NetApp certifies Atempo with SnapLock
Network Appliance Inc. has certified Atempo's Time Navigator data protection software for its SnapLock Compliance and SnapLock Enterprise products. NetApp SnapLock enables companies to comply with regulatory requirements by allowing the creation of nonrewritable, nonerasable write-once-read-many volumes on NetApp NearStore and FAS storage systems. This prevents critical files from being altered or deleted until a specified retention date. Atempo's Time Navigator software delivers fast restores for heterogeneous enterprise environments, addressing challenges that include disaster recovery, compliance, security and rapid data growth.
