"At the Linux World Conference & Expo Show today, Knox Software Corp. announced that it has released a free version of its Arkeia network backup software for Linux users."

"The Southern Calif.-based developer of enterprise network backup tools has posted a free version of its Linux application, the Arkeia Free Version, for immediate download from its Web site at www.arkeia.com and through a selection of partners, such as SuSE and Mandrake. Designed to provide Linux-based PCs and small networks with enterprise-caliber backup functionality, the Arkeia Free Version provides full support for one Linux-based server to back up and restore itself and two Linux, Windows 95/98, or Windows NT Workstation client PCs over a network. The Free Version license permits both commercial and non-commercial use, making Arkeia an inexpensive means to reliably safeguard data for home users, small companies and organizations."

"We've found that personal users of Arkeia on Linux have been effective in promoting the adoption of Arkeia on a larger scale within their companies and organizations," said Phillip Roussel, CEO of Knox Software. "From personal experience, these users know that Arkeia delivers sophisticated backup functionality that takes full advantage of the power and flexibility of Linux. Offering a free version of Arkeia for both commercial and non-commercial use will encourage even more organizations to test Arkeia on Linux and discover how Linux can handle network backup chores more cost effectively than competing Microsoft-centric packages."
