BakBone Software Launches Disaster Recovery Module


BakBone Software(TM) today announced the availability of the VaultDR(TM) Application Plugin Module(TM) (APM(TM)), a new disaster recovery APM that it said provides complete bare-metal recovery capabilities for Intel(R)-based operating system platforms.

According to the company, the VaultDR APM allows users to recover from disk failures without having to manually re-install the base operating system. The VaultDR APM includes VaultOS(TM) mini-kernel and supports the most popular NIC and SCSI card drivers, along with a utility for the creation of boot floppies.

"Disaster recovery software is an important capability for any IT manager or user who manages routine backup procedures," said Mike Johnson, BakBone's Director of Product Management. "In the event of a disaster, VaultDR provides complete bare-metal recovery of your disk partition contents, including your operating system, patches and service packs. VaultDR also works in conjunction with our NetVault(TM) backup and restore software to provide data protection, scaling from the workgroup to the enterprise."

The VaultDR APM is available now for all Intel-based platforms including FreeBSD, Linux, SCO UNIX, Solaris x86, Unixware, Windows 95/98/ME, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and more. Pricing includes a one time server charge of $495 and an individual client-side license fee.
