Joint development work has been done on integrating DataCore's SANsymphony's(tm) Snapshot functionality with Atempo's Time Navigator for file system level backups. In addition to the work already done, the two companies announced their plans for further work on this project, which includes a tighter integration at the file system level as well as at the block level. "Businesses are faced with an explosion of critical data and one of the biggest challenges facing these data-intensive businesses is to easily store, backup and restore their data at all times," said Philippe Boyon, vice president of Marketing at Atempo. "By co-ordinating our efforts, Atempo and DataCore can assure our joint customers a smooth storage networking operation." Atempo's Time Navigator is the software platform for high-performance backup and restore services. Specifically designed for corporate data centres (internal) and Internet data centres (outsourced), Time Navigator gives service providers new management tools for enhancing quality of service and delivering new value-added storage services. This solution offers a feature based on the concept of Time Navigation that allows customers to literally navigate through time continuously to easily access and restore any slice of data, at any level, with pinpoint accuracy. Time Navigator is designed for all the major network storage architectures, including network-attached storage (NAS) or storage area networks (SAN). Time Navigator is available on Windows NT/2000, Unix, Linux platforms, and is compatible with most automated libraries on the data storage market. Time Navigator provides backup and restore capabilities on libraries with SANsymphony snapshot tools. These snapshots allow LAN free/Server Less backup and restore, hence skipping the 'backup windows'. SANsymphony improves overall storage utilisation and eliminates costly storage-related disruptions, offers customers affordable remote mirroring alternatives for disaster recovery and leverages high availability features of existing storage assets. Through a fault-tolerant architecture, SANsymphony ensures enterprise-level data protection that eliminates single points of failure and offers advanced security for network-wide management and control of storage assets, while leveraging sophisticated caching to improve throughput and network performance. SANsymphony allows companies to distribute storage simply and non-disruptively to Unix, Windows, Linux, Mac OS and NetWare servers. "DataCore and Atempo are working together to ease the problems associated with data protection and recovery in multi-vendor storage deployments," said Ken Horner, vice president of marketing at DataCore.
