StorageTek FlexLine 600

The StorageTek FlexLine 600 Series storage system is a critical piece of the company's disk-to-disk-to-tape backup strategy. It recently announced its IntelliStore archive solution using FlexLine 600 Series as its internal disk platform. The system offers greater time between failures compared to conventional SATA-based architectures due to features such as advanced media error handling and ability to balance work loads. The FlexLine 600 storage system allows customers to reclaim primary storage capacity at a significant cost savings without sacrificing performance - critical for an effective data protection solution. The storage system can be deployed in traditional disk-to-disk backup because of its ease of management and the fact it leverages the latest advances in SATA media to store copies. It can also be the cornerstone for disk-to-disk-to-tape backup as a tape buffer, where both the disk and tape are used to store data protection copies. Other features include storage classes, RAID 6 protection and over-subscription. The product is distributed by ACA Pacific. RRP: From $62,000

The 4500 comes with software including snapshot capability, BakBone NetVault Workgroup edition for backup applications and virtual disk library (VDL) functions as well as client and server imaging software from Symantec. While supporting traditional NAS service, the Snap Server 4500 is also ideal for IP SAN, departmental storage, near-line storage, disk to disk backup and remote office servers.

FalconStor IPStor WORMLock

FalconStor's IPStor WORMLock appliance provides a cost-effective means for helping companies achieve compliance. It allows data archiving and retrieval based on a 'write once, read many' (WORM) paradigm using existing storage, offering an alternative to optical storage and proprietary specialised disk arrays. A retention time policy can be configured for each WORMLock volume. Files are locked for the prescribed duration, after which they can be unlocked. To enforce data integrity, it optionally attaches a hidden digital signature to identify each file and it performs periodic checks to detect any malicious attempt to alter file contents. The product is distributed by IDS-G, T Data and FalconStor. RRP: From $6000

Commvault QiNetix DataArchiver

CommVault's QiNetix DataArchiver offers data management and accessibility for archived Microsoft Exchange email messages and attachments that are preserved for regulatory data retention compliance. It uses indexing and data movement capabilities to ensure fixed data is protected against alteration or loss. Users can enforce policy-based actions across the entire archive so data can be automatically retained, managed and retrieved. Media management automates the storage process and allows for fast data retrieval, the company said. To add an extra level of protection, DataArchiver provides disaster recovery redundancy with single or mixed media formats. The product is distributed by ACA Pacific, Digital Tape Solutions, Independent Data Solutions Group and Hitachi Data Systems. RRP: From $7900
