This week Nirvanix announced that IBM Global Services will be launching its own public cloud storage service based on Nirvanix's Cloud Storage Network (CSN) technology. This is a major coup for Nirvanix, to say the least. IGS plans to make the cloud available to the public for placement and access to archival and backup data and for content collaboration. Targeted industries are healthcare, media and entertainment and financial services. IBM also plans on integrating this cloud storage service with its proprietary compute cloud at the software layer; both offerings will be sold by IBM under the SmartCloud banner.
Despite recent growing pains in the cloud market, there are many signs that the cloud is here to stay. The pace of innovation is tremendous, and a number of companies - both large and small - are now focusing on developing the enterprise-level features that will increasingly attract corporate applications and data.

In the past few months Nirvanix has been delivering one multi-petabyte customer win after another. What started in October with a 5-year, global OEM deal with IBM worth countless Petabytes has continued with a 2+ petabyte private cloud win at Cerner Healthcare, followed by a 8.5 Petabyte private cloud win at USC, with a true hybrid cloud at Hawaiian MSP DRFortress and film studio Relativity Media added to the mix as well. Nirvanix is banging out multi-petabyte deals and making it look like cloud storage has been around for decades, which, of course, it has not.
While on the surface they all look alike there are huge differences in capabilities between different public cloud offerings in the market today. We talked to two recent users who selected the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network offering. Their experience is very telling. Read on.
