Cirrus Data Solutions Introduces Powerful Data Protection Capabilities


New Functionality Creates True Zero Downtime for Storage Migration;
Robust Data Management Capabilities Now Includes Heterogenous Data

Cirrus Data Solutions (CDS), the market leader in storage area network
(SAN) data migration and data management, today announced the latest
software release of the company's flagship DMS platform. The new version
now delivers powerful data management and data protection capabilities,
further developing the company's vision of offering full data management
across the enterprise. DMS is the industry's leading data management and
migration solution, enabling organizations to manage data between
physical and virtual servers as well as the cloud to ensure data
integrity and security. The new release of DMS now provides data
synchronization and secondary storage snapshot/cloning automation to
facilitate heterogenous cybersecurity protection and data
protection/recovery functionalities for any brand of primary storage.
With the patented TDI technology, these new use cases of DMS can be
deployed into any FC/iSCSI SAN storage environment transparently for any
brand of storage without downtime and without requiring changes to the
hosts, switches, or the primary storage.

"Cirrus Data Solutions is proud to work with some of the largest storage
technology organizations in the world," said Wayne Lam, Founder and CEO,
Cirrus Data Solutions. "The strategic relationship CDS has with its
customers and data storage industry partners has helped shape our
product innovation plans. The new functionality unveiled today is
another step in the evolution of our product line to support
comprehensive cybersecurity, data management, and data protection
practices in enterprises around the world."

The new software release also delivers critical pMotion™ functionality
that transforms DMS into the only heterogenous data migration solution
for fabric-level storage migration that requires absolutely zero
application level downtime from end-to-end. The ability to complete a
storage refresh, migrating the storage workload to the new storage and
retiring the old storage on time without requiring application downtime
significantly increases the ROI to organizations across the globe.

Finally, data security is a top priority for organizations of all sizes.
High profile ransomware attacks emphasize the need for backup and
recovery plans that restore applications and services rapidly. For
organizations with heterogeneous data storage environments, there is a
strong desire to offload the security scanning and analysis to separate
secondary storage where safe copies are kept for future recovery needs.
This approach ensures the primary storage is focused on servicing
primary I/O operations without being impacted by secondary operations.
The latest version of DMS facilitates separation of primary and
secondary operations with an integration point for interaction with any
storage vendor's array enabling snapshots using the array's native API
after every periodic resynchronization. As a strategic solution in the
data center, DMS can enable true data mobility and now offers universal
storage synchronization across heterogenous data storage technologies.
Utilizing its industry leading dedupe and compression technology, DMS
can securely replicate data with 5 to 10 times the bandwidth savings
over unlimited distance.

"As the data management industry continues to evolve, CDS looks forward
to helping our global partners and customers address their expanding
needs with innovative solutions that change the expectation for data
protection and availability," concluded Lam.
