“With Network Storage, a resilient, plug-and-play storage system, we take simplicity to a new level, enabling near-instantaneous implementations through our Bare Metal Cloud web-based user interface,” said Ron Cadwell, CEO of phoenixNAP.

phoenixNAP®, a global IT services provider offering security-focused cloud infrastructure, dedicated servers, colocation, and specialized infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) technology solutions, today launched network storage functionality within its Bare Metal Cloud platform. This option allows Bare Metal Cloud users to expand the storage capacity of their instance without hardware upgrades or performance degradation. Network storage can be requested and provisioned through the Bare Metal Cloud interface with just a few clicks.

As an affordable, off-the-shelf storage option, Bare Metal Cloud Network Storage enables businesses to meet their advanced storage capacity needs in a cost-effective way. This high-capacity system can handle terabytes of data without penalizing performance, which is why it is often used to store large volumes of unstructured data. Highly scalable and competitively priced, the solution is ideal for storing archive data, backups and large databases. Organizations looking to optimize their storage utilization without complex hardware upgrades can leverage Bare Metal Cloud to automatically provision both infrastructure and network storage.

“With the release of Network Storage, we are expanding our Storage-as-a-Service options in Bare Metal Cloud,” said Ron Cadwell, CEO of phoenixNAP. “Combined with our S3 API-compliant object storage service, Network Storage provides essential resources for organizations managing large volumes of highly dynamic data. Available at competitive prices, these two services allow organizations to optimize their storage costs and ensure advanced scalability. With Network Storage, a resilient, plug-and-play storage system, we take simplicity to the next level, enabling near-instant implementations through our Bare Metal Cloud web-based user interface.

The phoenixNAP Network Storage release follows a series of feature additions to Bare Metal Cloud. Shortly after adding public network IP blocks, simplifying IP management, and enabling the deployment of highly available Kubernetes clusters, phoenixNAP introduces network storage as another major feature to enable infrastructure optimization. Adding storage-as-a-service capabilities to Bare Metal Cloud allows organizations to choose from several available options depending on their needs.

“Organizations managing large amounts of data need an easy way to scale their storage while controlling costs,” said Martin Wielomski, director of infrastructure products and services at phoenixNAP. “Network Storage does just that with a streamlined implementation process and comprehensive billing model. We believe this new feature will bring significant value to Bare Metal Cloud users whose storage needs are growing dynamically. Along with the platform’s other technical capabilities, Network Storage offers DevOps teams and automation-focused organizations advanced flexibility in infrastructure management, helping to drive great business results.

Bare Metal Cloud from phoenixNAP is designed to provide flexibility and resiliency for organizations that rely on infrastructure automation to streamline their CI/CD pipelines. Its advanced hardware, flexible billing options, competitive bandwidth pricing, and hourly and monthly billing options allow businesses to modernize their IT, improve productivity, and speed time to release.
