UltraBac Software (http://www.ultrabac.com) today released UBDR Gold v3.0, bringing true dissimilar hardware restore to market. UBDR Gold end-users will no longer need to buy and maintain identical hardware spares as part of their disaster recovery readiness plan, which can help cut expenses. Other significant enhancements to the company’s award-winning software include expanded virtual machine restore support and Online Index based restore capability.

UBDR Gold now offers customers the ultimate in disaster recovery flexibility with the addition of both dissimilar hardware and full support for every type of virtual recovery. UBDR Gold v3.0 can restore the image of a failed server or workstation to a wide variety of drives and controllers, including SCSI, RAID, IDE, SATA, as well as PCI and EISA buses. UBDR Gold can easily restore to a machine with a different Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) and processor. This is possible even when a failed server is a single processor and the new machine is a multiprocessor. Dissimilar hardware restores are no longer a disaster recovery obstacle. With UBDR Gold’s physical-to-physical (P2P) disaster recovery capability, users can now replace a failed server with any spare machine that is available.

In 2005, UltraBac Software broke new ground with UBDR Gold v2.0 by providing the first Windows backup software to offer physical-to-virtual (P2V) based disaster recoveries. Version 3.0 expands on P2V to also include virtual-to-virtual (V2V) and virtual-to-physical (V2P) restores. With V2V and V2P, administrators literally have every virtual disaster recovery option at their disposal. Restoring and emulating a failed machine virtually can be executed in as little as 15 minutes.

Further expanding on its virtual machine support, UBDR Gold v3.0 also integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2. Users of VMware and Microsoft Virtual Server have a new and affordable option for disaster recovery protection from either natural or man made disasters that can incapacitate or destroy a computer facility. To restore a physical server virtually, an administrator need only create a new target virtual environment on the host for the server to be restored. Restores can be 100 percent scripted or an administrator can boot from the universal UBDR Gold CD and run the recovery wizard. Quick and easy restores can be performed from tape, disk, libraries, UNC path, SAN, NAS, USB/FireWire devices, FTP, or TSM servers. No special setup or other considerations are required when recovering to a virtual environment.

“Our latest version of UBDR Gold demonstrates our commitment to pushing the envelope in backup and disaster recovery innovation," said Morgan Edwards, CEO and founder of UltraBac Software. "With complete focus on backup and disaster recovery, our mission is to provide customers the best data protection that money can buy. Our commitment to this goal is evidenced by UBDR Gold v3.0’s full array of virtual options and true dissimilar hardware restore capability, which showcase our industry leading technology to users in the Windows environment."

Version 3.0 also supports restores from Online Indexes. This new functionality enables even quicker restores by allowing an administrator to search backup indexes locally or remotely. When restoring from tape or other sequential media, being able to utilize regular backup indexes will significantly decrease the time to locate disk partitions and/or individual files for disaster recovery.

UltraBac Disaster Recovery (UBDR) Pro and Gold are sophisticated disaster recovery products that use cutting edge, image-based technology to provide lightning fast recoveries. UBDR Pro and Gold were specifically designed to quickly and easily restore one or more disk partitions for Windows machines with no bootable operating system. Restoring individual files is a built-in, user enabled option. From single server to a data center, UBDR Gold provides the fastest and most flexible technology to bring failed servers and workstations back online in the absolute minimum of time (up to 3GB/minute restore speed). Offered as extra cost options, advanced enterprise features unique to UBDR Gold include backup/restore for FTP devices, Tivoli Storage Manager servers, and support for a full spectrum of media libraries.

Pricing for UBDR Gold starts at USD $995 per server.
