Partners with Adaptec to protect Mac OS X systems by backing them up to iSCSI networked storage with Leopard’s Time Machine
(Oakdale, Minnesota--January 11, 2008) Small Tree Communications, an industry leader in providing state-of-the-art networking solutions, today announced plans to launch its abcSAN iSCSI initiator for Apple systems running the latest version of Mac OS X, 10.5 Leopard.
Small Tree Communications will deliver its iSCSI initiator software with Adaptec Snap Server networked storage hardware to provide a complete backup solution for Mac customers.
“Apple customers are continually looking for simpler ways to get their work done, allowing them to focus on the creative challenges that they face,” stated Corky Seeber, President of Small Tree Communications. “The debut of abcSAN complemented by Adaptec Snap Server iSCSI storage provides Apple users with a superior alternative to locally attached storage for Time Machine backups. abcSAN provides a secure, convenient, and easy networked backup solution for the Mac community.”
“Backing up several Mac computers to a Snap Server eliminates the need to purchase several external hard drives and manage them individually, saving time and money,” said Erik Pounds, Sr. Product Manager at Adaptec. “With Small Tree’s abcSAN software, Macs can utilize the iSCSI protocol to store their backups on award-winning Snap Server network attached storage systems.”
"We’re excited about this new partnership between Small Tree and Adaptec which allows anyone to take advantage of Mac OS X Leopard’s Time Machine feature in a multi-computer networked environment," added Corky Seeber.
abcSAN single-user and five-user licenses retail for $149 and $495, respectively.
