LiveVault from Network Integrity backs up Windows NT servers on the fly and stores the data for disaster recovery in mirrored storage off site.
The product, which began shipping last week, provides continual backup for operations that face a shrinking or nonexistent backup window, such as Web sites. The real-time nature of the backup also enables companies to get access to more recent views of their data than the batch back-up method. In the event of a disaster, such as a fire or hardware failure, the storage administrator can recover a snapshot of the database as it existed only moments before the disaster. The back-ups, which are first sent to disk, then transferred onto slower tape arrays, can be located off site to provide more disaster protection. LiveVault is priced at $3,000 (#1,840) for the LiveVault storage server plus $2,000 (#1,230) per back-up server.www.netint.com.
