Tech Data, DPS by Arco Conclude Distribution Agreement
Company’s products feature Patent-pending Hidden Device Technology

Hollywood, FL, December 20 – Leading information technology products distributor Tech Data with locations in 24 countries and sales of $17.4 Billion dollars and Data Protection Solutions by Arco have concluded an agreement that will make the company’s line of patented backup and disk mirroring products available through Tech Data’s worldwide distribution network. “We’re excited about partnering with a market leader like Tech Data. DPS’ disk mirroring and backup solution is filling a tremendous need in the IT marketplace. Current backup solutions in the SOHO and SMB space have fallen seriously short of protecting users’ data,” said Itzik Levy, company CEO. “DPS has brought the industry a new backup and restore standard with our EzBackup™ family of products. They provide ease of use, consistently successful backups and the only fail-safe, true image restore for all edge-of-the-networks systems.”

“Tech Data is very pleased to welcome DPS to its family of premier information technology suppliers,” said Program Director George Krouskos. “Our customer have been requesting simple to use backup and restore product for years. As edge of the network devices grow dramatically the ability to execute simple but sophisticated backup and restore has become a challenge unmeet by the market. DPS EzBackup™ product appear to fill this bill”

DPS’ OS-independent execution of the Disk 2 Disk (D2D) architecture, Itzik noted enables the use of all standard ATA hard drives. “Thanks to DPS patented and patent-pending technologies, we lead the disk mirroring community in the development of D2D technology,” he said. “The potential demand for D2D backup in the SOHO and SMB markets is huge, and we’re poised to fill that demand with fail-safe, hands-off data protection.”

Levy quoted comments from leading storage analyst Arun Taneja, Managing Partner, The Taneja Group: “Just because a company is small or medium size does not mean that its data is any less valuable than the largest of the large company’s data. The data protection issues faced with these smaller companies today is no different either, except they need a product that is easy to deploy and to use.”

The company’s DupliDisk™ and EzBackup™ product lines, Levy noted, eliminate the costs of data loss by preventing its occurrence. “A fully bootable image copy ensures that the system can be restored in a matter of seconds, versus hours. We also remove the backup load from the host CPU, requiring no drivers, IRQs or TSRs.” Data security is greatly enhanced, he added, through the application of the company’s patent-pending Hidden Device Technology (HDT). “HDT’s unique capability renders the backup drive invisible to the system; it’s also invisible to the user, requiring no customer intervention or scheduled commands. We’re providing our customers an easy-to-use, Enterprise-class solution at minimal cost, whether they’re SOHO, SMB or Enterprise-level customers. I believe the benefit received by the Tech Data reseller will only be surpassed by end user satisfaction.”

Headquartered in south Florida, Data Protection Solutions by Arco, was founded in 1989. Its disk mirroring RAID controller and EzBackup™ disk-to-disk (D2D) product lines, powered by the company¹s patented DupliDisk technology, are designed to preserve the value of personal and corporate data. Data values are growing exponentially, and the high failure rate of tape-based backups and restores is a more serious threat to these values than ever. D2D backup provides cost-effective backup and storage up to terabyte capacity. It is now recognized as the “fail-safe” solution to data protection for enterprise, SMB and SOHO applications. The company serves both direct and OEM markets through distributors and resellers in the United States, Europe and the Far East.
