i365 Extends Backup Service

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- i365, Inc., A Seagate Company (NASDAQ:STX), today introduced the EVault Express Recovery appliance, a vault that can be stored on-premise or at a remote office/branch office as an enhancement to its EVault online backup and recovery Software as a Service (SaaS). The pre-configured storage appliance ensures business continuity by replicating local backups to an offsite EVault data center and can be easily installed as a local vault without the need to manage hardware or upgrade bandwidth.

According to Forrester Research’s report, "Market Overview: Backup Software As-A Service," published February 20, 2008, "For firms with larger storage capacities or more demanding recovery requirements, a service that supports local backups to a disk appliance followed by a vaulting of the data to the vendor data center is preferable. This provides not only faster backups but much faster restores."

“Companies of all sizes are struggling to manage exponential data growth, while trying to reduce their backup windows and recovery time objectives,” said Shail Khiyara, senior vice president of the i365 EVault Data Protection business unit of i365, A Seagate Company. “The EVault Express Recovery appliance, coupled with EVault SaaS, helps businesses address these issues by avoiding day-to-day disruptions, and enabling complete disaster recovery protection without the need to purchase additional bandwidth. By deploying the Express Recovery appliance, customers can take advantage of a tiered recovery strategy and ensure rapid return to operations with local and offsite backups and restores.”
