Unitrends Software has unveiled storage systems to help small and mid-size businesses protect their data.
The Data Protection Units (DPU) are available in desktop or rack-mountable configurations and include data backup-and-restore software, bare metal restore, and scalability to as much as 20T bytes. Further, the new DPUs are as much as 50% faster than previous DPUs. They include the ability to perform disk-to-disk backup and can be configured as a near-line vaulting product.
The DPUs support a variety of operating systems, including Windows, Linux, NetWare, Solaris and UnixWare. They also feature a compression technology called RX9 that allows data backups and restores to be done in a fraction of the time of tape-based alternatives.
The DPUs are available in a variety of configurations, scaling from 250G bytes to more than 20T bytes. They start at US$4,500 and are available now.
