Aims to meet the surging demand among mid-sized companies for tiered storage offerings
Imation Corporation has acquired the assets of data storage technology provider ProStor Systems, including the InfiniVault tiered storage system and other related technologies.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, though Imation intends to retain about 15 employees in Boulder, Colorado, US focused in engineering, support, sales and marketing.
Through the deal, Imation aims to meet the surging demand among mid-sized companies for tiered offerings that store, protect and archive information.
The acquisition of the InfiniVault technology will add an efficient tiered storage architecture to Imation’s existing portfolio of backup and archiving products, the company said.
InfiniVault is a tiered storage system designed to balance the needs of managing increasing amounts of information over extended periods of time.
Imation expects that the InfiniVault software will enable it to deliver future tiered storage offerings using RDX and other hard disk, optical, magnetic and solid state storage.
The software helps strengthen the Imation RDX portfolio and the InfiniVault offering, and offers customer benefits that include data protection, continuous data access, security and retention management throughout the data’s extended lifespan.
The InfiniVault system also comes with multiple media options, including fixed RAID disk and RDX removable hard disk drives in a single storage environment to retrieve, retain, protect and archive digital content.
