Tivoli released Tivoli Data Protection for Workgroups last week. The software is a data protection and recovery product for NT environments.
The product is aimed at small businesses and decentralised NT departments in large companies. Tivoli claims that the software provides the same level of round-the clock data security previously only available for large centralised IT departments.
Alastair Martin, Tivoli's Northern EMEA marketing manager, said: "It has the capability built in to rebuild the storage system from scratch if anything goes wrong.
"This is of real interest to businesses," he added. "Even now there are customers that do not focus enough on disaster recovery, but think that doing back-up is enough, but those that do really benefit from it when their system does go wrong. Back-up is not a problem, but rebuilding an information system when disaster has struck is more difficult."
The company has also announced Tivoli Cross-Site, which Tivoli described as an e-business management product. It extends management capabilities across the Internet to ensure availability, security and dissemination of applications and information. This means users can be alerted to any failures or security breaches at all points in the link.
The product will be rolled out at the end of this month, but pricing has not yet been confirmed.
Tivoli Data Protection for Workgroups carries a price tag of £448 per server and is shipping now.
