RAID Inc. Announces the Industry’s First Affordable Comprehensive Storage Solution for the Small and Mid-Sized Market


LAWRENCE, MA, 01/27/2005 -- RAID Incorporated™ announced the industry’s first affordable comprehensive storage solution with enterprise functionality designed for the small and mid-sized market. This market segment has been largely neglected by storage vendors until now.

RAID Inc.’s Phoenix addresses this void by offering a solution with enterprise-level features that include; Managed Snapshot, Remote Replication [synchronous and asynchronous], Virtualization, Intelligent Capacity Management, and efficient Data migration.

The Phoenix simplifies storage through automated expertise and functionality, while providing scalable, robust and cost-effective solutions for the SMB market.

The requirement for automated expertise is becoming a paramount concern for small and mid-sized businesses. “Until now, storage management features were seen as the domain of large enterprises, but there was little argument that the need for managed services existed in the SMB market,” stated RAID Inc.’s CEO Greg Morris.

“As the need for storage increases, storage administrators become deeper burdened by the management piece with each new gigabyte added. Some companies decide to let the storage ’manage itself’ but this sort of inertia can have disastrous implications on data integrity and business continuity. Left unchecked, companies face a serious business risk of carrying large amounts of unmanaged data. The simplification and automation of data storage systems is essential to bridge this divide,” added Morris.

The Phoenix solution is designed with no single point of failure and is available in SATA, Fibre-Channel or Tiered disks with host interface options in Fibre-Channel and iSCSI. The solutions can be scaled from 500GB to 94.5TB.

When combining the Phoenix with StorageWatch® (, RAID Inc.’s real-time storage monitoring and administration service, it becomes the most comprehensive business continuity solution available in the market today.
