MILTON, Australia -- Moonwalk Inc., the Australian developer of all-inclusive data management and protection software, today unveiled a powerful new capability to replace enterprise backup and restore with a combination of policy operations to secure primary data, assure uptime, drastically reduce the backup window and eliminate the restore window.
Building on and integrating with Moonwalk 6.0s advanced data management capabilities, Moonwalks copy function manages the backup of data from desktops and servers to any centralized location. Data on any server can be copied to any other location on the network, such as a secondary on-site server for automated failover and quick local retrieval, or a tertiary off-site disk storage device. Moonwalk makes it simple and efficient to back up remote servers to a central location, recover individual files or rebuild an entire server.
Because Moonwalks system maintains a full file-format copy of the data set, instead of a proprietary format, files can be reacquired immediately without time-consuming restore procedures. In the case of a complete hardware failure, a simple rollover keeps users up and running with DNS spoofing or deploying round robin load distribution.
Instant data reacquisition provides users with a new and better restore, one that is only achievable today as disk has become the dominant means of safeguarding data, said Peter Harvey, CEO of Moonwalk. As a truly universal data management and protection suite, Moonwalk delivers great advantages in terms of time and budget since it displaces longer backup and restore operations that involve protracted downtime, complex rebuilds, and often a loss of revenue as data remains unavailable.
