DALLAS, TX / August 26, 2008 – – OpenTech Systems, Inc., a leading provider of Disaster Recovery Assurance and Storage Management Solutions for IBM z/OS centric data centers, announced the addition of a real-time recovery monitoring capability to its DR/Xpert® Graphical User Interface.

OpenTech System's DR/Xpert now includes extensive real-time monitoring of backup and
recovery jobs and monitors the recovery of critical application datasets in real-time. The addition of a real-time monitor distinguishes DR/Xpert from similar products which only offer a static graphical interface for viewing reports after the recovery process is completed. DR/Xpert’s recovery monitor uses color coded progress bars associated with each job, application and dataset so the user can see, at a glance, just how the recovery is progressing. In addition, the real-time monitor uses color coded pie charts to display the recovery progress in terms of gigabytes recovered and gigabytes remaining as well as datasets recovered and datasets remaining. Each recovery job along with the application datasets being recovered is listed and each changes color when it has been recovered.

“The addition of real-time monitoring to DR/Xpert’s already robust graphical interface provides the user with the unparalleled ability to monitor recovery job progress in real-time and quickly determine which recovery processes have been completed and those still in process. You can actually watch as your critical datasets are automatically recovered to a user selected recovery point”, according to Don Bolton, OpenTech’s Director of Technical Services. “DR/Xpert’s real-time recovery monitoring provides the user with the ability to view individual critical datasets by name, application and backup aggregate and view detailed reports quickly and easily. First, we made recovery easy and now we have made it even easier”.
