Zetta Systems Announces Innovative SnapWrite Feature For Instant Restores of Multi-Terabyte Databases

Share Article

SnapWrite technology allows instant snapshot access and instant restores of large databases.

Zetta Systems announces its revolutionary SnapWrite technology for Zetta Server. Zetta Server is a cost-effective OS that creates powerful SAN solutions with features such as Thin Provisioning, unlimited instantaneous snapshots and remote replication all using non-proprietary Intel hardware. SnapWrite solves the difficult customer problem of restoring large terabyte databases instantly, as well as non-disruptive write access to any snapshot.

Multiple SnapWrite copies can be created transparently with zero downtime. SnapWrite is suitable for production environments such as Exchange, SQL Server, Oracle and data warehouses in which substantive changes must be made with no down time. Before SnapWrite, the state of the art required significant downtime even with snapshot technology. Zetta Server with SnapWrite adds the dimension of time to storage instantly. If the newly created SnapWrite copy contains the wrong data the administrator can simply and instantly restore to another point in time.

“SnapWrite was developed because of our customer requirements for zero downtime. SnapWrite enhanced snapshots are space efficient, are created in milliseconds, are created on the fly and offer unprecedented savings in space while being cost effective,” stated Ganapathy Krishnan, President/CEO of Zetta Systems.

Bill Allen, President of ESS-Direct says, “Our customers will experience an exponential growth in data retained and managed over the next five years. They have demanded the flexibility of open systems hardware, they need to consolidate storage and they must decrease data restore windows. My customers require improved storage utilization, the freedom to re-assign storage personnel for other projects and to save their departments money. Zetta Server 3.2 allows us to snapshot Read/Write, do instantaneous rollbacks of any size data and do partial data restores like single mailbox restore. The solution is blazingly fast, simple to implement and frees up staff for other tasks.”
