STORServer’s new Appliance Wizard streamlines shopping process for data backup buyers

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Aug. 05, 2013)

STORServer®, the leading provider of proven data backup solutions for the mid-market, announces today the launch of its new online Appliance Wizard, which helps data protection shoppers determine which STORServer Appliance solution and associated products and services best fit their backup environment and business goals.

“The Appliance Wizard allows customers to find out about our solutions, while potentially uncovering some aspects of a backup solution that had not been thought of prior,” said Bill Smoldt, president of STORServer. “Simply put, the tool allows customers to get a better handle on their needs and provides a great starting point for considering any data protection solution.”

All STORServer Appliance solutions can be customized to suit any environment and are:

  • Cross-platform and network friendly
  • Managed through a centralized console
  • Easy for anyone to learn and use

The Appliance Wizard, available at https://storserver.com/appliance-wizard/, takes backup shoppers through a series of questions about their data environment. Once all questions are answered, the tool automatically shares the results of the brief survey, including:

  • The amount of data you need to back up
  • The appropriate-sized solution for your environment
  • Necessary storage requirements
  • What’s needed to comply with federal regulations, such as SOX and HIPPA
  • Disaster recovery needs
  • Necessary backup for virtual machines and storage area networks
  • Budget requirements

Built on TSM, STORServer offers a complete suite of enterprise backup appliances, software and services that solve today’s backup, archive and disaster recovery challenges. STORServer EBA 3100, 2100, 1100 and 800 recently took four out of five top positions in the DCIG 2012 Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide. After evaluating 66 products, DCIG felt that no other backup appliance came close to the EBA3100, placing it in a category of its own.
