    BakBone NetVault(R): Backup Application Plugin Module(TM) for PostgreSQL
Automates Backups and Minimizes Downtime

    SAN DIEGO, November 1 /CNW/ - BakBone Software(R) (Pink Sheets:  BKBO), the
leading provider of heterogeneous integrated data protection solutions, today
announced version 3.0 of BakBone NetVault: Backup Application Plugin Module
(APM) for PostgreSQL. The NetVault: Backup APM for PostgreSQL offers users a
centralized console to setup, configure and define backup and restore policies
with granular control for complete database clusters, individual databases or
tables. NetVault: Backup APM for PostgreSQL seamlessly integrates with
BakBone's award-winning data protection software, NetVault: Backup, for
central management of multi-platform data protection environments.

    "Open-source databases are becoming popular with corporations because of
the enterprise-class functionality they provide at a low total cost of
ownership and the ability to revise the source code. As a result, programs
like PostgreSQL need a reliable data protection solution," said Jeff Drescher,
vice president of marketing, BakBone. "BakBone is the first major vendor to
protect PostgreSQL databases with a proven, integrated data protection

    PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source relational database system that has
earned a strong industry reputation for reliability, data integrity and
accuracy. It runs on all major operating systems, including Linux, Solaris and
Windows. NetVault: Backup APM for PostgreSQL automates PostgreSQL backup
policies with a point-and-click GUI, eliminating the need for complex
scripting. Through integration with a variety of backup devices via NetVault:
Backup, users have the flexibility to store backups in a VTL and then
duplicate jobs to physical tape libraries.

    NetVault: Backup APM for PostgreSQL provides comprehensive data
protection capabilities for PostgreSQL. During the backup process, all data
remains online and users have normal access to the full database clusters,
individual databases and tables. In addition to backing up the full database
cluster, individual database or table, NetVault: Backup APM for PostgreSQL can
also back up configuration files and perform global object-only backups.
BakBone's solution supports SQL Plain-text, TAR and compressed formats, giving
users the flexibility to select a backup format without learning PostgreSQL

    NetVault: Backup APM for PostgreSQL reduces downtime by speeding up
restores and restoring only what is needed from the complete clusters to the
granular level, individual databases or tables. Restores are fast and there is
less chance for human error or a syntax error than with manual execution.
