TimeSpring, Lefthand Team

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. and BOULDER, Colo. - TimeSpring® Software Corp. and LeftHand Networks have entered into a cooperative sales and technology alliance to deliver and support fully protected consolidated storage solutions that are scalable, easy to manage, relatively inexpensive and less complex than most of the solutions on the market. The key components of this solution, TimeSpring’s TimeData® continuous data protection (CDP) software and LeftHand’s SAN/iQ® Storage Area Network (SAN) platform were jointly certified interoperable.

LeftHand’s SAN/iQ platform aggregates enterprise-class x86 server platforms to form highly available, scalable storage pools that can be shared by multiple servers yet managed and protected centrally. TimeSpring’s TimeData CDP protects critical applications by capturing all data changes in real-time so in the event of data loss or data corruption, administrators can recover everything within minutes, instead of hours or days. With TimeData there are no protection gaps, no scheduling requirements, no backup related system slowdowns and no backup windows for the administrator to manage. By using SAN/iQ as the back-end storage for TimeData, customers can afford more aggressive recovery time and recovery point objectives. As more applications are protected by TimeData, SAN/iQ easily extends the storage capacity, and ensures that the recovery data is there when it’s needed, no matter what.

“LeftHand’s SAN-based storage system offers scalability and performance at a cost far less than enterprise-class solutions and TimeSpring’s CDP software delivers rapid and application-consistent recovery of data,” said Lauren Whitehouse, analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. “Combined, mid-market through enterprise organizations benefit from a truly open approach to storage management, data protection and availability.”
