Storix wins LinuxWorld Product Excellence Award

Michael E. Michalik writes "Storix, Inc wins the LinuxWorld Product Excellence Award for its System Backup Administrator Version 5.1.

SAN DIEGO, CA â August 6, 2004 â Storix, Inc. announced today that Storix System Backup Administrator has been honored as the Best Data Backup and Storage Product for the LinuxWorld Product Excellence Award at the LinuxWorld Conference and Exposition in San Francisco.

Storix SBA provides a centralized, graphical user interface for management and automation of complete multi-level backups of a single workstation or all systems on the network. This intuitive interface provides all the standard features you would expect, while also providing advanced features like backup scheduling, tape labels, tape striping, overwrite and retention policies, performance statistics, history reporting, and support for disk/SAN, and both random tape libraries and sequential autoloaders.

The recently released SBA Version 5.1 has brought the award winning software to an even higher level. âWe did an extensive study of the needs of our business customers and have tailored SBA to meet those needsâ, explained Rich Turner, Director of Product Development. âBecause the cost of disk storage has lowered dramatically, it made good business sense to provide our customers with the ability to send full-system backups to a bootable spare hard disk or SAN storage. The user can reinstall the entire system, perform selective restores as well as clone or migrate systems to new hardware, with or with tape drives.

Storix SBA excels in its unique abilities to accomplish remote or local, âbare-metalâ restorations, supporting LVM, software RAID and various filesystem types, in addition to system cloning and system migration onto any hardware configuration. âFor our business customers, this brings substantially greater efficienciesâ, added Michael Michalik, Director of Sales and Marketing at Storix. âThe net result is remarkably lower system downtime and an impressive reduction of downtime associated costs.â

Storix, Inc., founded in 1998, developed a system backup and disaster recovery solution for AIX, and expanded its product to support Linux in July of 2002. Storix is firmly committed to providing its customer base products with the most flexible and complete full-system backup and recovery solution.
