Rockville, MD (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
FileTek, Inc., a leading global provider of large-scale data management, storage virtualization, and active archive solutions, today announced that its StorHouse® data management and storage virtualization solution is a finalist in three categories for the prestigious Storries IX awards from STORAGE Magazine a U.K. publication that focuses on all issues related to IT storage, including associated products and services. The award categories where StorHouse is a finalist are Storage Virtualization Product of the Year, “One to Watch” Product of the Year, and Solution of the Year. The final award decisions will be determined by online public voting through June 4, 2012, at http://www.storage-awards.com/. Winners will be announced at a black-tie gala on June 14, 2012, at The Grand Connaught Rooms, London.
StorHouse provides organizations with a complete solution approach that supports up-front data analysis, policy-driven data 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.
Architecturally, 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.
“FileTek is excited about being selected as a finalist for the Storries IX awards from STORAGE Magazine in three different categories. We look forward to the award announcement in June and wish all finalists good luck throughout the public voting period,” commented Gary Szukalski, President of FileTek. “StorHouse takes a unique, comprehensive approach to data and storage management by providing up-front data analysis, policy-based data migration from primary storage to a more cost-effective StorHouse platform, and comprehensive automated storage management features – all in one complete, easy-to-use solution. The system abstracts hardware, blends backup and archive on the same platform, scales to match user needs with no performance degradation, and automates/simplifies system administration. The bottom line is data integrity and high accessibility at the lowest cost per petabyte of storage.”
