A Better Backup Solution
The MooseSentry provides a disk-based storage pool for on-line data backup, and optional tape emulation for longer-term archiving and disaster recovery. Protect your critical business data with restore points created as often as every 15 minutes. Roll back to any backup restore point with a few simple mouse clicks.
Better yet, the MooseSentry can automatically send a copy of your most critical data to a second MooseSentry appliance in an offsite location. Because SCDPM leverages Microsoft's Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS) to send only the blocks of data that have actually changed, it is very bandwidth-efficent.
The Enterprise version even comes with the Hyper-VTM role pre-installed, so that in a pinch you could restore a server as a virtual machine on the appliance itself!
Yet the MooseSentry typically costs less than a tape autoloader and the software to control it. How much is peace of mind worth to you?
Is Your Business Data At Risk?If you're still backing up your data the old way, it could be! Are you still relying on tape backup? If so, when was the last time you did a test restore to verify that your tapes were readable? What about disaster recovery? Are you regularly taking a copy of your data offsite? Or are you among the Small and Medium-Sized Businesses that don't back up their data at all?
The Small Business Administration advises small business owners to make backup copies of all tax, accounting, payroll, production records, and customer data, and store the records at a location at least 100 miles away from your primary place of business. Yet, according to a study cited in an HP-sponsored White Paper:
- Although 85% of computer users say they are very concerned about losing their important data, only one in four frequently back up their data.
- 35% said they backed up their files less than once per month.
- 9% admitted they have never backed up their files.
- More than 22% said it was on their "to-do list," but they seldom did it.
