Minneapolis, Aug. 28, 2006 – Compellent Technologies, a provider of modular, affordable storage solutions, today announced Shenyang Imatec Inc., a global leader in digital imaging products and one of the leading suppliers of digital camera modules to mobile phone manufacturers in China, has selected Compellent’s Storage Center storage area network (SAN) for its operational flexibility and continuous protection of data.
Shenyang Imatec Inc. is using Storage Center to consolidate silos of information into a single shared pool of storage that can be easily managed, optimized and secured. Storage Center replaces an expensive and difficult to scale direct attached storage environment.
“The Compellent Storage Center SAN helped us reduce the initial cost of deploying a consolidated storage solution,” said Mr. Zhou Hao, chief executive officer for Shenyang Imatec Inc. “At the same time, Storage Center provides us with enterprise capabilities that deliver the flexibility to scale without downtime as our business needs change, and the continuous protection of our data from damage or loss.”
Shenyang Imatec Inc. is headquartered in Shenyang with a manufacturing site in Dandong City, China that serves more than 30 mobile phone manufacturers on a just-in-time basis. Compellent’s ability to scale connectivity, capacity, and performance on the fly without impacting system availability enables Shenyang Imatec Inc. to grow based on its business needs, speeding response time to business changes. This operational flexibility allows them to react faster to changes in market demand for mobile phones.
Shenyang Imatec Inc. uses Compellent’s Data Instant Replay to create an unlimited number of space-efficient snapshots, ensuring Shenyang Imatec Inc. can instantly recover any size volume to any point in time in less than ten seconds. This protects Shenyang Imatec Inc. from a wide range of data hazards and disruptions including viruses, power outages, hardware failures and human error.
Compellent distributes Storage Center exclusively through a select international network of business partners that are trusted advisors on their clients’ technology decisions. Weitai Technology, a Chinese IT consulting firm, worked closely with Shenyang Imatec Inc. to understand its requirements and design a solution that delivers high-end functionality at an affordable price. “Compellent has developed an innovative product that delivers incredible value to customers,” said XiaoQuan Xu, director of sales for Weitai Technology.
