Channel Partners, April 4th, 2018
ClearSky Data, one of many young storage startups vying for a share of the hot storage market, today announced a partnership with Faction, a multi-cloud platform-as-a-service (PaaS) provider. Together, the companies will deliver disaster recovery (DR) on demand with VMware, allowing customers to eliminate the need for a secondary data center.
The partnership with Faction allows ClearSky, a provider of on-demand primary storage with built-in offsite backup and DR, to answer the compute question, “What do I do with my VMware?”
“Faction has an on-demand cloud, so a customer can spin up VMware instances and pay for them on-demand similar to the way they spin up storage resources in our world,” said Laz Vekiarides, co-founder and chief technology officer at ClearSky Data.
