Atempo Plays CDP Tune
Atempo will sell Storactives LiveBackup CDP software with its Time Navigator backup application. Atempo is billing host-based LiveBackup as a way to reach mobile users who may not be connected to the server during scheduled backups. When those users reconnect, their data will be saved to the server whenever they make changes.
A couple of caveats: LiveBackup is just part of Storactives PC backup product. Its LiveServer for Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) Exchange servers, however, is not part of the reseller deal. Also, don't expect Atempo to rename its product "Point-in-Time Navigator" yet. Executives of Atempo and Storactive say they may do some common development down the road, but their partnership is strictly a reseller deal now.
Still, the combination of backup and CDP is likely to be repeated by other suppliers. Larger backup vendors are already looking to add CDP -- a technology that allows users to quickly restore data from any point in the past instead of only at fixed intervals.
Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC) is beta testing a product, code-named Panther, as part of its Veritas Windows-based Backup Exec product line (see Veritas Uncages Panther). EMC Corp. (NYSE: EMC) is working on CDP for its Legato backup software and as a complement to its Invista virtualization appliance (see EMC Unveils Invista).
