UK software specialists, JPY has announced the launch of the award winning PresSTORE data management system. The latest update includes a new smart browser interface feature to help guide users through the software, a PresSTORE mobile Apple iPhone App to allow users to monitor PresSTORE servers from anywhere and 'progressive backup', billed as a new concept for backing up large data sets.
PresSTORE P4’s browser based interface promises users easy access while maintaining security, securing backups in a few minutes. The smart browser interface also adds flexibility by making it possible for users to login, configure and administer their PresSTORE server from any workstation. User groups can also be granted customised access to Backup and Archive, JPY notes.
Users can back up large data sets by using incremental backups to complete the data set automatically, ending dependency on the weekend backup window - with 60 hours and about 20 TB limit with 100MB/s - as the back up data can be saved automatically whenever production allows. The data can also be restored immediately.
Running a tape library easier than before insists the company, by taking care of tape rotation and the organisation
of the tapes in the user’s library. Users can also now monitor their PresSTORE server and check planned and
running jobs on the go.
The PresSTORE mobile iPhone app displays the capacity of users storage pools and allows them to set a critical value for each storage pool that will trigger a notification, while workstations secured with Backup2Go can also be monitored separately. When such a workstation exceeds a previously defined interval without being backed up, a
notification will be sent, and via the iPhone contacts, the relevant user can easily be selected.
PresSTORE offers full Xsan support. The integration of Apple FSEvents technology, lets users handle large data sets and build highly optimised workflows, while changed files are recognised quickly and automatically.
PresSTORE P4 is available in the UK now, exclusively from JPY. A 30-day trial version is available at www.archiware.com/download.
System requirements, a range of online tutorials and more information about PresSTORE P4 can be found at www.archiware.com. Unusually, PresSTORE P4 runs on Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris and Windows based computers.
Existing customers will need to wait for version 4.1 which will be able to upgrade 3.x installation. 4.0 will only be available to new customers initially. 4.1 will be released September 2010.
