Storwize Moves Corporate Headquarters in Response to Rapid Adoption of its Cost-Saving Capacity Optimization Solutions


Los Gatos, Calif., November 18, 2008 – Storwize Inc., the leading provider of real-time capacity optimization solutions, today announced that it has relocated its corporate headquarters to a larger facility in Los Gatos, California. The move supports the company’s rapid growth and continued investment in sales, marketing, and support. Storwize solutions help organizations dramatically reduce costs by providing up to 15-times more capacity from their existing storage infrastructure, creating cost and operational benefits throughout the data lifecycle.

“Even with IT budgets down almost 30% over the past two years, organizations still have to support continued data growth without increasing cost, and they’re turning to capacity optimization as a solution,” said Peter Smails, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing at Storwize. “The phenomenal success we’ve experienced based upon corporations’ aggressive cost-saving measures necessitated our move to a larger facility to support our rapid growth. We felt that there was no better time to make the move to our new Los Gatos offices as we prepare to launch our recently announced enhanced STN-6000p series.”
