StorageNetworks to Power Pihana Pacific’s Storage Services

StorageNetworks, Inc. and Pihana Pacific today announced that Pihana will leverage StorageNetworks’ STORfusion(SM) services within the U.S. and Asia/Pacific regions. The STORfusion services will enable Pihana to deliver data storage management services to customers co-located at Pihana’s data centers in Los Angeles, Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Seoul and Sydney.

“This agreement is part of our strategy to provide managed services to our customers and build the next breed of IDCs across the underserved Asia/Pacific region,” said Richard Kalbrener, president and CEO of Pihana. “Our customers need relief from the cost and complexities of deploying and managing their storage environments. Delivering data storage as a service is a tremendous value for our customers — allowing them to focus on their core competencies. STORfusion services are best-of-breed and will give us the ability to create a significant new source of revenue by expanding our portfolio of services.”

According to the companies, STORfusion will enable Pihana to rapidly deploy data storage management services to its customers and quickly enter the growing global $100 billion ($US) data storage market.
Pihana plans on taking advantage of StorageNetworks STORos(SM) storage operating system, Virtual Storage Portal(SM) (VSP(SM)) software and STORvision(SM) command and control software, as well as 24×7 monitoring capabilities and customer go-live support to deliver fully managed data storage services. Pihana Pacific will market six branded services within three core storage product offerings – Pihana Pacific SAN, NAS and Backup & Restore services.
