Cloud-Connected Data Protection Platform Brings New Levels of Resilience, Performance and Manageability to the Midmarket and Enterprise Remote and Branch Offices

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- EVault, Inc., a Seagate Company (STX), today announced the release of EVault 7, a significant update to its industry-leading cloud-connected backup and recovery platform. The new release offers a more resilient architecture, with enhanced replication and additional deployment options that customers can tailor to their needs. EVault 7 delivers faster backups – up to 100 percent faster for VMware environments than EVault 6 – and is optimized for a distributed environment. As part of this release, EVault is introducing a new management interface built around the ”social business.”

“With EVault 7, our customers are seeing the future shape of data protection,” said Terry Cunningham, president and general manager, EVault. “Our backup and recovery platform is designed for a cloud-connected world – and now it’s faster, smarter and more resilient than ever. We’ve also added a management interface built on a social platform, so customers can stay on top of their data protection operations and collaborate in real-time with colleagues, peers and the EVault team.”

Resilient Architecture, Tailored Deployment

Unlike other solutions that force customers into a rigid deployment model for backup and recovery, EVault 7 now offers geographically-distributed replicas in a private cloud, a service provider cloud, the EVault cloud – or in all three. Should an IT organization want an onsite cache of their data for fast, local recoveries, they can deploy EVault Express Recovery Appliance: Virtual Edition and get LAN-speed backup and recovery. Because the virtual appliance fits within current environments, it lowers total cost of ownership by leveraging existing IT infrastructure and eliminating the need for additional capital expenses.

Smarter, Faster Performance – Optimized for a Distributed Environment

Smarter, faster and more efficient than ever, EVault 7 helps IT managers put an end to worries about backup and recovery windows. Updated support for VMware environments includes fast granular restores of files and folders from only a single backup of the virtual machine, delivering backups 100 percent faster than EVault 6. With WAN-optimized data transfer that now has faster replication, EVault 7 customers achieve efficient bandwidth usage, storage optimization and end-to-end security. Granular recovery will also be available for mailbox and message-level restores within Microsoft Exchange applications by the end of the year.

“With EVault, we know that we can deploy cloud-based backup and recovery without having to sacrifice security, speed and efficiency,” said Bill McCown, Director of Information Technology at C&J Energy Services, Inc. “EVault 7 also gives us the system and application support we need, at the level we need it. I can protect and recover my data within time windows that don’t disrupt our business.”

New Management Interface, Built Around the Social Business

The new EVault Portal radically simplifies the day-to-day management of data protection operations – in a friendly and accessible interface. This unique management interface built on a social platform allows organizations to save time:

    * Easily configure backups, troubleshoot errors and view reports.
    * Communicate in real-time across the team regarding data protection operations.
    * Search EVault’s knowledge base for known issues and information about error codes.
    * Tap into EVault’s user group hosted on Jive’s social platform.
