Are you looking for a tool that can provide data backup, storage, and disaster recovery in a single, small package? Colorado Springs, Colo.-based STORServer Inc. is selling a smaller, less expensive version of its STORServer all-in-one storage backup appliance that is perfect for most school systems.
For its small size, the S10000 Backup Appliance offers loads of storage capacity, ranging from 90 to 270 gigabytes. Because it’s expandable, the device can support environments larger than 2 terabytes. School districts that use STORServer backup appliances for their storage needs include Canada’s Saskatoon Public Schools, Hoke County Schools in North Carolina, and Riverside Schools in California.
The S10000 has a small footprint and can sit on top of a table, but it also has a rack option. It backs up any network-attached client that uses directly attached storage. The appliance supports 35 different platforms, including Windows NT/2000, Novell, UXIX, Sun, and AIX. Prices start at $19,900.
