 MAYNARD'S ARCHIVE VP SYSTEM OFFERS
 PROVEN MIGRATION PATH FOR SMALL NETWORKS
 LAKE MARY, Fla., June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Maynard Electronics, an Archive(R) company, today introduced the ArchiveVP(R) tape backup system with QICstream(R) 4.0 software. The Archive VP product is the first QIC-standard system designed specifically for growing networks thanks to a built-in upgrade path for maximum investment protection. The system is available immediately with suggested retail prices ranging from $995 to $1,795.
 Delivering up to 250MB capacity for PC, PS/2(A) and compatible systems, the Archive VP system offers full support for NetWare(A) 2.x, 3.x and NetWare Lite(A) systems. Other features of the system include disk-based backup catalogs to quickly locate a single file or an entire backup set, Fast File Access capability, open file backup support, session logging for unattended backups and a new user interface with pull-down menus.
 QICstream 4.0 software protects the user's investment in existing tape libraries and ensures simple migration as the user's capacity and functionality needs grow. The system will read existing tapes created with QICstream version 2.01, 1.92vb for ArchiveVP systems and file-by- file tapes created with FasTape(R) 5.0 software. QICstream 4.0 software utilizes the Maynard Tape Format and can be read by MaynStream(R) tape backup systems (version 3.0 or later), which offer up to 5GB of storage. The Maynard Tape Format was chosen by Microsoft(A) as the basis of the logical tape format for Windows NT(A), and was recently adopted by the QIC Committee as the recommended format for interchange of data between systems.
 "The new ArchiveVP system takes much of the complexity out of the process of choosing a small-network tape backup system," said Chris Tipton, vice president of Maynard's Systems Business Group. "It lets a user select a top-grade system for current backup needs with complete assurance that it can easily accommodate network growth. The ArchiveVP with QICstream 4.0 system delivers maximum data protection and maximum value."
 While the system comes in 60MB and 150MB configurations, users can boost these capacities to 100MB and 250MB respectively with extended- length tapes. Full NetWare support means users can quickly back up and restore their servers with complete protection for NetWare bindery files, directory/file attributes, trustees, directory disk space limitations and Apple(A) File Protocol(A) (AFP) folders and files.
 The systems' backup cataloging feature makes it easy to locate a single file or an entire backup set, eliminating the need to manually search through multiple tapes or tape libraries to find files. Catalogs are stored on disk, recording the name of the tape and backup sets, and can include information about directories, files names, dates and attributes. Cataloging also enables Fast File Access to quickly advance a tape to the location of a desired file and begin restoring the data.
 Open file backup support ensures that network bindery and other system files are backed up either while the network is running or via a "skipped" script during network slack time. Session logging creates a detailed log of all backup and restore operations, providing key information especially on unattended operations. Other features include flexible file section, unattended backup, password protection, context sensitive help, immediate backup verification and expanded memory support. Current ArchiveVP system users can purchase QICstream 4.0 software for $79 through the Maynard software upgrade program. Upgrades are free to customers who purchased systems after March 1, 1992.
