According to one of the world's leading high technology analyst firms, the emergence of the 'cloud' as an alternative for information services delivery will continue to be one of the most important developments in the evolution of the IT market with the storage industry in a position to be among the major beneficiaries of the deployment of 'hybrid' cloud environments. Successfully addressing this trend, suppliers will balance growing demands from cloud customers for low-cost hardware while addressing the demand for advanced software solutions in areas such as object-based storage, automated data tiering, Big Data processing, and advanced archiving services.

The Hybrid Cloud Storage Series SmartStor A4R-CLD is a dynamic solution for SMBs as it provides convenient mobile access and file sharing that today's businesses demand, providing IT the ability to securely control data and manage user accounts. Additionally, anytime users save changes to a file, it is automatically synchronized across all of the devices in which the SmartStor Cloud Agent or App has been installed. The SmartStor APP was designed to be fully functional with both Apple and Android mobile platforms including support for the recently announced iOS6 thus providing an exceptional degree of flexibility demanded by today's tech-savvy users. All users sharing the files are automatically updated too, a huge benefit when collaborating with team members on projects.

"Our new Hybrid Cloud Storage Series SmartStor A4R-CLD offering features the most advanced file management system available for the private cloud today. This dramatic new feature combined with multi-level version control was developed in direct response to our customers' continued demand for increased security, flexibility and stability across all their applications," said James Lee, CEO, PROMISE Technology. "At the core of the SmartStor Cloud Series is our proven RAID engine which provides end-users with the stability and reliability that are core ingredients for any cloud computing solution."

Hybrid Cloud Storage Series SmartStor A4R-CLD has been honored with an impressive list of awards, including the prestigious 'Best Choice' award at Computex 2012, the world's second largest ICT show. Additionally, its outstanding functionality and innovation was recognized with the 'Cloud Innovation Award' from the Cloud Computing Association in Taiwan.
