Rockville, MD –
August 28, 2012 (PRWEB) August 28, 2012 -- FileTek, Inc., a leading global provider of large-scale data management, Big Data Storage virtualization, and active archive solutions, today announced that its StorHouse product was named a finalist in the 2012 Golden Bridge Awards competition in the Information Technology (Software) Innovations, Storage Software Innovations, and Information Technology Software categories. The coveted annual Golden Bridge Awards program, with active participation from a broad spectrum of industry voices, encompasses the world’s best in organizational performance, products and services, innovations, executives and management teams, women in business and the professions, case studies and successful deployments, public relations and marketing campaigns, product management, websites, blogs, white-papers, videos, advertisements, creativity, partner programs, and customer satisfaction programs from every major industry. Organizations from all over the world are eligible to submit nominations, including public and private, for-profit and non-profit, largest to smallest and new start-ups. Winners will be honored in San Francisco on Tuesday, October 2, 2012, during the fourth annual awards dinner and presentations.
“It’s an honor to be named a finalist by the Golden Bridge Awards for this esteemed industry and peer recognition,” remarked William P. Loomis, CEO and CFO of FileTek. “These awards are a testament to FileTek’s commitment and ability to provide customers with unmatched levels of information access, data assurance, and lowest cost per terabyte of storage for all categories and volumes of data.”
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. It intelligently blends disk and tape as part of a scaled-out NAS environment while providing an intelligent active archive strategy for Big Data. Because StorHouse abstracts hardware, users see a single unified global namespace rather than specific device types so that SSD, JBOD, RAID, MAID, and tape, including LTO varieties, 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.
Worldwide customers use StorHouse for traditional digital preservation, active archive, backup, database extension, storage virtualization/internal cloud, HSM replacement, near-line retrieval tier for production data, and file/media/device replacement applications. StorHouse-managed content includes such varied data types as Office documents, call detail records, raw and edited video assets, genomic sequencing data, experimental research, Holocaust survivor testimonies, passenger name records, consumer fraud case records, and customer billing statements. In these areas, StorHouse saves organizations valuable time and provides a compelling hard-dollar ROI without compromising data availability, accessibility, or performance.
