ViON Launches FortresStore, an Archive Appliance for Managing the Exponential Growth in Data

ViON Corporation, a market leader in the design, delivery and maintenance of mission-critical IT infrastructure solutions, announced today that it has launched a new active archive solution, FortresStore. FortresStore simplifies the management of unstructured data and lowers data center storage costs by consolidating disparate unstructured data stores into a consolidated, searchable repository.

FortresStore is a low cost, highly scalable archive solution that can be accessed by users from anywhere. It allows organizations to automatically centralize and manage file content and delivers seamless, integrated access to user files. FortresStore, powered by Commvault Software, has a rich set of capabilities that allow it to archive and protect files from virtually any location, on any device.

FortresStore addresses the challenge organizations face as the growth of unstructured data has outpaced the capabilities of traditional storage systems. IDC reports that file storage is growing at a rate of 75x over the next 6 years. To compound the problem of unstructured data growth, there have been growing demands to preserve and archive data for compliance, e-discovery and Big Data analytics.

FortresStore delivers a highly available, scale-out architecture that allows customers to add compute and capacity dynamically without interruption. It can scale from as little as 50 terabytes to multi-petabyte environments. It offers an ideal solution for multi-site architectures by leveraging data deduplication, compression and bandwidth throttling. This allows data consolidation across the wide area network. FortresStore also facilitates file server consolidation and migration.

“By moving unchanging or stale information to a purpose-built archive like FortresStore, organizations improve performance and free capacity in their production environment, while improving the access and usefulness of archive data,” Kevin Orr, vice president, Federal Area with Commvault, a leader in data protection and information management software.

“We are excited to bring FortresStore to the market and expand our longstanding relationship with Commvault,” said ViON president and CEO, Tom Frana. “Together, ViON and Commvault have been solving critical storage issues within government agencies for years and we look forward to delivering a solution that reduces costs and complexity while amplifying the value of data across multiple sectors through FortresStore.”
