Plug and Play Partners With Kodiak Data to Offer First Native, 100GE, In-building Private Cloud Services



Kodiak Data and Plug and Play are pleased to announce Kodiak Data has been chosen to power Plug and Play’s multi-tenant cloud services and provide access to the high performance of MemCloud™, the edge-cloud for big data applications and processing.  As Plug and Play’s industry-leading “Silicon Valley Cloud” partner, Kodiak Data enables Plug and Play to add 40GE and 100GE private virtual cloud, private datastore cluster, and private analytics cluster services to their innovative startup ecosystem.

“We are delighted to be the private cloud partner of choice for Plug and Play, a renowned Silicon Valley-based company supporting startups and entrepreneurs around the globe,” said Kodiak Data’s CEO, Som Sikdar.  “Kodiak Data’s memory-speed cloud infrastructure brings the fastest cloud on the planet to Plug and Play’s datacenter and tenants.”

Plug and Play had been looking for a simple yet powerful solution to provide to the startup businesses and entrepreneurs located in their Sunnyvale location.  With Kodiak Data’s solution, tenants can also connect their private clouds via fiber to access their S3 object stores at 100Gbps — an industry first.

“Not only does their technology outperform our expectations, but the Kodiak Data team is also responsive and flexible,” said Syed Azhar, Plug and Play’s CIO.  “We are excited to launch Plug and Play’s ‘Silicon Valley Cloud’ and implement it in other US locations by end of first quarter.”
