The joining of forces between PROMISE and Tarmin enables organizations to further their IT consolidation projects: improving performance, lowering storage and IT costs, reducing management complexity, and improving data security. Through this partnership, customers leverage Tarmin's automated policy-based management to archive and tier data across heterogeneous storage deployments to on-premise PROMISE RAID solutions, to cloud storage, or to both. The PROMISE and Tarmin solution integrates cloud and traditional storage into a single pool, provides non-disruptive data movement across all tiers of on-premise and cloud storage deployments, gives IT a single integrated view of all data, and delivers holistic policy management and security that extends across all data centers and cloud storage providers.

"The benefits that Tarmin's cloud archiving offers in substantial cost savings and flexible configuration dovetail perfectly with PROMISE," said Eric Herzog, vice president of Marketing for Tarmin. "Tarmin's cloud archiving platform seamlessly connects to heterogeneous on-premise and cloud-based storage, delivering our mutual customers transparent access to information; powerful e-discovery, search, and data retrieval; and massive scalability. The Tarmin-PROMISE combined cloud archiving solution dramatically enhances data and storage management, diminishes compliance and regulatory risks and substantially reduces storage and IT costs across the data center and the cloud."

"Today data is growing at an uncompromising rate," said Ray Bahar, vice president of Sales and Marketing, PROMISE Technology. "By deploying this combined solution organizations are better able to determine their storage requirements based on their business needs. This enables an organization to optimize its application performance by matching the application's data needs to its appropriate tier in the IT infrastructure -- making it easy for a business to address storage and retrieval in a way that's in synch with the business needs."
