(PresseBox) ( London, )
Storage Expo taking place on the 14th - 15th October at Olympia in London is established as the event where new technology is launched for the data storage and information management markets. The 2009 event continues this precedent with many of the largest IT companies in the world using the event as a showcase for their latest products.

According to Natalie Booth, Event Director, "This year Storage Expo will tackle the key issues that facing data storage and information management professionals head on with its revamped education and seminar program. It offers businesses access to some of the best advice in the industry for free, with its fantastic line-up of over 65 keynote speakers and industry experts and a total of 114 seminar sessions over 2 days. We expect there to be a plethora of new technology announced at Storage Expo this year and many of the exhibitors are keeping their product launches under wraps until the first day of the event. However, here are a few examples of what exhibitors can expect to see at the show."

Hewlett-Packard's highlight of Storage Expo 2009 will be the new Extreme Data Storage (ExDS) solution, which can scale up to petabytes of data. HP will feature its industry leading range of virtualised storage portfolio of products and services and also hold real world demos of backup, disaster recovery and virtualisation solutions.

Double-Take Software will be showcasing two new products, Double-Take Availability and Double-Take Backup, at Storage Expo. These new solutions complete Double-Take Software's Workload Optimisation suite of products, providing businesses with real-time backup as well as improved protection for business data and applications. Double-Take Backup provides real-time replication of data to continuously protect workloads. It is aimed at organisations that want to centralise and consolidate their backup strategies, allowing them to get workloads up and running rapidly by recovering them to new physical hardware or into a new virtual machine with minimal effort. Double-Take Availability is an updated version of Double-Take Software's market-leading business continuity product. It adds new application-aware monitoring capabilities, enhances protection of Microsoft SQL environments and introduces a new way of re-synchronising protected data, dramatically reducing re-synchronisation times compared to competing solutions.

Origin Storage will be launching the 1 terabyte version of Datalocker, a portable secure drive, at Storage Expo. Data Locker mounts an operating system only when the correct PIN has been entered on the LCD keypad. You can also use the LCD screen to change the Data Locker PIN, dismount the drive, toggle the encryption on or off, or wipe the drive clean. The Data Locker will allow you to store and protect all of your highly sensitive data, and personal files. It is available in five different capacities, 160GB, 320GB, 500GB and the latest editions of 750GB and 1 Terabyte and will be a vital piece of equipment for local governments and businesses alike.

This year's Storage Expo will see the launch of Pillar's 'Stop Storage Waste Campaign', which will be focusing on how organisations can maximise their storage infrastructure and stop the chronic underutilisation that is currently evident in so many storage environments. This falls in line with Pillar's application-aware storage systems that differentiate services by priority, allowing users to match applications to appropriate service levels within a single storage platform, delivering higher utilisation rates and lowering operational costs.

To support the overall campaign, Pillar will be discussing its new 2TB SATA Drives for Enterprise Customers. Pillar is the first network storage company to make 2 terabyte SATA drives available to the enterprise market, as part of its award-winning Pillar Axiom storage system. The new drives push the Axiom's overall usable capacity to over 1.6 petabytes per system, while driving down overall power consumption by 50 percent and space consumption by 2X. Furthermore, Pillar will be discussing how through its innovative use of Solid State Drives (SSD) in its Axiom storage system, it can deliver the single best $/IOP in the storage market today. Pillar will also be updating the market on how it can drive down the $/IOP of SSDs to half that of traditional Fibre Channel drives and how these new SSD Bricks will reduce overall power consumption by up to 85 percent.

Hitachi Data Systems is showcasing its entire product portfolio on stand 350 at Storage Expo 2009. With live demonstrations of its product and service offerings, Hitachi Data Systems' representatives will be on hand to show customers how they can better manage their storage arrays, drive business value from their data and achieve operational and capital expenditure savings. In these tough times, customers are looking to utilise their existing assets rather than make new investments on IT hardware. Hitachi Data Systems will be showing visitors how this can be achieved without comprising on high performance.

CA will focus on three key customer issues:

-Reducing risk and cost with a turnkey business continuity & disaster recovery managed service - CA Instant Recovery on Demand
-Simplifying licensing - CA Managed Capacity Licensing
-Enterprise Class data protection at an affordable price - ARCseve & Xosoft

Through two key presentations in the seminar programme, Eric Pitcher (VP of Global Product Management ) and Tim Goodwin (Senior Director for Channel Sales) will outline how CA are helping customers to address these issues. With demonstrations and presentations of the latest releases of ARCserve and Xosoft along with CA's Cloud computing offering can also be seen on the CA stand and in the Cloud Zone.
