It seems just about every storage vendor wants to get into the replication business these days.
With data booming and the need to protect it growing, it's a rare storage vendor that doesn't offer data replication technology.
Adaptec's Snap Appliance division this week took the wraps off the latest product for companies hoping to get a grip on far-flung data, and NSI software followed with a refresh of its replication offering.
Adaptec announced the availability of Snap Enterprise Data Replicator (Snap EDR), a data replication and management software suite that lets customers move, protect and report on their data throughout a distributed enterprise.
Adaptec software product marketing manager Julie Herd Goodman said the product offers remote data protection for the 60% of data that resides outside data centers, with no onsite support needed.
Priced $2,700-$4,800 per agent, Goodman said Snap EDR offers features unavailable in competitive offerings, including file access security across multiple platforms.
Snap EDR offers features such as automated data movement, intelligent data replication, centralized policy-based data management, comprehensive data discovery and reporting, and secure data replication and transfer.
NSI Does a Double-Take
NSI Software, meanwhile, announced the latest version of its Double-Take host-based data replication and failover software for Windows IT environments.
New features in Double-Take 4.4 include intelligent data compression, improved system resource management, server filtering in the management console, email notification and Web-based software update checks.
Double-Take 4.4 also includes new advanced protection capabilities for Microsoft Exchange server. The new Exchange-specific capabilities include fully automatic failover and failback of Exchange mailboxes and services so users experience minimal disruption during a failure of an Exchange server.
Double-Take 4.4 is available for all tiers of the Microsoft Server family and is priced starting at $2,495 per license.
