ProStor Systems Announces General Availability of InfiniVault Archive Appliance Family

BOULDER, Colo. – Feb. 20, 2008 – ProStor Systems, a leading developer of removable disk storage solutions for data protection and archive applications, today announced general availability of its InfiniVault™ archive appliance, the world’s first removable disk archive solution using the company’s market-leading RDX® removable disk technology. The InfiniVault product family is sold by a network of high-value resellers throughout North America.

Recently named a Product of the Year bronze winner in the “Backup and Disaster Recovery” category of the 2007 SearchStorage.com Products of the Year competition, ProStor’s InfiniVault provides customers with a digital archive and compliance solution that reduces storage costs by combining long-term data retention, regulatory compliance, automated data archiving and disaster recovery protection in a single, easy-to-use appliance. The InfiniVault product family is available in configurations designed for use in small and mid-sized enterprises.

“We have been pleased with the deployment of ProStor’s InfiniVault into our Georgia data center,” said Steve Calderoni, director of IT at Market Force Information, a leading global customer experience information and insights company. “We determined

that 70 percent of our mystery shopping receipts could be immediately archived to
InfiniVault, helping us streamline our operations, optimize client services and meet legal and e-discovery requests that might arise.”

The core functionality built into the InfiniVault archive appliance makes it ideal for regulatory compliance. ProStor’s integrated Archive Compliance Engine provides a complete audit trail for every file to create a chain of custody report, while content addressable storage functionality verifies all content to ensure the integrity of the data. The combination of flexible retention management, WORM throughout the system for unalterable files, data encryption to meet privacy requirements and digital “shredding” for secure file deletion makes the InfiniVault a simple, automated compliance solution for most government regulations. Additionally, the rapid file search and recovery enabled by the RDX removable disk technology meets the requirements of Federal Rules of Civil Procedures in legal holds and e-discovery. Privacy is assured with InfiniVault managing all encryption keys associated with each individual file.

“We designed the InfiniVault as a fast, secure and reliable archival storage platform for long-term data preservation that also helps businesses meet regulatory compliance within a single, integrated system,” said Steve Georgis, CEO and president of ProStor Systems. “By harnessing the benefits of a fixed-disk archive solution with that of removable media, we offer users the best of both worlds – ultimate performance, rapid retrieval, unlimited scalability and a preferred price point.”

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…

A Collection of Threnodies : Part 1

Whale Fall
-----------------

Dress me up in my new threads
clasp my greasy palms
grease my hair
I'm ready for the fall


Watch at all the decadence
watching the avalanche
I'm slipping down
losing my buoyancy


What's become of us
where have we come
this far, this close
close to the doors


I hear them, sublimal chants
I'm on the run
I race through the human sea
I am the king!


I'm the slave
to my own undoings
I'm the jester in my courtyard
We jest as we run


We're strolling on that thin rope
we grope as we rope
we're true heros
we're the survivors


we're the scavengers
we're the friends
we're the lovers
we're the unbred


Soon awaiting the fall
we're lurking on us
we're osedaxing us
we're soon going to be done
we'll soon be arrested
