Nirvanix Unveils Business Storage Service

San Diego-based Nirvanix said today that it has emerged from stealth, and has unveiled a new business-to-business storage service. Nirvanix said that the new service will provide storage targeted at Web 2.0, media application, service provider, and consumer electronics firms. The new service will be offered as a service to companies. The company is headed by Patrick Harr, former CEO of storage over the Internet provider Streamload (now MediaMax). Nirvanix said the firm's services are in public beta and will be generally available this month, and will be priced at $0.18 per gigabyte per month of storage and $.18 per gigabyte transferred from the service. The firm's services are similar to storage services offered by Amazon through its Amazon S3 storage services.
