Chicago, IL, June 01, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Digital storage is out of control. With the exponential increase in digital storage needs, by 2010 the total amount of data added annually could approach 988 exabytes, or nearly a trillion gigabytes. That’s enough data to fill a stack of books that reaches from the sun to Pluto and back (http://www.technewsworld.com/story/56141.html). In response, RevStor, LLC (http://www.revstor.com) has announced the release of SANwarePro and SANwareSB. The revolutionary new software allows businesses to securely store their data using existing networks of desktops, laptops and servers. As Russ Felker, RevStor’s founder puts it, “Working in outsourced IT for the past 7 years allowed me to witness the deficiencies in existing storage technologies. SANware is a product which provides businesses the required technologies to deal with ever increasing storage and security needs.”
Due to legislation such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA and other federal requirements, companies find that their dollars allocated for storage are rising much faster than in the recent past. Adding to the bloat are email storage, readily available backup for sensitive data and disaster recovery plans which necessitate the replication of important data. The solutions so far have entailed a combination of local storage arrays and servers, tape backup and online backup systems for remote storage. Implementing all these systems in a piecemeal fashion adds cost, downtime, and even new personnel just to keep your data secure.
Enter the SANware solution. RevStor’s SANware is a company’s complete storage solution, but at a fraction of the cost. The software-only solution installs on any number of networked computers and creates an aggregate pool of storage where data can be easily backed-up and retrieved. The self-healing, self-managing system gives time back to system administrators and ensures the continued availability of data under almost any circumstances. By using patent-pending chunking and encryption algorithms, SANware ensures that no single file is stored wholly on one computer. Thus, a laptop that has been misplaced (http://www.kxmd.com/t/social-security/121747.asp) will contain no usable data when not connected to the network. Harnessing the power of multiple computers has until now been restricted to custom solutions, and only affordable by large corporations. RevStor brings this technology, and all the benefits, to the small and medium-sized business in a cost-effective and easy to implement software product. Recent praise in CIOInsight magazine (http://www.cioinsight.com/article2/0,1540,2124270,00.asp) has attracted significant interest from both governmental agencies and private companies. “We’ve been blown away with the response to SANware,” says Felker, “companies are tired of dealing with complex, ineffective storage structures and are very happy to finally have a viable alternative.”
RevStor was founded 2 years ago by Russ Felker, a Chicago entrepreneur, and is based in Schaumburg, IL. SANware can be downloaded from www.revstor.com. The software comes with a 15-day free trial.
