NEW YORK—Cirrus Data Solutions, a leader in data migration, data acceleration, and data protection, and Align, the premier global provider of IT infrastructure solutions, today announced an agreement to deliver world-class data center solutions to their customers in the United States. Specifically, the Cirrus Data Solutions Data Migration Server (DMS) and Data Caching Server (DCS) are now available as part of the Align Data Center Solution.

Through this strategic partnership, Align and Cirrus Data plan to deliver clients comprehensive data center solutions that meet next-generation technology requirements. The Cirrus Data Solution DMS accelerates, automates, and simplifies the block level migration of data from fibre channel storage area networks (SANs) to any new storage destinations. Furthermore, the latest version of the DMS provides the easiest, fastest way to move data without disruption: simply plug it into the network and begin moving source data to new destination storage in minutes.

“Our customers are continually challenged by the explosion of data from online transactions, growing mobility, and the Internet of Things,” said Jim Johnson, Director of IT Services Align. “We require technology that provides our customers with a path to the future, fast. CDS is the only block-level storage that enables enterprises to migrate the data and storage workloads with no application downtime required.”

Align is the premier global provider of technology infrastructure solutions, specializing in strategy, design, deployment, ongoing support, optimization and transformation of technology infrastructure. Since 1986, the world’s leading firms have relied on Align to guide them through IT challenges and deliver complete solutions for business change and growth.

“Cirrus Data Solution offers a truly unique approach to storage migration,” said Ron Croce, Vice President Worldwide Sales of Cirrus Data. “The latest version of the DMS unlocked these benefits for channel partners worldwide. We’re excited to partner with Align as they are now able to deliver a highly affordable, flexible, and easy-to-use migration solution that businesses can take advantage of without delays or downtime.”
