Entry Level Backup Appliance (A-Series)

A-Series backup appliances are designed for smaller size environments with moderate storage requirements while still supporting deduplication and limited converged data appliance features when configured at their largest sizes. They are fully integrated and scalable solutions for complete data protection. An excellent entry-level choice with room to grow.

STORServer A-Series backup appliances are powered by IBM Storage® Protect and IBM Storage® Protect Plus software. The A-series appliances efficiently back up multiple operating systems and email applications plus support most popular database platforms. Backups and restores can take place across all network connections (NAS, SAN, LAN, WAN) from hundreds of storage devices. Additional STORServer software options can extend the capabilities of the appliance to protect additional platforms such as OpenVMS.
