"ParaScale’s unique architecture enables us to offer differentiated cloud storage solutions to meet the needs of our customer base,” said Raj Dutt, CEO of Voxel. “With ParaScale, we have been able to realize our target feature-set and TCO. Unlike what we have seen with some other products, ParaScale is truly designed to scale out both performance and capacity by using commodity servers running Linux.”

“With ParaScale technology, Voxel is now able to offer high performance, multi-location, multi-tenant cloud storage at an attractive price point,” said Sam Machiz, Vice President of Sales at Voxel. “Additionally, the ease of provisioning and deploying ParaScale, combined with the automation features of VoxCLOUD, allows us to create high-value hosted private clouds for our most demanding customers that meet their required levels of security, performance and compliance.”

There is significant opportunity for service providers in cloud computing. Analyst firm Tier1 quantifies the public cloud service market to be around $300M in 2009 and conservatively estimates 100% growth per year for the next three years. Cloud storage is estimated to be approximately 40-60% of this market and customers can adopt it quickly because it doesn’t require many programming tweaks to existing applications.

“Voxel’s cloud storage services go beyond the basic cloud storage offerings in the market today. This next generation of services leverage ParaScale’s flexible infrastructure that provides internet-scale storage, self-management and the flexibility to function simultaneously as a cloud, a NAS pool, an analytic platform or integrated virtual compute/storage platform,” said Sajai Krishnan, CEO of ParaScale. “We are pleased to have been selected by Voxel as their global partner in deploying a cloud storage solution.”
