Arkeia Expands Support to Include Mac OS X Tiger

Jeffrey Swartz writes "CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 13, 2005--Arkeia Corp. today announced that its Arkeia Network Backup solution now supports the recently released Mac OS X Tiger operating system. Arkeia also is offering hot backup plug-ins to safeguard MySQL and LDAP data applications operating in Macintosh environments.

Arkeia's Mac OS X client performs backup of all files, including documents and applications, as well as important system files such as the Netinfo database. In addition, users can preserve privileged information and special file system features like Mac OS resource forks and Finder attributes. The Arkeia backup solution is also compatible with previous Mac OS X versions and Mac OS X Server operating systems.

The new Arkeia Mac OS X plug-in for LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) databases is tailored for the OpenLDAP-based directory server included in Mac OS X Server. LDAP servers centralize network user information, manage server access levels and offer an online directory including contact details such as e-mail address, direct phone line, photo, etc.

Additionally, Arkeia provides protection for MySQL operating on Mac OS X computers, for both offline and online databases. Arkeia developed this plug-in to enable users to protect information on MySQL's open source database which is pre-installed on Xserve machines.

"Apple Xserve stands head and shoulders above the crowd of rack-mountable server offerings, both in terms of power and cost," said Phil Roussel, Arkeia CEO. "Arkeia will continue to protect Mac servers in heterogeneous environments with our powerful network backup solution, as well as hot backup plug-ins for applications such as MySQL and LDAP."

The Mac OS X client and other hot backup plug-ins are available for download as 30-day trial versions. Get more information at http://www.arkeia.com/strategic/apple/.
