Seven10 Enhances the StorFirst Back-Up Family of Products to Meet Enterprise Compliance

New Levels of Performance and Security Added to Hitachi and EMC Editions Designed to Reduce Costs and to Extend Disaster Recovery Options for Object Storage

LAWRENCE, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 19, 2014) - Seven10 Storage Software has announced significant enhancements to its object storage data protection suite; StorFirst Back-Up EMC Edition (formerly StorFirst Altus) and StorFirst Back-Up Hitachi Edition (formerly StorFirst Apollo). Endorsed by Seven10 partners and end-users, StorFirst Back-Up offers a simpler and more cost effective software solution for replication and disaster recovery of both EMC Centera and Hitachi HCP object storage devices. StorFirst remains the only solution on the market that offers purpose-built replication of the content residing on these object repositories to tape, virtual tape and cloud storage. StorFirst Back-Up offers measures that provide customers with an additional level of protection from data loss as well as compliance with regulatory requirements.

  • Certification with latest Windows Server Operating System
  • Enhanced performance (64-bit, upgraded database, Windows 2013 Server R2)
