StorageQuest announces launch of Centurion DiscHub Manager product

OTTAWA, Canada – May 5, 2009    StorageQuest, Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of a new product called the StorageQuest Centurion DiscHub Manager. This new software product provides powerful optical volume management features to the Centurion DiscHub by DSS, Digistore Solutions (S) Pte. Ltd. This new software product will be bundled with the Centurion DiscHub to create the Centurion DiscHub Workgroup.

A message from the President and CEO for StorageQuest Inc, Marwan Zayed: “The combination of the Centurion DiscHub with the StorageQuest Centurion DiscHub Manager will create an fully loaded 100 slot capacity near-line DVD optical library solution in the neighborhood of $3,000 USD. A comparable solution typically costs many times more for similar features and specifications. We anticipate a great deal demand for this new bundle. The bundle can be utilized by virtually anyone from home user to large businesses”

This new product provides a very easy to use interface for administering the Centurion DiscHub hardware and optical volumes. The volumes created within the software will show up under the virtual drive under My Computer. Writing and reading data is as simple as dragging and dropping to subfolders within the drive letter. Since all discs are written using industry standard UDF Filesystem your media will be safe and readable in any computer for years to come.

“We are pleased to partner with StorageQuest Inc.”, said Victor Foo, CEO, Digistore Solutions (S) Pte. Ltd. “StorageQuest has helped us to created a turn-key easy to use and powerful optical storage bundle. With the 5TB Blu-Ray version of the Centurion DiscHub unit just around the corner we are very confident we will have a winning solution”

Brendan Lelieveld-Amiro, Director Product Development for StorageQuest notes “This is a very easy but powerful optical library management product. The virtual drive created by our software looks and acts just like a traditional hard drive so most third party applications can read and write to our system without even knowing that files and folders are being written out to permanent optical media. Our sophisticated write cache allows many applications and users to read and write in parallel to the system. A feature typically found only in expensive high-end enterprise applications”

The offline media tracking feature is also incredibly easy to use. Each disc exported from the Centurion DiscHub is tracked by the software. The complete file and folder structure is fully browseable within the drive letter. If a user attempts to access the contents of a file the administrator will be notified.

“We at StorageQuest are strong believers of Optical Technology as a very sound medium for long term archiving, compliancy with all accepted regulatory i.e. Sarbanes Oxley, HIPPA and DICOM. In our view the product roadmap of 120 mm optical medium is gaining momentum every day in the professional and enterprise area. StorageQuest approach insures that all media is portable.. StorageQuest offers unlimited offline media tracking as a standard feature.” said President and CEO, Marwan Zayed.

Centurion DiscHub Workgroup will be available through Digistore Solutions from May 8th, 2009

StorageQuest Inc. to Demonstrate Reflector Data Archiving Software for Mac OS X at NAB 2007

OTTAWA, Canada – April 16, 2007    StorageQuest, Inc. is pleased to announce a new addition to the popular Reflector® Network Backup and Archiving Manager software family with the upcoming release of Reflector for Macintosh computers.  This version brings unsurpassed data archiving capabilities to users of the Mac OS X operating system by combining powerful, easy to use software with Rimage and Primera disc publishing systems.

The Reflector software package allows users to write large quantities of data automatically spanning across multiple CDs, DVDs or Blu-Ray discs. The discs are automatically recorded and feature uniquely printed labels using a robotic disc publisher system.  Hundreds of gigabytes of data can be easily transferred offline to optical discs enabling this high-volume data publishing and archiving solution.  A built-in database of all files written with Reflector is readily searchable to locate files that have been previously recorded.  Within a network environment, users of both Windows and Macintosh computers can now share the same disc publishing hardware, with file backup and archiving from their workstation.

Ben Whitney, the product manager for Reflector notes, “Macintosh computer systems in the workplace are increasing every year – these systems are now commonly found in many video, photography, graphic design and audio production houses – and we’ve heard the call for an integrated DVD archiving solution.  Our new software will allow Apple users to enjoy the powerful backup and archiving capabilities of Reflector.”

