FilesX Announces Continuous Data Protection On-Demand

Offers Customers Flexibility to Set Specific Application Recovery Point Objectives

SOUTHBOROUGH, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 24, 2005 -- FilesX, a leading provider of disk-based backup and recovery solutions, is announcing Continuous Data Protection (CDP) On-Demand. The company will be showcasing its solution in Booth PP33 during the SNW Fall 2005 Conference in Orlando from October 24-27.

"Customers know they need to better protect their critical business data but they don't need to backup every application every second. Customers have requested a flexible solution which enables them to define backups per application to meet changing Recovery Point Objectives for specific business requirements," said Frank Jablonski, FilesX director of marketing. "FilesX CDP On-Demand allows end users to define requirements for backup based on business needs, which saves time, money and lessens pressure on the infrastructure."

The FilesX Xpress Restor solution uses CDP on Demand as the backup engine providing complete integration with key Microsoft applications like Exchange and SQL. This integration is required for any solution to provide consistency in the backup of databases thus ensuring rapid recovery in the event of a disaster. Its benefits include incremental forever backup and the ability to recover an entire volume, individual files, application data like Exchange emails and SQL Tables and bare metal restore, all from a single backup. Applications can be restarted immediately based on a backup in the FilesX repository eliminating downtime for end-users -- an industry first.

Connor Brosnahan, network manager for South Nassau Communities Hospital on Long Island, was looking for a flexible, scaleable and cost-efficient solution that would provide storage and fast data recovery for various servers that manage the hospital's email, Surgical Oncology Department and financial system, among others.

"It's vital that that Oncology department's data is protected and recoverable so I can set the snapshots at 1/2 hour intervals. For the systems that aren't as critical, email, for example, I can back up every hour. The CDP On-Demand feature lets me weigh what each server is used for and then determine the frequency of my backups."

According to Steve Duplessie, Founder and Senior Analyst with ESG, "Software like FilesX' CDP On Demand brings a new and important level of flexibility and granularity to the data management landscape with compelling ROI and affordability."
