Zetta Systems, EVault integrate
Continuous Data Protection (CDP) provider, Zetta Systems announced that EVault, Inc., an online backup and recovery service provider, has implemented the ZettaServer IR storage appliance to provide an additional layer of data availability for EVault customers.
By incorporating ZettaServer's writable point-in-time copy technology (zSnap) in EVault's data centers, users of the EVault Protect online backup service achieve increased data and application availability through near-continuous zSnaps, the companies claim. If an outage or data corruption occurs, administrators can roll back to the most recent zSnap prior to the problem, and then restore data from the ZettaServer appliance without having to engage the array.
