Pillar Intros Data De-Dupe

SAN JOSE, Calif. and NEW YORK -- Enterprises today are seeing rapid storage growth - both inside and outside of the data center posing a challenge to traditional data protection methodologies. In order to address these issues, Pillar Data Systems has expanded its strategic reseller relationship with FalconStor Software as well as its individual relationships with Data Domain, Diligent Technologies and Symantec to deliver a variety of data de-duplication capabilities. These strengthened relationships will enable better backup capabilities allowing companies to dramatically increase the overall efficiency of their data centers.

As a testament to the importance of data de-duplication for overall backup solutions, several analysts have recognized the vital role the technology will play in enterprises’ data protection strategies. Most recently, in an Enterprise Strategy Group report, analysts noted that data de-duplication is an ideal technique to optimize physical storage and bandwidth by using less of each to protect data. This reduces cost and capacity requirements, which translates as less bandwidth being required to move and copy that data across the WAN1.

“We realize that data de-duplication is the next step in the evolution of backup technology,” said Bob Maness, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, Pillar Data Systems. “By working with global leaders such as Data Domain, Diligent, FalconStor and Symantec, Pillar can now offer comprehensive data de-duplication solutions for organizations faced with an overload of data and not enough bandwidth to house and move it all.”
