Enterprise backup from the desktop
Legato Systems is shipping Networker Remote, software designed to provide enterprise data protection and disaster recovery for Windows-based PCs and laptops. For remote users with limited network bandwidth and connectivity, Networker Remote conducts intelligent compression and sub file-level backup to help reduce network traffic. If laptops are lost or stolen, the software goes through Microsoft Explorer to conduct file and directory restore functions without the need for a network administrator. Networker Remote runs on a Windows NT server and provides data protection and disaster recovery services to Windows 95/98 and NT workstations. Pricing starts at $25,000 for one Networker Remote Server and support for 50 clients.
