CYA HOTBackup Significantly Reduces Planned Downtime & Ensures Data Integrity for EMC Documentum 6.x Customers

Enables Hot, Consistent System Backups to EMC NetWorker

SHELTON, CT--(Marketwire - October 19, 2010) - CYA Technologies, an enChoice® company, today announced CYA HOTBackup™ for EMC® Documentum®. This new, application-aware solution helps Documentum customers to significantly reduce planned system downtime and ensure data integrity by enabling hot, consistent backups to EMC NetWorker.

For companies operating in multiple time zones and running customer-facing portals such as customer service applications, there is no good time to take Documentum offline for a system backup. Studies conducted by IT industry analysts show that on average, businesses lose between $84,000 and $108,000 for every hour of IT system downtime.* For a company that needs to bring Documentum down for daily backups and maintenance, that translates into tens of millions of dollars lost per year. CYA HOTBackup enables companies to mitigate and even eliminate planned Documentum downtime by performing hot backups of the entire Documentum application that are automatically stored within EMC NetWorker.CYA HOTBackup also prevents data loss and corruption issues that are commonly caused by other hot backup solutions. Most other hot backup solutions perform content and metadata backups at different times, resulting in backups where the content (i.e. a loan application) will not be linked to its most recent metadata (i.e. digital signatures). CYA HOTBackup eliminates this issue by backing up all Documentum components in a consistent manner. These components include:

  • The full-text index;
  • Database; and
  • Storage area.

CYA HOTBackup is designed to integrate seamlessly with CYA's flagship product, CYA SmartRecovery™. CYA SmartRecovery mitigates unplanned Documentum downtime by enabling hot, granular recovery of Documentum objects in response to logical failures such as viruses, power surges, and user/programmatic errors.

"We developed CYA HOTBackup in response to requests from multiple Documentum customers that wanted the hot, consistent backup capabilities of CYA SmartRecovery for the entire system because either their backup solution required Documentum to be taken offline, or they were using a hot backup solution that couldn't ensure data integrity," said Mike Fernandes, director of product management and services for CYA Technologies. "When used together, CYA HOTBackup and CYA SmartRecovery enable Documentum customers to achieve complete recovery from both full system and logical failures without jeopardizing day-to-day operations or negatively affecting the bottom line."

CYA HOTBackup supports Documentum versions 6.x.To learn more, visit or CYA will be exhibiting at Momentum Europe 2010, October 25 through 28 in Lisbon, Portugal.
