Unitrends Software this week 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 percent 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 (AU$6,227) and are available now.
