Premier IT infrastructure integrator assesses Nine Technology's online backup and recovery solutions

MIDDLEBORO, Mass., Jan. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Nine Technology, an industry-driving developer of online data backup and recovery solutions, announced today that Forsythe Solutions Group Inc. has examined Nine Technology's Powered By Nine™ platform in a two-stage internal pilot program. Forsythe's successful testing of the Nine Technology ONE and PRO offerings adds to the list of organizations that have performed individual benchmarks on the Powered By Nine™ solutions and found them capable of offering reliable data backup and recovery for large enterprises.

"I've worked with Forsythe in the past and I'm thrilled they chose Powered By Nine™ to be an effective solution to use within their own IT infrastructure," said Tom Gelson, founder and CEO of Nine Technology. "The pilot program was designed to put the technology through its paces, and for such a respected company as Forsythe to verify its capabilities is rewarding to our team."

The rigorous two-stage testing program of the Powered By Nine™ solutions included extensive initial analysis by Forsythe's IT department, followed by a wider pilot program of the solution among Forsythe personnel.  Thirty end users evaluated the system for backup and restore efficiency and comprehensiveness, with consideration also paid to the user interface and to the overall ease of use.  Forsythe will now begin to deploy Powered by Nine™ ONE and PRO throughout their organization.

"Our pilot testing found the Powered By Nine™ online backup and recovery platform to be an effective and robust solution for backing up stored data to the cloud," said Abdul Mohsin, associate operations administrator of Forsythe. "It allows us to free up space on our storage servers and also to centrally manage individual end-user backups."
