Storagetek has launched a managed pay as you go storage service aimed at ecommerce startups with expanding data requirements.
The service, which will be available in Europe in the fourth quarter of 1999, will enable customers to tap into Storagetek's storage capacity the same way as consumers buy gas or electricity, explained Geoff Sinn, Storagetek's director of managed storage services.
Customers will be able to either retain their existing storage infrastructure but have it managed by an onsite Storagetek engineer, or have their storage tasks managed remotely.
For the latter, Storagetek will install their equipment inside Internet Data Centres, which provide IT services to Web companies. It has already signed agreements with two data centres, Frontier Global and Webvision, both based in California. Customers of those data centres will be able to use Storagetek's facilities as part of their services from the data centres.
