Innovation adds Unix, Linux support to Reservoir

Storage software maker Innovation Data Processing Inc said it has added support for IBM Corp's AIX Unix variant as well as Sun Microsystems Inc's Solaris Unix variant to its Upstream Reservoir backup server. The company also announced it is adding support for Linux running on X86/X64 platforms, as well as on IBM's zSeries mainframes.

Up until now, Upstream Reservoir required that customers use a Microsoft Windows box as the host storage backup server. Innovation Data has long since been able to backup and restore data on a multitude of platforms, using agents on server machines. Specifically, backup agents can run on Windows NT, 2000, XP, and Server 2003 variants, Novell’s NetWare, IBM’s OS/2 and AIX, Sun’s Solaris, and Hewlett-Packard’s HP-UX and Tru64 Unixes.

The company also has plug-ins to archive and restore files for Oracle’s eponymous databases as well as IBM’s DB2 UDB and Microsoft’s SQL Server, and has created plug-ins for the three most popular enterprise groupware platforms, IBM’s Notes/Domino, Microsoft’s Exchange Server, and Novell’s GroupWise. Upstream Reservoir supports a wide variety of tape technologies – including StorageTek’s 9840, IBM’s Magstar, and the ubiquitous DLT, LTO, and AIT tape drives. The software also offers straight backup to tape as well as disk-to-disk (D2D) and staged from disk to tape (D2D2T) archiving.
