Overall Satisfaction with Zadara Cloud Platform

I used Zadara Cloud to test FalconStor virtual tape library product in it (called FalconStor StorSafe). I was able to deploy it on Zadara cloud and run backups/restores, using both block storage as well as their object storage.
  • Host VMs using windows and linux
  • Provide object storage
  • Provide block storage
  • VMs misses some functionality like being able to swap the boot disk.
  • To allocate storage to the VM, you need to configure iscsi connections from both ends.
  • Marketplace still missing major products.
  • VM capability
  • Object storage capability
  • A cloud provider option for European market
  • No real impact, as I only used it for some proof of concept.
  • New cloud provider still missing some features and functionality.
  • An alternative cloud provider hopefully cheaper than its competitors.
Zadara is a new cloud provider, so it does not have all functionalities and features as its major competitors like Amazon Cloud and MS Azure. It is up to you to test it, but personally, I still prefer MS Azure as a cloud provider.

Do you think Zadara Cloud Platform delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Zadara Cloud Platform's feature set?


Did Zadara Cloud Platform live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Zadara Cloud Platform go as expected?


Would you buy Zadara Cloud Platform again?


I only used it as a proof of concept for some products. For me, it seemed to be focused on the European market, but it´s a pretty new cloud provider in comparison to other major competitors like Amazon and Azure which are much more developed, so they are still missing some functionality and features.
