IBM is to expand its SmartCloud Enterprise cloud-based storage services portfolio by integrating cloud storage technology from Nirvanix.

According to IBM, the integration of Nirvanix cloud storage technology, under an OEM agreement, "will provide customers with a solution designed to support millions of users, billions of objects and exabytes of data to complement IBM's existing security-rich, virtual server environments in the cloud'¦[and will] enable customers to "upload a file of any size from anywhere in the world and access it anywhere," as opposed to forcing customers to upload the same file multiple times in multiple geographic regions and imposing strict file size limitations.

"This is designed to provide customers with continuous access to data at multiple, redundant locations for optimal performance and business continuity," IBM said.

IBM says its new SmartCloud storage service is ideally suited for unstructured data such as documents, spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, health records, images, audio and video files, and e-mail and text messages, as well as for storing objects in which data, metadata and index are all encapsulated as one blob.

"To help ensure prompt access to unstructured data and objects, each node within the IBM SmartCloud storage service knows what is stored in its neighbouring nodes, essentially performing as a massive, cross-connected grid."

Jan Jackman, vice president for Global Cloud Services at IBM, said: "Nirvanix's'¦presence and strong adoption in leading Fortune 500 corporations makes its cloud storage technology ideally suited to IBM's global customer base."

With its CloudComplete portfolio, Nirvanix claims to be the only company that provides variable cloud deployment options, including public, hybrid and private cloud services. It claims to have over 1,200 global customers accessing its Cloud Storage Network from SMBs to Fortune 500 companies.
