For customers we host and those with remote offices, we’ve found this to be a big advantage over traditional methods.” Brian DeMuro, F5 Solutions

Cofio Software Inc., a world-class provider of unified backup and data protection software, introduced TransRepoTM, a new transportable repository function, in its currently shipping release of AIMstorTM Version 2.5, the only truly unified data protection solution in today's market.

AIMstor provides the ability to place a data repository on any Windows or Linux system. Now with TransRepo for Remote Backup, AIMstor has the ability to seed a fully deduplicated backup, CDP, and file archive data set onto a repository, then unmount the repository, ship the storage system to a remote site, and remount it onto another AIMstor repository at a remote site.

Once there, administrators have the ability to restore any type of data from any point in time, for full system recovery, or specific recovery, such as the OS from last week and the SQL application from 2 minutes ago, or entire virtual machines from a few seconds ago.

The repository is encrypted using AES-256 bit algorithm to safeguard against the storage system being lost in shipment.

The TransRepo can also be used to recover large data sets that are not feasibly transmitted over wire in enough time. Simply unmount the repository from one site and transport to another site, and restore all systems locally.

AIMstor v2.5 already has received accolades for its Smart Remote Sync (SRS) capability, allowing highly efficient remote backups over WAN lines from central to remote sites to increase corporate recoverability.

TransRepo was designed with the idea that many data sets must be synced locally, but transported remotely via standard shipping methods. TransRepo and SRS represent only part of the AIMstor solution, which includes fully unified real-time and batch backup, CDP (continuous data protection), global deduplication at source and target, archive with file version control, real-time replication and dissimilar bare metal restore.

Brian DeMuro of F5 Solutions in New York noted: “We normally use AIMstor for recovery over the network, but for large datasets, it’s simply faster to unmount the repository to a 2TB USB HDD, or a small RAID, and bring it to the disaster recovery facility. For customers we host and those with remote offices, we’ve found this to be a big advantage over traditional methods.”

TransRepo is a feature within the AIMstor Workflow User Interface, a Drag ‘n Drop approach to setting up entire workflow for backup, business continuity, disaster recovery and compliance archive in minutes.
