TORONTO -- PlateSpin Ltd. today announced the general availability of PlateSpin Forge, an innovative disaster recovery hardware appliance for cost-effectively protecting and rapidly recovering server workloads in the data center. Using VMware infrastructure as a foundation for the solution, each PlateSpin Forge appliance harnesses the power of PlateSpins workload portability technology to provide out-of-the-box protection for up to 25 physical or virtual workloads. All necessary hardware, storage, applications and virtualization technology are pre-packaged and ready to go, dramatically reducing the time and effort required to deploy, configure and test a disaster recovery solution.

Since PlateSpin Forge was first announced in early December 2007, the solution has been deployed and tested hands-on by a select number of customers and partners as part of the PlateSpin Forge Early Access Program (EAP).

“The early response from the market has been extremely encouraging,” said PlateSpin founder and CEO Stephen Pollack. “Users have praised the recovery appliance’s rich feature set and unique combination of ease-of-use and affordability. We’re particularly thrilled to see existing customers such as Greenhill & Co. adopting PlateSpin Forge and extending their use of our technology to address a variety of challenges in their data centers.”
