"This document is a review of the Arkeia backup software
combined with the Ecrix rakpak dual 66G drive, discussion of the
features, security, usage, documentation, and support."
"Knox Software, Inc. of Burlingame California has an excellent
client/server backup product called Arkeia. Is was released in two
versions, the professional version, and the free. Both can be
downloaded from Arkeia's website:
http://www.arkeia.com/download.html. It was designed to serve as a
backup solution for administrators who have to manage large-scale
networks that consist of many platforms. It can backup any Linux or
Windows based server or client onto a single centralized server.
This enables an administrator to more efficiently manage/schedule
backups, data archival, and system recovery...."
"Combined with a Guardian Digital Linux Lockbox 2200 , and a VXA
rakPak, Arkeia works at amazing speeds. Knox Software claims that
Arkeia delivers speeds that are up to 200-300% faster than rival
software. I can not confirm this. However, it did push the network
to its fullest potential."
