnas-priority-notification-list/.

Five years ago development was seen as a dead-end career, now it’s anything but – with an explosion in mobile and IoT initiatives increasing the demand for skilled engineers. But apart from having a ready supply of great coders, what constitutes true ‘DevOps Royalty’? It’ll be the ability to craft resilient architectures, supportability, security everywhere across the software lifecycle. In his keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Jeffrey Scheaffer, GM and SVP, Continuous Delivery Busine...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
