Atempo Announces Time Navigator 4.0; Time Navigator 4.0 responds to industry's need for an integrated data protection system for unified data management across all tiers of storage.

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Atempo, Inc., a leader in data protection for information lifecycle management (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) 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 its lifecycle value and perform fast, accurate restores from any storage tiers with one common user interface.

"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, 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), Network Appliance Snapshot and Network Appliance SnapVault.

--Time Navigator Replica: Delivers asynchronous 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 and access, enhanced search features, and WORM support for archiving fixed-content data.

Data Base File Tech Group (DBFT), a storage service provider known as "the Fort Knox of the North," whose facility houses Canada's Federal Office of Critical Infrastructure Protection and Emergency Preparedness and backup for the Canadian Joint Rescue Coordination Center, 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. With Time Navigator, we are able to provide our customers with the higher data availability, deliver better recovery points, and offer the highest SLAs at the lowest cost of storage. Our clients rely on us meet the new data protection realities including managing unrelenting data growth, meeting emerging regulatory compliance laws and rampant information security threats. Time Navigator is a core tool enabling DBFT to meet its objectives."

"Atempo's focus on fast and accurate restores from any tier of storage media is right on the money," said Peter Gerr, senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. "Time Navigator delivers the core data protection and management capabilities essential for CIOs to implement tiered data protection solutions that best match their data's changing value over time."


Time Navigator Version 4.0 is shipping now and it supports all the major UNIX platforms, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows and Linux platforms and it is also compatible with most automated libraries available in the data storage market.
