3PAR, the leading provider of Utility Storage, unveiled today at Storage Decisions New York its latest simplification tool for Microsoft Exchange deployments, 3PAR Recovery Manager for Microsoft Exchange 2003. 3PAR Recovery Manager is integrated with Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) and works in conjunction with uniquely efficient 3PAR Virtual Copy to deliver non-disruptive data protection and affordable, rapid recovery of Microsoft Exchange databases from hundreds of recovery points.
With an easy-to-use Graphical User Interface (GUI), 3PAR Recovery Manager provides rapid recovery of Exchange Databases without the long hours of administrative time normally required with traditional tape-based recovery methods. Because it leverages 3PAR Virtual Copy technology, 3PAR Recovery Manager is scalable and efficient supporting hundreds of copies per volume without requiring upfront space reservations thus allowing customers to maintain hundreds of recovery points affordably.
3PAR Recovery Manager is Exchange-aware, discovering Exchange data structures automatically without requiring customers to integrate these technologies themselves. In addition, 3PAR Recovery Manager leverages Microsoft VSS standards to ensure the non-disruptive creation of consistent, recoverable point-in-time copies of single or multiple volumes in Windows Server environments.
3PARs Utility Storage array with its advanced volume management and Thin Provisioning features is Microsoft-certified both with standalone Windows servers as well as in Windows high-availability clusters.
Our strategic focus on storage technology for Windows-based utility computing environments has yielded scalable, high-availability solutions that reduce cost and simplify management for both storage and Windows Server administrators, said David Scott, President and CEO of 3PAR. 3PAR Recovery Manager for Exchange 2003 is a real opportunity for our enterprise and service provider customers no large Exchange shop can cost-effectively receive these benefits any other way.
