Cloud Wedge, 6/27/19
ClearSky Data and Packet announced a revolutionary new service today. The storage-as-a-service was designed for enhanced edge computing data centers in Boston. ClearSky is an industry leader in primary storage services as well as adaptive data recovery services. They also offer premium offsite backup storage options for a wide range of business customers.
The partnership between ClearSky Data and Packet centers on SBA Communications towers and data centers. There is an existing center in Foxborough, Mass. that Packet is already assisting with by offering cloud services integrated into the data center network. ClearSky is stepping in to provide edge-based storage, data loss recovery, and offsite backup storage to upgrade the security and reliability of the sites.
Jacob Smith, the Chief Marketing Officer at Packet, summed up the new collaboration by saying, “With ClearSky Data and Packet, customers can access a cloud-native infrastructure that can be easily connected to self-protecting storage. It’s an extremely compelling edge story for the enterprise.”
