Cofio Software Inc., a world-class provider of unified backup and data protection software , today announced it has delivered the first Microsoft SQL Server protection solution with continuous consistency for maximizing SQL performance and uptime, and most granular Recovery Point Objectives (RPO), with zero-window backup and deduplication.

Cofio’s flagship product, AIMstor 2.4, now provides automatic identification of SQL data on a single machine, or in a network of MS SQL servers, syncs them to the AIMstor repository and uses its continuous source side deduplication technology to transfer data in real-time blocks for the most granular and fully consistent MS SQL Server RPO’s available today, with unified replication for real-time server failover as an option.

AIMstor is the first and only solution to fully unify all the key data protection technologies into a single application. In a single policy AIMstor is able to provide:

-Real-Time backups that are synchronized with the applications ensuring full application consistency. Granular recovery points of up to an hour with retention spanning years.

-CDP backups with an "up-to-the-second" image, allowing flexible retention spanning days.

-Real time replication providing immediate secondary image suitable for application failover.

-Touch-once technology enabling Real time backup, CDP and Replication to be used together without any additional CPU or network overhead on the source system.

-Backup and CDP to a common repository provides in-line “common block single instancing”, enabling dual technologies to be used without doubling storage.

-Real time capability total removes the backup window.

-Full restore from any incrementals, removing the need for full backups.

-Suitable for low bandwidth environments after initial synchronization

AIMstor can be installed and setup without ANY application downtime. Even the initial backup can be performed on a live and active system.

AIMstor’s latest technological breakthrough includes bandwidth performance enhancements that can accelerate backups 10X to 20X over legacy backup products, a 95% reduction in storage capacity, and simplicity for exponential increases in IT management efficiencies. AIMstor can also restore SQL databases at the disk write and read speeds available, network bandwidth permitting.

“We see lots of customers with SQL backup problems,” noted Mike Kornblum of MPAK Technology, a storage solution provider based in California. “With AIMstor, they get zero window backup, with recovery points down to one second ago, or one month ago, and recovery speed is amazing. More importantly, backups are done in real-time, and deduplication is done at source, so the SQL servers or the network never suffer performance degradation.”
