DCIG winner rolls out new entry-level backup appliances and strengthens its high-performing appliances
COLORADO SPRINGS –– On the heels of taking the top spot in analyst firm DCIG’s 2012 Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide, STORServer®, the leading provider of proven data backup solutions for the mid-market, today announces new and updated models of its enterprise, entry-level and Instant Restore appliance lines.
STORServer Enterprise Backup Appliances 3100, 2100, 1100 and 800 recently took four out of five top positions in the DCIG 2012 Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide. DCIG evaluated 66 products and felt that no other backup appliance came close to the EBA3100, placing it in a category of its own.
New since the Sept. 5 DCIG rankings are three appliance updates for STORServer’s certified resellers:
Starting pricing includes STORServer’s first sub $10,000 Backup Appliance with the BA601 MSRP set at $9,898. The BA701 pricing begins at $14,499.
The Enterprise Backup Appliance lines, which include full data deduplication (both target and source) across all models, start at $18,999 for the EBA802, $29,919 for the EBA1202, $53,919 for the EBA2202 and a starting price for what the UK’s The Register calls the “backup beast,” or the EBA3202, at $110,180.
Pricing does not include licensing options, further disk or tape storage or the customer’s desired disaster recovery options. Models are sized for customers as one appliance solutions. Except for the largest environments, customers need only price one automated easy-to-use appliance for their environments, putting STORServer’s total price for data protection at a cost-effective advantage over other product implementations.
“We’re excited to unveil our new models that offer an even more robust set of features, automation and simplification for our customers,” said Bill Smoldt, president and CEO of STORServer. “We will continue working closely with IBM to focus on the enterprise quality of our appliances and offer an appliance for every budget and environment.”
STORServer offers a complete suite of enterprise backup appliances, plus software and services for IBM TSM customers that solve today’s backup, archive and disaster recovery challenges. The company’s original appliance approach to data protection is distributed through a certified reseller channel of more than 200 sales organizations.
