Dexchange, local supplier of high availability data storage solutions, are pleased to announce the release of Replicator, everStor's new management, replication and archival software. Replicator centralises control and management functions for replicating specific disks, directories or files from any server or workstation within an enterprise over a LAN, WAN or the Internet. The software integrates easily with existing software platforms, and provides immediate on-line data recovery - a critical component of a disaster recovery program.
"Replicator operates by taking snapshots of data at a frequency defined by the administrator, based on the type of data being archived. The administrator can choose to replicate only dynamic, critical data files - excluding system and program files - thereby freeing up valuable storage capacity and network bandwidth," stated Mike Smith, CEO at Dexchange.
"Replicator runs transparently to desktop users, and its user-friendly, web-based graphical user interface allows users to easily retrieve their data without administrator assistance. Replicator resides on a Linux or Solaris-based server or network appliance and requires no special client software. Users access their replicated or lost data from their desktops using their web-browser. Since users access replicated, lost or archived data files via a browser, there are no operating system platform conflicts, no time-consuming workstation installations, and no updates to client-installed software to worry about.
Replicator is highly scalable, and can be tiered to replicate data from departmental servers as well as workstations. Available for Linux and Solaris (Sparc and Intel) server platforms, supported clients include Windows (95/98/98ME/NT/2000), Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, Irix, OpenVMS, MacOS, Linux and Novell.
