GOAL: Provide Real-Time or Scheduled back-up process to minimize down-time from lost or damaged files. Businesses simply cannot afford data loss. Instantaneous and reliable access to data is one of the key competitive advantages for corporations operating in today’s economy. As a result, grading the performance and capabilities of backup solutions is no longer simply a matter of reviewing the ability for copying data and restoring upon a disaster. Instead, administrators are increasingly interested in solutions that address all aspects of data availability and ensuring that business information is available whenever and wherever it is needed immediately. Business Challenges

Traditional solutions such as tape backup do not meet the needs of businesses today. Traditional backup technology has revolved around manual software applications that copy critical files to another storage medium, such as tape or other magnet media, for later data retrieval. While that methodology offers some protection, the very nature of a scheduled or manual backup means that data can become stale quickly. Most sites perform backups on a daily basis, which means in the case of a drive failure, as much as a complete day of work could be lost. Multiply that by hundreds of users, and the cost for that day’s labor added to down time can quickly grow to astronomical proportions.

Another problem with traditional backup software packages is that data stores can become corrupt simply due to the excessive amount of time a backup can take. In many instances, portions of data files, such as indexes or message stores, can change during an active backup, which then can lead to data corruption during a restore.

Peer Solution's Benefits
With hard disk costs falling, administrators realize that disk-based storage can accomplish the same backup tasks in just a fraction of the time needed for tape, while being cost competitive with tape systems. Not only does this reduce backup time, but those same backup disks can also speed recovery times. With these issues in mind, PeerSync Server was created to provide the foundation for your disk based high data availability requirements. Below are just a few of the core features:
  • One to One OR Many to One Server backup
  • Central Configuration Administration
  • Centralized Monitoring for Backup Status
  • Real-Time and Scheduled Processing
  • Open-File/Database Replication
  • Byte-Level Replication
  • Multi-Threading
  • UNC Path, TCP/IP and FTP Support
  • Configures and runs in minutes instead of hours

PeerLink (Peer File Collaboration Enterprise) enables business file sharing and file collaboration for users around the world.


DFS File Locking

Though DFS R2 is a more reliable and "network friendly" replication tool in comparison to its FRS predecessor, it is still incomplete and inadequate for today's more collaborative environments where data needs to be shared in real-time, among the branch offices and project teams operating in multiple locations.


File Collaboration , real-time file sync, file locking

The surest and simplest way of eliminating version conflicts with any file mirroring solution is to add a true file locking solution - one that offers, at a minimum, real-time detection of file use and immediate remote locking. As companies expand and open new office locations, the requirement for efficient inter-office collaboration becomes increasingly important to ensure that geographic distance does not become an inhibitor of growth.


Database Backup and Replication

Overview From small businesses to large corporations, replication of databases, email systems, and other locked content has become a critical component of disaster recovery and high availability implementations. There are several database packages on the market and Peer Software has developed application-specific tools as well as generic backup tools for your database protection needs.Business Challenges.
