This morning’s press releases announced version 3 of SoftNAS and a glimpse of what we will be showing at VMworld next week.

Growing Demand for Secure Cloud Storage Drives 50% Average Monthly Revenue Growth for SoftNAS in H1 of 2014

The first half of 2014 marked continued record growth for our company, with the addition of hundreds of customers, including many recognized household names. The move to the cloud is certainly afoot for businesses of all sizes, and we are delighted to play a role in helping businesses protect their data and keep applications operational 24 x 7. SoftNAS continues to work closely with Amazon and AWS customers, supporting the cloud movement that’s underway in our industry today.

Today we also announced and released SoftNAS, version 3 – the fastest, most functional and highest quality product we have ever shipped. Version 3 is a software upgrade for existing SoftNAS customers. Version 3 features up to 300% faster performance due to optimizations and tuning, delivering more IOPS and throughput. It also features a new Active Directory wizard for easy integration with AD and granular access control for Windows shares (detailed Windows share attributes are now supported). Read more

SoftNAS 3 Ushers in New Era of Software-defined Storage for VMware Customers

Today we also released support for vCloud Hybrid Service, VMware’s public cloud platform. SoftNAS is the first and only NAS software product available for vCloud Hybrid Service. In addition, we announced support for what we are calling “Hybrid HA(tm)” – the ability to provide non-stop NAS storage between VMware data centers and vCloud Hybrid Service. Hybrid HA uses patent-pending technology that combines the power of premise-based virtualization with cloud computing in a way never before seen in our industry.
