You might say that Sony Electronics got the idea for its unique data backup and business continuity solutions straight from MARS – that is, a design formula for making products Manageable, Affordable, Reliable and Scalable. The company’s StorStation brand of products encompasses a range of storage solutions based on this simple, four-part premise and is targeted specifically to fill a growing demand not addressed by current market products.

“There is a range of solutions that people use to tackle the data protection and storage facet of business continuity planning,” explains Steve Baker, vice president of marketing for the storage solutions division of Sony Electronics’ Core Technology Solutions Company based in San Jose, Calif. “There are the high-end solutions, managed at the enterprise level, which involve ensuring the protection and expedient recovery of corporate data. Then there is the low end of the spectrum, where embedded or direct-attached storage devices back up critical data should a server go down. At Sony we believe that there is an underserved group of customers who make up the gap between these two scenarios – namely, those requiring departmental or site-specific back-up solutions for localized business critical data”.
