EVault Express Recovery Appliance Reduces Recovery Time Objectives with Local and Offsite Backup and Recovery

Oct. 28, 2008- SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct 28, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- i365(TM), Inc., A Seagate Company (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."

Key Features and Benefits:
The EVault Express Recovery appliance features a scalable design that gives EVault SaaS customers centralized control over their data. Other features and benefits include:
-- Rapid restores eliminate a wait of up to 24 hours for a pre-loaded appliance
-- "Plug and Play" configuration provides easy deployment and management of the appliance
-- End-to-end encryption helps prevent data breaches
-- Delta processing leverages the EVault DeltaPro(TM) technology to allow for only new or changed blocks of data within files to be replicated, providing fast and efficient replication and optimized performance over the WAN
-- Replication is monitored daily from the remote office to the i365 data center

Protection When the Unexpected Hits
The EVault Express Recovery appliance provides LAN-speed backups and restores and sends data to the onsite vault, then automatically replicates it to an offsite vault at one of i365's seven secure SAS 70 Type II data centers in North America, ensuring both faster restores as well as offsite protection. In the event the appliance is unavailable, backups are seamlessly redirected to the offsite data center.
