“As a global leader in data storage, Imation continues to expand its portfolio of scalable storage solutions to help SMBs implement data archive and data protection systems that scale with ever-changing business needs,” said Patrick Bertschat, Product Marketing Manager for Scalable Storage Europe at Imation. “With the launch of Imation’s new InfiniVault Appliances, Imation has expanded the deployment of tiered storage for small and medium-sized business, helping them to lower content storage costs, meet compliance requirements, and protect their data.”

About Imation’s Scalable Storage Product Line
Imation’s scalable storage platform features new Imation InfiniVault and Imation DataGuard™ multi-tiered data-archive and data-protection appliances, as well as the company’s existing Imation RDX® removable hard disk storage and Linear Tape-Open (LTO) technologies. The portfolio provides low-cost, compliant solutions for SMBs to better retain, retrieve and recover their data.

The Imation InfiniVault data-archive appliance provides SMBs with a cost-effective storage option for managing unstructured data, helps meet rigorous data retention requirements and utilises hard drives, RDX drives and the cloud to deliver infinitely elastic vaults of online, nearline and offline storage. The Imation line includes a number of models – including the Imation InfiniVault 5, 35, and DICOM – to meet various size and industry requirements. Imation InfiniVault data-archive appliances will be available in the 2nd Quarter of 2012 through authorised Imation resellers and dealers.

The Imation DataGuard data-protection appliance is a disaster-tolerant backup appliance using hard drives and RDX drives to provide a multi-layer data protection target within existing backup infrastructures. Designed as both tower and rack models, DataGuard uses RDX removable hard drives to retain backups and to seed the cloud infrastructure. Models include the Imation DataGuard T5R and the R4, and will be available through authorised Imation resellers and dealers in March 2012.

Purpose built to mitigate data loss, retain long-term data and support removable media workflows, Imation’s line of standalone and internal mounted RDX Hardware combines the best of tape backup with hard disk drive storage and delivers removability, portability reliability, faster transfer rates and instant file retrieval. Currently available through authorised Imation resellers and dealers, models include the RDX A8 Storage Array and RDX USB 2.0 and 3.0 Internal and External Docks.

Imation’s LTO Hardware is available as a single tape drive system or multiple drive library systems in either rack mount or standalone configurations.
