|New Version of Successful Data Rewinder Designed for Enterprise Data Centers; Leverages IT Investments through Integration with Industry Standard Backup Infrastructure
Burlington, MA, September 7, 2004 - XOsoft, a leading provider of continuous application availability software solutions, today announced the release of Enterprise Rewinder, a data center-class version of its successful Data Rewinder suite of continuous data protection solutions. Enterprise Rewinder provides enterprises with the highest application availability, while minimizing data loss and time to recovery. In case of corruption, it enables administrators to instantaneously rewind affected application servers to the most recent consistent state. XOsoft also announced details of its strategy to integrate Enterprise Rewinder with major industry standard backup and snapshot-based solutions, which will allow its customers to protect and leverage their existing IT investments.
"Enterprises are becoming increasingly dependent on business applications, and even the shortest outages may have a severe financial impact," says Steve, Duplessie, Founder and Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. "Only the most well-managed data protection solutions will be able to effectively minimize downtime and enable the fastest possible recovery."
XOsoft's Enterprise Rewinder answers that challenge. Application-aware Data Rewinder 2.0 clients for Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL, Oracle Database and any other type application servers continuously monitor data center application status and notify administrators once a problem is detected. The centralized Enterprise Rewinder Management GUI then allows networks administrators to instantaneously rewind corrupted application servers to the most recent consistent state. Application server rewind may even be configured to occur automatically, once a fault is detected.
XOsoft's strategy is to complement, rather than replace existing backup solutions. The company plans to integrate Enterprise Rewinder with a number of leading industry standard backup and snapshot-based solutions over the coming months. The first step has been taken, and complete integration with Veritas Backup Exec is available today. Enterprise Rewinder users may monitor Veritas backup processes, cover gaps between periodic backups and achieve seamless protection against data center application corruption.
"Server and application outages severely impact productivity and profitability. Minimizing data loss and time to recovery are therefore the most important factors that technology providers must address," says XOsoft founder and CEO Leonid Shtilman. "XOsoft is the first to offer enterprises a suite of solutions that addresses both of these critical issues. Enterprise Rewinder can be fully integrated with their existing backup infrastructure to consistently protect the availability and ensure the instantaneous recovery of a wide range of business applications at the data center level."
An entry-level package comprised of the Enterprise Rewinder Management GUI and 10 Data Rewinder 2.0 clients is priced at $25,000 and is available immediately. XOsoft will demonstrate the new product suite at booth #207 of the Storage Decisions Conference held during September 20-21 at the Chicago Hilton.
