Atempo Announces Support for NetApp® Compliance Solutions
Palo Alto, Calif. - December 14, 2004
-- Atempo, Inc., a leader in information lifecycle management
(ILM) strategies for data protection, today announced that its Time
Navigator™ data protection software has been certified for
NetApp SnapLock Compliance and SnapLock Enterprise products from
Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP).
NetApp SnapLock, a component of the NetApp
total enterprise compliance solution, enables companies to comply
with regulatory and best-practices records-retention requirements
by allowing the creation of nonrewritable, nonerasable
write-once-read-many (WORM) volumes on NetApp NearStore® and
FAS storage systems. This prevents critical files from being
altered or deleted until a specified retention date. Because
compliance data is written to disk-based nearline and primary
NetApp storage, data can be accessed immediately to help meet
regulatory or legal discovery requirements.
Atempo's Time Navigator data protection
software delivers fast restores for heterogeneous enterprise
environments. Its comprehensive set of features address today's
complex enterprise challenges including disaster recovery,
compliance, security and rapid data growth.
"Support of SnapLock enables Atempo's Time
Navigator to meet the stringent compliance needs of the market,"
said Patrick Rogers, vice president, Marketing and Alliances at
Network Appliance. "Time Navigator's certification with SnapLock
enables unified management of data and easy retrieval of compliance
data across heterogeneous storage hardware. Administrators can now
seamlessly navigate backward through time to recover compliant data
from any point in time instantaneously."
"By supporting NetApp SnapLock, Atempo is
strengthening its integral role in information lifecycle management
solutions," said John Meaney, VP/GM, North America, Asia and
Alliances, "In today's environment, effective data protection
software needs to be able to manage data throughout its lifecycle
as it is moved across storage devices. WORM solutions like NetApp
SnapLock are growing in importance as companies meet regulatory
compliance demands for extended data retention periods."
