WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J. -- Syncsort, a global leader in data management, today unveiled Backup Express (BEX) 3.1, its scalable data protection solution for SMBs, SMEs and large Enterprises. The new release provides customers deploying server virtualization with unprecedented capabilities to meet the data protection requirements of the new environments. Ease of use, unparalleled performance and significant data reduction enable customers to reduce the storage requirements and the backup window by more than 90%. In addition, with BEX Instant Virtualization(TM), a server can be recovered nearly instantaneously without transferring data. The BEX architecture enables customers to realize the efficiencies of server consolidation while avoiding the typical roadblocks that are part of today's conventional storage and backup solutions.
The unique BEX 3.1 data protection architecture reduces the data being transferred to only those blocks that have changed, yet is low-impact on the server, putting little or no strain on the virtual infrastructure being protected. This allows backups of VMs to finish fast and be scheduled often. With BEX 3.1's exclusive multi-purpose snapshot technology, each backup is a read-writable 'full' backup. Customers can recover virtual machines almost instantly no matter how much data is being protected. A single BEX console manages the backup policy scheduling and the rapid restores of both virtual and physical machines.
