New backup and recovery software ‘reduplicates’ backup data for optimal recovery times

eSilo, a provider of comprehensive online data backup, storage solutions and data management services, has announced SiloSphere, claimed to be a groundbreaking global backup and disaster recovery software technology. SiloSphere has been designed and optimized for the era of cloud computing, offering midrange users enterprise-class functionality and performance.

SiloSphere was built on the philosophy that backup is merely a means to an end with data recovery being the ultimate objective. By tailoring a solution that accounts for the needs of remote backup, archiving and recovery, SiloSphere allows businesses to take full advantage of cloud computing’s potential in a single comprehensive package. SiloSphere’s proprietary global architecture includes Reduplication data rehydration, Backive online backup and archive storage and Recover Assure data deduplication.

SiloSphere is a fault-tolerant mesh of data points (computers/agents) scattered around the enterprise and controlled by distributed Universal Storage Nodes (USN). SiloSphere’s ability to administer all data points around the world from a centralized management interface allows for the application of global retention policies, ensuring document compliance enforcement throughout the organization. SiloSphere’s centralized web management interface and global network architecture eliminates the remote office barrier while still managing one cohesive backup, archiving and recovery system with unlimited scalability.

Reduplication data rehydration
Architected with an emphasis on recovery, SiloSphere’s distributed architecture delivers unlimited scalability, high availability and efficiency through its proprietary Reduplication process, a data rehydration technology that exceeds recovery time objectives by rehydrating data on the restore target rather than the archive server, minimizing the data transferred, slashing recovery times and extending the value proposition of data deduplication. Recovery times are further reduced by utilizing SiloSphere’s incremental restore technology, ability to recover the latest data and recognizing the best data path by comparing local disk and network speeds.

Backive online backup and archive storage
SiloSphere keeps all data backed up within an online archive enabling online searching of global data sets without first performing a recovery operation. This unique capability - known as Backive - makes SiloSphere the only ROBO backup and recovery product to incorporate eDiscovery functionality, further consolidating and simplifying enterprise-wide legal holds and discovery.

Recover Assure data deduplication
Recover Assure is eSilo’s proprietary global data deduplication technology that combines multiple data compression algorithms to provide massive reductions in data stored and transferred. Recover Assure’s ability to identify a data block amongst a vast pool of data points is unparalleled and dramatically reduces information redundancy and backup window times. Recover Assure is able to identify bad blocks and prevent the retransmission of error files throughout the system leading to a full recovery of all business-critical information.

“Cloud storage continues to be among the hottest technologies in the industry today but far too many vendors continue to focus solely on the backup end of it and fail to properly address optimizing restore times, which is the most critical part of the backup and recovery equation,” said Jerry Jeffries, CEO of eSilo. “SiloSphere is able to meet the demands of today’s global businesses through our Reduplication data rehydration technology that streamlines the restore process, cutting restore times by as much as 99 percent. It is a solution that solves the cost, complexity and capacity issues many face from their primary backup vendor while taking advantage of cloud storage’s potential.”
