ClearSky Data, provider of on-demand primary storage with built-in offsite backup and disaster recovery (DR) as a service, today announced a collaboration with Packet for an edge computing deployment at the SBA Communications tower site in the Boston area. ClearSky will co-locate next to and coordinate with Packet to provide a complementary service.
SBA has an edge data center in Foxborough, Mass. at the base of one of its towers, where Packet is currently providing its carrier-grade bare metal cloud service. ClearSky will now offer edge-based storage, backup and DR as a service, enabling customers to power high-performance edge computing applications and workloads from this site.
"With ClearSky Data and Packet, customers can access a cloud native infrastructure that can be easily connected to self-protecting storage," said Jacob Smith, Chief Marketing Officer at Packet. "It's an extremely compelling edge story for the enterprise."
