Paper Discusses IceWEB's Role in the Important Market for Efficient Storage Solutions

STERLING, VA--(Marketwire - March 2, 2011) - IceWEB™, Inc. (OTCBB: IWEB), www.iceweb.com, a leading provider of Unified Data Storage and building blocks for cloud storage networks, announced today that IDC's recently issued industry report titled 'Data Efficiency and the Value of Unified Data Storage' http://idcdocserv.com/1096 describes how IceWEB's storage solutions are meeting the current and emerging storage needs of mid-size organizations. The three-page document discusses the rapid changes in storage solutions and how the need for more efficient data storage is on the rise. It goes on to list the reasons why IceWEB's Unified Storage Systems offerings should be considered by Information Technology (IT) professionals.

The report also mentions the economic realities business owners and IT decision makers are constantly facing and how they want to improve IT operational efficiency while at the same time keeping costs down by not buying excess IT capacity. In addition, companies in data-intensive industries are challenged by physical storage system space and power limitations. To solve these issues IDC suggests providing IT teams in midsize organizations with storage systems like those provided by IceWEB that are optimized for usability in virtual and rapid data growth environments.

The paper describes IceWEB's unified storage platform which handles both file and block data. Built-in storage management features include inline deduplication, inline compression, linked clones, and thin provisioning for storage efficiency... all without any major performance penalties.

John R. Signorello, Chairman and CEO, stated, "This IDC report confirms what our customers are telling us... that VMware compatible IceWEB storage solutions are ideal for their virtualized environments of today and in the future."
