CARLSBAD, CA -- Abtech Systems, a provider of enterprise technology solutions, has teamed with IBM to offer IBM's XIV line of high-end storage arrays.

IBM's XIV family of storage arrays are built from industry-standard off-the-shelf hardware components, and include three different tiers of storage inside the box so customers can migrate data based on price and performance requirements. The IBM XIV Storage System was designed to handle today's diverse mix of information from traditional applications to Web 2.0 services as well as harness the high capacity and cost benefits of SATA drives. The solution employs a storage architecture that will provide Abtech customers with better more reliability and greater functionality, while offering improvements in ease of storage and exceptionally low total cost of ownership (TCO).

According to Abtech, availability and reliability are critical to enterprises with high storage demands. IBM has addressed this need in its XIV family through a redundancy scheme that enables automated self healing with exceptionally fast rebuild times. In addition a more functional approach to software includes snapshot capability, thin provisioning, and remote mirroring all of which help to protect business data from unexpected outages and costly downloads.

With the IBM XIV Storage System, Abtech can deploy an information infrastructure that is reliable, versatile and available while offering improvements in storage management, provisioning and improved asset utilization. These reasons may explain why the XIV solution has become one of IBM's fastest-growing product lines, with sales growing from $5 million to $280 million in 2009.

"The combination of hardware and software has enabled Abtech to offer a solid grid-based architecture that provide an exceptionally easy to use, high performance, scalable, reliable enterprise disk system for UNIX, Linux, Windows, and other supported distributed open server platforms, " said Bob Russell, President of Abtech Systems.

"IBM's XIV reduces complexity in enterprise storage while keeping pace with midrange to high-end disk capacity demands. This solution is a good fit for clients who want to be able to grow capacity without managing multiple tiers of storage," said Russell.

Get a Jump Start on Cost-Effective Storage Solution. Highlights of Abtech's IBM XIV solution include:

    High-end disk storage architecture eliminates the complexity of administration and management of tiered storage and information lifecycle management.

    Near-instantaneous snapshots provide point-in-time copies of data, which consume storage capacity only per changes while maintaining high performance. (continued...)
