Companies team up to help organizations manage, retain and protect information.
KOM Networks, base in Ottawa, Canada, a provider of storage management solutions for secure archiving, has certified its KOMpliance with Simpana 8 software from Oceanport, N.J.-based CommVault to provide data storage, search and management solutions for small businesses to large enterprises.
In a press release, the companies note that “the seamless integration between KOM Networks and CommVault offers a way to reduce costs, drive greater operational efficiency and simplify the way organizations manage, retain and protect their information.”
According to the companies, their technology relationship “will provide the availability of an integrated offering that addresses a wide range of compliance requirements at a very affordable price without sacrificing reliability or performance.”.
KOMpliance is a turnkey archive storage solution that uses standard file sharing protocols to deliver a secure universal file archive repository, according the KOM Networks. KOMpliance is available with its own storage capacity or as a SAN (storage area network) gateway to create secure archives using fiber channel and iSCSI storage resources. No agents or client licenses are required.
“Both CommVault and KOM have similar ideals in providing a very simple way to reduce costs, risk and manage growth while upgrading their technical infrastructure,” says Kamel Shaath, chief technology officer of KOM Networks. “Our integrated offerings will provide the best of all worlds, including Simpana software’s data deduplication, which complements the KOMpliance solution, eliminating redundant data to save on storage costs.”
CommVault Simpana software uses a single-platform architecture that is designed to enable companies to reclaim space on primary storage, reduce off-site storage by up to 90 percent and eliminate up to half their tape drives, according to the company. The enterprise data management software features data deduplication, laptop and desktop protection, remote office data management and advanced copy management features.
