PacketFabric acquires cloud provider RSTOR
PacketFabric has confirmed the acquisition of RStor Inc, a privately held cloud-based provider of data mobility solutions.
“Data is the currency of digital business success. The agility and velocity of data in motion is key to unlocking its value,” said Dave Ward (pictured), CEO of PacketFabric.
“But optimal data mobility across a cloud-based architecture requires two key ingredients–an agile network and super-positioned data infrastructure. By integrating RSTOR’s storage infrastructure and data mobility technology at the edge of PacketFabric’s carrier-class Network as-a-Service platform, we can help enterprises build an agile and high-performance cloud data core.”
The news comes as enterprises continue to build their digital businesses around a hybrid and multi-cloud core architecture, they require greater agility both in connecting, storing and efficiently moving data across that core.
“RSTOR has built and grown its business around the idea of allowing customers to control their data as they transition from on-premises to hybrid and then multi-cloud architectures,” said Giovanni Coglitore, founder and CEO of RSTOR.
“PacketFabric’s on-demand, low-latency network has been a foundational element in our solution, allowing RSTOR the agility and cost-efficiency in moving data into, out of, and between clouds. The complete integration between our data mobility cloud and PacketFabric’s network platform is the logical step in our journey to maximise the value that our customers are already enjoying.”
PacketFabric’s Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform facilitates on-demand connectivity across colocation facilities, cloud providers, and private network interconnection globally.
In addition, its agile connectivity enables enterprises to move at the speed of the cloud, digitally transform their business and deliver superior digital experiences.
“PacketFabric and RSTOR were already key Bridgepointe suppliers, helping us deliver intelligent and adaptive cloud infrastructure to enterprises. We’re excited to see even greater value for our customers as the two solutions integrate as one,” said Mel Melara, vice-president of sales and head of data centre practice at Bridgepointe Technologies.
Together, PacketFabric's NaaS platform with RSTOR’s storage and data mobility services creates a stronger offering for enterprises, and for global channel and technology partners.
“We are excited to see PacketFabric with its Network-as-a-Service capabilities being offered with RSTOR’s innovative storage and data mobility services. The combination of these integrated solutions will be extremely attractive in the APAC region and beyond,” said Nobuhiro Suemasa, CEO of TwoFive Inc.
