New versions of award-winning products add greater capacity, up to 100x faster data recovery and 60 to 80 percent lower TCO across larger workloads and more applications

Santa Clara, CA, April 3, 2012 –/– StorSimple today announced the immediate availability of its extended family of cloud-integrated enterprise storage products.

The new StorSimple 5020, 5520, 7020 and 7520 appliances with software version 2.0 support larger enterprise workloads and data sets with an increased capacity amount of up to 100TB of usable local storage. Performance enhancements in cloud data management provide up to 100x faster cloud-based disaster recovery compared to traditional backup in the cloud. These new capabilities allow customers to use StorSimple to reduce storage TCO by 60 to 80 percent and further drive cloud-integrated enterprise storage to mainstream use cases.

Cloud-integrated enterprise storage is an emerging category of storage solution that consolidates primary,archive, backup and disaster recovery through seamless integration with the cloud. By combining SAN storage and cloud data management on an enterprise-class platform, these appliances enable new levels of speed, simplicity and reliability for backup and recovery while reducing both primary and data protection costs.

“A wide range of Fortune 1000 enterprises across verticals like retail, oil and gas, manufacturing, services, consumer goods, healthcare and banking as well as government customers have done their first storage deployments on public clouds using StorSimple,” said Ursheet Parikh, StorSimple co-founder and CEO. “For these customers, the choice comes down to continuing status quo or working to leverage the cloud, and this disruption has led to the emergence of the cloud-integrated enterprise storage market segment. We are leading this disruption with our award-winning products that integrate the cloud with enterprise storage infrastructure and processes.”

“The StorSimple solution automatically stores inactive data and snapshots from our SAN in the cloud, which has made a huge difference in the amount of time we spend managing storage,” said Luke Gracie director of information technology at InventHelp, “The cost is comparable to what you’d spend for a traditional SAN array, but you get additional features such as deduplication, compression, tiering and cloud-based disaster recovery – all with a single system.”

The second-generation of StorSimple appliances, the 5020, 5520, 7020 and 7520, include a number of important new capabilities in the following areas:

Higher Local Capacity and Greater Performance
The new appliances provide up to 100TB of usable local storage, and include higher capacity controllers with NVRAM support, along with software optimizations that offer an order of magnitude performance increase over previous versions and increased local storage capacity with enterprise SSD and SAS. As a result, customers can leverage cloud-integrated enterprise storage across larger workloads and a broader range of applications.

Cloud Data Management
StorSimple enables record-breaking times for application data recovery from cloud storage – up to 100TB of data per day with a single StorSimple appliance over a 50Mbps WAN link. In contrast, traditional cloud-based backup would take over 90 days to restore 100TB of data, while using twice the bandwidth (100Mbps). When coupled with StorSimple’s ability to store data in application-level (vs. backup) format, these performance improvements enable enterprises to confidently leverage the cloud for backup and restoring primary business data.

To improve customers’ cloud resiliency and vendor diversification, StorSimple appliances now can store complete sets of data across two different cloud providers or regional locations. As a result, customers can use one provider or geographic location for primary cloud storage and another for backup – using a single StorSimple appliance and the CloudClone™ feature. Expanded cloud provider support now includes storage services from Google, HP and Rackspace, as well as Amazon’s Reduced Redundancy Storage (RRS).

Enterprise-class Platform
StorSimple’s new appliances include an expanded set enterprise-level operational and management capabilities. To maximize application availability, customers have the ability to non-disruptively upgrade from 1.0 to 2.0 system software – allowing applications and business processes to run continuously while StorSimple appliances are being updated. IT teams gain additional benefit through reduced management and planning time required for system updates.

StorSimple 5020 and 7020 appliances with software version 2.0 have already achieved VMware Ready certification and the 5520 and 7520 are expected to achieve the same certification in Q2 2012.

Pricing and Availability
The StorSimple 5020, 5520, 7020 and 7520 appliances are available immediately. Pricing starts at $40,000.
