SAN MATEO, CA – Cloudian® today announced that HostedBizz, one of Canada’s premier cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers, has launched a new sovereign cloud data protection offering based on Cloudian’s HyperStore® object storage platform. The new service, HostedBizz HBS3, will bring the benefits of HyperStore’s limitless scalability, fully native S3 compatibility and advanced security features to HostedBizz’s customers. In addition, HostedBizz will offer HBS3 under a consumption-based pricing model in which customers pay only for the capacity they use each month.
Headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario, HostedBizz provides an integrated suite of IT infrastructure services including cloud servers, backup, disaster recovery, file sharing, remote desktop services, and private network access through a network of IT partners and resellers.
As it looked to expand its cloud offerings, HostedBizz wanted to ensure it had the best object storage platform. After conducting an extensive review of multiple vendors’ solutions, the company selected HyperStore as the foundation for its HBS3 service solution.
