New BDR Models

Please talk to your Sales Rep about our new BDR offerings with site-to-site capabilities for better Disaster Recovery. BDR-BDR and BDR-Vault replication software has been added free of charge to the units without bundled offsite storage.  Replication software may be purchased for an additional cost on bundled offsite storage units.  With this feature any BDR can act as a vault. 

On December 1, 2009 the new BDR G2 lineup will be available with double the storage capacity.  Bundled storage has also been dramatically increased on G2 bundled storage models.

Have a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

We are thankful for your continued support this year.

Help with Staying Healthy this Winter

Google has been working with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to find ways for your online searching to be more helpful this flu season. Check out Google's Flu Trends website. The flue shot finder shows you where both the H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccines are available in your area. Furthermore, has found a close relationship between how many people search for flu-related topics and how many people actually have flu symptoms. Of course, not every person who searches for "flu" is actually sick, but a pattern emerges when all the flu-related search queries are added together. Google compared their query counts with traditional flu surveillance systems and found that many search queries tend to be popular exactly when flu season is happening.
