SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2015) - Connected Data today announced that it will showcase its Transporter private cloud solution during the upcoming NetApp Insight™ 2015 Conference, NetApp's (NASDAQ: NTAP) global conference, taking place October 12-15 at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. During the event, delegates will have the opportunity to see first hand how Transporter enables them to provide mobile device access and private cloud file sync and share capability for their NetApp network-attached storage (NAS), transforming it into a secure and powerful private on premise cloud environment.
Included with Connected Data's Transporter 75 and 150 file sync and share (FSS) private cloud appliances, the new Network Storage Connector syncs enterprise data stored on NetApp NAS with Transporter shared folders. This seamless and secure file sharing solution eliminates the need for Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and is maintained behind a company's firewall for true data privacy and protection. The Network Storage Connector extends the capabilities and benefits of enterprise NAS to deliver a turnkey, private cloud storage offering that provides all the simplicity of public cloud services with the security, performance and power of enterprise NAS. Now, users can easily access important files and folders stored on the enterprise NAS from their mobile devices for enhanced business productivity. Terabytes of files can be easily accessed over the Internet while the data remains 100% private and is stored only onsite for assured regulatory compliance, privacy, security and control.
"We are excited to have been invited by NetApp to showcase Connected Data's Transporter solutions in the NetApp Incubator: Startup Alley, at Insight 2015, representing solution innovations across multiple technology categories, and look forward to demonstrating how our innovative technology fortifies and enriches NetApp customer deployments," said Russ Johnson, COO, Connected Data. "We look forward to speaking with customers and channel professionals about expanding their use of NetApp NAS to include private cloud Enterprise FSS and mobile device access."
International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasts that the FSS market will grow at a 23.1% five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2018 to $2.3 billion. This healthy growth rate through 2018 will continue to be driven by the shift to cloud, mobile use of FSS, and the ability to share and collaborate with others effectively.
"We view Connected Data as being ideally positioned to serve a very real need within our customer base with its Transporter solution," said Stephen Bulfer, an EIR (Entrepreneur-in-Residence) for Venture Products and Business Development at NetApp. "Now, users can remotely access, sync and share data across NetApp's Data Fabric, from any mobile device, with all the convenience of a public cloud service, but without the security or compliance risks. This brings new application functionality and value to our data management solutions."
