"Mountain View Data, Inc. today announced the beta release of InterMezzo(tm) 1.0 - an advanced distributed file system software solution optimized for high availability, server mirroring and backup, and content dissemination. With the launch of InterMezzo, Mountain View Data is now gearing up to provide its data management services to enterprise customers, data centers, and ISPs/ASPs throughout North America and in Asian markets."

"InterMezzo brings a fundamental technology to synchronize active file systems across multiple servers in environments with intermittent network connectivity. InterMezzo is the ideal file system solution for many data replication and synchronization applications, such as content distribution and server mirroring," said Dr. Peter Braam, CTO and EVP of Engineering at Mountain View Data. "Optimized to provide simple yet robust and scalable replication, InterMezzo is positioned to see wide acceptance for server mirroring, backup as well as for synchronizing mobile clients."

"Braam started development of InterMezzo in the fall of 1998, and since then has worked with many companies and individuals, as is common with Linux-based applications. Most recently, Tacitus Systems, based in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, contributed extensive testing and debugging to the application."
