Chi Adds PivotStor

CLEVELAND -- Chi Corporation (, a national Storage Solutions Provider specializing in data storage, backup, and disaster recovery has formed a strategic alliance with PivotStor and will market the company's data protection products to its nationwide customer base.

Headquartered in Cleveland, OH, Chi said it will resell both PivotStor's innovative EP-Series of email management appliances and its AP-Series of tape automation libraries to its customers.

Founded by storage industry veterans with more than two centuries of collective experience at companies such as Quantum, Overland Data, Certance, BakBone and more, PivotStor is focused on delivering a complete suite of data protection solutions that cost-effectively solve real customer problems.

"PivotStor's product set is impressive, but its management team truly appealed to us as partners we can trust over the long haul," said Greg Knierieman, Chi's vice president. "PivotStor has assembled a team of known industry veterans who understand the needs of service providers, integrators and reseller such as Chi. Their familiarity with, and commitment to the channel is a welcome alternative in today's market, where reduced margins and broken promises seem to be the rule rather than the exception."
