HP enhances OmniBack
Hewlett-Packard has announced an upgrade, due in June, to its OpenView OmniBack II enterprise backup and restore software. From a single point of control, OmniBack II 3.0 is designed to help IT administrators manage backup-and-restore operations in a mixed Unix and Windows NT environment.
The new release adds service planning capability, which includes capacity and performance analysis as well as cost management. OmniBack II 3.0 can also be integrated with HP OpenView and MeasureWare, which enables easy data flow for use in trend analysis.
Other new capabilities include compatibility with Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS), as well as Oracle8. Support for Fibre Channel has also been added for use between tape devices and HP9000 servers.
HP OpenView OmniBack II 3.0 is scheduled to begin shipping in June, starting at $995 for OmniBack II for Windows NT and $3,900 for the HP-UX version.
