New API Provides for Interoperability With Applications That Support Storage Clouds From Amazon S3, Eucalyptus and Google Storage
HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - August 9, 2010) - Mezeo Software™ (www.mezeo.com), the leading provider of a deployable cloud storage platform for service providers and enterprises, today announced the general availability of the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform 3.0, which includes the Mezeo Interoperability API.
The Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform 3.0 and the Mezeo Interoperability API enables seamless interoperability of applications developed for Amazon S3, Google and Eucalyptus based storage clouds. In addition, Mezeo has extended the Mezeo Cloud Storage API to include namespace access, which simplifies the use of the existing Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform API for applications that rely on path-based naming as opposed to object storage unique identifiers. As a result, developers have significant flexibility when utilizing storage clouds based on the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform. This includes using multiple APIs to access the same stored content.
"As enterprises continue to move various workloads into the cloud, they will only reap the rewards in control and trust from cloud platforms once they are interoperable," said Agatha Poon, Research Manager, Global Cloud Computing, at Tier1 Research. "The ability to enable a compatibility API is the first step in the right direction towards universal interoperability, which is a key decision metric for cloud providers in validating a raft of cloud enabling technologies."
"The Mezeo architecture provides for rapid development and deployment of REST Web Services APIs and additional APIs as the market demands them," said Steve Lesem, President and CEO of Mezeo. "This announcement is all about providing even more flexibility for our Mezeo Ready Premier Hosting Providers, their customers and developers, as well as our Mezeo Ready Solution Providers. The Mezeo Interoperability API enables developers to create a single integration to multiple storage clouds. At a business level, this translates into more flexibility, more functionality and more options."
Mezeo Ready Premier Hosting Partners will support the Mezeo Interoperability API as they roll out the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform 3.0 during the next few months. The Mezeo Ready Program is designed to make it easier for customers and service providers to find and deploy Mezeo Ready solutions that meet their particular business needs. The Mezeo Ready community is comprised of a wide-range of service providers, developers, cloud gateway providers and technology partners all focused on delivering Mezeo enabled cloud storage solutions.
