BakBone Releases New Updates for Oracle Database and Microsoft SQL Server Data Protection

    BakBone's Application Plugin Modules for NetVault(R): Backup Speed Up
Data Restores and Reduce Risk of Deployment

    SAN DIEGO, June 27 /CNW/ - BakBone Software(R) (Pink Sheets:  BKBO), a
global provider of heterogeneous integrated data protection solutions, today
announced version 5.0 of BakBone NetVault: Backup Application Plugin
Module(TM) (APM) for Oracle and version 5.0 of BakBone NetVault: Backup
Application Plugin Module (APM) for SQL Server. BakBone's NetVault: Backup
APMs significantly speed up data restores, reduce the risk of deployment,
provide automatic integration with a wide range of backup devices and do not
require end-users to learn the internals of Oracle or SQL Server databases. In
addition, end-users have the benefit of multiple recovery scenarios including
disaster recovery, isolated media failure and data corruption, from a single
data protection strategy. NetVault: Backup APM for Oracle and NetVault: Backup
APM for SQL Server seamlessly integrate with BakBone's award-winning data
protection software, NetVault: Backup, for central management of
multi-platform data protection environments.

    "With Oracle Database continuing to be the world's leading relational
database management system and Microsoft SQL Server being the world's fastest
growing relational database management system, it's imperative that we provide
flexible and reliable data protection solutions to Oracle and SQL Server
customers," said Jeff Drescher, director of product management at BakBone.
"BakBone's commitment to and experience in supporting Oracle and SQL Server
platforms gives end-users looking to protect these environments the assurance
that they have a proven, integrated data protection solution."

    NetVault: Backup APM for Oracle features both methods of Oracle database
backup--user managed and RMAN based backups--to restore complete databases,
individual tablespaces or individual data files faster and more reliably.
User-managed backups provide greater simplicity for backups while RMAN based
backups provide automatic backup and restore through a point-and-click GUI,
without requiring users to learn Oracle database internals. NetVault: Backup
APM for Oracle also features: full, differential and cumulative incremental
backups; parameter, control file and archived redo log file backups;
protection down to the data file level; point-in-time recovery; job
scheduling; parallel backup support; and disaster recovery.

    NetVault: Backup APM for SQL Server offers reliable and flexible data
protection through online VDI and VSS backup methods. A point-and-click GUI
eliminates scripting, and provides recovery of complete, partial databases or
individual data files to help minimize downtime. NetVault: Backup APM for SQL
Server also features: full and differential database and file backups; partial
and differential partial database backups; incremental transaction and tail
log backups; point-in-time restores; backup and restore checksums; protection
down to the data file; job scheduling; and data restore to an alternate
instance or standby server.

    "Organizations looking to decrease the total cost of ownership of
enterprise data protection should strongly consider an integrated approach,"
said Mike Karp, senior analyst at Enterprise Management Associates. "BakBone's
NetVault: Backup Application Plugin Modules extend the reach of data
protection to critical applications under the umbrella of one integrated data
protection solution. This approach to central administration for all backup
and restore operations can help customers cut recovery time and maximize the
value of their data protection solution."
