Self Healing Data Storage Consolidation Solution Offered by Evolving Solutions Quickly Recovers Mission Critical Data

IBM XIV Able To Regenerate Data Loss Due To Disk Failure

Minneapolis, MN December 9, 2008 - Evolving Solutions, a leading server virtualization and storage consolidation provider, is one of ten Certified IBM Business Partners in the United States to offer IBM's XIV, a self healing data storage consolidation solution. IBM's XIV is able to repair and restore data loss due to disk failure within approximately thirty minutes, versus the hours or days needed by alternative solutions.

Evolving Solutions is offering IBM XIV immediately for client demonstrations in its Business Partner Innovation Center (BPIC).

"It is essential to have a system that can effectively store, consolidate and protect mission critical data," stated Jaime Gmach, President of Evolving Solutions. "We have seen a need for IBM's XIV Storage Consolidation System as high volumes of data are outpacing an IT department's ability to store and manage the data by traditional means. By the introduction of the XIV, IBM is providing another option for businesses to store and protect their data."

DeepSpar Data Recovery Systems, Leading Analyst in Disaster Recovery estimates disk failure accounts for 38 percent of data loss incidents in businesses across the United States each year. Disk failure for these companies results in data loss that can derail large, costly projects.

As business controls and compliance concerns drive the increase of information risk management and zero tolerance for data loss, IBM's XIV provides continual data protection capabilities resulting in a better level of assurance for IT departments.

The speed of data access in a recovery scenario and the deep application protection it provides; makes IBM's XIV Storage Consolidation System an excellent choice to address growing data needs, improving application availability and reducing data loss for businesses of any size.

"IBM XIV is a game changing data storage solution," stated Mike Keeler, Senior Storage Consultant, Evolving Solutions." The architecture overcomes traditional storage challenges from other manufacturers. We are seeing tremendous customer interest in this technology."
