Microlite Corporation has announced that its award winning BackupEDGE can now power Internet bandwidth to perform secure backups, LIVE, to the Amazon Web Services (News - Alert) Simple Storage Service (S3) storage cloud.
The new software is priced reasonably starting from $100.00 for personal, $300.00 for non-profit, and $400.00 for commercial licenses and it is made available through resellers and value-added distributors worldwide.
According to the company BackupEDGE is a software that provides backup and bare metal disaster recovery capabilities across a wide variety of Linux distributions, including Red Hat (News - Alert) Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Novel OpenSUSE, ubuntu, Debian and uses a scalable, decentralized, fault tolerant server structure promising a 99.9 percent data availability.
It also supports Amazon Web Services on-line storage that offers fast, secure and inexpensive functional programming interface to create archives just as it would with any other medium.
It provides the same "Transparent Media Technology" access to Amazon S3 that it would to an FTP Server or removable disk, including backups of servers or parts of servers with dual data integrity checking. It allows individual to access files and folders in seconds providing compatibility with RecoverEDGE bare metal disaster recovery.
Microlite also recommends that all Amazon S3 users should purchase the BackupEDGE encryption option to ensure that all data that leaves the premises is encrypted while at rest, thus conforming to customer data privacy regulations.
The company now provides BackupEDGE access to Amazon S3 storage through an Amazon payment gateway which is charged and billed directly by Amazon Payments.
The company claims that it is the first company to bring a commercial bare metal disaster recovery product to market for many of the operating systems running today, as well as SCO Unix 3.2.x. and is recognized as having the most advanced disaster recovery product available for each of those platforms.Jyothi Shanbhag is a contributing editor for TMCnet.
