EzBackup’s D2D Controller Delivers Fast, Fail-safe Restores
Patent-pending Hidden Device Technology ensures integrity of desktop unit’s data
Hollywood, FL, November 19, 2004 – “EzBackup’s a dream come true for every computer user who ever lost a hard drive,” said Data Protection Solutions by Arco CEO Itzik Levy. “We’re bringing the industry’s new data storage standard, disk-to-disk (D2D), down to the desktop, eliminating failed backups, and, even more crucial, ensuring successful restores in the process.”
The OS-independent EzBackup’s execution of the D2D architecture, Levy noted, enables the use of all standard ATA hard drives, up to and beyond the largest ones currently available. EzBackup’s two drives may be of varying sizes and from different manufacturers. “We’ve applied DPS by Arco’s patented and patent-pending technologies that have secured leadership for us in the RAID community to the development of EzBackup,” he said. “The potential demand for a desktop D2D backup solution in the SOHO and SMB markets is huge, and EzBackup fills that requirement in a completely unprecedented way; its scheduling capabilities provide users with completely hands-off data protection.”
Arun Taneja of The Taneja Group noted, “Just because a company is small or medium size does not mean that its data is any less valuable than the largest of the large company’s data. The data protection issues faced with these smaller companies today are no different either, except they need a product that is easy to deploy and to use. EzBackup has all the ingredients to be such a product.” Levy noted that EzBackup eliminates the costs of data loss by preventing it in the first place. “The number one cause of data loss, hardware malfunction, is eliminated by insuring that all of the data is backed up to a second drive. A fully bootable image copy ensures that the system can be restored in a matter of seconds, versus hours. EzBackup’s controller, besides removing the backup load from the host CPU, requires no drivers, IRQs or TSRs.” Data security is greatly enhanced, he added, through the application of the company’s patent-pending Hidden Device Technology (HDT). “HDT’s unique capability renders the backup drive invisible to the system, except for very short periods of time when backup, restore, or first time image is performed. It’s also invisible to the user, requiring no customer intervention or scheduled commands. We’re providing an easy-to-use, Enterprise-class solution at minimal cost, whether the user’s a SOHO, SMB or Enterprise customer.” EzBackup (MSRP $599) is shipping now.
Headquartered in south Florida, Data Protection Solutions by Arco, was founded in 1989. It develops and manufactures a full line of data protection solutions and D2D products for the Enterprise, SMB and SOHO applications. As the value of data grows exponentially, the high failure rate of tape-based backups and restores is an increasing threat. DPS is dedicated to the preservation of corporate and personal data through expanding the availability of cost-effective disk storage, which now provides desktop users up to terabyte capacity. The company has distributors and resellers throughout the United States, Europe and the Far East. Its EzBackup and DupliDisk product lines have been awarded several patents, with others pending. DPS serves both direct and OEM markets with online, near line and archive-level data storage and protection.