“We are excited to see Reflector’s capabilities extended to Mac users,” said Mike Laven, Director of Sales for Microboards (www.microboards.com). “There are a limited number of disc publishers that even support Apple operating systems, so to see this advanced set of data backup, wizard-driven archival functions available on a Mac is a huge step forward. We are offering the Reflector for Mac product to our channel of video and audio integrators and resellers because we see a tremendous benefit to Mac-based content producers from using StorageQuest’s software.  From its broad archival wizards for day-to-day business data management functions down to the ability to span content across optical media, every feature has a place in a modern studio and production environment.”

The software will be demonstrated at the NAB 2007 show in Las Vegas, Nevada from April 16th through 19th 2007, and will be shown at the Microboards booth (#SL9511). The software will be officially released in May.

StorageQuest™ Announces REFLECTOR™ for Rimage™ a Network Backup & Archive Solution for Small and Medium size Businesses

Posted Posted in News

Ottawa, Canada – February 14, 2006 – StorageQuest Inc., the leader in network attached optical storage management, today announced the general availability of the most recent version of REFLECTOR™ Network Backup & Archive Manager, version 5. The industry’s first solution to take advantage of the off-the-shelf DVD recording and printing hardware from Rimage (Nasdaq:RIMGNews) to offer the Small and Medium Businesses (SMB) a feature-rich data protection solution but also an information publishing solution at a cost less than tape-based solutions.

“Our latest release of REFLECTOR includes a number of customer driven enhancements such as our new PowerStream™ technology which greatly reduces the size of magnetic disk caching while improving performance and lowering costs” said Fred Bedard, StorageQuest’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “SMBs have requirements that are just as sophisticated as enterprise level companies but they look for solutions that are open, easy, and inexpensive. Today with the release of REFLECTOR version 5 we meet all of these requirements. When you consider the pervasiveness of DVD technology, it’s easy to see why a solution like REFLECTOR makes sense; archiving to DVD-R optical media with its lower cost, proven reliability and portability to any operating system also means your data will meet compliance regulations for unalterable data storage as a standard feature of our solution.”

David Suden, Chief Technology Officer of Rimage said, “It’s great to see a company evolve its products through customer feedback and that’s what StorageQuest has done with version 5 of REFLECTOR. StorageQuest continues to expand the power and capabilities of our systems enabling users to archive and offload unlimited amounts of digital content to inexpensive and reliable media. REFLECTOR is an impressive application which Rimage views as a great enabler for our DVD & CD products to address the needs of the digital archiving market.”

REFLECTOR has many unique capabilities which set it apart from traditional tape backup solutions. These solutions include: File Spanning, File Splitting and Media Labeling. REFLECTOR’s File Spanning will automatically record as many discs as required for the backup dataset and optimally pack the data so that it requires the smallest number of discs. File Splitting manages files larger than a piece of media to be split across multiple discs. Split files can be restored without using the Reflector software on any operating system. REFLECTOR will even print a full size label on each piece of media, which automatically contains the information the user has specified during the setup process, so each is easily identifiable.

“At International Mission Board we have developed a video archive solution built around the REFLECTOR and Rimage solution for our Avid Unity Media Network storage system. The archive solution has been in production for the past 6 months and has proved to be an excellent solution from both a technical and business perspective” said Mark Ritter, Operations Manager at the International Mission Board. “We had looked at tape solutions, but the cost and reliability, coupled with the fact we could not easily share our videos with our remote offices made it clear that tape was not the solution. The fact that REFLECTOR can span large video files seamlessly across many DVD’s, does not require any special software for playback, and will custom label each disc automatically, made this an easy decision for us. I’m excited to see version 5 is now available as it incorporates features we can take advantage of right away which will improve our archive solution.” The International Mission Board is an entity of the Southern Baptist Convention, the nation’s largest evangelical denomination with more than 40,000 churches and nearly 16 million members.

Pricing and Availability

StorageQuest’s REFLECTOR version 5 is available today for all Rimage systems. Pricing starts at US $795.00 for the SERVER EDITION. An optional CLIENT PAC, intended for users requiring the functionality of the server edition at their desktops, is available at US $150.00/ user in single quantities. Discounted multi-client packs are also available. The StorageQuest REFLECTOR products include a full year of software updates.
