Rockville, MD, May 1, 2012 (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
FileTek, Inc., a leading global provider of large-scale data management, storage virtualization, and active archive solutions, today announced that a panel of esteemed editors and industry analysts selected its StorHouse® data management and storage virtualization solution as a finalist for the prestigious Datacentre Solutions 2012 Storage Software Product of the Year Award. To qualify for this award, a product must demonstrate a strong competitive advantage and a measurable ROI to users. The final award decision will be determined by online public voting through May 7, 2012, at http://www.dcsawards.com/voting. Winners will be honored on May 23, 2012, at a black tie awards ceremony and program at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel and Conference Centre London Kensington.
StorHouse is a hardware-independent, multi-functional software platform that automatically stores, validates, retrieves, backs up, archives, and manages terabytes to zettabytes of file-based and relational information on a single, easy-to-access system. Because StorHouse abstracts hardware, users see a single unified global namespace rather than specific device types. SSD, JBOD, RAID, MAID, and tape all look like one unlimited storage pool. In addition, by storing data in native rather than proprietary file format, StorHouse eliminates the need for formal restore procedures. Instead, users have self-service access to StorHouse-managed data at any time without IT intervention. No application interfaces or changes to existing applications are required.
StorHouse is a full-service system with data analysis, policy-driven migration, and automated storage management features, thereby providing a unified, cost-effective storage experience for users and applications. By intelligently migrating files from primary storage to the lowest-cost StorHouse-managed media, StorHouse reduces the amount of operational data requiring backup and drives up to a 90% reduction in overall storage costs without changing the way users work with and access data. The end result is unmatched data assurance and access at the lowest cost per petabyte of storage.
“FileTek thanks the Datacentre Solution’s panel of judges for selecting StorHouse as a finalist for the 2012 Storage Software Product of the Year Award. We look forward to the award announcement in May and wish all finalists good luck throughout the public voting period,” commented Gary Szukalski, President of FileTek. “Our finalist status validates the competitive advantage and measurable ROI that StorHouse provides. And, that value is real. As one of our customers, the Carnegie Institution for Science, attests, StorHouse enhances operational efficiency while providing a 781% ROI and three-month payback period.” (http://www.filetek.com/images/CaseStudies/cs_carnegie.pdf)
