“We have been working with leading solution partners in the Apple market since the introduction of the Active Storage XRAID,” said Skip Levens, vice president of Business Development for Active Storage. “Our goal is to extend the reach and capabilities of our joint solutions to meet new and emerging customer needs, dedicated to the seamless user experience that Apple customers demand. We are proud to announce these initial solutions and partners that have been in high demand from our customers.”

“We recently completed qualification testing at one of the most demanding broadcast clients in the world – the performance and reliability of the Active Storage XRAID was absolutely stellar,” said Claudio Lisman, founder, CEO and Chairman of Primestream. “In fact, we think that together with the Primestream portfolio solutions we can unlock new categories of solutions for our top tier broadcasting and media customers building on the considerable expertise of both companies. This will be an exciting year for Active Storage and Primestream.”

“We’re excited to work with the management team at Active Storage again,” said Richard Bauer, president and CEO, Cloverleaf Communications. “Previously, we were able to dramatically expand the capabilities of storage for Apple users – delivering data protection and storage management capabilities beyond that of the top storage vendors for a fraction of the price. Now, with the outstanding performance of the Active Storage XRAID and the impressive engineering team at Active Storage, we look forward to taking these capabilities to new levels and continuing our joint work of delivering sophisticated and flexible storage solutions for Rich Media, Scientific and general IT environments.”

“We believe that the Active Storage XRAID is an important new platform for Apple users – where data management applications like Solutioneering’s Data:enRoute are tightly integrated with fast, highly reliable and carefully tuned storage to deliver a seamless user experience,” said Bob Wilson, president and CEO, Solutioneering.
