EVault Introduces EVault InfoStage Software

by Wayne Kawamoto

EVault announced EVault InfoStage, online backup and recovery software designed to combine disk-based arrays with EVault's data transport technologies and reduce management complexity and costs.

EVault Inc., a provider of disk-based data protection and recovery services, introduced EVault InfoStage, an online backup and recovery software suite designed to combine disk-based arrays with EVault's own data transport technologies and reduce the management complexity and costs of traditional backup systems.

EVault InfoStage aims to eliminate risks, such as media corruption and human error, by enabling midtier organizations to automatically and instantly transmit periodic backups safely offsite to disk storage. EVault InfoStage is designed to minimize the time required to restore by providing instant online access to backed-up data.

EVault DeltaPro is a patent-pending, delta-processing algorithm that recognizes new files and modified portions of existing files altered since a previous scan. A change file is then instantly created, and data is compressed to as much as 2 percent of its original size. This compression, coupled with only transmitting those modified files, enables EVault InfoStage to operate in short backup window environments and quickly migrate data to a secure vault.

EVault InfoStage ensures that data is encrypted at every stage of the backup and recovery process. EVault offers a broad choice of four encryption algorithms including AES, 112-bit triple DES, 128-bit Blowfish and 256-bit DES.

All transferred files are assembled in a System Independent Data Format (SIDF). Accordingly, SIDF files backed up from a server running one supported operating system can be restored to a server or device running a second supported operating system.

EVault solutions presently support Solaris, as well as Novell NetWare, Red Hat Linux, IBM AIX, and HP-UX.
