Digi-Data, FilesX in OEM Deal

COLUMBIA, Md. -- Digi-Data Corporation, a leading manufacturer of high performance storage systems and RAID controllers for large digital archives, utility storage and data protection, and FilesX, a leading provider of continuous, lights-out” data protection and recovery solutions for remote offices, announce an agreement to provide joint solutions. Digi-Data will install, integrate and support the FilesX adaptive data protection software on the Digi-Data continuous data protection (CDP) appliance.

The partnership will make the CDP appliance quick and easy for customers to set up, running within minutes of initial set-up. The Digi-Data CDP/FilesX solution is ideal for customers consolidating backup infrastructure, hosting their own email or operating critical databases in need of up-to-the-minute protection, as well as for multi-site businesses that are interested in remote office backup for data recovery.

“We chose the FilesX product because it provides block-based continuous data protection functionality, as well as easily configurable data management services like scheduled replication,” explains Dennis Cindrich, president and CEO of Digi-Data.

Digi-Data’s CDP appliance works with the FilesX software to improve recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO). The appliance also lowers systems and labor costs through unique features like Xpress Mount® and Xpress Restore®.

“FilesX is well-known for providing fast and easy data recovery solutions for business-critical applications,” states Bob Kelly, director of business development at FilesX. “We are very happy to be working with Digi-Data to provide customers with a fully-integrated and easily implemented and managed solution for a wide range of data protection and recovery challenges.”
