KOM Networks announces First Storage Management Solution for Windows 2000

Ottawa, ON Canada – November 25, 1999

KOM Networks the industry's leading enterprise-class storage management software developer for NT, UNIX and VMS, today revealed details of its next version of KOM Networks OptiStorm for Windows 2000 which is designed to support both Microsoft's Windows 2000 and Windows NT.

This new version offers complete data security for the Windows 2000 based STORAGE SOLUTIONS as well as the new Windows 2000 file system changes that include disk quotas, encrypted files, Distributed File System, hierarchal storage management, Volume Mount Points, Directory Junctions and Remote Storage devices. In addition to the support of Microsoft's new features in Windows 2000, KOM Networks OptiStorm incorporates updated disaster recovery, Clustering, Removable Storage Management integration and new fault-tolerant capabilities.

Why is clustering important? Clustering protects against applications and hardware failures. Windows 2000 Advanced and Datacenter Servers integrate Microsoft Cluster Services to deliver higher levels of service and availability. Microsoft Cluster Services monitors the health of standard applications and services, and can automatically recover mission-critical data and applications from many common types of failure. A graphical management console lets administrators visually monitor the status of all resources in the cluster and move workloads around with simple point-and-click actions.

To support Microsoft Windows 2000, OptiStorm transparently protects Volume Mount Points and Directory Junctions by traversing files through the disk or directory path to securely migrate data that may physically reside on local or remote storage devices. As the developer of both the backup and Remote Storage Management drivers for Windows 2000, KOM Networks has developed OptiStorm to intelligently migrate data, providing complete storage management and disaster recovery for Windows 2000 based storage devices.

"Our new enhancements to OptiStorm for Windows 2000 include disaster recovery, clustering and new fault tolerant capabilities. As the pioneers of the Storage management industry we feel it necessary to ensure our clients have leading edge storage solutions for today and tomorrow" stated Kamel Shaath, Vice President of Development for KOM Networks.


Information on availability and pricing will be announced during AIIM 2000.
