Maxtor NAS FILE Server Supported by Newest Version of VERITAS Backup Exec

Maxtor(R)
Corporation today announced that Maxtor’s
MaxAttach(TM) NAS 4100 network attached storage (NAS) file
server, incorporating Microsoft(R) Windows(R) 2000 Server
Appliance Kit 1.7, is fully supported by the new version 8.6
of VERITAS Backup Exec(TM) for Microsoft Windows NT and
Windows 2000, announced last week.

According to the company, the VERITAS Software-Maxtor
solution offers customers a fast and reliable, disk-to-disk
method for backing up business-critical information at a cost
comparable to traditional disk-to-tape methods.
“VERITAS Backup Exec 8.6 support of Maxtor’s NAS 4100 file
server enables us to demonstrate the great value and cost
effectiveness of MaxAttach solutions as part of an overall
backup strategy,” said Eric Kelly, president of Maxtor’s
Network Systems Group. “The combined VERITAS-Maxtor solution
will benefit both small businesses and large corporations
that, in the past, have not had a cost-effective alternative
to tape-based backup.”

Storing up to 320GB of data, the Windows Powered MaxAttach NAS
4100 file server provides the interoperability and
manageability benefits of most general-purpose servers for as
low as one-third the cost per gigabyte. VERITAS Backup Exec
8.6 further strengthens the MaxAttach NAS 4100’s high capacity
with a software compression feature that optimizes performance
and disk utilization.
