Imation Corp. (NYSE: IMN), a global scalable storage and data security company, today announced a series of activities at October trade shows around the world intended to demonstrate the company’s leadership position in providing scalable and secure storage solutions for growing companies. Through executive presentations and exhibitor booth demonstrations at SNW Fall 2012, IP Expo and SNW Europe, Imation will highlight how it helps customers store, protect and connect to digital content by providing technologies at the intersection of storage and security, including solutions based on RDX® removable storage that offer significant scalability and flexibility. “SMBs have encountered the perfect storm of IT and business challenges. The amount of data and content produced by organizations continues to increase, demanding better, more efficient storage infrastructures. This data-growth-driven storage demand is paired with tightened corporate purse strings and the fact that many SMBs do not have an optimized, secure storage strategy in place,” said Bill Schilling, director of Scalable Storage Marketing at Imation. “Imation is dedicated to helping value-added-resellers (VARs) provide SMBs with solutions that are purpose-built, with the scalability, performance and portability needed to handle this mountain of data. In particular this year we will highlight how RDX removable storage is ideally suited to the storage infrastructure needs of SMBs.” SNW Fall 2012 (Santa Clara, Calif.)SNW is the world’s largest independently produced conference series focused on the evolution of architecture for a new world of mobility, Big Data and business agility.
