Hostway Expands Hosted Storage Solutions

By Hostway

Hostway Corporation, one of the world's largest hosting and web application providers, announced today the expansion of its existing hosted storage solutions with the availability of an Enterprise-Class Shared SAN (storage area network) product. Shared SAN will augment existing hosted storage offerings which include direct and network attached high performance storage arrays, For customers with high volume and/or high performance requirements, the range of add-on storage solutions can cost effectively augment the internal storage available with each dedicated or virtual server.

Hostway's shared SAN is an easily upgradeable solution that lowers the cost of storage, because the high performance, enterprise class array is shared among multiple customers, eliminating upfront capital expenditures. The SAN is fully managed and maintained by Hostway, freeing customers to focus on running their businesses. Storage can be acquired on a demand basis, enabling capacity to be ramped up and down without penalty as needs change.

"The new Shared SAN solution solves a significant problem for our customers" said Todd Benjamin, director of Enterprise Hosting. "Now server customers can access high performance, reliable, and virtually unlimited storage on a service basis as the needs of their businesses dictate."
