Xiotech Corporation, the storage networking innovator, today announced the availability of the TimeScale Rapid Restore (RR) replication appliance, a simple, affordable solution that reduces business risk by allowing critical data to be intelligently replicated to local and remote sites for disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity (BC). TimeScale extends the automated resilience of Magnitude 3D in local and campus environments to deliver geo-resilience across remote sites - enabling rapid restore-to operations in seconds or minutes.
Small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) look for simple solutions that allow them to quickly and affordably meet compliance, information lifecycle management (ILM) and other business continuity requirements, while mitigating the risk of data loss. Traditional methodologies do not address these requirements. The result is that many SMEs would rather risk data loss than grapple with the cost and complexity of legacy solutions.
The easy-to-use TimeScale RR appliance addresses these issues by empowering IT administrators to maintain replicas of business-critical data wherever they are needed. This purpose-built appliance is easy to install and configure - with a few simple keystrokes administrators can select datasets to replicate, establish policies on how up-to-date replicas need to be, and determine how much network bandwidth to ascribe. The TimeScale RR replication appliance accelerates rapid restore-to-operations and enables BC and DR scenarios at a realistic price point.
"TimeScale continues the Xiotech tradition of industry-leading simplicity for deployment and overall data management - resulting in significantly reduced cost and complexity," said Mike Stolz, Xiotech's EVP of marketing. "Created specifically for the SME market, the TimeScale RR appliance delivers cost and management benefits by using existing network infrastructures, while Xiotech's hallmark ease of use minimises the burden on IT administrators while allowing them to establish best-practice DR and BC processes."
