UltraStor iSCSI & FC Arrays Now Support WORM Storage with KOMpliance
Enhance Technology and KOM Networks to Pair UltraStor™ with KOMpliance™ Storage Gateway
Santa Fe Springs, Calif., and Ottawa, ON – March 13, 2012 – KOM Software™ creator and world leading provider of storage management solutions for secure archiving, compliant data protection and retention and Enhance Technology, a designer & manufacturer of enterprise and SMB storage systems and solutions today announce a technology partnership to drive down the costs of storage and compliance for enterprises large and small.
“The dominant conversation in businesses today is how to operate in these uncertain economic times. Cost savings and compliance are the top concerns," says Daniel Tai, CEO, Enhance Technology. “Compliance and its impact on stored information is an ever-present issue for customers. Our partnership with KOM Networks will give customers a way to easily meet compliance requirements with fixed content WORM volumes on Enhance iSCSI and FC SAN arrays. It will offer customers a faster, less capital intensive route to building a long-term storage solution for managing, securing and protecting archive content."
The KOMpliance SAN Gateway deployed with UltraStor ES iSCSI & FC SANs provides customers with data replication, data protection, flexibility, scalability and maximum security when storing business-critical data assets. KOMpliance gives businesses the ability to comply with regulatory and best-practices records-retention requirements by creating tamper-proof WORM volumes on Enhance Technology storage systems, thereby preventing critical files from being altered or deleted before their specified retention dates.
By combining the ease-of-use and quick deployment of KOMpliance with UltraStor, KOM Networks and Enhance Technology are able to deliver an ideal solution for regulated archival storage at a more affordable price. This approach leverages the low cost, performance and scalability of Hard Disk storage arrays to drive down the cost of compliant storage for businesses in highly regulated industries. Healthcare, financial, government, life sciences, legal and publicly traded organizations can now easily and cost-effectively satisfy stringent regulatory retention requirements for critical information.
“Unrelenting data growth, long-term data retention, regulatory compliance along with the need for greater cost reductions and storage consolidation is driving the search for comprehensive scalable archive solutions,” says Taher Shaath, CEO, KOM Networks. “Our approach of simplifying archived data storage compliance and making it more affordable for enterprises to address their requirements complements Enhance Technology’s UltraStor offerings in powerful storage management, flexibility and scalability. We are excited to join with them to provide an end-to-end information lifecycle management and compliant storage solution that meets the needs of the enterprise today and well into the future.”
