IRVINE, Calif. -- February 18, 2014

Zadara™ Storage, Inc., provider of enterprise-class cloud storage as a service
(STaaS), today announced that media and other companies in the Los Angeles
area in California now can benefit from a more effective enterprise cloud
storage option thanks to a new relationship between Zadara and CoreSite
Reality Corporation (NYSE:COR), a provider of network-dense, cloud-enabled and
enterprise-class data center solutions. Effective immediately, CoreSite’s Los
Angeles One Wilshire data center campus now allows the international
telecommunications carriers, media and entertainment companies, cloud
providers, social network and gaming sites, and enterprises that are
co-located there to enjoy Zadara’s Virtual Private Storage Array (VPSA)
solution for block and file Storage Area Network (SAN) and Network Attached
Storage (NAS) services. CoreSite customers gain the flexibility and
affordability of a cloud solution for either primary (for applications) or
secondary (for repository) storage, yet with the superior Quality of Service
(QoS) of traditional storage.

With many LA area organizations such as those in the media and entertainment
industry relying on computing applications whose constantly changing files
perform better on NAS and SAN storage than on object storage offerings, the
CoreSite relationship with Zadara is set to have a significant impact on these
businesses’ ability to benefit from the best of both traditional and cloud
storage, with great flexibility and without compromise. In choosing Zadara,
CoreSite colocation customers can meet the demanding performance targets of
mission-critical applications, yet leverage the cloud’s superior economics and
scale, and pay as they go for these resources out of operating rather than
capital expenses. In addition, companies with Asia-Pacific or other global
collaboration and disaster recovery requirements can automatically replicate
to any Zadara site around the world, including Northern California, Singapore,
Tokyo, the US East Coast, Toronto, Zurich, Dublin, and more.

“CoreSite is proud to provide services to enable Zadara’s enterprise-class
VPSA solution which offers the scalability to add or change storage capacity
at will throughout our Los Angeles facilities,” said Brian Warren, Senior Vice
President at CoreSite. “In addition to storage-as-a-service from Zadara, our
local customers can interconnect to cloud-based IT resources and applications
resources as part of CoreSite’s Open Cloud Exchange community of enterprises
and networks and cloud providers.”

Zadara’s dedicated, flexibly-deployed hardware is located on premises at
CoreSite’s facilities, adjacent to CoreSite customers’ compute resources, and
connected to servers by CoreSite’s high-speed fiber lines. This architecture
allows cloud-delivered QoS to remain exceptional, even for massive data
volumes. Zadara’s approach uniquely provides dedicated disks, virtual
controllers, and separate networking to achieve single-tenant, predictable
performance at a multitenant price. Each Zadara customer receives its own
management interface from which they can add or eliminate disks, switch from
disk to SSDs and back, adjust controller capacity, and fine tune their storage
needs on the fly – allowing flexibility and control. Zadara storage is priced
starting at around 11¢per GB per month depending on controller and disk
selection,andbilled by the hour.

“Organizations are either staying put on traditional storage because they
haven’t found the enterprise-grade features they need in the cloud or they’ve
had frustrating experiences with rudimentary cloud storage that required
complex architectures or yielded insufficient or unreliable performance,” said
Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage. “Through our relationship with CoreSite
we’re eager to help more service providers and enterprises start moving more
of their business applications to the cloud.”

Zadara Storage and CoreSite will showcase media & entertainment applications
for STorage as a Service (STaaS) via CoreSite’s data centers at the Hollywood
Post Alliance 2014 Tech Retreat, February 17-21 at the Hyatt Regency Indian
