Wind Selects CTERA to Launch New Cloud Storage Services for Businesses

Italy's third largest service provider uses CTERA's Cloud Storage Platform to ensure business data privacy

MILAN, Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wind announced that it has launched a new cloud storage service for businesses based on CTERA's cloud storage platform, providing cloud storage provisioning, workstation backup management and secure file sync & share including team projects and multi-folder synchronization. The new service is provisioned from Wind's Italian-based datacenters with no need to deploy additional infrastructure.

Named 'Wind Storage per Aziende' ('Wind Storage for Enterprise') the new service is directed at the Italian large enterprise market. It allows users to store and safeguard data in the cloud, as well as securely access and share it via a mobile app across devices (smartphones, tablets and PCs,) all managed through a centralized management portal.

'Wind Storage per Aziende' is a SaaS-based (Software as a Service) offering, utilizing Wind's cloud storage infrastructure and allowing business customers to have their own private-hosted environment with complete separation of data, security and access privileges. Wind gives potential business customers the possibility to test 'Wind Storage per Aziende' and upon purchasing a corporate business SIM also provides special bundles.

"We believe that cloud computing is an exciting opportunity and are therefore placing major investments in cloud technology and infrastructure," said Pierpaulo Festino, Director Large Enterprise Business Unit at Wind. "It is a fact by now, and not a passing trend, and a great opportunity to improve the competitiveness and innovation capacity of companies in our country. 'Wind Storage per Aziende' provides immediate benefits such as improved ability to access data and applications, as well as an acceleration of IT innovation and improved collaboration between staff."

Localized cloud storage services are emerging as a significant opportunity in markets all over the world, and are essential for Italian companies that place particular emphasis on regulatory compliance and security. Reservations arising from the use of public cloud services have been exacerbated by the revelation of PRISM, the NSA's monitoring and data mining program, which has accelerated the development of domestic clouds within Italian borders. The "Powered by CTERA" services offered by Wind are implemented and managed in Wind's Italian datacenters, keeping all customer data within Italian borders as required by law for certain types of business data.

"CTERA is proud to take part in the emerging Italian cloud services market and is committed to its success," said Donato Antonangeli, Regional Director, Italy at CTERA. "We are excited to be working with Wind on developing the highest quality cloud storage services for businesses of all sizes, leveraging our extensive experience in the cloud service provider market and our unique platform for cloud storage enablement."

The solution will be available to enterprises via Wind's direct sales force.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
