Networks Demonstrates StealthWorx™ Storage Virtualization Software at Storage Networking World
Virtual Volumes Capable of Storing Up To 500 Petabytes of Information
KOM Showcasing StealthWorx™ at Storage Networking World, the world's largest gathering of storage networking professionals in Palm Desert April 09 to 11
Ottawa, ON Canada – April 02, 2001
KOM Software, Inc., announced today that it is showcasing its first-of-its-kind software solution for technology-neutral storage virtualization at Storage Networking World Spring 2001, April 09 – 11 in Palm Desert, California. StealthWorx™ allows organizations to seamlessly integrate multiple data storage devices, regardless of interface or vendor, across an entire network into one homogeneous virtual storage space.
StealthWorx™ eliminates the complexity of deciding when, where and how data should be stored. Its file lifecycle management function lets companies create the right storage space for their data by allowing them to assign storage policies and scheduled maintenance. That means crucial data files can be placed in easy-to-access locations and standard operations such as file movement or deletion can be programmed to occur on a scheduled basis. This process eliminates the need for human intervention by network administrators, reducing the chance of error or accidental deletion. Crucial data files will always be where they are supposed to be at the right time.
"We are excited about showcasing StealthWorx™ at Storage Networking World. We will demonstrate how our software is complimentary with hardware and software of other leading virtualization companies to provide an overall storage strategy to customers. The companies we are partnering with offer innovative and complete solutions providing total data integrity and manageability for the end user," said Jeffrey Dale, KOM Software President. "With StealthWorx™ managing their data, organizations will be able to more efficiently organize their storage space. Virtualization technology is revolutionizing the way enterprises think of storage."
In visual terms, 500 petabytes is representative of over one trillion average-sized novels, or enough stacked novels to reach the moon 57 times. Envision having this stack of novels and then asking an employee to dig out your favourite one. Conceivably it could take days, even weeks to find.
The StealthWorx™ virtual storage management solution can create order out of chaos and locate a companies' critical data in a matter of seconds, while managing numerous virtual volumes of up to 500 petabytes at the same time.
The StealthWorx™ virtualization software is ideal for data intensive environments such as healthcare, financial institutions, transportation, manufacturing, and communications organizations.
For example, all healthcare organizations in the United States are legislated to maintain complete medical records on all patients in accordance with federal and state laws. While the number of years varies by state, the average required storage period is seven years, in case of malpractice liability and to ensure quality patient care. With StealthWorx™ such institutions can gain complete control over their data management and storage, and can count on ample space and seamless adaptability for years to come.
