Kashya Delivers Remote Replication, Disaster Recovery for Oracle Databases

KBX4000 provides efficient replication over large distances with multiple point in time snapshots, eliminating need for hot and cold backups

SAN JOSE, Calif. - June 21, 2004 - Kashya announced today the availability of its KBX4000 data replication appliance to replicate Oracle databases at a remote site, facilitating high-speed disaster recovery.

The appliance, which delivers data protection across heterogeneous storage environments while reducing the required bandwidth, is the first solution to provide long distance replication services (including asynchronous, point-in-time and multiple snapshot capabilities) for Oracle users. Implementing the KBX4000 allows Oracle administrators to centralize backups, to eliminate the database shutdown required in cold backups, and to eradicate the performance degradation that is present in hot backups, increasing overall database performance and efficiencies.

"For Oracle administrators needing to implement long distance disaster recovery and replication solutions to address hard and soft failure scenarios, the wait is over," said Mehran Hadipour, Vice President of Marketing, Kashya. "While other replication solutions provide on-site snapshot and point-in-time features, Kashya's KBX4000 is the first solution that provides efficient and effective long distance data replication for Oracle databases - eliminating the need for hot and cold Oracle backups - maximizing performance and availability."

The KBX4000 appliance delivers network-based bi-directional data replication over IP, with no distance limitation, featuring a full spectrum of replication modes - from synchronous, to asynchronous, to multiple point-in-time. The KBX4000 provides data replication across heterogeneous SAN, storage and server environments, provides policy-based data protection to support dynamic business priorities, and delivers dramatic savings in bandwidth, storage and operations costs. Database administrators seeking additional information and best practices relating to the operation of the KBX4000 solution with Oracle, or any other Kashya product information, should visit the company's web site at http://www.kashya.com.
