Iomega & Redstor Announces Easy Cloud Storage Access for SMBs and Others
Iomega, an EMC company and a global leader in data protection, today announced new integration between Iomega network storage solutions and EMC® Atmos™ in conjunction with Redstor, making cloud computing a reality for smaller organisations and others by extending Redstor's EMC Atmos cloud-based storage platform and sharing to Iomega's network storage product offerings. The new integration gives SMBs, remote offices and distributed enterprises easy access to the Redstor cloud platform.The recently announced Iomega® StorCenter™ PX Server Class Series of network storage products features a new version of EMC® LifeLine™ software, which includes the Atmos Connector client software. In conjunction with a service provider, the Atmos Connector software lets a user copy data stored on an Iomega StorCenter network storage device directly to Redstor's Atmos-powered cloud storage platform. Once a customer's data is in the cloud, it instantly becomes a backup copy to help protect the customer's data from various forms of outage. Additionally, customers can access their cloud-based data from more than one location to facilitate data movement and data sharing.In Europe, Redstor has been providing storage solutions since 1998 and is now the leading UK channel focused wholesaler of cloud backup and storage services into the education market and small to medium-sized enterprises, having first set up its online platform in 2005."Iomega's broad network of resellers makes it easy for users to utilise Redstor's Atmos cloud-based storage service," said Paul Evans, Managing Director, Redstor. "The Iomega network storage solution works out of the box with our service. Quite simply, the user supplies account information through the Iomega network storage device and it's ready to start storing data in our cloud. This is a straightforward way for users to move files to and from Redstor's cloud service for sharing and protection of important information."
