Although the meta-data is light weight, the large quantities of it make for an engineering challenge. This upgrade has taken an already impressively efficient technology at BitLeap for replicating constantly changing information offsite to new heights. It will also help support additional product and service capabilities in the future.
Carlisle, PA (PRWEB) September 3, 2008
BitLeap, LLC today announced an upgrade to one of BitLeap's core backup technologies, Rapid Replicator, which leads to significantly faster backup processing and replication times.
In addition to sending backup data offsite, the LeapServ backup appliance reports an array of extra information to BitLeap's offsite storage network. BitLeap's Rapid Replicator technology is responsible for sending various critical backup and service related information offsite, such as, information about backed up files, detailed backup reports and live service graphs. It is also the primary protocol for delivering LeapServ health information to BitLeap's operations center and the customer control panel. The upgrade is largely a result of improved transaction handling throughout BitLeap's innovative process of syncing customer data offsite. It will enable currently deployed LeapServs to support backing up larger amounts of data and greatly reduce total offsite backup times.
As the rich feature set of BitLeap's backup appliance expands, the amount of non-binary information that needs to be transferred out of the customer's location fast and securely increases. According to Lindsay Snider, Executive Engineer and Partner, "Although the meta-data is light weight, the large quantities of it make for an engineering challenge. This upgrade has taken an already impressively efficient technology at BitLeap for replicating constantly changing information offsite to new heights. It will also help support additional product and service capabilities in the future."
"The capabilities of BitLeap's rapid replicator technology are truly staggering." Guy Suter, BitLeap's CEO, says, "This is great news for customers because getting data copied offsite faster increases their safety."
Rapid Replicator Features:
- Faster overall offsite data backup replication
- Increased replication performance on high latency networks
- Ability for LeapServs to handle larger data volumes
- Decreased load on LeapServ hardware
BitLeap's innovative backup solution was released in 2004. This solution allows businesses of any size to implement automatic offsite data backups with ease. BitLeap's backup solution is hardware-based, allowing customers to efficiently backup and retain their current and desired historic data both locally for quick network recovery and offsite securely to two geographically separated data centers.
Today, Bitleap continues to redefine the industry with a managed server line called LeapServ, which administers the bandwidth-efficient backup service. For more information about BitLeap, please visit http://www.bitleap.com.
