Active Storage Rolls Upgraded iPhone App

Torrance-based Active Storage, a venture-backed developer of RAID products for Apple computers, said this week that it has released an upgraded iPhone application, which allows its customers to monitor its products directly from their phone. Among updates to the software are better connectivity and support options in the case of component failures in the firm's storage devices. The firm said that the ability to monitor its products from the iPhone--which is not widely available from other storage manufacturers--has been a bit hit with its customers. The firm is backed by Intel Capital, Mission Ventures, and Valhalla Partners, and was founded by former Apple executives.
