Plasmon Virtualizes Archive Layer

BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- Plasmon PLC (LSE:PLM), the trusted source in archiving solutions, today announced its intentions to virtualize the archive management layer to enable organizations to better manage data growth and reduce the cost and complexity of retaining and managing data over long periods of time.

Organizations are continuing to experience explosive data storage growth while facing new demands for data retention and disposition driven by e-discovery and corporate compliance regulations. By virtualizing the archive layer customers, including IT managers will be able to leverage best-in-class archive applications and storage technologies over the data lifecycle without incurring the cost and risk associated with future data migrations.

A leader and early innovator in the archive solutions market over the last two decades, Plasmon has helped thousands of IT customers protect their data while reducing the risk, total cost and complexity associated with actively archiving critical data storage,” said Steven Murphy, Chief Executive Officer, Plasmon. “Continuing in the tradition of innovation, Plasmon will deliver solutions that enable archives to become independent of the underlying storage devices and applications to help customers simplify the long term retention and disposition of data. By virtualizing the archive layer, we are providing customers with archive choices that allow them to choose the right architecture for their environment – options from best-in-class archive technologies integrated into one solution for the first time.”
