AIMstor SBS will aid the promotion and awareness of next generation data protection functionality to all IT organizations in a smart and cost effective manner.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 25, 2011
Cofio Software introduces AIMstor Small Business Server (SBS). This subscription based, free version of AIMstor has many high end features that most small organization need but can’t afford or manage with typical legacy backup strategies. This is not a feature limited free release, but a full featured version of AIMstor.
The design and purpose of AIMstor was to commoditize and unify high end features in data protection.
The small business has many of the same needs of large enterprises, but rarely the budget, IT expertise and resources to implement the solution to fill these needs. AIMstor SBS fills this need with an easy to deploy / use application that doesn’t need daily management oversight to accomplish recovery point objectives (RPO).
With the release of AIMstor SBS, end users can use this license, at no cost, with 2 servers / 3 workstations with up to a fully deduplicated 1 TB disk repository.
Features included in this release are as follows.
- Live and Batch (Scheduled) Backup
- Full Global Source and Target Based Deduplication
- Continuous Data Protection (CDP)
- Dissimilar Bare Metal Recovery (BMR) for Servers and Workstations
- Remote Backup with Smart Remote Sync
- File Versioning for Active Archiving and Recovery
- Granular Retention for all Data Types
- Easy to Use, Drag-n-Drop Workflow User Interface
Support is conducted through an actively managed forum site. Upgrades on a function and feature basis will be added on a subscription basis and as needed to include VMware vSphere support, SQL and Exchange Application Consistent Backup Agents, Live Server Replication, increased repository capacity, Information Security.
The target audiences for this release are the small business, IT-outsourcing groups, non-profits, and home users.
“We think the freemium concept for software is well proven for promoting new technology. AIMstor was designed to operate within a subscription model and a free version is ideal to promote AIMstor’s feature set in larger IT environments. AIMstor solves many challenges faced by all IT shops in a world were legacy data protection methods are the norm. AIMstor SBS will aid the promotion and awareness of next generation data protection functionality to all IT organizations in a smart and cost effective manner.” says Cofio’s Wayne Poynter, VP of Sales and Marketing.
