Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) October 14, 2004
Tokyo Electron Limited, a leading Japan-based computer reseller, announced today that it has signed a distribution agreement with Data DomainÂ® to resell the company's DD200 Restorer disk-based recovery appliance.
The DD200 is the industry's first disk-based recovery solution that enables users to fully recover data at speeds typically reserved for high-end storage devices at a cost similar to tape automation. Speed-of-data-recovery and the ability to store up to 23 TB of data on site are the primary reasons Data Domain customers say they have made the company's new recovery appliance an integral part of their backup and recovery strategy.
"The market for Data Domain storage recovery products in Japan is very large and requires a sophisticated reseller channel to meet growing customer demand," said Frank Slootman, president and CEO of Data Domain. "Tokyo Electron Limited is a key part of our Sales and Marketing strategy for our international expansion into the Japanese market. They're an extremely experienced, technically knowledgeable ally and we're excited about partnering with our first reseller in Japan."
Data Domain customers represent a cross section of industries, including e-commerce, technology, education, digital effects and software development.
"The Data Domain recovery appliance offers a unique value proposition to our customers. It’s a cost-effective, scalable disk-based backup solution that reduces the time for backups and restores and ensures accurate restoration of data. Another plus is that it seamlessly integrates with standard backup software," said Vic Amano, VP & General Manager of the Tokyo Electron Limited Network Division.
The DD200 also includes optional remote replication software called the Data Domain Replicator. Replicator enables data replication from one DD200 to another. Since the transferred data is highly compressed, the data flow volume is dramatically reduced, saving expensive bandwidth. Remote office data backups and disaster recovery strategies are both efficient and cost-effective with the Replicator. Up to 99% of the network bandwidth used by general disk-based backup/recovery solutions can be saved.
