Revinetix Data Protection Appliance Conserves Energy and Supports Green Storage

Volo Improvements Consume 14% Less Energy and Include De-Duplication

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - November 17, 2008) - Revinetix announces an enhancement to its Volo desktop data protection appliance that helps small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) conserve energy and reduce operating expenses. The improved Volo incorporates the new Atom processor from Intel which results in a 14% energy conservation over the previous version of the Volo.

"Energy conservation is of great importance to both our company culture and product development strategy," said Lou Banks, Revinetix Product Manager. "The Volo is our latest green technology that supports our vision to create new power efficient hardware and software to help SMBs & SMEs with their efforts to further reduce their carbon footprint and protect our environment."

With businesses facing soaring energy prices in a tight economy, the Volo data protection appliance delivers a smart power-saving strategy. It delivers high-performance data backup and requires minimal energy to operate. The Volo consumes just 60 watts of electricity, around 525 kilowatt hours (kWh) per year.
