SAN DIEGO -- BakBone Software (Pink Sheets:BKBO), the leading provider of heterogeneous integrated data protection solutions, today announced version 8.0 of NetVault®: Backup, the company’s award-winning, flagship data protection solution. The newest release of NetVault: Backup introduces integrated, Continuous Data Protection (CDP) capabilities and also expands NetVault: Backup’s feature set. This marks a critical advancement in BakBone’s Integrated Data Protection (IDP) strategy, BakBone’s approach for reducing complexity in the data center.

NetVault: TrueCDPTM, BakBone’s new CDP offering, helps customers meet aggressive recovery point objectives for their most valuable and time-sensitive data on Linux and Windows file servers. As opposed to scheduled backups, which provide only one recovery point every 24 hours, BakBone’s CDP capabilities provide recovery points within seconds. Developed as an integral feature of NetVault: Backup 8.0, NetVault: TrueCDP uses the same back-end hardware, providing a centralized repository of data that eliminates the complexity introduced by stand-alone CDP systems. Unlike many current CDP solutions that offer only near-CDP, NetVault: TrueCDP does more than just take occasional snapshots of data — it provides up-to-the-second, real-time data capture for very granular any-point-in-time (APIT) recoveries. Customers can also define fixed-point-in-time (FPIT) recoveries (snapshots) for longer-term recovery points with finer granularity than those offered by traditional scheduled backup systems.

BakBone customer Yahoo! leverages NetVault: Backup for scalable data protection. “As a leading global Internet brand and one of the most trafficked Internet destinations worldwide, it is critical that we support our business with technologies that can easily grow over time and provide the flexibility to allow us to run our storage management solutions on different platforms,” said Marcellus Tabor, manager of data protection at Yahoo!.
