Storage and networking solutions providers Hifn Inc. and Toyou Feiji Electronics Co. Ltd have established a program for technical cooperation and technology development to deliver storage solutions to the China market.

Toyou has selected Hifn's Express DR cards for its hardware-advantaged compression technology. The cards will be deployed in Toyou's NetStor series of products. Toyou is the first China storage management vendor to integrate Hifn's Express DR cards, enabling Toyou to deliver a performanceand capacity-optimized Virtual Tape Library (VTL) solution.

Over the past years, VTL solutions have gained increasing market acceptance by providing advantages such as the performance and reliability benefits of disk-based backup while enabling users to maintain their existing tape backup infrastructure. Toyou developed a VTL solution to meet the growing needs for data security and backup in China. Meanwhile, China has seen exponential growth in enterprise data, as well as emerging requirements for new data center features such as higher backup capacity, data de-duplication and instant recovery. Toyou is dedicated to developing and upgrading its products to address these new requirements.

The combination of Toyou's NetStor VTL with Hifn's Express DR card for capacity optimization will enable enterprise customers to readily solve the backup storage problems they are combating. Leveraging Hifn's compression technology allows Toyou to improve the NetStor VTL appliance's backup speed, and reduce the backup window and disk space required. Hifn's Express DR card on average provides a 2:1 compression advantage, freeing up 50 percent more disk space and reducing time, energy and resource costs to manage the data.

"In working with Toyou, we see the NetStor VTL with integrated Express DR as the first step in many of our joint efforts to develop the next-generation storage solutions for the China market," said Steven Yang, VP of Hifn's Asia-Pacific field operations.
