SoftNAS saves a year’s worth of development time by offering a common storage environment for distributed servers

HOUSTON –November 14, 2016 – SoftNAS®, the #1 best-selling software-defined cloud NAS, today announced MagHub has selected SoftNAS to deliver a common storage environment for its large data farm serving hundreds of customers. Commercialized in 2013, MagHub is a platform used by publishers around the world to operate a media business.

As an Amazon Web Services customer, MagHub was searching for a way to upgrade its storage capacity to handle business critical data and integrate a rapid, secure backup solution.

“SoftNAS solved a huge problem for our team. We were facing challenges with a distributed set of data that was hard to scale and centrally backup to the cloud. Alternatives required a significant CapEx investment and a huge time outlay,” stated Rudy Pataro, Founder of MagHub.  “We needed a much quicker solution and found SoftNAS to be effective and easy to implement.”

“Maintaining distributed data sets in and out of the cloud can result in slow replication and backup times which can be arduous to manage,” said Rick Braddy, CEO, CTO and Founder of SoftNAS. “We take the complexity out of backup and offer an easy way to replicate disparate sets of data creating logical management within minutes.”
