The Middle East operations of Veritas, the leading storage software vendor, today announced the availability of Veritas Bare Metal Restore 4.7, disaster recovery software designed to automate the rapid server recovery of heterogeneous enterprises, providing a data ‘always available’ value aligned with the company’s utility computing strategy. Veritas Bare Metal Restore software claims to automate and simplify the server recovery process, eliminating the need and time required to manually reinstall operating systems or configure hardware. “This new version of Bare Metal Restore provides IT departments across the Middle East with the technology to help ensure data availability and business continuity for their customers by insulating end users from a simple system failure right through to a complete site outage,” says Satish Shenoy, sales manager, Veritas Software Middle East. According to Veritas the Bare Metal Restore technology helps reduce the time it takes to restore their information environments after a system failure by automating the multiple, manual-intensive tasks required to restore a failed system. With restore features like ‘dissimilar system restore,’ which allows administrators to restore a Windows system to target hardware that is completely different than the original source hardware, more cost-effectively utilising existing IT server investment. “Organisations want to recover from planned and unplanned downtime in swift, simple steps that do not interfere with their daily operations. Software that simplifies and automates the recovery process enables enterprises to efficiently get systems back up and running and ensure business continuity,” says Dianne McAdam, senior analyst and partner, Data Mobility Group. Other features include external procedures or the ability to create custom scripts at various points within the data recovery process to help automate and simplify database and application recovery. With multi-platform support, on Linux, Unix and Windows Server 2003, Bare Metal Restore 4.7 is scheduled to be available from February 2004 with no upgrade costs to existing customers. For new licenses, Bare Metal Restore starts at US$900 per Windows client and US$1,000 per Unix client.
