MTI intros continuance suite
MTI Technology introduced DataSentry last month, a replication tool for disk arrays. DataSentry is designed to keep mission-critical applications running in the event of a server or array failure. DataSentry replicates data to multiple servers, which enables users to access and test data with minimal network impact.
For example, replicated data can be manipulated for local and remote mirroring in Y2K compliance and quality-assurance testing scenarios. Its "checkpoint" feature enables users to create and schedule point-in-time backup and return to previous versions of saved data, reducing the number and frequency of tape backup operations.
DataSentry runs on HP-UX, AIX, and Solaris. Windows NT compatibility is expected early next year. The software is currently shipping at $75,000 per license.
