Private Cloud Backup Appliance for Small and Medium Businesses Named to Prestigious List by Leading Channel Publication

February 1, 2010- COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--3X Systems, the automatic offsite backup company for SMBs, today announced that it has been named one of the Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors for 2010 by CRN (Computer Reseller News), the leading channel publication for IT resellers. CRN recognized 3X Systems for its line of portable Remote Backup Appliances (RBA) that enable businesses to easily deploy a private backup cloud. The 3X RBA® combines the benefits of high speed on-premise backup with the convenience of online remote backup for disaster recover.

According to CRN, “The RBA from 3X Systems serves as encrypted backup. Solution providers bring the 3X RBA to a customer to do the initial backup of all its PCs. Further backups with deduplication technology are done as the data changes. PCs can automatically find the 3X RBA to do their backups, making it a mini private storage cloud. It can be brought to a customer site or remote site to restore operations after a disaster.” See

“3X Systems is honored to be one of CRN’s Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors for 2010,” said Alan Arman, CEO of 3X Systems. “CRN is the most respected channel publication for IT products in the world. Being named to this coveted list provides our channel partners with further validation that our unique private cloud solution, which uses a hybrid cloud/on-premise approach to remote backup, is ideally suited for meeting the needs of their small medium business customers.”
