i365, Microsoft team up on multi-platform, cloud-connected data protection

To allow IT managers extend Microsoft System Center DPM 2010 across new platforms and into cloud

By CBR Staff Writer

i365 has announced a collaboration with Microsoft on development of a heterogeneous offering that will allow IT managers to extend Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010 across non-Microsoft platforms and into the cloud, using i365’s EVault data protection software and cloud-connected storage infrastructure.

According to the i365, the combined offering will be available in several configurations. The first configuration will include an appliance-based backup offering, powered by Seagate technology, which is scheduled for delivery in first half of 2010 with the release to manufacturing of DPM 2010.

The company said that the collaboration offers an integrated data protection environment for windows file servers and applications, Unix, Linux, Novell netware, VMware, IBM i, and Oracle. It also allows IT teams to provide data protection and disaster recovery efficiently and with less cost.

The combined offering will also give customers the ability to protect DPM and other data in the cloud. With immediate access to the i365 data protection cloud, DPM customers will benefit from a network of SAS 70 Type II certified, Tier 3 & 4 hosting facilities, WAN optimised backup and recovery, disaster recovery experts and processes, the company said.

George hoenig, vice president of product operations at i365,said:“Our EVault technology is making cloud based data protection an important part of disaster recovery initiatives for more customers every day, optimizing the efficiency, security, and flexibility of data transfer over the internet. Through unique edge appliances, compression, and block level deduplication technology, we deliver the disaster recovery benefits of an offsite backup, without the costs of tapes or transfers of physical media.”
