San Francisco, California – (The Hosting News) – August 29, 2006 – Enterprise data protection solutions provider, Diligent Technologies, has entered into a strategic partnership with IT consulting and engineering firm, Nth Generation, to provide its clients with Diligent’s ProtecTIER with HyperFactor, VTF Open and VTF Mainframe.
Rich Baldwin, President and CEO of Nth Generation explained, ”As new back-up technologies, such as data de-duplication, are being introduced into the storage landscape, we looked to partner with the company that is at the forefront of the market. By partnering with Diligent, we strengthen our position as a trusted advisor to our enterprise clients. Integrating their ProtecTIER platform, with its HyperFactor technology, into our storage offering, allows us to provide customers with the best method available to reduce required backup disk storage capacity.”
According to the company, ProtecTIER is the first true enterprise-class disk-based data protection solution that enables customers to reduce their required backup disk storage capacity by up to 25 times or more, while ingesting backup data in-line at rates greater than 200 MB/s enabling electronic replication for geographic protection and scaling up to 1 PB of physical disk-storage. Powered by HyperFactor, the industry leading data de-duplication technology, ProtecTIER enables enterprises to eliminate redundant data resulting in a large-scale reduction in the amount and cost of physical storage required, thus rendering disk-storage economically viable for backup restore and archive.
VTF Open is a scalable Virtual Tape Library software, designed to be easy to implement, providing 2:1 compression, reducing storage needs by half. The software, server and disk storage system create a virtual tape solution that appears to the backup application as a real tape library. VTF Mainframe is a software solution that virtualizes disk as tape on mainframes, and solves performance, scalability and reliability problems that, according to the company, others in the industry do not address.
Doron Kempel, Chairman and CEO of Diligent Technologies added, ”Partnering with Nth Generation, a leading provider for implementing data protection solutions, enhances Diligent’s ability to deliver our best-in-class data protection solutions to the enterprise. Our solutions, including ProtecTIER with HyperFactor, provide Nth Generation’s clients with the ability to store increased volumes of data using significantly less disk, lowering costs and increasing reliability and availability.”
