Rockville, MD (PRWEB) January 17, 2013
FileTek, Inc., a leading global provider of large-scale data management, Big Data Storage virtualization, and active archive solutions, today announced that Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.com have chosen its StorHouse comprehensive data management platform as a finalist for their 2012 “Product of the Year” award in the Backup and DR Software category. This category includes backup and recovery software, cloud backup and recovery services, disaster recovery, snapshot and replication, electronic vaulting, and archives. To select this year’s finalists in all six award categories, an esteemed panel of analysts, users, consultants, and Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.com editors judged hundreds of product entries on innovation, performance, ease of integration into the environment, ease of use and manageability, functionality, and value.
“We are pleased that Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.com selected StorHouse as a 2012 ‘Product of the Year’ finalist in the Backup and DR Software category,” remarked Gary Szukalski, President of FileTek. “StorHouse is unique because it delivers a game-changing software solution with native file format backup, blended archive/backup on the same platform, version control, multi-user-point-in-time-recovery for historical views of data, high availability (HA) replication, and remote disaster recovery strategies for Big Data. As such, it reduces costs, enhances business continuity, and replaces system vulnerability with strengthened customer confidence and data protection. Moreover, StorHouse reduces time to data by eliminating the “fire-drill” that is restoration through immediate and direct end-user data access and reacquisition.”
Operationally, StorHouse intelligently blends disk, tape, and the cloud as part of a scaled-out NAS environment while providing an intelligent backup strategy for Big Data. Because StorHouse abstracts hardware, users see a single unified global namespace rather than specific device types. SSD, 2 JBOD, RAID, MAID, and tape all look like one unlimited storage pool. And by accessing data in native rather than proprietary file format, StorHouse eliminates formal restore procedures and gives users self-service access to all data at any time without IT intervention. No application interfaces or changes to existing applications are required. Other features include system automation for ease of use, automatic content validation/repair to eliminate silent corruption/bit rot problems, and individual backup file deletes on any media, including tape.
