Atempo Moves into U.S. Data Protection Market

While Atempo has been going gangbusters in the European data protection market, the French firm has remained largely an unknown entity in the U.S.

The company hopes to change that in the near future, starting with last week’s official opening of a North American headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif.

Atempo counts among its customers Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, France Telecom, Novartis, Renault, and Virgin.net. The firm claims more than 1,750 companies have deployed the company’s flagship Time Navigator enterprise-class protection solution.

“They have good stuff, a lot of customers, and bridge the old way of doing things with cool new features, like synthetic full backups, so that restores
are much faster,” says Steve Duplessie, founder and senior analyst at Enterprise Storage Group.

“Having a lengthy history of supporting multinational customers with all the hot-list features talked about today should find them a welcome
audience,” Duplessie continues.

Atempo CEO Thierry Flajoliet boasts that “in many instances, customers have chosen Atempo over larger competitors because we deliver extremely fast data restore, including the ability to get single-file access from any point in the backup history.”

Time Navigator “excels at rapid restore in complex environments, plus it has enabling features that support information lifecycle management and utility
computing models,” says Flajoliet.

Twelve-year-old Atempo claims a vendor-agnostic approach, supporting a broad range of hardware platforms, operating systems, and applications.

Time Navigator supports multiple topologies, including virtual library systems (VLS) and disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T). It combines high-performance backup
and recovery with disaster recovery and archiving.

Atempo says Time Navigator also meets the security requirements for protecting company data by using a single port for backups through security firewalls. The product additionally includes synthetic full backup capabilities, centralized management, and a web interface for remote management.
