ProStor Systems Announces Major Corporate Milestones Including 200 InfiniVault® Customers and 200PBs of RDX Shipped
Milestones Demonstrate Value of ProStor’s Approach to Data Archive
BOULDER, CO – March 23, 2011 – ProStor Systems, the leader in enterprise-class removable disk storage systems for business backup, archiving, and retention management, today announced that the company has passed the milestone of 200 customers for the ProStor InfiniVault® archive storage system and the shipment of 200 petabytes of their RDX® removable disk technology.
“In our first two years selling into the archive system space, we secured 100 InfiniVault customers,” said Ian Duncan, vice president of marketing and strategy for ProStor Systems. “In the last two quarters, we’ve added another 100 clients, bringing us to today’s milestone of 200 customers. Our unique position as the only system vendor that can include our successful RDX technology, as well as traditional disk, in our archive storage solution gives us flexibility in data placement that other archive vendors don’t have. Our customer success demonstrates the value of our approach.”
The use of RDX disk within InfiniVault supports a tiered archive approach that allows data to be placed on the right type of storage for multiple usage patterns — online for fastest retrieval, nearline for long-term data retention, offline for single-site disaster recovery, and offsite for multi-site disaster recovery. InfiniVault is a combination of information management software, online disk, and RDX removable disk that provides complete data protection, continuous data access, security, and retention management throughout the data’s extended lifespan.
“InfiniVault is unique in its ability to effectively manage tier two data, “ said Phil Conard, vice president of revenue, operations and support at Quadax, Inc. “By managing data placement across spinning disk and RDX cartridges, ProStor has taken access windows to another level. Offloading our tier one SAN storage and reducing the demands on nightly backup processes allowed us to achieve various goals, translating into a short 12-month ROI.”
ProStor is engaged with over 250 channel partners selling the InfiniVault line. “InfiniVault has proven to be the ideal solution for meeting the archiving requirements of our construction customers,” said Phil Dixon, vice president of business development and marketing, Construction Imaging. “This integrated solution provides the ease of access and performance of online storage, with the economics of offline storage.”
The RDX® removable disk technology is sold by seven OEM partners including leading server manufacturers Dell, HP, and IBM. Combined, the RDX OEMs have shipped 200 petabytes of RDX capacity on over one million RDX cartridges to 250,000 customers worldwide.
