InMage Announces vContinuum 3.0 at Gartner Data Center Conference 2011

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Dec 5, 2011) - Gartner Data Center Conference 2011 -- InMage Systems (, the leading independent software vendor of disk-based, business application recovery solutions and cloud computing solutions, today announced vContinuum 3.0 at the Gartner Data Center Conference 2011 ( vContinuum 3.0, the latest version of InMage's backup and replication software for VMware ESX/vSphere environments, offers new features and enhancements that make it easier than ever to protect virtual machines. vContinuum is tightly integrated with VMware vCenter to discover, protect and recover at the vCenter level. This significantly shortens deployment times, simplifies management and enhances security.

vContinuum 3.0 is the most efficient VMware backup and replication solution on the market. Initial backup/replication over the WAN is now up to 80% faster with a new intelligent file system-aware feature that only targets used portions of the VM disk to create an initial copy of data. This provides compelling benefits over other VMware solutions that do not have file system intelligence and thereby increase the amount of data that needs to be backed up and replicated. vContinuum 3.0 is able to significantly reduce time, capacity and bandwidth requirements when the first copy is made. Additionally, vContinuum 3.0 still utilizes continuous data protection (CDP) technology to completely eliminate backup windows, administrative headaches and other inefficiencies associated with traditional backups. vContinuum also reduces recovery time objectives (RTO) with improved parallelized recovery that enables users to customize VM configurations, network settings and resource allocation in advance. This results in significant RTO gains for large VMware environments.

Another new 3.0 enhancement is failover orchestration for multi-tier applications. vContinuum's multi-tier sequencing policies can reliably recover applications spanning multiple servers in the shortest possible time. Recovery can be synchronized to the same time or application-consistent bookmark. vContinuum also offers extended support for granular restores. Individual mail objects can now be restored back to Exchange servers, and vContinuum supports both Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010.

A key benefit of vContinuum 3.0 is that it can be used to conduct non-disruptive, site-level disaster recovery testing. Although a vital task for today's organizations, many do not conduct DR testing frequently or thoroughly due to impacts on production. vContinuum can perform isolated DR tests with zero impact to production, and without even pausing backup or replication. vContinuum is also easy to manage with a wizard-based graphical user interface (GUI) that automates VM discovery, creation of protection policies, operational recovery scenarios and push-button failover and failback operations. vContinuum can also accommodate any underlying hardware, storage architecture (DAS, SAN, NAS) and storage technology (SCSI, iSCSI, FC).

InMage will be exhibiting in Booth #50 at the Gartner Data Center Conference in Las Vegas from December 5th-8th. For more information on InMage System's award winning products, please visit
