Tricord Teams with Iomega for NAS

Tricord Systems Inc. announced on Monday an agreement with Iomega to offer an NAS solution for backing up and restoring user data on desktops and laptops. The companies will combine Tricord's Lunar Flare NAS product with Iomega's client back-up application, QuikSync 3.

Effective immediately, each Lunar Flare NAS appliance will be shipped with a 30-day trial license of Iomega's QuikSync 3 software, which is used on client laptops or desktops running on Microsoft Windows Operating Systems.

After an installation and configuration process, the Iomega QuikSync 3 software designates a Lunar Flare NAS cluster as the back-up destination. According to the companies, this enables the PC user or system administrator to create, backup, protect, and restore multiple versions of files currently stored on desktops and laptops.
