PROMISE Technology Spotlights Storage Solutions for the Cloud at VMworld

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/26/14 -- This week at VMworld 2014, PROMISE Technology Inc., a recognized global leader in the storage industry, will be on the show floor highlighting their storage solutions, as the company continues to build into cloud infrastructure. Along with PROMISE's just announced all-in-one, on-premise Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS) solution, FileCruiser, its unified storage system for virtualized backup/archive solutions, the Vess R2000 Series, will be showcased at the event.

VMworld is the leading virtualization and cloud computing event of the year, bringing together thought leaders, subject matter experts and IT professionals. As it continues to shift the tech landscape, the cloud has become the clear way forward -- particularly for datacenters. Building on the momentum generated by the cloud -- and giving IT professionals the building blocks needed for cloud storage infrastructure -- PROMISE's portfolio of cloud solutions brings cost savings, infrastructure reliability and flexibility to datacenters -- and businesses of all sizes.

The Vess R2000 Series is an ideal entry-level system for SMB/IT workgroups requiring cost efficient storage for unstructured data and virtualization backup/archiving. A high-availability 8G Fibre Channel/10G iSCSI unified storage system with NAS filer, the Vess R2000 Series is certified with the latest VMware vSphere® ESXi 5.5 as well as Veeam®, enabling customers to virtualize their IT infrastructure and start their move into the cloud. Additionally, the Vess R2000 Series supports VMware VAAI, which reduces resource overhead on VMware vSphere ESXi hosts, significantly improving performance for storage-intensive operations such as storage cloning, zeroing and more. The Vess R2000 offers industry leading price/performance and can easily grow along with a customer's business needs, as it can scale-up with online expansion up to 112 drives.

PROMISE's FileCruiser is an all-in-one cloud storage solution that allows businesses that have users needing to sync and share data between multiple mobile devices to build their own secure, scalable private cloud storage service. FileCruiser eliminates the data security concerns that come with public online cloud file sharing solutions because all hardware and data are located on the users' premises. In a recent survey by Enterprise Strategy Group, 69 percent of participants preferred on-premise cloud solutions, due to security concerns. FileCruiser can be deployed on various scales to meet the needs of hundreds to over ten thousand users.

PROMISE's booth at VMworld will feature a technology demonstration of its 'High Density Storage Server', a hyperscale computing 4U/70 bay platform which features two independent server nodes that provide high-availability, high storage capacity and high networking throughput. The PROMISE Technology High Density Storage Server provides flexible configuration modes to meet the needs of different deployment scenarios, and will be targeting big data analytics for OEM partners and Internet data center customers when it launches in Q4 2014.

Rounding out the suite of cloud storage solutions at PROMISE's booth are its VTrak storage subsystems -- which are VMware 5.5 certified and support Symantec and Veeam. The VTrak systems at VMworld can be deployed as virtualization building blocks for creating a cloud workgroup infrastructure for backup and archiving.

"While cloud-based services have made it easy for the average user to manage and access their data from multiple devices, delivering on the promise of the cloud can present problems for service providers," said James Lee, CEO, PROMISE Technology. "Storage is the key component to a cloud provider's success, and VMworld is the ideal venue to showcase our suite of cloud storage solutions -- which form the building blocks of a robust cloud infrastructure. PROMISE delivers consistent performance, reliability and manageability to ensure that a user's data is always there when it's requested."

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts.

What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards.
