Iomega announces a new data protection software
Iomega announced a new tool in the defense against data disasters: Iomega Never Down software for Windows PCs utilizing an eSATA interface.
The software works by keeping a complete, uncompressed backup copy of a Windows laptop or desktop computer’s system drive on an external eSATA hard drive. The speed and performance of the eSATA 3.0 Gbits/sec interface, up to 6 times faster than USB 2.0 (Hi-Speed USB), ensures that backup, recovery, and operation from the external drive proceeds at internal hard drive speeds.
Unlike a RAID 1 setup, where all data is copied to two drives at once (a process known as mirroring), Never Down creates backup copies manually or through Microsoft’s Scheduled Task Wizard. The advantage for Never Down users is that they can always revert back to their last intact backup copy and continue their work, whereas viruses and hacker attacks can disable both drives in a RAID 1 array simultaneously.
More details about the software can be found at Iomega.
