HANNOVER, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 13, 2002
StoreAge Networking Technologies, the leading storage virtualization company, today announced that it is now shipping MultiCopy(TM), an advanced multi-level replication application.
MultiCopy offers organizations the ability to create many full copies of production volumes instantly and "on the fly" over any network bandwidth and structure, while not loading production servers. This infrastructure solution is designed to scale with the needs of the business, providing true benefits in terms of high performance, data protection and reduced TCO (1) (Total Cost of Ownership) The cost of using a computer. It includes the cost of the hardware, software and upgrades as well as the cost of the inhouse staff and/or consultants that provide training and technical support. See ROI. .
StoreAge will be demonstrating MultiCopy's unique features and capabilities at the CeBIT 2002 fair, together with Assistra AG, StoreAge's partner in Germany. Demos will be provided at the StoreAge stand - Hall 16, Stand B34 (FCIA FCIA

StoreAge's MultiCopy is an innovative copy facility implemented in conjunction with StoreAge's SVM SVM Support Vector Machines
SVM School of Veterinary Medicine
SVM Solaris Volume Manager
SVM Space Vector Modulation
SVM Storage Virtualization Manager (StoreAge)
SVM Service Module (also abbreviated as S/M) (TM) (Storage Virtualization Manager). MultiCopy enables the creation of multiple physical copies of volumes, regardless of storage subsystems and SAN components. Each copy is independently accessible and instantly available, allowing production servers to access data while the copy operation is in process.
MultiCopy enables the copying and re-purposing of information, while leaving production servers available for productive work and uninvolved in data movement.
MultiCopy eliminates information and storage systems' bottlenecks, while enabling a variety of High Availability (HA) and high-performance capabilities such as LAN-free and Server-free Backup. A valuable business advantage is the ability to support applications' development and test them with real production data, without risking the corruption of that data.
"MultiCopy is one more storage application which works in conjunction with the SVM, our unique Asymmetric Virtualization appliance, as a key enabler for business continuity strategies and significant reduction of TCO," said Nelson Nahum, CTO (Chief Technical Officer) The executive responsible for the technical direction of an organization. See CIO and salary survey. of StoreAge. "This is yet another step in our roadmap, providing for improvement in storage management in a distributed enterprise SAN environment."
Marc Farley, a storage industry guru and the author of Building Storage Networks, a classical reference book, noted: "Snapshot technologies are becoming the tools of choice for the forward-thinking IT managers. StoreAge's MultiCopy is a valuable snapshot application for the heterogeneous open systems environment that uses the same popular snapshot concepts as those used by EMC (1) (EMC Corporation, Hopkinton, MA, www.emc.com) The leading supplier of storage products for midrange computers and mainframes. Founded in 1979 by Richard J. Egan and Roger Marino, EMC has developed advanced storage and retrieval technologies for the world's largest companies. , IBM (International Business Machines Corporation, Armonk, NY, www.ibm.com) The world's largest computer company. IBM's product lines include the S/390 mainframes (zSeries), AS/400 midrange business systems (iSeries), RS/6000 workstations and servers (pSeries), Intel-based servers (xSeries) and Hitachi the enterprise data center. Together with the company's MultiView point-in-time snapshot product, MultiCopy provides a complete snapshot storage management system for any 'instant access' requirement."
"It is quite obvious that SAN deployment on a large scale requires that specific user benefits will be more clearly demonstrated. An extensive Replication function such as offered by StoreAge's MultiCopy represents such a benefit," commented Steve Duplessie, a senior analyst and a founder of The Enterprise Storage Group, an independent consultancy.
