Crucial works with SolidFire and OnApp to produce Blaze Cloud

Promises guaranteed performance in the Cloud

Cloud hosting solutions provider, Crucial, is promising its customers guaranteed performance levels in the Cloud with its Blaze Cloud solution, developed in combination with technology partners, SolidFire and OnApp.

Blaze Cloud, which uses SolidFire all-solid state drive (SSD) storage area network (SAN) and OnApp Cloud Management Platform and control panel, puts control of applications performance into customers’ hands, according to Crucial.

“Instead of server performance being dependent on the number of customers using the infrastructure at any given time, Crucial’s Blaze platform allows customers to specify the number of input/output operations per second (IOPS) they require,” Crucial managing director, Aaron Weller, said.

“The combination of SolidFire’s all-SSD storage systems and the OnApp Cloud Management Platform allows us to provision storage with guaranteed performance levels… and [customers] can use the OnApp control panel to change the configuration of their server in real-time.”

Although it has been initially developed for Crucial, Weller said Blaze will be available to other Cloud hosting providers. He said this is because it is something the industry needs and will help to drive the evolution of Cloud business solutions.
