Norwalk, CT (PressExposure) April 11, 2008 -- Phantom Data Systems today announced their VAR partnership with Plasmon, the top data storage and true archiving vendor based in the UK.
For more than 20 years Plasmon has been the trusted source for professional archive solutions with demanding commercial and public sector organizations worldwide. "Phantom Data Systems is pleased and equally excited to partner with Plasmon in delivering true storage and archival solutions to the enterprise and SMB space" said Alani Kuye, President and founder of Phantom Data Systems Inc. Plasmonâs UDO Archive Appliance and Enterprise Active Archive solutions provide unmatched data longevity and unquestioned record authenticity for the long-term access and preservation of valuable business information. Phantom Data Systems integration expertise across multiple platforms, coupled with their impending launch of the new PhantomStorÂ® email archive appliance will compliments this effort for Plasmon.
"We want a true archiving solution that will seamlessly integrate regardless of what environment, platform, source, destination or configuration we come across. If our clients can't be up and running in less than an hour, then we don't want it" continued Alani Kuye. Plasmon solutions enable companies to meet regulatory obligations and manage risk associated with record retention, while providing competitive advantage through fast access to archived data. "Most companies are very reactive! they call when they are in trouble or there is an immediate need. That's the only hang up we are encountering at the moment. However we have taken a very proactive approach by getting the word out and the response has been tremendous" said Alani Kuye.
The Plasmon UDO Archive Appliance is a network attached data archiving system. With a RAID-based front end, the UDO Archive Appliance offers fast access to storing and retrieving data. Data stored to the RAID is immediately copied to UDO to provide unmatched data protection and longevity. The UDO Archive Appliance is offered in one- to 19-TB configurations and requires no installation and minimal configuration. Preconfigured with storage management software, the Plasmon UDO Archive Appliance controls the migration of data to and from the fully-integrated UDO library. With policy-based retention of data on the disk cache, the least recently used data is purged based on watermarks. The software also manages pre-staging of data from optical back to the disk cache, ensures multiple, removable copies of data and the "immediate" archiving of all new data to UDO storage. The network interface is Gigabit Ethernet, providing support for Windows, LINUX, and UNIX environments.
