OnRamp Announces Partnership with SolidFire

AUSTIN, Tex., Dec. 17 — OnRamp, a leading high security hosting provider with data center facilities in Texas and North Carolina announced the launch of SolidFire, a high performance data storage system for large scale cloud infrastructure. OnRamp will deploy SolidFire’s all-solid state drive (SSD) storage system to support its customers that operate managed hosting and private cloud environments within OnRamp’s data centers.

OnRamp’s use of SolidFire will enable the company to address the storage needs of its customers on a single platform that has the ability to deliver a predictable hosting experience regardless of the number of applications or the size of the applications they are running within each environment. “SolidFire’s all-flash array allows us to continue to deliver best in class enterprise solutions to our customers,” said John Thurik, OnRamp’s Chief Architect. “And, the flexibility of the system will allow our engineers to react quickly when addressing future customer needs.”

OnRamp’s managed hosting and private cloud and hybrid hosting solutions pair best in class hardware equipment with redundant power, multi-homed bandwidth over fully meshed networks and around-the-clock monitoring for 100% uptime. OnRamp’s technical staff is experienced all the way up through the application layer and offer Full7Layer Support to handle everything from simple reboots to assisting where customers, operating remotely, need it most: inside their racks.

“As performance continues to be increasingly important, end users are starting to look to their hosting service providers to offer all flash options,” said David Wright, CEO, SolidFire. “By integrating SolidFire’s data storage system as a core component of OnRamp’s next generation infrastructure, OnRamp will be able to assign both storage and performance requirements with the ability to easily scale operations based on its clients’ specific needs.”
