Palo Alto (păl`ō ăl`tō), city (1990 pop. 55,900), Santa Clara co., W Calif.; inc. 1894. Although primarily residential, Palo Alto has aerospace, electronics, and advanced research industries. , Calif. -- Atempo, Inc., a leader in data protection for information lifecycle management Information Lifecycle Management refers to a wide-ranging set of strategies for administering storage systems on computing devices. Specifically, four categories of storage strategies may be considered under the auspices of ILM. (ILM), today announced the availability of Time Navigator(TM) Version 4.0, a data protection solution delivering unified data management across all tiers of storage. Time Navigator 4.0 integrates the latest snapshot management, replication and advanced disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T (Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape) Refers to backing up data on disks first and tape (or optical disc) second. Backing up onto tape is performed at less frequent intervals than from disk to disk. See D2D and virtual tape. ) virtual library technologies into its high-performance backup and restore architecture. This integration of advanced technologies makes matching data protection service levels with the appropriate tier of storage a simple and easy to perform process. With Time Navigator 4.0, storage managers will now be able to manage data protection between all storage layers, from primary disk to archive media according to according to

"With Time Navigator, Atempo is delivering what customers have been asking for: the ability to tailor data protection schemes according to the data's business value, in full compliance with an increasingly stringent regulatory environment," said Atempo's chief executive officer, Rick Wojcik. "Atempo is leading the way in automating the capture, migration and retention of data across all storage layers, and across a wide range of operating systems Operating systems can be categorized by technology, ownership, licensing, working state, usage, and by many other characteristics. In practice, many of these groupings may overlap. , databases and duplication technologies. Time Navigator delivers all this in a package that is simple and easy to operate."
Time Navigator 4.0 leads with an impressive range of new capabilities:
--Time Navigator SnapBackup: Delivers full centralized management of heterogeneous snapshots, including the ability to transparently navigate and restore across snapshots. Time Navigator tracks data in all layers, offering image-oriented navigation through the data, regardless of where it is stored, and without requiring the administrator to know where the data is stored.
SnapBackup leverages existing snapshot technologies, including Microsoft's Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS See Vcc. ), Network Appliance (1) A specialized device for use on a network. For example, Web servers, cache servers and file servers can be implemented as general-purpose computers with the appropriate software or as network appliances, which are computers dedicated to a single function and cannot do anything Snapshot and Network Appliance SnapVault.
--Time Navigator Replica: Delivers asynchronous Refers to events that are not synchronized, or coordinated, in time. The following are considered asynchronous operations. The interval between transmitting A and B is not the same as between B and C. The ability to initiate a transmission at either end. replication across heterogeneous systems to provide users with an immediately available copy of live data on a secondary server. Time Navigator Replica will enable users to use electronic vaulting to create a hot site for disaster recovery; manually failover to a replicated server if a primary server is down; and create a similar system on a secondary server for development or test purposes.
--System-independent Archiving: Time Navigator provides a system-independent archiving system that is fully integrated as a tier of data protection. This archiving module now includes new centralized control 1. In air defense, the control mode whereby a higher echelon makes direct target assignments to fire units. 2. In joint air operations, placing within one commander the responsibility and authority for planning, directing, and coordinating a military operation or group/category of and access, enhanced search features, and WORM support for archiving fixed-content data.
Data Base File Tech Group (DBFT DBFT Data Base File Tech (company) ), a storage service provider known as "the Fort Knox of the North," whose facility houses Canada's Federal Office of Critical Infrastructure Protection Department of Defense (DOD) program to identify and protect assets critical to the Defense Transportation System. Loss of a critical asset would result in failure to support the mission of a combatant commander. and Emergency Preparedness and backup for the Canadian Joint Rescue Coordination Center A primary search and rescue facility suitably staffed by supervisory personnel and equipped for coordinating and controlling search and rescue and/or combat search and rescue operations. The facility is operated unilaterally by personnel of a single Service or component. , has already installed Time Navigator 4.0 for its massive archiving facility.
According to Michael Weston, president and chief executive officer of DBFT, "Atempo's data protection system is essential to the success of DBFT's business.
