Diligent Signs With Sun

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. -- Diligent Technologies Corporation, a leading provider of enterprise-class de-duplication and data protection solutions, today announced that it has entered into a global reseller agreement with Sun Microsystems to resell the ProtecTIER suite of solutions (enterprise and mid-range configurations) through both its direct sales teams and the channel.

Data de-duplication is arguably the hottest emerging storage technology and is reshaping the nature of data protection. Diligent’s ProtecTIER is the first and only proven de-duplication solution to meet the challenging demands of enterprise data centers. Diligent and Sun already have joint ProtecTIER customers – some with over 1 PB of physical storage under management.

"This is another big win for Diligent," says Heidi Biggar, analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group. "It is a further testament to the strength of the ProtecTIER solution in both midsize and especially large data centers where there have been some questions about the ability of de-duplication technologies in general to meet the rigors (in terms of both performance and reliability) of these types of environments."
