BridgeSTOR Announces the GoldenGate Cloud Tape Library(TM) (CTL)

Send Backup and Archive Data to Public/Private Cloud Storage Using a Familiar Virtual Tape Library Interface, Enhancing Investments in Backup Infrastructures

POWAY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- BridgeSTOR, LLC, the company making cloud storage accessible, today announced the GoldenGate Cloud Tape Library (CTL), a cost-effective solution for storing backup and archive data on public and/or private cloud storage through a familiar VTL interface. GoldenGate is the latest addition to BridgeSTOR's family of gateway products that enables global access to cloud storage at both file and block levels. The GoldenGate CTL provides an elegant integration into existing backup infrastructures using a virtual media changer, virtual tape cartridges created in the cloud and virtual tape drives. The Golden Gate CTL interoperates with existing client backup software as well as with Microsoft's Data Protection Manager (DPM).

The GoldenGate CTL enables the business enterprise to retain the durability, control and security inherent in tape media while leveraging the cost, availability and accessibility advantages of cloud storage.

Unlike competing cloud tape products, the GoldenGate CTL enables backup and archive data to be immediately recovered and restored at the individual file level, eliminating the requirement to download an entire virtual tape cartridge from cloud storage. In addition, data can be recovered at the speed of the network without requiring cloud-provider-induced access delays.

Other key features and capabilities of the GoldenGate CTL include: 1) The ability to use local disk storage to enable backups to be performed at local network speeds and/or to enable VTL capabilities without using the cloud; 2) In-line data compression that can double the capacity of cloud and/or local storage (assuming the industry-standard 2:1 data compression ratio); 3) Military-strength data encryption used when in-flight and at-rest whenever sending data to cloud storage.

Finally, when coupled with the BridgeSTOR Synchronization Server™, the GoldenGate CTL offers an unparalleled global, multi-site data backup and archive, immediate file recognition and availability sharing capability.

The GoldenGate CTL is delivered as a physical appliance or as a Hyper-V or VMware virtual appliance. Pricing for a GoldenGate virtual appliance starts at $9,995 MSRP with unlimited capacity, unlimited users and unlimited clients. A physical GoldenGate CTL appliance with 48TB of storage capacity is available at $39,995 MSRP.

"The GoldenGate CTL combines the benefits of cloud storage availability and reliability with the enhanced data protection benefits of off-premises storage," says John Matze, CEO, BridgeSTOR, LLC. "The GoldenGate CTL is a backup and archive game-changer that leverages existing backup resources and processes through the benefits of the cloud. We are pleased to announce this latest addition to BridgeSTOR's family of cloud access gateway products."
