KOMworx automated file replication simplifies compliance and disaster recovery
Ottawa, ON Canada – January 11, 2006
KOM Software, Inc., a global leader of storage management software solutions, today announced the addition of file replication to its KOMworx suite of Storage Management solutions. File Replication enables organizations to maintain multiple copies of files concurrently on various storage devices, providing a higher level of business continuity and optimizing disaster recovery. In addition, KOMworx file replication also helps financial, healthcare and legal organizations comply with government regulations such as SEC, HIPAA, SOX, FDA and others.
"Today's IT environments need reliable data storage mechanisms to prepare for disaster recovery and satisfy government regulations regarding data availability," said Dr. Taher Shaath, Chief Executive Officer of KOM Software. "KOMworx replication enables customers to maintain multiple copies of files on competing storage technologies; increasing availability, protecting against data loss and significantly improving recovery from a disaster or system outage," he added.
KOMworx e-WORM++ is the first solution combining the security of permanent write-once storage technologies with the performance and availability of hard disk arrays. e-WORM++ automates file replication process by significantly reducing replication time with virtually no impact on sever performance ensuring data is highly available. Files protected with e-WORM++ are stored and protected on hard disk and have an automatic replica maintained on write-once WORM storage, satisfying the most stringent compliance requirements.
The e-WORM++ solution provides two levels of automated file replication. First, it maintains multiple copies of a file on various hard disk storage resources. Secondly, KOMworx can replicate files to write-once (WORM) storage resources such as optical media. With these replication features, KOMworx can create and maintain multiple copies of files on various storage technologies simultaneously, enhancing business continuity.
Benefits of KOMworx Replication technologies include:
- Maximizing business continuity in the face of potential disaster
- Enabling compliance with regulatory requirements such as the SEC, HIPAA, SOX, FDA, Gramm-Leech-Bliley Act and NASD
- Protecting critical data and improving customer service
- Ensuring replica copies are made automatically
- Minimizing the backup window, utilizing WORM permanence
Replication is an essential requirement for organizations that are struggling to cope with various compliance regulations, disaster recovery preparations and sustaining business continuity. By using KOMworx replication software customers are able to store, archive and retain multiple copies of files and maintain business continuity.
