Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) December 18, 2006
TimeSpring® Software Corp. announced the availability of its TimeData® continuous data protection software (CDP) for faster 64-bit applications running on the Microsoft® Windows platform. TimeData continuous data protection software for SQL Server, Exchange, SharePoint Services and NTFS allows administrators to rapidly recover any or all lost, corrupt or deleted documents.
Unlike other backup systems, including Microsoft DPM software, TimeSpring's TimeData continuously captures all data as it changes in real-time to an onsite or offsite repository. There are no protection gaps, no scheduling requirements, no backup related system slowdowns and no backup windows for the administrator to manage. TimeData improves and simplifies the management of data retention policies in line with Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) and regulatory requirements. With the addition of native 64-bit TimeData CDP software enterprises can have unified continuous protection for both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
64-bit systems have expanded memory and faster processing speeds than the 32-bit systems that have been shipping since the '90s. They can accommodate faster databases and applications, as well as larger data files. The increased power of 64-bit systems is also driving server consolidation and reducing costs, including management costs.
"64-bit computing is becoming more prevalent with most new servers now being deployed based on 64-bit technology," said David Hill, Principal of The Mesabi Group, a respected analyst firm specializing in IT investments. "As users upgrade their underlying computer platforms, it is a good time to think about upgrading their data protection from traditional backup or snapshot systems to full continuous data protection."
TimeSpring's 5-Star rated* TimeData CDP software is distinguished by its ease of use, affordability and tight integration with key Microsoft applications. Among the various CDP products, TimeSpring's TimeData is a "true continuous data protection" solution that automatically captures all data changes in real-time to a time-dimensioned repository. "Near" CDP systems are based on limited snapshot technology that does not capture all changes in real-time, thus leaving users vulnerable to protection gaps. As a file-based application, TimeData is designed to work with Microsoft applications. By recognizing critical application events, such as transaction commits and database checkpoints as they occur, TimeData allows users to restore their applications to full operation faster than is possible with alternative block-based systems.
TimeSpring's native 64-bit TimeData CDP software is immediately available for SQL Server and NTFS through authorized TimeSpring business partners. SharePoint and Exchange support are expected be available in the first quarter of 2007.
