Quantum | ATL has announced the launch of its patented Prism Storage
Architecture initiative, with an endorsement from more than 20 storage industry leaders.
The new initiative is an attempt to answer the call from senior IT managers in Global 2000
corporations for a cost-effective way to overcome the limitations of server-attached
backup architectures and realise the benefits of network storage.
Prism is a modular architecture featuring large-scale integration of data management and
media management software into reliable automated tape libraries creating Network
Attached Storage (NAS) Appliances for workgroups and remote sites, as well as
high-availability Storage Area Network (SAN) systems for the data centre. Prism is also a
platform for remote network storage management and services, which enables corporate IT
users to cost-effectively evolve from locally managed storage peripherals, to centrally
managed storage systems, to remotely managed storage services.
