BounceBack Server Edition, the disaster recovery solution from CMS Products, offers cost-conscious businesses a backup option for Microsoft's Foundation or Small Business Server operating system.
Data security and disaster recovery specialist CMS
Products announced its family of "Instant Server Recovery" solutions
for small to medium-size businesses running Microsoft's Foundation or Small
Business Server operating system.
The server line includes BounceBack Server software and ABS-Server
single- and two-drive redundant backup systems, and is available through the
company's Website for $285 or through U.S.
Intended as a tool to ensure business continuity for cost-conscious
businesses, CMS Products developed two ABS
Server solutions, including a single-drive desktop unit available in 1TB and 2TB
capacities and a two-drive desktop unit with support for RAID 1 mirroring
technology, available in 1TB and 2TB capacities (capacity with mirroring
implemented). The two-drive RAID 1 system offers removable hard drives,
facilitating the offsite archiving of important business data with support for
the automatic rebuilding of a new hard drive inserted into the system. Both the
single- and dual-drive units support the USB
2.0 interface as well an eSATA connection.
In the event of a server failure, or "crash," both the
single-drive and the RAID solutions support CMS
Products' patent-pending Instant Server Recovery feature, which allows users to
restart their Windows server directly from the external ABS
hardware via either the USB 2.0 or eSATA
connection. The solutions are powered by BounceBack Server Edition software,
which provides full server backup, including the operating system and
applications. BounceBack Server backup software creates a mirror image of a
server on an external eSATA/USB backup drive,
including operating system, applications and settings, allowing customers to
restart, resume and restore at any time.
The BounceBack Server version offers features including government-grade AES-256-bit
data encryption, complete SQL database and MS Exchange support, two-button
restore of the failed system hard drive, QuickRestore file and folder recovery,
automatic unattended backup, network backup, versioning and additional
Ken Burke, president of CMS Products,
said when SMBs are depending on their servers to do business, even one failure
can be disastrous to the business's bottom line.
"Because BounceBack Server Edition creates a mirror image of an entire
business server on the external ABS backup
drive, in the event of a server failure, users quickly and easily can restart
the server directly from the external ABS
backup drive," Burke said. "Utilizing these instant recovery products is just
like 'business insurance' for an SMB, avoiding downtime and invaluable data
loss and possibly saving the business from catastrophic consequences."
