Atlas Venture: LiveVault Extends Online Data Recovery Service to Linux and Unix Servers

"LiveVault Corporation... today extends its offerings to customers running Linux and Solaris servers. The LiveVault Online Backup and Recovery Service ensures that a company's critical business data is automatically backed up, electronically vaulted and protected off-site, and immediately available for guaranteed recovery 24x7x365 in the event of a disaster, virus attack, human error or other data-loss event.

"Major corporations devote significant IT resources to backing up computers in their data centers, and moving tapes off-site for disaster protection has proven an effective solution. However, for servers outside of major data centers-such as enterprise remote or branch offices, or mid-sized businesses-in-house tape backups have been an error-prone answer. Analysts estimate that nearly 50 percent of in-house, tape-based backups for these 'distributed servers' fail to fully recover, making business continuity an impossibility.

"For servers that reside outside of 'Class A' data centers, LiveVault's service eliminates the human error and costs inherent in tape-based backup and enables instant 'anytime, anywhere' data recovery so companies can always be open for business. LiveVault automatically and continuously backs up business server data via a secure Internet connection and stores it in an off-site Iron Mountain facility, where it is available for immediate recovery in the event of a system failure, virus, human error or other disaster. IT professionals who rely on LiveVault to protect their data are able to focus on the pressing issues facing their businesses, instead of spending time on tedious data backup and recovery chores..."
