Idealstor’s next generation SAS interface removable storage shrinks backup window for businesses with large amounts of data

AUSTIN, TX – November 07, 2014 — / — Idealstor releases the first removable disk-based storage system using the SAS interface. This provides faster, more reliable and scalable data storage for backup archiving and disaster recovery.

Using SAS helps improve the already impressive speeds of the Idealstor product portfolio of backup systems, which includes the Teralyte, Backup Appliance and Write Once Read Many Appliance (WORM). It doubles the speed of the previous generation’s system from 3Gb/s to up to 6Gb/s.

“All IT Administrators want their data backup and recovery to be faster,” said Nandan Arora, chief technology officer at Idealstor. “Our existing customers, who are used to working directly with removable disks for their backup, will appreciate the speed the new SAS controller brings. When compared to the first generation of hardware, which used PATA drives, this fifth generation of systems is so much faster. Customers using tape or cloud backup will be amazed at how quickly the Idealstor system will back up their data while giving them scalability and flexibility.”

The systems can scale to 48TB of raw data and with removable disks provide unlimited storage to meet compliance requirements and retention policies.

With the growth of data being explosive, the need for a quicker method to store that data is a necessity. Businesses that continue to use tape will no longer experience the associated headaches or costs of continued maintenance related to tape. The removable disk solution is more cost effective than tape. With the ability to do data deduplication, more data can be stored on a disk than can be stored on tape. The Idealstor solution makes tape obsolete.

“You can store an astronomical amount of data on a disk, especially with data deduplication. It doesn’t require maintenance or calibration,” continued Arora. “With our removable SAS interface solution, customers receive the ability to backup more data and complete that backup faster than ever before.”

Offering a complete solution, which includes backup software as well as hardware that now features SAS interface, Idealstor continues the tradition of customer-first thought leadership for the fastest, most reliable and secure data storage solution.
