i365 Launches Virtualized EVault for Microsoft DPM Offering
March 22, 2011 Alex Woodie
i365 yesterday unveiled a virtualized version of its EVault for Microsoft‘s Data Protection Manager (DPM). The new offering builds on last year’s launch of the appliance-based EVault for DPM solution and gives customers the freedom to run the EVault for DPM software on any X64-based server equipped with a hypervisor.
i365 launched its EVault for Microsoft DPM solution about a year ago to give DPM customers a way to extend the disaster recovery (DR) benefits of the DPM solution to other platforms and applications, including IBM i, Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, NetWare, VMware, the Oracle‘s database, and Microsoft’s SharePoint, Exchange, SQL Server, and Cluster Services software. The offering was delivered as an all-in-one backup and recovery appliance that combined Microsoft’s DPM 2010 software and i365’s backup agents on a preconfigured X64 server made by Dell.
With the newVirtualized Edition of EVault for Microsoft Data Protection Manager, customers can run the software on any server they want. The solution requires Microsoft’s Hyper-V or VMware’s hypervisor.
i365, which is a subsidiary of Seagate, made its announcement at the Microsoft Management Summit 2011 conference being held this week in Las Vegas.
