SonicWall Unveils CDP Appliance

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- SonicWALL, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNWL), today introduced to its Continuous Data Protection (CDP) series the capability of using a CDP appliance as an offsite data backup solution. CDP Box-to-Box Backup provides a comprehensive solution for backing up and restoring data remotely without using third-party offsite facilities, giving users and managed service providers control over their data backup and recovery solutions.

SonicWALL CDP Box-to-Box Backup is an offsite backup and recovery solution operating in conjunction with local SonicWALL CDP devices. The SonicWALL Box-to-Box Backup solution automatically receives data from CDP appliances on a continual basis. All data is securely transmitted and encrypted with an AES 256-bit encryption key. In the event that a local disaster occurs or the local site CDP unit fails, IT administrators can recover data from the remote CDP device through a simple-to-use interface.

In a typical configuration, a local CDP appliance backs up servers, workstations, and laptops. Using Box-to-Box Backup, customers can set up a second CDP appliance at a remote location to back up the data stored on the local CDP appliance. The offsite CDP appliance can also be configured to backup multiple local CDP appliances.
