Simplified Storage Environment Replaces SAN, Reduces Data Recovery Times by 90 Percent

NATICK, MA – April 8, 2014 — / — TwinStrata, an innovator in cloud-integrated storage solutions, today announced that its CloudArray cloud-integrated software is driving Plug Power’s modernized storage environment, resulting in simplified management and improved disaster recovery.

CloudArray has replaced Plug Power’s traditional tape library and existing storage area network (SAN) with a physical appliance for local capacity backed by unlimited cloud storage. The new CloudArray appliance comprehensively addresses the company’s storage requirements, serving as a primary file share for its unstructured data, a repository for enterprise resource planning (ERP) data and a target for its backup data.

As a result, the company expects to decrease its data recovery time by approximately 90 percent, has automated its backup processes and is provided stronger offsite data protection through cloud replication.

TwinStrata finds that customers rely on traditional, but often inefficient, tape backup systems. When organizations need to recover backups stored offsite, it can take 4-5 days to identify the tape, recover it, catalog it, read it and then restore the data.

John Nolan, manager of information systems, Plug Power, said:

  • “With CloudArray, we have one simple, elegant solution to all of our old storage problems. I don’t have to worry about the amount of time we’re spending on storage tasks, and I don’t have to worry about whether a new SAN or DR requirement is going to blow my budget out of the water.”

Nicos Vekiarides, CEO of TwinStrata, said:

  • “Plug Power is like many companies that are dealing with the continuous upgrade cycles of storage systems nearing end-of-life. At the same, they’re trying to do more with less – get as much storage as they need and improve offsite data protection and disaster recovery, but also spend less than their traditional storage systems. With CloudArray, they can address all of these issues simultaneously.”
