Storactive Inc., the leader in continuous data protection (CDP) technology, today announced that it has appointed John Milner as its new European Director of Sales as part of an increased focus on the European Market. Milner, who has worked within the storage industry for over 23 years, joins Storactive after groundbreaking work at innovative pan European data backup vendor DataCenter Technologies that was recently acquired.
Storactive has both the development expertise and rock solid products to excel in this fast growing sector of the data management market, comments Milner, I look forward to helping to unlock new markets and deliver the benefits of continuous data protection across the territory while working to both enhance and expand our channel. Storactive has also recently increased the head count of its European support team as well as actively recruiting channel partners in France, Benelux and Spain to join its existing partners in the UK, Germany, Italy and the Nordics.
Storactive LiveBackup and LiveServ are fast gaining a reputation for helping customers quickly recover from data incidents. Storactive LiveBackup is the only client-server, real-time CDP software to deliver automatic data backup, reliable self-service file recovery and easy disaster recovery for Windows desktops and laptops. LiveBackup offers comprehensive system maintenance tools including System Rollback for rapid point-in-time recovery and bare metal restore for complete system restores from scratch.
LiveServ protects Exchange data at the message-level. While the Exchange server is running, the administrator can easily recover an email, a contact, a calendar item or an entire mailbox. LiveServ continuously backs up data, which allows administrators to roll back to any previous point in time and provide zero data loss for their end-users. Both applications integrate into existing backup infrastructures and are used by large enterprises including Fortune 500 companies and major Federal government institutions.
We are pleased to have John working with us as we expand our operations throughout Europe Peter Jordan, VP Worldwide Sales, comments, As a company we believe in having local sales and support infrastructure provide the best possible service to both our customers and channel and Johns expertise in the area of real-time backup systems and his detailed knowledge of the storage industry will be invaluable in increasing our European market share.
