FT. Lauderdale, FL PRWEB) December 3, 2004 -- DataCore Software announces an increase in Disaster Recovery Solutions sales in Japan. This year Mother Nature took its toll and severely interrupted companies throughout the country. With multiple typhoons and earthquakes, the dangers of disruptions of services and data loss were at an all time high. The destructive earthquake that rocked Niigata prefecture and a wide area of Japan including Tokyo had a magnitude of over 6.0 and shut down many business and factories for weeks. Disaster Recovery solutions are extremely expensive and difficult to set up – Japanese companies can no longer afford to delay implementations, therefore demand for low-cost simple solutions has soared. DataCore users and case studies prove that cost-effective disaster recovery is now a reality. More importantly, DataCore customers deploying SANsymphony remote site AIM Mirroring were comfortable in their knowledge that their data was protected.

Current high profile customers include Japan's largest Internet service provider IIJ, Sony Computer Entertainment, NEC Soft, and many others. Semiconductor maker Toyo Dempa exemplifies a company enjoying the benefits of DataCore's technology across multiple sites. According to a recent jointly published case study, Toyo Dempa chose to protect their state-of-the-art factory data by replicating it between Niigata and Kyoto, Japan.

The Earthquake that struck Niigata brought home the importance of deploying remote site data storage protection. Mr. Daimon of Toyo Dempa System Group stated, "SANsymphony meets the ever changing storage and disaster recovery requirements for the long term – it is a proven flexible system infrastructure that manages and protects data between our sites."

Toyo Dempa protected its critical data by using SANsymphony AIM to affordably replicate data storage in Netware and Windows environments between its secure remote sites. The software provided additional savings by enabling mirroring over the existing Internet Protocol (IP) infrastructure without the need for costly data conversion hardware or special leased lines.

"Recent natural disasters have stressed the need to safeguard data. Plus more and more Japanese corporations are implementing large-scale storage area networks to protect information across remote sites," said Peter Thompson, managing director, Asia Pacific for DataCore. "DataCore's SANsymphony is a proven disaster recovery solution in Japan - it protects critical customer data and won't break their budgets – put simply, it gets the job done at the right price!"
