Syncsort Releases Backup Express

Originally published February 8, 2006

Syncsort recently announced its newest release of Backup Express, the enterprise data protection product, is certified to support the NetApp NearStore Virtual Tape Library (VTL). This reaffirms Syncsort's commitment to be among the first partners supporting the latest technology from Network Appliance, and other vendor partners. Backup Express has been working with NetApp as an integral supporter of disk-to-disk backup development for over two years, including the release of Backup Express 2.2 with NetApp SnapVault management capabilities in 2004.

Backup Express has been a long-standing technology partner of NetApp, working closely on technologies such as NDMP, SnapVault, and disk-to-disk backup for open systems with Open Systems SnapVault (OSSV)—and now backup to NearStore VTL. Backup Express 2.35 certified support of NearStore VTL means that it offers customers the benefits of disk-based data protection combined with the ease-of-use of Backup Express administration and management for schedules, monitoring and tracking.

Mutual customers will realize the benefits of disk-based data protection such as improved scalability, greater reliability in case of hardware failure, faster backups and restores, and business continuity with offsite servers in case of a disaster. Backup Express data protection and recovery for NearStore VTL utilize high-performance image technology and application integration for mission critical applications such as SQL Server, Exchange and Oracle.

“This certification illustrates our ongoing commitment to ensuring that Backup Express works seamlessly with NetApp products to provide world-class enterprise storage and data protection systems and offer options that best fit mutual customer environments including SnapVault, OSSV and NearStore VTL,” said Dan Regan, Syncsort’s Senior Vice President.
