New models meet customer demand for a smaller appliance with solid-state drives and a smaller CommVault Expansion System
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (March 17, 2014) – STORServer®, a leading provider of proven data backup solutions, today announces the launch of a second Entry-Level Backup Appliance, the BA641-CV, (BA641-CV), and a new “Small” CommVault® Expansion System (EBA-EXPSM-CV). Both of the new systems are powered by CommVault.
BA641-CV is an upgraded version of the BA601-CV adding 256 gigabytes of two RAID-1 “value” class solid-state drives (SSDs). It is also upgraded to front plane hot swappable disks and comes with a faster processor. The net result is a cost savings for customer sites with up to 10 terabytes (TBs) of Front-End Terabyte (FET) capacity who would otherwise have to purchase the larger 20 TB FET EBA802-CV.
The EBA-EXPSM-CV introduces a new Expansion System that also offers a smaller footprint for Media Agent deployments at 10 TBs of FET. Called the Small CommVault Expansion System, this server provides convenience for customers with multiple Expansion System sites who need flexibility for remote sites or departments in the sub-10 TB range.
In addition to the new Expansion System offering, all Expansion Systems do not include installation. This allows customers the option to purchase installation separately. For multi Expansion System deployments, customers can purchase just one Expansion System installation and add the rest on their own.
“The development of these two new models comes in large part due to customer demand,” said Bill Smoldt, president and CEO of STORServer. “We are constantly making changes and improvements to our backup appliances to meet the needs of our diverse customer environments.”
Powered by TSM and CommVault, STORServer offers a complete suite of enterprise backup appliances, software and services that solve today’s backup, archive and disaster recovery challenges.
