SoftNAS(TM) Releases Big Data Capabilities at Little Data Prices(TM)

HOUSTON, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- SoftNAS, LLC today announced immediate general availability of its SoftNAS(TM) Professional Edition and SoftNAS Essentials(TM) products, for Amazon EC2, VMware® and Microsoft® Hyper-V®.

SoftNAS provides network attached storage (NAS) for cloud computing that meets customer needs simply and affordably.

Available as software-as-a-service or as an in-house addition to a server room, SoftNAS is a seamless file storage solution. The industry has already taken notice: CRN included SoftNAS on its list of the top 10 hot storage technologies for 2013. More details on the technology and its various applications are available at

SoftNAS is the cloud storage OS(TM). The SoftNAS cloud storage operating system is adaptable to any cloud computing environment or software configuration, whether true cloud platforms, such as Amazon EC2, or private clouds running VMware® or Microsoft® Hyper-V®. SoftNAS provides "Big Data" NAS capabilities at affordable prices for small to medium businesses, data centers and managed service providers and government agencies.

Administrators manage the software through a convenient web-based graphical user interface. In the world of storage solutions, SoftNAS is as close to plug-and-play as possible - just download, configure and go.

With small businesses especially, price is one of, if not the paramount consideration in every purchase decision. SoftNAS delivers a 65% lower total cost of ownership than comparable products.

"With SoftNAS, we are making powerful, complex storage technologies simple, reliable and affordable," said Bill Hood, founder and CEO of SoftNAS, LLC. "Instead of multiple devices or software deployments with steep learning curves, our technology was designed to work within existing architectures. Anyone who understands virtualization can have SoftNAS up and running in no time. It comes as no surprise to us that CRN put us on their list of the year's hottest storage technologies." By virtue of the SnapReplicate(TM) feature, SoftNAS has also staked a claim as the world's best small business disaster recovery tool. SnapReplicate checks the source drive against the target drive every 60 seconds, updating the target drive as necessary. Users need not fear losing their data since SoftNAS is built with "out of the box" capability to replicate your critical data. When storage is synced across multiple geographic locations, a disaster in one server room can be quickly recovered in another.

The SoftNAS software can be loaded onto any existing commodity server hardware. Alternatively, larger businesses can purchase their own SoftNAS Virtual Storage Appliance and manage every aspect of their network attached storage, file storage and backup needs. An in-house VSA can interface with desktop virtualization deployments like Citrix XenDesktop® and VMware View®, providing the most cost-effective, high-performance VDI storage available today.

Two free downloads are available, a 60-day free trial of the SoftNAS Professional Edition, and the free SoftNAS Essentials Edition.
