YOSEMITE DEBUTS WIN 2000 DISASTER RECOVERY FOR TAPEWARE 6.2.
The nightmare of any system administrator or CIO: losing sensitive data critical to a business on a crashed server, bringing operations to a halt and costing the business money in terms of lost productivity. Until now, restoring the data to the server could be a gruesome process requiring hours to perform.
"Disaster Recovery has never been so simple to use. You can restore your system easily and reliably with just a full backup and three diskettes," said Nick Cornacchia, president of Yosemite Technologies. Disaster Recovery can be implemented in two different modes: either the administrator can initiate the recovery process from a set of floppy disks or ISO files burned to a CD, or through HP's One Button Disaster Recovery (OBDR) on HP's DAT drives. The administrator would boot off the disks or CD to initiate TapeWare to start the Disaster Recovery restoration program.
To recover the system using the One Button Disaster Recovery Option(OBDR), the system administrator merely presses the button on the OBDR compatible tape drive during boot-up. The server will then boot from the tape drive to start the disaster recovery procedures.
"With OBDR, you just press the button on your tape drive during boot up and watch your system completely restore itself," Cornacchia said.
Regardless of the method chosen, the system will then completely restore itself automatically to the exact configuration of your last full backup. In a fraction of the time a more traditional recovery process takes, Disaster Recovery will have restored the server to a fully functional status with all data intact.
The Disaster Recovery Option features enhance the powerful and flexible qualities of TapeWare 6.2 to allow for the most efficient use of network backup devices regardless of operating system, network platform or client/server status of the machine. The features are as follows:
* automatic, fully configured data restoral
* partition information for all local drives/volumes of each machine automatically added to all backups
* One-Button-Data-Recovery support for HP DAT drives with OBDR
* cross-platform support for Win9.x/NT, Win2000, NetWare 5.0 and below with the same interoperability as TapeWare.
TapeWare offers the ability to transfer data to and form multiple backup devices concurrently in a single backup or restore job across any combination of local buses and/or network connections from a single administration point. Network administrators can save hours of overtime and scheduling headaches while optimizing their data backup capabilities and network resources. TapeWare comes bundled with HP DAT drives to provide a complete hardware and software backup solution. The Disaster Recovery Option for Win95/98 starts at $59.00.
