This is an introduction to Mezeo Software, which has developed and is marketing a software platform – the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform for the deployment of cloud storage by service providers, including IT hosting providers, SaaS providers, VARs and managed services providers, telcos and ISPs. To our knowledge, it is the industry’s first deployable, white label cloud storage platform. It enables service providers to quickly and cost effectively enter the cloud storage market.

Service providers can use the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform and associated clients to quickly deploy a Personal Cloud™ storage online file services solution, giving their customers the opportunity to use the new capabilities for their file server needs. The company believes that mass adoption of cloud storage requires that the services be offered by service providers that already have trusting relationships with end users. Until that happens, people and companies will continue to be cautious about entrusting their data to the cloud.

  • Cloud Storage Definition and Discussion
    • Enables new capabilities for new and existing applications
    • Delivers new functionality to end users
    • Provides an as needed, web-scale development environment
    Cloud Storage: Defined Storage accessed through Web Services APIs via a network (LAN or WAN)
    • Immature and fragmented, yet rapidly growing market
    • No standardization on the required set of APIs
    • A storage alternative for some use cases, not a replacement for all storage requirements
    • May be cheaper than other storage options, and potentially less expensive to use, with richer, end user oriented functionality
    • Scalable, but only if the user of the storage can easily leverage it
    • Enables a pay for use business model
    • Independent from processing, accessible thru a network
