TOKYO--February 23, 2011--Internet Initiative Japan Inc. (IIJ, NASDAQ: IIJI, TSE1: 3774), one of Japan's leading Internet access and comprehensive network solutions providers, today announced the March 2011 release of IIJ GIO Storage Service FV/S (beta version), a REST API cloud storage service built on IIJ's low-cost, high-volume IIJ GIO Storage Service.

IIJ GIO Storage Service FV/S is a cloud-based storage service that provides an HTTPS/REST interface as an API using the high-quality, high-performance, enterprise-class IIJ GIO storage as a foundation. This service is being provided as a new option within the IIJ GIO Storage Service, and thus it differs from the IIJ GIO Storage Service FS/S, which uses a corporate network for large-scale file servers and other applications within an enterprise. Client applications connect directly with the API and use the service directly through the Internet.

This beta version of the service is being offered on a trial basis before the production version is released in May 2011. This allows us to test the functions of IIJ GIO Storage Service FV/S and confirm that the API connection functions properly with the client's application. It also gives us an opportunity to verify smooth migrations from similar existing cloud services (such as those provided by overseas service providers).

Use of REST API-based cloud storage services is spreading overseas, and demand for these flexible, high-volume cloud storage services is expected to grow in Japan as well. Thus, by providing a homegrown cloud service with better quality, IIJ is providing the infrastructure that allows our clients to take advantage of these services in their Web services or as one of their internal business systems.

IIJ will actively expand the line up of IIJ GIO services and provide our customers with the highest quality cloud services to support their business infrastructure.
