About the Products
BizGuardian provides robust protection without the complexity and IT intervention usually associated with traditional multi-layered data protection. It automatically scans the network to discover new desktops, notebooks or servers, and then backs them up to disk without the need for manual intervention. Backup operations are automatically adjusted to ensure all computers get protected, and AES-encrypted tapes are created for safe offsite storage. Users can perform restores of their files themselves without needing to involve IT personnel.

Breece Hill's iStoRA is a new approach to data storage. iStoRA integrates disk and tape into an easy-to-deploy, easy-to-manage, versatile and affordable package. The iStoRA provides a flexible high-performance storage repository suitable for a wide variety of data storage and server applications. iStoRA today combines 2.0 TB RAID disk, a tape autoloader and a robust Windows or Linux server in one optimized package.

Breece Hills solutions eliminate the hidden costs of administrative time required to maintain conventional backup systems such as manually swapping tapes, writing and re-writing backup scripts, or searching for lost files. This unique blend of best-in-class components provides a worry-free repository for customers data.
