COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. –– STORServer®, the leading provider of proven data backup solutions for the mid-market, is today releasing the Virtual Appliance (VA), a downloadable virtual machine designed to use VMware® Consolidated Backup.
VA gives customers the ability to use their existing infrastructure with STORServer’s software and solutions to get the best backup solution in the world. Whereas the traditional line of STORServer Backup Appliances requires hardware, the new VA is a downloadable VMDK file that provides the same fully integrated and easy-to-use solution STORServer customers have come to expect.
Affordably priced, the VA series aggressively competes against any similar sized backup solution, providing resellers and end users an alternative to the traditional appliance model. STORServer’s intuitive user interface console simplifies daily management across the enterprise from a single location. The solution efficiently backs up multiple operating systems and email applications in addition to supporting most popular database platforms (requires optional database agents) and locations, including virtual machines, local and remote devices. Backups and restores can take place across all network connections (NAS, SAN, LAN and WAN) from hundreds of storage devices.
STORServer’s support offers a single point of contact for warranty and support of all non-hardware related events.
Built on IBM Tivoli Storage Manager, STORServer offers a complete suite of enterprise backup appliances, software and services that solve today’s backup, archive and disaster recovery challenges. Each VA uses the same Enterprise or Basic TSM software as other appliances, provides disk-to-disk-to-DR (disk, tape, cloud or appliance) configurations and scales for future growth.
To purchase the VA, customers can contact a certified STORServer reseller or visit http://www.storserver.com to quote their own STORServer Backup Appliance.
