EMC Pulls Forward With Backup

The continuous data protection (CDP) party may have started a couple years ago, but EMC's none too concerned about arriving late, with three products in tow.

This week at Storage Networking World, the vendor plans to unveil RecoverPoint enterprise-class CDP software, along with an upgraded version of Legato NetWorker and Backup Advisor software for reporting and analysis.

"We dont see CDP as necessarily a new point product -- it's really a technology to help us evolve our backup and recovery archiving solutions," says Rob Emsley, director of product marketing for the EMC Software Group.

Here's a rundown on the new gear:

    RecoverPoint protects a variety of environments, whether Windows, Unix, file-based servers, or SANs. EMC is also trumpeting RecoverPoint's tight integration with Oracle and SQL Server applications.
