What the Industry Is Saying

Partner Healthcare
"ClearSky Data is a key part of our overall strategy to move to the cloud. After extensive testing of the ClearSky service, we found it delivers as promised: high-performance, low latency, elastic storage on-demand for multiple workloads. Without giving up the benefits of on-premises storage, we’ve gained scalability and cut costs. It’s a compelling consumption model that enables our growing cloud initiatives, and we plan to bring more data into the ClearSky service in the coming months."

“Before we started using the ClearSky service, we had required up to 48 hours of downtime to migrate customer workloads. With ClearSky, our migration time has shrunk to 15 minutes, and we’re saving our customers an average of 60 to 70 percent to deliver our service, as compared to using traditional physical storage arrays.”

Wikibon
“Users in the Wikibon community require solutions that simplify data lifecycle management. ClearSky gets to the heart of a critical issue in today’s hybrid cloud environment — latency and data access for enterprise applications that can be running anywhere. The ClearSky service is a dramatically different approach to storage management, enabling enterprises to get the benefits of high performance and predictable latency without all the complexity and cost of a traditional solution.”

“Managing primary storage is a huge and poorly-served challenge in the enterprise infrastructure market. Legacy systems have failed to address customers’ needs and no one has figured out how to leverage the economics and agility of the cloud – until now. ClearSky has addressed this challenge head-on, creating a breakthrough software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering for primary storage. We’ve entered the next generation of the enterprise and ClearSky has a great opportunity to build the next major infrastructure company.”
