Atempo – 3 gals, 1 guy and 1 LB handbag

I have known Atempo for years and even contacted them once when I was in NetApp several years ago. I don’t know much about them until a friend recently took up the master resellership of Atempo here in Malaysia. And when people ask me “Atempo who?”, I would reply “3 gals, 1 guy and 1 LB handbag”.

Atempo, is a company that specializes in data protection and archiving solutions and has been around for almost 20 years. They compete with Symantec Netbackup, Commvault Simpana and Bakbone Netvault and I have seen their solutions. It’s pretty decent and with an attractive price as well. Perhaps they don’t market themselves as strongly as some the bigger data protection companies, but I would recommend to anyone, any day. If you need more information, contact me.

But the usual puzzled faces will soon go away once they start recognizing Atempo’s solutions because that is where my usual Atempo introduction comes from – their solutions.

Atempo has 5 key products

  • Time Navigator (TINA)
  • Live Navigator (LINA)
  • Atempo Digital Archive (ADA)
  • Atempo Digital Archive for Messaging (ADAM)
  • Live Backup (LB)
Wow, with a cool one like ADAM, 3 hotties in TINA, LINA and ADA, plus LV, err, I mean LB,what more can you ask for?So, before you get into kinky ideas (a foursome?), Atempo is attempting (pun intended ;-)), to take up of your mindshare when it comes to data backup and data archiving.
I am planning to find out more about Atempo in the coming months. Things have been hectic for me but my good buddy now the master reseller of Atempo in Malaysia will make sure that I focus on Atempo more.
Later – guy, gals and a nice handbag. 😀

About cfheoh

I am a technology blogger with 20 years of IT experience. I write heavily on technologies related to storage networking and data management because that is my area of interest and expertise. I introduce technologies with the objectives to get readers to *know the facts*, and use that knowledge to cut through the marketing hypes, FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) and other fancy stuff. Only then, there will be progress. I am involved in SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) and presently the Chairman of SNIA Malaysia. My day job is to run 2 companies - Storage Networking Academy and ZedFS Systems. Storage Networking Academy provides open-technology courses in storage networking (foundation to advanced) as well as Cloud Computing. We strives to ensure vendor-neutrality as much as we can in our offerings. At ZedFS Systems, we offer both storage infrastructure and software solution called Zed OpenStorage. We developed Zed OpenStorage based on the Solaris kernel, ZFS file system and DTrace storage analytics.
