Data Storage Corporation and BlueArc Form Valuable Partnership to Deliver Increased Data Protection

Complete Technology Solutions Accelerate Backup and Recovery Times Ensuring Business Continuity for Customers

GARDEN CITY, NY--(Marketwire - May 5, 2011) - Data Storage Corporation (DSC), a provider of data protection and business continuity solutions, today announced that it has formed a beneficial relationship with BlueArc® Corporation, a leader in scalable, high-performance network storage. The companies will launch their partnership at the VMware Forum 2011 in New York on May 11. Together, they can provide comprehensive technology solutions, which enable organizations to ensure business continuity with accelerated data and system backup and recovery times.

"We are utilizing BlueArc's storage technology both in our primary, Westbury, New York, data center and as part of our other Business Continuity services to provide customers with SafeData DR and SafeData Vault solutions," said Matthew Grosso, EVP Technical Operations and Engineering at DSC. "BlueArc's high performance storage systems provide integration with virtualization technologies like VMware, using the industry's leading file system and consolidation ratio and the highest I/O operations per second performance. With BlueArc, we are able to provision storage as easily as we deploy virtual machines. BlueArc offers us greater scalability and capacity, which enables consolidation to eliminate 'rip and replace' or storage system sprawl."

"Through this relationship with DSC, organizations will have access to high performance backup and recovery solutions and services in a virtualized environment," said Bridget Warwick, senior VP of marketing and business development at BlueArc. "Our solutions are a great complement to DSC's data protection and recovery solutions. While we are able to simplify the storage and data management requirements for our clients, DSC is able to deliver comprehensive data protection services that ensure that their customer data and systems are protected and recoverable if a system failure of any kind occurs. It is a true win-win-win for our company, DSC and most importantly, for our clients."

  • Accelerated backup and disaster recovery
  • Best-in-class performance and high availability for hosted applications
