Only Cloud Provider to Offer Object Cloud Storage with No Data Transfer Fees
LOS ANGELES, CA – May 7, 2014 – dinCloud, a cloud services provider that helps businesses rapidly migrate to the cloud through business provisioning, today launched dinStorage D3, a dedicated cloud storage solution with no data transfer fees, usable by hundreds of D3 compatible applications.
Through the use of dinCloud’s dinManage platform, customers can create and start using D3 accounts in minutes, managing their dedicated storage while using their favorite D3 clients including Veeam, Symantec, NetBackup, CA ARCserve, CommVault, and Cyberduck, among others.
Why dinCloud for D3?
dinStorage D3 encrypts all data with AES256bit keys and continually stores three copies of data. Additionally, dinCloud does not charge data transfer fees and offers private connectivity via a dozen carriers including MPLS (vs. only offering Internet access). End users receive unlimited storage capacity and are only charged on a per GB, per month basis with no complicated upload or download fees. dinCloud also offers many different connectivity options to fit a customer’s budget via dinTransport.
“The D3 protocol is used by hundreds of applications worldwide for backup, cloud gateway servers, as well as cloud drives, like Dropbox, which are built on top of D3. But, as widely adopted as D3 has become, it’s had a few drawbacks, including low performance over the Internet for large datasets, unencrypted disks, and heavy transfer fees for restores,” said Mike Chase, CTO at dinCloud. “For these reasons, it was very hard for customers to predict what their costs would be prior to getting a real eye opening bill, even with cost calculators. That’s why we created dinStorage D3 – it provides economical storage, wide application compatibility, and unlimited bandwidth usage. Our storage backup without limits makes it the most cost effective D3 solution on the market today.”
Features of dinStorage D3 include:
- Create multiple D3 storage accounts.
- Assign friendly account labels
- Reset D3 credentials using secure mechanism
- Delete D3 storage account including data on the storage
- Configure per GB pricing of storage through admin interface
- Supports both net terms and credit card users
- Security measures to protect users’ credentials
- Auto calculation of billing on hourly basis through a separate dinManage daemon
- Confirmation emails for all actions
- Compatibility with other free and paid D3 storage clients
For channel partners, dinStorage D3 provides the ability to sell popular D3 compatible software packages, as well as provide installation, configuration, and other support including managed services with D3 as the backend.
