Offers unlimited storage up to 16 PB and introduces Enterprise edition
Houston, TX (July 17, 2014) – SoftNAS, the #1 Best-Selling NAS in the Cloud, today announced the SoftNAS 2.2 upgrade for SoftNAS Cloud™ running on Amazon Web Services (AWS), VMware. The upgrade offers a simplified licensing model and introduces SoftNAS Cloud/Enterprise™ to the SoftNAS product family.
Currently, SoftNAS Cloud/Enterprise boasts the same robust feature set as SoftNAS Cloud/Standard. SoftNAS Cloud/Enterprise purely expands upon the existing SoftNAS Cloud’s 20 TB instance cap. SoftNAS Cloud Enterprise allows SoftNAS to offer support for up to 16 PB per instance on AWS Marketplace.
“SoftNAS Cloud/Enterprise is the answer to growing demand from SoftNAS customers for more storage capacity on AWS and other platforms,” said Rick Braddy, SoftNAS CEO and managing partner. “SoftNAS is thrilled to be able to deliver this capability to fulfill the needs of its Enterprise-level customers,” Braddy said.
Previously, SoftNAS users on AWS who required more than 20 TB of usable storage had to Bring Their Own License (BYOL) to run SoftNAS Professional™ on AWS Marketplace. Now, SoftNAS Cloud/Enterprise brings the convenience of on-demand SaaS pricing that is intrinsic to AWS Marketplace to customers who desire storage capacity over 20 TB.
The advent of SoftNAS Cloud/Enterprise necessitates the retirement of SoftNAS Professional; however, support will remain for existing SoftNAS Professional customers. SoftNAS Cloud for AWS starts at $0.18 per hour per instance and is available on both an hourly and annual basis.
SoftNAS Cloud/Enterprise for AWS starts at $0.315 per hour per instance. Both SoftNAS Cloud/Standard and SoftNAS Cloud/Enterprise support all instance types across all Amazon EC2 regions.
SoftNAS Cloud for VMware® is $495 per month and $4,995 per year for up to 20 TB, and SoftNAS Cloud/Enterprise for VMware is $995 per month and $9,995 per year for up to 16 PB.
