Instavia Adds PAUSE-and-RESUME to dBeamer!DPM (for Instant Data Recovery from Microsoft DPM)

Share Article

Instavia Software has significantly increased the data BEAMing reliability of its dBeamer(TM) and dBeamer!DPM products by featuring the newly added PAUSE-and-RESUME capability. In the event of a network interruption during the course of data BEAMing, dBeamer(TM) and dBeamer!DPM would PAUSE the operation, so that it can be resumed at a later time.

HA-On-Demand using Microsoft DPM

When recovering millions of files from Microsoft Data Protection Manager, not only would the recovering files become immediately accessible by applications, the BEAMing operation would automatically pause when there is a network interruption.

Instavia Software, an Instant Data Delivery company, posted today a new version 1.5 update of its dBeamer(TM) and dBeamer!DP products. The updated dBeamer(TM) and dBeamer!DPM include a reliability feature known as PAUSE-and-RESUME. When dBeamer!DPM is employed to recover large databases or millions of files from Microsoft Data Protection Manager (DPM), not onlly would the recovering files appear instantly at the recovering server and become immediately accessible by applications, the BEAMing (instant recovery) operation would automatically pause when there is network interruption. During the interruption, dBeamer(TM) would attempt to reconnect with the DPM server. After a set duration of failed retries, the operation would enter a PAUSED state. This allows the IT administrator to repair the network interruption issue and resume the data BEAMing operation from where it was paused, without having to start the process all over again from the very beginning.

While the operation is in the PAUSED state, file system requests for data that have not yet been recovered would be timed out. The processing of new transactions during this exceedingly rare double failure scenario would be temporarily interrupted. Upon resumption of the data BEAMing operation, the processing of new transactions would also be automatically resumed.

dBeamer(TM) now supports:

  •      PAUSE-and-RESUME
  •      Instant BEAMing of millions of files and folders
  •      Distributed File System (DFS)
  •      Cluster Shared Volume (CSV)

IT administrators can use dBeamer!DPM for:

  •      Instant recovery of file servers, Hyper-V machines, Exchange Storage Groups, SQL databases and SharePoint servers
  •      Fast recovery drills
  •      Instant dta migration
