Atempo Inc. introduced the Atempo HyperStream Server, a new module for Time Navigator with block-level data deduplication capabilities.
The HyperStream Server is a stream-oriented storage service that allows backup data to be sent to a storage server across high- and low-bandwidth connections while performing block-level dedupe across and within the streams.
By identifying identical blocks of data on multiple systems and only backing up the changed blocks, the module eliminates data redundancy and reduces the amount of storage and the network bandwidth required. HyperStream Server also supports block-level replication from one unit to another over local- or wide-area network connections. HyperStream Server is entering beta tests and Atempo said it will be generally available in August.
