XIOSS Announces Partnership with Amazon Web Services
-- JULY 29, 2014 – ATLANTA, GA: XIOSS, a leader in enterprise data storage consulting and professional services, has entered into partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide “Cloud Computing” to its clients, on-demand delivery of IT resources with pay-as-you-go-pricing and scalability. XIOSS also employs the AVENT AWS tool to enable its enterprise customers to glean insight into their AWS services and billing, allowing charge back to their internal business units.
Through its affiliation with AWS, XIOSS continues to diligently and selectively build a best-of-breed portfolio of partners.
“By complementing current storage industry leaders with some of the newest market innovators, as we have through this partnership with Amazon Web Services, we help our customers navigate multiple technology options to customize optimal solutions,” says XIOSS CEO and Founder Susie Galyardt.
“‘Actionable’ data is critical to every organization and must be easily accessible to other departments and applications while being kept secure and organized while maintaining its integrity. This partnership with AWS assures this for our clients.”
Cloud Computing allows XIOSS clients to easily deploy applications in any or all of the 10 AWS regions around the world. This means a lower latency and better customer experience. With AWS, XIOSS clients can enable computing and storage within hours without the traditional capital expenditures and related upfront costs. Cloud Computing provides access to a highly distributed, full-featured platform at a fraction of the cost of traditional infrastructure. Hardware, installation and maintenance expenses are averted. Savings are realized, as AWS charges are calculated according to an Operational Expenditure model based on consumption. “This model is rapidly being adopted by large enterprise at an accelerated rate. Business leaders are looking to see which applications will go to the cloud first and how fast they can get them there,” says Galyardt.
AWS reports that its consolidated bill tool accurately tracks the provisioning and consumption at a per-instance level. “The toolset will also allow you to consolidate any underutilized instances to potentially cut your costs without cutting your capabilities,” AWS says.
AWS also seeks additional servers during periods of abnormally high demand, a process referred to as “auto scaling,” to ensure that applications remain operational.
Cloud technologies and the mobile work environment of today have created new challenges around the protection of data. XIOSS’ storage, data protection and Cloud services model deliver immediate and permanent return on investment on storage-related expenditures, as well as on mission-critical business applications by maximizing performance and data availability. XIOSS solutions protect business investments in people and know-how by leveraging traditional storage technologies and by allowing companies to enjoy a private or a hybrid Cloud services model.
The XIOSS-AWS partnership takes into consideration the unnecessary siphoning of finances through extraneous costs on data centers it serves, by tightening the band between service charges and actual usage. It is a continuation of the XIOSS mission of helping enterprises improve operational aspects of their data centers, while cutting costs; by recommending and availing to them technologies that address the unique needs of its clients.
