FilesX Protects and Recovers Critical Data for the Healthcare Community

Patient Service and Compliance Are Primary Concerns in Backup Scenarios

SOUTHBOROUGH, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 20, 2005 -- FilesX, a leading provider of next-generation data protection and recovery solutions, has achieved a significant track record in helping hospitals and medical centers with the challenges of maintaining continuous data protection across their networks, including quick and effective recovery without disruption to patient care or business administration.

According to Frank Jablonski, FilesX director of marketing, the healthcare community has some particular challenges when it comes to protecting its mission-critical applications. "We often hear that healthcare IT organizations struggle with the backup and recovery processes for client and patient information, mainly due to lack of resources and reliable backups. We have leveraged our significant expertise within the healthcare community to tailor our Data Backup and Recovery solution to meet the complex challenges they face every day," Jablonski said.

Connor Brosnahan, network manager at The South Nassau Communities Hospital on Long Island, needed a system that would enable him to quickly restore email as well as many different kinds of data across his network, including vital information from the Radiation Oncology Center, the Bariatrics department as well as other key areas. "When you look at data loss and recovery from a hands-on point of view, you need a system that saves both time and labor for both the staff that depends on the data and the technical team that restores the data. The FilesX solution does that."

FilesX Xpress Restore® provides administrators and End-Users with a reliable, easy to use, continuous data protection solution. With growing requirements to meet business objectives, project deadlines and increased productivity, Xpress Restore backs up more data in less time, with fewer resources, and provides the fastest recovery possible. For example, Xpress Restore provides SQL Server data recovery at the volume, database, file and table levels, which significantly minimizes downtimes by providing the most efficient restoration methodology for the particular problem. For an Exchange Server environment, the Xpress Restore application can instantly recover Exchange emails, folders and mailboxes without having to restore the entire Exchange database. As a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, the FilesX Xpress Restore solution provides 24x7 data protection for any Microsoft application and file server.

The Austin Diagnostic Clinic in Texas maintains seven sites in the community serving hundreds of doctors and thousands of patients. "We're very enthusiastic about the FilesX solution," said Ned Euwer, systems and network engineer. "With many thousands of patient records and other critical business information, we can't afford to have a disaster. But if we do, the Xpress Restore product has proven itself for continuous backup and excellent granular recovery without disruption of patient care or our business processes."

Berkshire Medical Center in Massachusetts needed bare-metal restore capabilities according to Tom Butler, network administrator. "We experienced a lot of tape failures during backup with our previous system," Butler said. "The FilesX disk-based backup system solves that problem and provides us with the ability to continuously protect our data. With the XChange Restore module we're able to recover individual messages from more than 2,500 mailboxes."

FilesX is currently offering a special program to hospitals and medical centers to help them upgrade their existing systems to a modern disk-based 24/7 continuous data protection system for mission-critical applications. FilesX Data Backup and Recovery software is available directly from FilesX or through its Channel partners.
