Longmont, CO (PRWEB) March 24, 2010
Data Storage Group (http://www.datastor.com) an industry-leading provider of data backup and disaster recovery software with integrated deduplication, and Tandberg Data, a global supplier of data protection solutions, have formed a strategic relationship to deliver efficient and complete data protection platforms, specifically designed for small and mid-sized businesses around the globe. As an enhancement to its DPS2000™ Series NAS and RDX® QuikStor™ removable disk platforms, Tandberg Data recently introduced its new AccuGuard™ solution, which employs customized dataStor™ software technology, to deliver highly reliable, cost-effective and easy-to-use data backup, recovery and deduplication capabilities for SMB users.
According to Ted Oade, Business Unit Manager, Disk and Software, Tandberg Data, “We evaluated a number of software companies before concluding that dataStor’s customizable and flexible software products were the best match for our portfolio of tape and disk data protection solutions. Because our customers rely on us to protect their data and provide cost-effective business continuity, we needed to integrate powerful, intelligent, yet, easy-to-use software with our best-in-class solutions, and we found that with the Data Storage Group product line.”
As companies struggle to manage rapidly rising volumes of data from multiple devices and locations across older or capacity-limited networks, the increasing complexities and costs of data backup and disaster recovery are causing these firms to rethink traditional data protection strategies. Long backup windows, inadequate remote office data protection, unreliable data restores, growing data storage costs, and limited IT resources are mounting pressures for many SMB users, driving the need for innovative and affordable data management strategies which leverage the best blend of hardware and software available to streamline and optimize data storage operations.
One particularly effective approach involves decreasing backup storage requirements by using data deduplication software to identify and eliminate redundancies at the source and optimize the data before it’s transmitted across networks. Data Storage Group’s deduplication software has demonstrated substantial increases in bandwidth utilization, thereby facilitating much quicker and more efficient backups for SMB users – as much as 20 times faster than traditional backups.
According to Brian Dodd, dataStor CEO, “Since 2005, dataStor’s disk-based Windows™ backup software with integrated global data deduplication has provided compelling benefits to small to medium businesses in both the private and public sectors. Our software consistently delivers significantly shorter backup windows and reliable data protection and recovery features for critical business data. With the scalability and flexibility to backup an unlimited number of physical and virtual servers and desktops, customers are able to realize immediate cost savings which continue to grow as their organizations and data storage requirements expand. We receive exceptionally positive feedback from our customers, and look forward to partnering with Tandberg Data to extend these benefits to their client base as well.”
Steve Borecky, Enterprise System Manager for St. Vrain Valley School District, comments, “As the 9th largest school district in Colorado, SVVSD manages highly sensitive and valuable data – such as test scores and reading logs – for more than 26,000 students from 48 individual schools. The legacy tape-based backup process we had been using was time-consuming, expensive, and difficult to manage. Tight budgets drove us to look for an affordable district-wide alternative that was reliable, efficient, and easy to use. The dataStor software delivered value and reliability beyond our initial expectations, allowing us to protect 1 TB of data for 30 days using only 250GB of storage. Additionally, the software automatically verifies the consistency of all data points and accomplishes nightly backups from our 48 geographically dispersed sites in less than an hour. We are extremely pleased with all aspects of the performance and value of the dataStor solution.”
