Englewood, CO, United States, 2012/05/30 - The line of DSI300 virtual tape appliances provides fast, reliable data backup and recovery without the complexity and high maintenance costs associated with traditional tape backup systems - DynamicSolutions.com.
Dynamic Solutions International, LLC (DSI), today announced a new suite of Virtual Tape Appliances designed for extreme reliability, performance and automation of data storage. The family of DSI300 virtual tape solutions is changing the way financial intuitions, mid-size credit unions, medical billing companies, investment firms and others protect and prepare critical enterprise data.
DSI’s virtual tape appliances provide high performance backups and compliance assurance at a fraction of the cost of traditional tape solutions and with less time and maintenance required than traditional tape systems. The suite of DSI virtual tape library solutions range from entry level (DSI300-VV8) and mid-range (DSI300-M16) to the most robust (DSI300-EV0) appliance built for customers with extensive capacity needs. DSI300-EV0 has the largest storage and is an ideal solution for customers who require efficient retrieval and restore data options and need to meet legal data storage quotas. Each solution adapts to customers’ existing IT environment and reduces costs by shrinking the need for physical tape. Increased flexibility to expand storage capacity, enhanced security features, as well as reporting and searching capabilities make DSI virtual tape solutions the proven alternative.
As a data storage technology innovator, DSI continues to give enterprises greater security and added flexibility in data recovery and storage capacity. The suite of DSI300 solutions allows businesses of any size to be more efficient, secure and competitive while lowering costs. The new DSI solution set uses FalconStor® Virtual Tape Library (VTL) as the VTL appliance engine. FalconStor VTL is the industry’s market-leading virtual tape solution, unmatched in performance and scalability.
“DSI and FalconStor have been strong partners for a number of years, so now DSI is offering a third generation of virtual tape appliances based on FalconStor VTL,” said Bernie Wu, vice president of business development for FalconStor. “DSI continues to add tremendous value to FalconStor’s VTL technology, and they have been instrumental in addressing mainframe clients’ needs with their innovative and cost-effective solutions.”
Today’s enterprise data centers manage large heterogeneous environments, often with hundreds of servers running various operating systems and applications, driving petabytes of data. The DSI300 VTL family reduces the burden placed on crucial backup and recovery operations, streamlining the complexity and improving time to access data.
In the mainframe computing environment, having an integrated end-to-end solution brings many benefits to customers. DSI offers its own host-based software for tape management and library management across an enterprise in select mainframe environments. The DSI VTL is also integrated with Formula Consultants Inc’s (FCI) STAR-1100 tape management, and FCI’s STAR Library Manager offering and B&L Associates MCP software offerings. Additionally, the DSI9000 family can support high-availability pairs with failover capability for highly demanding enterprises, or a single appliance for the most modest needs.
“In today’s IT environment there are multiple pressures on users,” said Sean Phillips, vice president of storage sales for DSI. “From traditional issues like backup window and budget to ever more complex regulatory compliance issues, the enterprise storage environment is extremely challenging. This new set of DSI virtual tape library offerings is designed to help in all of these areas. The latest DSI300 value line offering makes virtual tape available close to the price point of a small physical tape solution – yet it has so many advantages, while the addition of a storage array with data-at-rest-encryption addresses PCI DSS rules. The evolution of DSI’s VTLs supports our commitment to offer innovative storage solutions for data backup and recovery at disk drive speed.”
