Rockville, MD (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
FileTek has been recognized as a triple finalist in the Annual 2013 Golden Bridge Awards for its StorHouse® ForeverNAS™ software. The three finalist categories are Archive Product or Service Innovation, Storage Software Innovation, and Information Technology Software. 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 in the world. Organizations from all over the world are eligible to submit nominations. Winners will be honored in San Francisco on Monday, September 30, 2013 during the fifth annual awards dinner and presentations.
StorHouse ForeverNAS solves the long-term storage and data management problems associated with the growing volume of critical “forever read” data – information that organizations must store, access, and protect for long time periods or in perpetuity to satisfy compliance/legal requirements or to continue to leverage as a long-term business asset. By combining the conveniences of standard NAS solutions (simple online CIFS/NFS connectivity, a front-end file system interface, and standard networking capabilities) with sophisticated, intelligent storage management features, ForeverNAS delivers today’s most efficient, cost-effective, long-term storage platform.
While standard NAS solutions effectively meet the requirements for primary, or Tier 1, storage, they generally do not provide the ForeverNAS features necessary to manage, migrate, secure, and validate large volumes of critical data on a long-term basis. These features include a highly scalable global name space that accommodates future storage growth with no adverse effects on system performance, data integrity protection, and a hardware agnostic strategy that blends cost-effective storage options in a multi-tier strategy while maintaining a NAS interface. ForeverNAS also supports an open storage architecture that seamlessly incorporates the “next big thing” (NBT) storage technologies as they become available. Other features include data migration from obsolete storage devices and media types to new ones transparently and automatically during normal system operation and a flexible policy creation engine for automating storage management features such as migration, backup, active archive, retention, replication, and recovery.
“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.”
