BakBone Supports Linux 5.0

SAN DIEGO -- BakBone Software (BKBO.PK), a global provider of heterogeneous integrated data protection solutions, today announced planned support of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.0 across its product portfolio. Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) is the leading platform for open source computing. BakBone’s products currently support RHEL 4.0, with support for RHEL 5.0 already in development. Providing consistent and cohesive data protection capabilities across all platforms, BakBone’s data protection products enable enterprise customers to more easily embrace open source technologies, especially in mixed environments.

“Customer demand for Linux platform support is on the rise as organizations move increasingly more databases and mission-critical applications to Linux for ease-of-use and flexibility in computing,” said Lauren Whitehouse, analyst at ESG. “The challenge for enterprise customers running Linux in mixed environments is finding ease-of-use and flexibility in a single data protection solution. With multi-platform support and a strong Linux heritage, BakBone is uniquely positioned to help customers meet new and evolving demands for their data protection needs.”
