RollBack Rx is an instant PC Time Machine, making PCs uncrashable
Blaine, WA (PRWEB) May 20, 2013
We all know that awful feeling rising in our stomachs when we experience the Windows Blue Screen of Death. A million thoughts come racing into our heads about the potential loss of data and the tedious task of fixing the PC. Although crashes are as old as computers, Horizon DataSys has now perfected its Roll-Back technology that could finally send system crashes to the same landfill where floppy disks have been dumped.
The Horizon DataSys development team was in attendance at Interop 2013 in Las Vegas last week where they offered a "Crash and Win" contest. The promotion encouraged the advanced IT community to crash a fully-functional computer which was protected with RollBack Rx version 10.1 (beta). “We chose to launch our beta at Interop, because we wanted the tech community to put RollBack Rx through its most rigorous testing,” stated Andrew Shen, VP of Software Development. “The techs that attend Interop are a savvy group, very creative and knowledgeable. But even they've been unsuccessful at crashing a typical PC to a point where it's unrecoverable.” The new RollBack Rx v10.1 Beta passed with flying colors as it was always able to restore the computer back to an earlier point in time within seconds without losing any critical data.
The Horizon DataSys booth was a big draw for IT professionals who are familiar with restoring workstations using time-intensive legacy techniques such as formatting, imaging, and re-installing Windows from scratch. They were amazed at the speed of RollBack Rx as well as how it was able to recover files from a crashed computer state – all within mere seconds.
RollBack Rx is already an industry-leading solution that's being used by organizations such as Intel, NVidia, NCR, and Bloomberg to maintain their enterprise end-point workstations and to keep them optimally configured. "RollBack Rx is really indispensable in any environment where a crash or sub-optimal performance could mean costly downtime and servicing," explains Lyle Patel, the President. "But at $69 for a single user licence it's something anyone with a PC can afford."
RollBack Rx makes crashproofing PCs easy. Its latest build RollBack Rx v10.1 will have over 180 additional enhancements from its previous version. RollBack Rx is marketed as a replacement for Windows System Restore (now called Windows Refresh and Reset in Windows 8) and its "snapshots" are akin to Windows restore points, enabling the complete restoration of the hard drive back to an unlimited number of system states. In brief, RollBack Rx is an instant PC Time Machine, making PCs uncrashable.
RollBack Rx v10.1 is scheduled for official launch toward the end of 2013 Q2. It's currently undergoing extensive beta testing. Among many other new features, RollBack Rx v10.1 will offer full GPT partition support, enhanced SSD compatibility, UEFI BIOS integration, protection for multiple physical hard drives, and full functionality on Windows 8 32-bit and 64-bit systems. Additionally, RollBack Rx v10.1 in conjunction with Horizon DataSys' Drive Cloner version 6 will also enable users to capture RollBack Rx snapshots onto Drive Cloner images to facilitate off-site backup and storage.
Horizon Datasys will next be displaying their technology at the CeBit summit in Sydney, Australia, the EduTECH 2013 Conference in Brisbane, Australia, and the Educar Educador Conference in Brazil. The "Crash and Win" challenge will be extended to all attendees at these events:
