CMS Products, a provider of data security, backup, disaster recovery and content management technologies has released a family of Instant Server Recovery offerings for small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) running Microsoft’s Foundation or Small Business Server operating system.
The company has developed two ABS Server offerings, including a single drive desktop unit available in 1TB or 2TB capacities, and a two-drive desktop unit with support for RAID 1 mirroring technology, available in 1TB and 2 TB capacities.
The company claims that the two-drive RAID 1 system offers easily removable hard drives, which facilitates the offsite archiving of data with support for the automatic rebuilding of a new hard drive inserted into the system. Both the single and dual drive units support both the USB 2.0 interface and eSata connection.
In the event of a server failure or crash, both the single-drive and the RAID offferings support Instant Server Recovery feature, which allows users to restart their Windows server directly from the external ABS hardware via either the USB 2.0 or eSATA connection, CMS said.
According to CMS, the Instant Server Recovery offerings are powered by BounceBack Server Edition software, which provides server backup, including the operating system and applications. The BounceBack Server version offers AES-256 bit data encryption, SQL database and MS Exchange support, two-button restore of the failed system hard drive, QuickRestore file and folder recovery, automatic unattended backup, network backup and versioning.
Ken Burke, president of CMS Products, said: Because BounceBack Server Edition creates a mirror image of an entire business server on the external ABS backup drive, in the event of a server failure, users quickly and easily can restart the server directly from the external ABS backup drive.
Utilising these instant recovery products is just like ‘business insurance’ for an SMB, avoiding downtime and invaluable data loss and possibly saving the business from catastrophic consequences.
