Moonwalk Universal announces partnership with RStor

Provides instant access to high performance RStorage

Palo Alto, CA – April 05, 2020 – Moonwalk Universal, a specialist in large-scale data management solutions, today announced its partnership with RStor, Inc. The RStorage platform provides a distributed file and object storage solution at up to 80% lower cost than the industry standard with no extraneous charges.

For more than a decade, Moonwalk has provided transparent access to cloud storage and file mobility automation to enterprise storage infrastructure. Moonwalk intelligently places data at the most appropriate location – on-premise file servers or object stores, offsite storage or cloud services. Moonwalk’s integration with RStorage further extends that capability and offers customers a high performance and cost optimized alternative to traditional cloud storage providers.

“We’re excited to be working with the team at RStor and see their offering as a strong alternative to existing public clouds,” said Mike Harvey, senior vice president of business development at Moonwalk. “RStor’s disruptive, fixed-cost model of with no restrictions and no lock-in provides customers a clear and predicable cost of ownership and no billing surprises.”

Designed to cut storage TCO, reduce complexity, optimize resource use, enforce corporate governance and more, Moonwalk’s unique capabilities provide granular control of files and objects according to project, location, user, size, name, age. Together with RStor, customers can optimize their infrastructure and leverage cloud storage, without facing sticker shock.

Moonwalk’s current GA release includes support for the latest file systems and servers, including Windows Server 2019, NetApp and Isilon. Moonwalk Starter Edition, available free for up to 25 TB of managed data, provides immediate access for RStorage accounts. As with the enterprise edition, Moonwalk Starter automates file mobility from expensive primary storage and bloated NAS systems to the RStorage platform, without impacting applications or end users.

Benefits of Moonwalk include:

  • Out-of-the-box support for major cloud and object stores
  • Reduced storage cost of ownership up to 80 percent
  • Reduced size of production file system volumes up to 90 percent
  • Zero middleware; zero single points of failure
  • No limits on file count
  • Reporting and analytics for continued optimization and improvement

Moonwalk can be purchased directly or from Moonwalk’s global network of partners. Moonwalk Starter Edition is available here
