StorHouse is a highly differentiated, flexible product that brings great value to customers, including ease of integration
Rockville, MD (PRWEB) July 30, 2009
FileTek, Inc., a pioneer developer of high-volume data management and information governance solutions, today announced that it has certified storage systems from iQstor Networks, Inc. for use with its StorHouse data management and digital preservation solution. iQstor Networks is a market leader and provider of high-performance, intelligent, reliable, and affordable storage systems. FileTek takes a hardware-agnostic approach to storage management so that it can certify and use best-of-breed storage technology. This strategy enables StorHouse solutions to work within current customer system environments, architectures, and mission-critical applications. The benefit is a measurable, cost-correct ROI that dramatically preserves investments in existing technology and significantly reduces the total cost of data ownership. Integration of iQstor further establishes how easily FileTek can certify and incorporate new industry-leading storage technology to achieve this important goal.
StorHouse is a hardware agnostic solution capable of supporting a mix of traditional and alternative media types such as optical, tape, and disk. Customers can lower their overall cost of storage by configuring the appropriate media for their data based on compliance, retention, and/or performance requirements. StorHouse automatically manages information throughout the storage hierarchy, including maintaining multiple copies on mixed media types and migrating content across multiple media levels. In addition, StorHouse flexibility prevents technology obsolescence by accepting new storage devices and media types dynamically as they become available. Information on today's StorHouse systems will remain retrievable and maintainable with tomorrow's improved technology.
StorHouse applications include historical preservation implementations; persistent archives; relational database extension systems; full-file-format data availability and backup systems; and offsite, online, or on-shelf disaster recovery solutions. Since 1984, StorHouse has been installed in some of the most demanding commercial companies, prestigious educational institutions, and scientific and government agencies worldwide, where supported capacity configurations range from as little as 10 terabytes to multiple petabytes in size.
"StorHouse is a highly differentiated, flexible product that brings great value to customers, including ease of integration," said Jason Lo, president and CEO of iQstor Networks. "iQstor's high-performance and intelligent storage systems complement and fortify the automatically managed, multi-layered StorHouse architecture by providing fast access to very large amounts of structured data and unstructured fixed content. We look forward to many more StorHouse installations that use high-performance iQstor storage systems in the months to come."
"Being hardware agnostic gives FileTek the flexibility to develop relationships with industry-leading storage providers such as iQstor Networks," remarked Jim Ewing, Vice President of Development for FileTek. "It also enables our customers to choose the best available storage technologies. With this approach, FileTek and its customers can never be held hostage by hardware because StorHouse can transparently migrate data from aging storage devices and media types to newer, more improved options without disturbing normal system operations. This feat is one of the many traits that distinguish StorHouse from the competition."
