Redstor shines at Cloud Expo Europe

posted in Redstor ● 27 Jan 2012

Redstor attended Cloud Expo Europe this week, a technology exhibition hosted by The Cloud Industry Forum to enable organisations to further understand the benefits cloud computing can give them around business agility, risk mitigation and reductions in management complexity. We were on the stand with Equinix – our Data Centre and co-location provider – alongside various other cloud service providers who use their facilities. The show was very well attended, with 6,000+ registered delegates passing through the doors of Olympia. We had a number of very interesting conversations with both channel partners and end users – a common theme that appeared was around the increasing size of environments people are now looking to use Online Backup or Cloud Storage for. We found many video companies and financial houses keen to archive inactive data to more efficient platforms, several of whom are now interested in Redstor’s Cloud Archiving service. This would allow them to archive old data to the cloud. It was also good to bump into some familiar faces in the shape of the Redstor channel partner community – those of you who were there, it was great seeing you and we’re glad to hear of the rewards you’re reaping from using a partner enabled cloud platform from Redstor.
