Woodcliff Lake, N.J. — Syncsort Incorporated, a leading provider of high performance data warehousing software, announced the official certification of Backup Express, it’s enterprise-wide backup and restore solution, on the latest StorageTek library and tape technologies.
Backup Express is now certified on StorageTek’s new L700 and L180 tape libraries, offering high-end capacity and performance as well as SAN connectivity. In addition, Backup Express is now certified with both the 9840 and 9840FC Fibre Channel enabled tape drives, providing high-speed access, high storage density and Fibre Channel connectivity to fully exploit the latest SAN technologies.
“The combination of StorageTek’s newest libraries and tape drives gives users unsurpassed data availability and protection,” says Vic Werner, director of marketing at Syncsort. “The speed and storage capacity of the 9840s as well as their mid-tape mount give customers the access they need along with the speed and reliability they demand.”
Combining Backup Express with StorageTek’s libraries will allow users great flexibility in backing up their environment. With Backup Express’ SAN Resource Sharing (SRS), drives in the library are dynamically allocated and deallocated as they are needed, helping to leverage the hardware investment while providing the greatest access to data.
