Datapipe announced on Tuesday that SolidFire will serve as the primary storage system for its Stratosphere Cloud platform.

SolidFire offers a SSD storage system that delivers guaranteed performance and granular IOPs control. It has partnered with several cloud providers, including CloudSigma and Datapipe, to offer SSD storage as an option to cloud customers.

Because the Datapipe Stratosphere Cloud is designed for enterprise customers, offering SSD storage as its default storage system can provide peace of mind around performance and reliability.

“The integration of SolidFire’s fine-grain Quality of Service (QoS) into the CloudStack management framework was a key driver behind our decision to move forward with the technology,” Robb Allen, CEO, Datapipe said. “Having SolidFire as the primary storage system for Stratosphere allows us to deliver guaranteed performance storage and services catered to the enterprise.”

Stratosphere Cloud supports high performance computing, managed private cloud, as well as private and public cloud offerings.

“The ability to support and guarantee both HPC applications and general cloud workloads from a single storage system makes Datapipe extremely agile in responding to the changing application demands of their customers,” Stuart Oliver, Senior Cloud Program Manager, SolidFire said. “We look forward to helping them drive their unique solution set into the marketplace.”

Recently, Datapipe expanded its cloud services, including Stratosphere Cloud,  to Singapore through a new data center and offices.
