SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- StoreVault, a NetApp (NASDAQ:NTAP) division, today introduced the new StoreVault S300 all-in-one storage solution for small and medium businesses (SMB). Todays announcement sets a new standard in SMB storage technology, with unprecedented features and capabilities at a cost that had previously been unavailable to customers in the SMB market segment.
Available immediately and priced starting under $3,000, the StoreVault S300 provides SMB customers with proven data center technology, including advanced security, scalability, data protection, and simplified data management, at a price point that is unmatched in the industry. Previously, competitive solutions required customers to purchase a mix of products to achieve the same level of functionality and capability that the StoreVault S300 provides.
It is clear that the explosive growth of data is creating headaches in data management, protection, and backup and recovery among enterprises and smaller companies alike, said Greg Schulz, founder and senior analyst, StorageIO. It's important for vendors to recognize that SMBs deal with the same storage-related headaches that require the same enterprise-level technology to meet their needs. The price point of the S300 will give smaller businesses access to technology that was previously out of their reach. NetApp StoreVault is on the right path to meeting the requirements of a broader base of SMB customers.
