Constant Data Adds OS X Support to OnDemand ReplicatorExtends network-based replication solution to Mac OS X Server (September 27, 2004)
Constant Data, a globally-focused provider of leading data availability and disaster avoidance software solutions has expanded their product offering by adding support for the Apple Mac OS X server platform. Constant Data offers an affordable network-based replication solution that provides automatic point-in-time disk-based backups for the Apple Mac OS X operating platform.
"The introduction of OnDemand Replicator for Apple Mac OS X offers customers in school districts, prepress printing, graphics, and rich media content environments guaranteed data replication of all changing files from Apple Mac servers to other local or remote servers allowing for greater levels of data protection and increased flexibility of how and where files are stored," said Brad Wenzel, CEO of Wenzel Data. "People in Mac environments will no longer need Zip drives or sneaker nets."
OnDemand Replicator installs on existing Apple Mac OS X servers to provide automatic data replication for a customer's growing storage needs. OnDemand Replicator allows for increased levels of data availability in mixed server environments including Linux, Sun-Solaris, IBM AIX and Apple Mac OS X platforms.
OnDemand Replicator for the Apple Mac OS X server platform offers several advantages over existing data replication and disk-based backup solutions:
* Preserves resource forks and enables legacy applications and files to be seamlessly replicated to other servers
* Integrates easily in existing IT infrastructures with unique cross-platform replication technology
* Guarantees fast data delivery around the globe through unique journaling and network transport technology for resiliency over both, local and unreliable wide area networks
* Replicates both, data and metadata of files for complete recovery in case of a disaster
* Provides flexible modes of replication (1-1; 1-N; N-1; M-N; unidirectional or bidirectional)
