"With AIMstor v2.5 we can move data between sites with existing bandwidth and save valuable compute time and disk resources,” Bryce Kerker, of Burkhart Dental

Cofio Software introduces Smart-Remote-SyncTM (SRS) in its upcoming AIMstorTM Version 2.5, to be released in September 2011.

AIMstor’s SRS technology addition greatly improves efficiency of IT resources and transfer times when moving data from one location to another via a wide area network (WAN) to a disk based repository for Data Protection, Disaster Recovery (DR) or Searchable Archive.

AIMstor v2.5 has been optimized for Remote Office Backup, Backup for DR and for Managed Service Providers (MSP) offering remote backup services to their clients.

Today’s IT professionals and Backup Service Providers need solutions to effectively move data from one location to another with minimal impact to resources. To what extent this efficiency is achieved relies upon the intelligence and awareness within and between repositories throughout the enterprise.

SRS enables synchronization between multiple data repositories and differs from conventional backup approaches by the granularity in which it performs the synchronization between systems. Unlike legacy backup products, SRS goes beyond the all or nothing approach. SRS enables you to synchronize only the parts of the repository that you require and with full control of the periodicity at which in happens. Consequently you may choose to perform hourly SRS transfers of application data but weekly SRS transfers of OS images.

With AIMstor v2.5, data is scanned only once from servers and workstations using Global Source Deduplication, further reducing IT resources. Disk repositories then move data to any number of local and remote repositories according to user defined policies.

Tuned for WAN environments, Smart-Remote-Sync can utilize Encrypted SSL connectivity between end-points, single port firewall connectivity, source and end point de-duplication and bandwidth throttling.

“Transferring backup and recovery data between sites has been problematic for Burkhart and spending more dollars for increased bandwidth due to inefficient backup products isn’t an option. With AIMstor v2.5 we can move data between sites with existing bandwidth and save valuable compute time and disk resources,” says Bryce Kerker, of Burkhart Dental’s IT group.

This intelligence behind AIMstor’s SRS aids IT organizations to meet data protection service level agreements with minimal impact to IT resources and in many cases allows for remote backup without added expense of larger bandwidth resource. Smart-Remote-Sync is a simple component within AIMstor’s Workflow User Interface, a Drag ‘n Drop approach to setting up entire workflow for data protection and archive in minutes.

Availability and Pricing
AIMstor v2.5 is scheduled to be released this month to all new clients and users under current maintenance support agreements. Smart-Remote-SyncTM comes at no added cost and is a new integrated feature within the AIMstor Data Protection Suite.
