STORServer enters cloud business with solutions and services for safe, reliable and scalable data protection

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. –– STORServer
<http://storserver.com/>®, the leading provider of proven data backup
solutions for the mid-market, announces today it is entering the cloud
market with three cloud options for safe, reliable and scalable data
protection.

The cloud solutions are backed by the company’s award-winning
purpose-built data protection appliance and are sold with a data
recovery guarantee, which ensures that customers will not only get their
data back in the event of a loss, but the data will be useable once it
is recovered. STORServer offers both private and public cloud offerings
for disaster recovery, as well as managed cloud services for automated
backup, archive and disaster recovery:

1)Disaster recovery to a private cloud

This service, which is available to existing IBM® Tivoli® Storage
Manager (TSM) and STORServer customers, includes a STORServer Backup
Appliance for automated disaster recovery that is configured to the
enterprise’s daily backup requirements. Customers who purchase this
cloud offering typically want to move away from tape or currently do not
have a disaster recovery solution. Full data protection recommends an
off-site second backup copy or disaster recovery copy. Disaster recovery
to a private cloud packages a second appliance as the target to copy the
primary TSM or STORServer Backup Appliance.

*2)**Disaster recovery to a public cloud ***

This service provides a unit-based monthly or annual service charge for
copying backup or archive data to a remote location. STORServer offers
disaster recovery charged on a space basis (cost per gigabyte or
terabyte) to replicate data from an existing onsite TSM or STORServer
Backup Appliance to a certified STORServer public service provider. No
additional onsite hardware or software investment is necessary.
Customers who purchase this cloud offering do not require a dedicated
cloud appliance and typically want to move away from tape or currently
do not have a disaster recovery solution.

*3)**Backup, archive and disaster recovery to a public cloud*

This solution is available to any facility and does not require a TSM or
STORServer installation. Purchase and installation of software clients
and database agents, however, is required. Like disaster recovery to a
public cloud, this service includes a storage-based (cost per gigabyte
or terabyte) fee for copying and storing backup or archive data to a
certified STORServer public service provider. Customers who purchase
this cloud offering typically want a completely “hands-off” solution for
backup, archive and disaster recovery because they cannot justify the
expense of a hardware solution or staff for daily administration.

“As with all STORServer data protection solutions, deduplication,
encryption and compression functionality are performed at no extra
cost,” said Bill Smoldt, president of STORServer. “Data transfer speed
is only limited by your network connection. Regardless of the method you
choose, all data is secure and recoverable at the service level that you
require.”

Built on IBM TSM, STORServer offers a complete suite of enterprise
backup appliances, software and services that solve today’s backup,
archive and disaster recovery challenges. Like all STORServer data
protection solutions, cloud offerings provide all the features and
functions users have to come to expect from STORServer. Licensing and
pricing are charged per gigabyte, per year, for all data that is managed
in the cloud.
