Data Protection Solutions Introduces EzBackup™sa (Stand-Alone), Providing Instantaneous, Complete System and Data Recovery
EzBackup™sa replaces “legacy” devices by delivering “next generation” disk-to-disk backup and restore solution for small and remote offices.
Hollywood, FL, August 18, 2005 – Data Protection Solutions (DPS), leading provider of patented disk-to-disk (D2D) mirroring, backup and restore solutions, today announces the release of EzBackup™sa, the newest member of its EzBackup™ family of products. EzBackupsa is a USB-based, standalone device providing instantaneous and complete system and data recovery. Using EzBackup sa, small and remote offices can restore everything – including the operating system, preferences, settings, applications, and data – simply, seamlessly, and fast. EzBackup sa software facilitates three flexible, easy-to-configure routines: backup, restore, and schedule (for timed backups). Using a USB 2.0 connection, the full image time to completion is roughly a minute per Gigabyte – nearly 55 percent faster than other D2D solutions and more than five times faster than OS-dependent software solutions.
“EzBackup sa was developed specifically for small and remote offices that have traditionally relied on backup and restore technologies such as CD-R, Zip drives, and tape. All of these legacy devices have inherent shortcomings related to backup (usability, speed, reliability, limited recovery and capacity),” says Steven D. Hammond, senior vice president – sales and marketing. “Our goal was to deliver a data protection solution that was simple to install and manage, providing users with continuous ‘maintenance-free’ data protection. EzBackup sa eliminates the hassles and speed bumps associated with data backup and restore processes, enabling small and remote offices to finally retire and replace their flawed processes and legacy devices.”
For companies using “legacy” or alternative backup, mirroring, and restore devices and software, upgrading to EzBackup sa is easy, simple, and safe. After the initial install and first automated full image copy, users are free to discard their existing devices – there’s no longer any excuse or need to settle for inefficient or incomplete solutions. Data protection is seamless, transparent, and completely self-maintaining. With EzBackup sa, backup means just that: whatever the scenario – a power outage, a system failure, data corruption – you’re back up and running without any interruption in business processes.
Arun Taneja of the Taneja Group, says, “Managing small and/or remote offices require solutions that allow users to perform backups and restores without involving IT. This is particularly critical for the SMB and SOHO space, which represents 97 percent of businesses today, since few have dedicated IT support in house or externally. The sooner an organization upgrades its backup and restore technology, the better equipped it is to compete in today’s data-driven business world.”
