NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2014
NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Softbank Telecom Corp. and Yahoo Japan
Corp. work together in providing cloud services and from February 6 started
providing Yahoo! Japan's unlimited-capacity storage service, Yahoo! Cloud
Storage, as White Cloud Distributed Storage.^*1
The storage platform for this distributed storage is Riak CS, U.S. company
Basho Technologies, Inc.'s distributed database technology,^*2 which enables
fast access to large-volume data and highly-reliable system architecture that
conventional storage services have difficulties providing. Stored data will be
automatically replicated for redundancy, within both the same data center and
among multiple data centers, enabling Yahoo! Japan to offer
unlimited-capacity, fast and safe storage that is fault-tolerant,
disaster-resistant, robust and highly-available.
(1) Low-cost storage of large-volume data
The basic price for 1GB data storage will be ¥10 before tax, or
approximately $0.10, enabling low-cost storage and backing up large-volume
data and contents, which are important in this big-data era.
(2) Excellent performance
All files can be stored, including images, documents and video. With the
high-performance distributed storage clusters, uploading and downloading
data are smooth and comfortable.
(3) Robust and highly-available
In addition to replicating data within each data center in Japan, the data
is automatically distributed among remote data centers in East and West
Japan for robustness and high availability.
(4) Highly compatible with Amazon S3 API
This distributed storage uses the REST (Representational State Transfer) Web
API, which is highly compatible with Amazon's cloud storage, Amazon S3. You
can use applications and services that use REST API. With the unified
interface for cloud storage, hybrid cloud access simply requires changing
the access points, meeting customer needs for secure access.
