Tandberg Data steps towards full service provider

02 Mar 10

The data protection company has taken its first step towards a strategy of changing from tape vendor to a full service supplier that delivers end-to-end data protection for SMBs.

In a new move that will take the firm closer to becoming a full service supplier, the company has introduced the DPS2000 NAS Series that it hails as an affordable family of disk systems targeted at small- to medium-sized businesses.

According to Tandberg Data, when combined with the recently launched AccuGuard backup and recovery software, the DPS2000 NAS provides users with automated data protection, including cross-platform file sharing, consolidated iSCSI storage, improved backup and recovery capabilities and remote replication for offsite data storage and disaster recovery.

Jeff Boles, senior analyst and director of validation services at Taneja Group, said that the DPS2000 NAS and the AccuGuard technology offers a compelling range of functionality for SMBs.

"As technologies like deduplication and replication become more accessible, shared storage simply demands the attention of small businesses everywhere – after all, they have the same requirements for data protection as large enterprises, but complex solutions and hefty price tags have trumped their needs in the past," Boles said.
