Key enhancements to the Ontrack PowerControls 6.1 solution include:

  • Enhancements to Ontrack PowerControls ExtractWizard Agents: Ontrack PowerControls ExtractWizard is a powerful tool that allows users to restore data from disk and tape backups to an alternative location, eliminating the need for a duplicate recovery server. Current support is included for Netbackup, IBM Tivoli Storage Manager, CA ARCServe, EMC Networker, HP OpenView Storage Data Protector, CommVault Galaxy, Ultrabac, Symantec BackupExec, and Microsoft NT Backup.

  • VSS support for Exchange 2007 and 2010: VSS is a Microsoft technology that allows access to a "point in time" snapshot of a logical drive, which is used by applications to back-up Exchange and other Microsoft systems, and is now mandatory in Microsoft Exchange 2010. Supporting this new technology ensures users can search and recover granular items from their most recent backup snapshots from Microsoft Exchange 2007 and 2010.

In today’s business environment, a solution that can save both time and money is critical to the bottom line. The Ontrack PowerControls solution diminishes the time spent searching for and restoring documents, resulting in significant time and cost savings for companies.
