Rockville, MD (PRWEB) May 15, 2012
FileTek, a leading global provider of large-scale data management, storage virtualization, and active archive solutions, announced today that Network Products Guide, industry's leading technology research and advisory guide, has named StorHouse® a winner of the seventh Annual 2012 Hot Companies and Best Products Awards in the Infrastructure category. These industry and peer recognitions from Network Products Guide are the world’s premier information technology awards honoring achievements and recognitions in every facet of the IT industry. Winners from all over the world were honored in Las Vegas on Tuesday, May 8, 2012, during the seventh annual dinner and awards presentations.
An annual achievements and recognition awards program with active participation from a broad spectrum of industry voices, the coveted annual Hot Companies and Best Products recognition program encompasses the world’s best in organizational performance, products and services, hot technologies, executives and management teams, successful deployments, product management and engineering, customer satisfaction, and public relations in every area of information technology.
A StorHouse storage virtualization and data management platform simplifies and enhances operational infrastructure all while providing unparalleled data assurance and information access at the lowest possible storage cost. The system 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.
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 appreciates this esteemed industry and peer award recognition of StorHouse as Infrastructure Product of the Year,” remarked Gary Szukalski, President of FileTek. “We believe that StorHouse is a bright new idea in intelligent storage management. And, to that end, this award further validates our position as a company poised to help organizations across public and private sectors successfully overcome the increasing number of storage infrastructure problems wrapped around critical issues such as backup, archive, file migration, scalability, architectural flexibility, and cost-effective system operation.”
