What it does? Zetta Enterprise Cloud service is changing the way enterprise storage users are buying managing and protecting storage. Zetta brings on-demand storage to the enterprise IT buyer by combining the features of enterprise-class on-premise NAS with the business benefits of storage-as-a-service, reducing costs by as much as 5-10 times over storage ownership costs. Unlike object-oriented cloud storage services Zetta presents itself as a fully featured NAS system with common protocol access, full data protection, encryption at rest, snapshots, and more, all without any on-premise software or appliances to install, manage, support or fail.
