IceWEB Government Channel Receives Major Order for Redundant Multi-Tier Virtual Data Center and Cloud Storage From Frederick County, Maryland

STERLING, VA--(Marketwire - Mar 14, 2012) - IceWEB, Inc. (OTCBB: IWEB), www.IceWEB.com, a leading provider of Unified Data Storage appliances for cloud and virtual environments, announced that its government channel group has received a major order from Frederick County, Maryland for IceWEB 6000 Unified Data Storage Systems for highly redundant tier 1 primary and secondary storage across multiple locations for high availability, disaster recovery and continuity of operations.

The IceWEB unified data storage system that Frederick County selected includes the following capabilities for the County's mission-critical applications:

  • Maximum performance SSD and 15k SAS drives for tier 1 application storage using IceWEB's IceCAP™ Cache Acceleration Protocol for MS Exchange, SQL Database and virtual desktop deployments
  • Secondary storage tier in the data center for VMWare virtual machines, NAS shares for unstructured data, and backup snapshots
  • Replication to highly redundant IceWEB 6000 systems at a secondary location for disaster recovery and continuity of operations
  • Data protection via mirroring and snapshots, in addition to thin provisioning, compression and deduplication and automated storage tiering managed through a single pane of glass using IceWEB's IceSTORM Operating System
  • Single, unified platform for the County's block and file data across FC, iSCSI, NFS, CIFS, FTP, HTTP, WebDAV and NDMP protocols.

"More often than ever, we're seeing government customers such as Frederick County Maryland opt for the performance, features and reliability they absolutely require, without adding unnecessary complexity to an already complex virtual and cloud data center," said Mr. Dale Foster, President of Promark Technology, IceWEB's Distribution partner for this procurement. "IceWEB's longstanding, solid reputation for quality in highly-sensitive public sector data centers combined with the company's incredibly robust unified storage offerings at a competitive price make it difficult for smart government CIOs to choose anything else."

"Coming straight off the heels of a steady stream of sizeable orders from mid-to-large commercial and public sector customers, today's announcement is the next note in IceWEB's symphony playing to a market segment long left unserved by the cast of characters comprised of big, expensive storage vendors," said Steven Toole, Chief Marketing Officer at IceWEB. "County government organizations must have zero tolerance for failure in their data centers, particularly when citizens' lives can literally be on the line as County communications systems depend on 100% uptime for first responders such as police, fire and rescue. Choosing IceWEB for high availability and cloud recovery clearly indicates simply nothing but the highest expectation for quality and performance in IceWEB's unified storage systems and IceSTORM operating system."
