Mezeo Helps Launch SoftLayer’s CloudLayer Storage Solution
CloudLayer Storage is Built Upon the Secure, Accessible Mezeo Cloud Storage PlatformTM
Houston, TX—May 13, 2009—Mezeo Software Corp. (www.mezeo.com), the leading provider of deployable cloud storage solutions for service providers, congratulates SoftLayer, a leading IT Hosting Provider, on the successful launch of its cloud storage solution, CloudLayer Storage service. SoftLayer (www.softlayer.com), a Mezeo Premier Hosting Partner, introduced CloudLayer Storage last week. CloudLayer Storage is powered by the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform.“We deployed the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform because it was purpose built to meet the needs of service providers," said Lance Crosby, CEO of SoftLayer. “Mezeo’s advanced REST-style Web Services APIs made it easy for our development team to integrate advanced storing, managing, sharing and collaboration capabilities into our CloudLayer Storage service, and their white-labeled access clients enabled our customers with anytime, anywhere access to their files stored in CloudLayer Storage.”CloudLayer Storage utilizes SoftLayer's advanced StorageLayerTMsolution, which integrates industry-leading technologies --including FTP/NAS, iSCSI, EVault, and others – into a unified storage environment for the ultimate level of security and reliability. Use of Mezeo’s platform ensures that the files are always secure and encrypted – SSL encryption in transit and 256 bit AES encryption at rest. User access is controlled using role based permissions and share expirations. Mezeo’s white labeled Access Clients for Windows Desktops and leading mobile smartphones – BlackBerry®, iPhoneTM, and Windows Mobile® devices, enable ubiquitous access to files on CloudLayer Storage. In addition, these files can be accessed via WebDAV or a Web 2.0 browser interface.Use of CloudLayer Storage is ramping rapidly. “I am pleasantly surprised by SoftLayer's new CloudLayer service. The speeds are superb and the prices are excellent,” said, Shayan Amindani, Business Development Executive at VectorLevel LLC, a CA based web-hosting company.“SoftLayer has done everything right throughout the deployment process and the result is that CloudLayer Storage provides best-of-class capabilities that businesses and consumers want right now,” said Mezeo President and CEO Steve Lesem. “It is exciting to see the market embrace the extraordinary value of Mezeo’s deployable cloud storage platform as deployed by SoftLayer. The Mezeo cloud storage solutions can be quickly and cost effectively integrated into an IT service provider’s offerings.”
