EVault Advances Online Backup and Recovery

New product innovations extend company's leadership position

PHOENIX, AZ -- 04/12/2005 -- EVault, Inc., a leading provider of secure, online backup and recovery solutions, today announced significant advancements in its product line. Topping the list is the release of Version 5 of both its EVault InfoStage® online backup and recovery software and the EVault Protect managed service offering. EVault also announced a new reporting suite as well as new versions of its desktop agent and e-mail archive solutions.

EVault InfoStage licensed software takes full advantage of disk-to-disk technology to cost-effectively back up data from all locations to a remote or centralized storage server. EVault Protect is EVault's managed online backup and recovery service that backs up an organization's business-critical data to a secure off-site data center managed by EVault or an authorized channel partner. Safely off-site, the encrypted data is available online at all times for immediate, user-initiated recovery.

What's New in EVault InfoStage Version 5

EVault InfoStage Version 5 offers several new features and capability enhancements. These include:

  • Parallel restore -- simultaneous restores can be executed from the same storage vault, speeding the recovery process of large numbers of files or data from multiple backup sessions.

  • Advanced backup agents for Exchange, SQL, and Oracle -- these agents offer improved delta block backup performance, finer granularity backups, such as the ability to back up individual mailboxes, as well as one-pass restores.

  • Add storage on the fly -- seamlessly scale up capacity of back-end storage vaults or copy data between vaults without interruption or performance degradation.

  • Integrated Vault Backup Agent -- backup data stored on the vault can be easily migrated to disk, tape, or a second off-site storage vault using EVault's superior delta block technology.

  • Industry-leading platform support -- EVault InfoStage Version 5 offers expanded platform support for SUSE Linux and iSeries V5R3. EVault also supports the leading server and desktop platforms including Windows, Netware, Solaris, Red Hat Linux, HP-UX and IBM AIX.

  • Enhanced iSeries backups -- features a second hot backup method via EVault's proprietary database trigger technology. Once a backup is initiated and underway, the trigger recognizes database changes and creates a snapshot in as little as two seconds regardless of database size.
