ProStor Unveils Appliance

BOULDER, Colo. -- ProStor Systems, a leading developer of removable disk storage solutions, today announced the world's first
removable disk archive system for small and medium enterprises. Built
around market-leading RDXR removable disk technology, ProStor's new InfiniVaultT archive appliance provides organizations with an archiving solution that delivers a fast, secure and reliable archival storage platform for long-term data preservation, e-discovery and regulatory compliance in a single, integrated system.

By leveraging RDX removable disk technology, ProStor has created an easy-to-deploy archiving system that combines the performance and rapid retrieval of fixed-disk archive solutions with the unlimited capacity, scalability and disaster recovery protection of removable disk media, in an all-in-one design that is far more reliable than tape and much lower cost than fixed-disk archive systems. With its removable disk cartridges, InfiniVault provides safe off-site archival storage for up to 30 years.
Businesses and government agencies will save storage costs, simplify regulatory compliance management, and safely archive their information assets, such as email, electronic documents, graphics, x-rays, images, digital MRIs, photographs and videos, using InfiniVault's groundbreaking unified archive architecture. InfiniVault combines active archive and compliance intelligence with proven RDX removable disk to provide fast online access, scalable nearline retrieval and infinite offline storage in a single easy-to-use system. The embedded Archive Compliance Engine (ACE) features write-once data immutability, archive management, automated file retention policies, security, removable media management and automatic data protection.

"We chose ProStor's new archive appliance because we needed an archive solution that would help us reduce our storage costs and meet regulatory compliance in a simple-to-deploy system," said Dr. Matt Fleishman, partner and information officer of Radiology Imaging Associates. "We believe the InfiniVault, with its unique combination of archive management intelligence and fast, secure removable disk media, is the most complete archiving solution for our corporate needs."
