Can APTARE’s StorageConsole remain relevant in 2008 and beyond? That was a question that weighed on my mind as I met with Rick Clark, APTARE’s President and CEO, a couple of weeks ago. The purpose of the briefing: receive an update on what steps APTARE is taking to keep its StorageConsole 6.5 product alive and growing as the data protection space evolves. Of course, the particular challenge that StorageConsole needs to address now and in the coming years is managing the growing use of disk in data protection and start to wean itself off of managing tape-based backup.

When a specific product receives recognition or an award from an independent third party, it is always a cause for celebration. Both NEC’s HYDRAstor and CommVault’s Galaxy received Storage magazine and searchstorage.com’s Gold award in their respective 2007 Product of the Year “Backup and Disaster Recovery Hardware” and “Backup and Disaster Recovery Software” categories. However it was much more than a “win” for either of these a products; rather it was a validation of years of research and hard work to deliver products that met the tactical needs of today’s businesses and are also designed to meet their more strategic needs of backup and disaster recovery going forward.
