SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 8, 2008 /PRNewswire/ — agami Systems, Inc., an industry leader in delivering enterprise-class unified storage systems with live file system replication and breakthrough operational performance and TCO, today announces that fast-growing interactive marketing and digital development company, Acsys Interactive, centralized its storage needs with the agami Information Server (AIS). Acsys Interactive chose the AIS3006 to simplify its operations and to improve mission critical data management and increase the availability of its growing managed hosting service.

Acsys Interactive is a full-service interactive agency providing strategy, branding, design, eMarketing, software development, and hosting services to customers that range from SMBs to Fortune 500 companies. As the company experienced rapid growth, it determined the need to migrate from a disconnected server-based storage set up to a network-based centralized storage system that offered superior availability and performance to handle its full content management suite and virtualized hosting environment.

Acsys selected the unified NAS/IP SAN AIS3006 from agami Systems due to its unique architecture, capacity, reliability, and affordability. Unlike other storage systems evaluated, the AIS3006 is able to support both file and block level data on a single platform, giving Acsys the flexibility it needs as its business grows. The AIS3006 supports more connections in a virtualized environment, enabling the reduction of physical servers replaced by virtualized servers, which keep costs down and service levels up. Another key feature is agami's high availability automated failover capability ensuring customer data is readily available, crucial in hosted environments such as Acsys'. Since deploying the agami Information Server, scheduled downtime required for maintenance has been reduced from a day to less than an hour.

"We were first impressed by the ease of use of the agami solution, with an IT staff of two, we needed a system that was easy to implement and maintain," says David Fusfeld, Infrastructure Manager, Acsys Interactive. "Centralizing storage on a single AIS3006 has drastically improved our uptime and due to the simplicity of the system design and increased capacity, we can now meet customer demand by adding multiple hosted environments for our customers in hours instead of weeks."

Acsys Interactive's future plans include adding a second AIS3006 at an alternative facility to take advantage of agami's industry-first live file replication capabilities for disaster recovery purposes.

The agami unified storage solution provides its users with the ability to consolidate storage with the management of both block and file level data through one easy-to-use management interface; improve flexibility with virtualization features that support up to 256 iSCSI targets and 1024 volumes; and provide advanced data protection by expanding its breakthrough file system replication software to enable iSCSI snapshots, replication & high-availability for block-level data.
