Cloud storage system provider Tilana Systems announced on Tuesday it is offering a system that enables hosts to use Linux or Windows servers to immediately offer cloud storage directly to end-users or through a sales channel. The system has a provisioning API for integration with existing billing and support systems.
"The Tilana RealCDP system enables the immediate implementation of cloud storage while providing the customer trusted and distributed infrastructure already implemented by the hosting community," says Joe Austin, Tilana CEO.
"Developers and their customers can work with the specific benefits of a hosting company that provides accessibility to data with an immediately available set of initial apps."
By partnering with Tilana, companies can offer fully custom branded SaaS featuring cloud based multiple PC auto-sync, real-time automatic CDP backup, and a web accessible Personal Digital Archive.
In March, the company began offering the Tilana Cloud, a software-as-a-service development environment for applications based on Tilana's continuous data protection, storage and synchronisation services.
Web hosts and developers can also use fully documented Tilana Cloud APIs for building and launching custom Web applications and desktop software that interface directly with Tilana RealCDP enabled servers and storage.
Specific APIs enable users to receive direct access to different features available in either the client or server side components of the Tilana Cloud server-based data protection, sync, and archive system.
Users can deploy Tilana to create simple applications with fewer UI capabilities, while the developer can decide the level of integration of Tilana technology in custom built applications.
The system offers storage scaling by instantly spanning a CDP object across multiple storage servers.
Tilana RealCDP installs on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and 2000, and uses Microsoft SQL Server 2005 for databases to store user owned content and user authentication data, which can span across multiple storage databases, on multiple storage servers, with no need for multiple installations of Tilana RealCDP.
Users will need Microsoft IIS 6.0 with ASP.net 2.0 to implement the web access portion of the Tilana user interface.
The new beta version of Tilana RealCDP for Linux currently installs on Red Hat Enterprise 5.x, and requires MySQL v5.x on the server for end user authentication and scalable user owned content storage.
