NetApp Intros StoreVault S550

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- NetApp (NASDAQ:NTAP - News) today unveiled the StoreVault S550, the latest addition to the StoreVault family of network storage appliances that is customized for the midmarket. Todays announcement further strengthens the StoreVault offering by providing one of the most complete and feature-rich packaging of enterprise storage technology solutions focused on helping manage and streamline IT tasks in growing businesses.

The StoreVault S550 is ideal for mid-size companies that are expanding and looking for their storage technology to grow with them. The S550 builds upon its predecessor, the StoreVault S500, with 12TB of storage capacity. Scalability is simple and allows customers to scale without disrupting their applications or users.

StoreVault is also announcing Microsoft® application integration for the StoreVault S550 and the StoreVault S500 with the introduction of SnapManager® for SQL Server™ StoreVault Edition software. This enables NetApp Snapshot™ technology to be applied to SQL Server data hosted on StoreVault, providing peace-of-mind security and dependability with the industry’s best implementation of point-in-time recovery with no performance impact.

“SnapManager for SQL Server and StoreVault has done wonders to make our storage process much more efficient and effective,” said Josh Huisken, IT manager, Intense Lighting. “The amount of time that it saves us when creating backups is pretty incredible. With our previous technology, it took at least a couple of hours to back up just five or six gigabytes of data. SnapManager for SQL Server has completely changed that, taking just seconds to process the same job. The time savings is crucial for the business and has allowed me to devote more time and resources to other important IT matters.”
