- All-In-One Backup And Recovery Appliance Makes It Fast, and Economical for Companies To Deploy A Complete Data Protection Solution -

London, UK: 23 June, 2009: - i365, Inc., A Seagate® Company has today announced the launch of EVault® Plug-n-Protect technology, an all-in-one backup and recovery appliance designed for fast, economical, system and data protection.
The EVault Plug-n-Protect appliance consists of pre-configured hardware and storage, and a complete suite of software including EVault Software, EVault System Restore and EVault Real Time Protection. The EVault Plug-n-Protect appliance is an additional deployment option to complement the existing i365 software, SaaS, and outsourced managed service offerings that are trusted by over 22,000 customers worldwide.

The EVault Plug-n-Protect appliance brings enterprise-class backup and recovery technology to small and mid-size businesses in an easy to implement appliance, while also offering across the board standardisation for remote and branch offices within large enterprises. This equates to a significant time and cost savings around installation and vendor sourcing. Customers benefit from a single point of contact for their software, hardware and storage support. Additionally, as data grows and infrastructures become more complex, customers can easily and economically add backup storage capacity.

"Companies often lack the skills, time and/or resources to configure and implement their own data protection solutions," said Dave Russell, vice president of Gartner Research. "Sourcing and implementing pre-configured software and hardware backup and recovery solutions enable IT to focus on more business critical activities."
Gurdip Sohal, Sales Director, of Covenco Recovery Services, UK specialists in Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity comments, "The EVault® Plug-n-Protect offering helps customers to quickly and effectively back-up and recover data through a single application - saving valuable time and effort. The efficiency of the solutions brings enterprise-class backup and recovery to small and mid-sized businesses and will generate significant cost and efficiency savings. The EVault® Plug-n-Protect solution is a key strategic addition to our portfolio of data recovery services."

The EVault Plug-n-Protect appliance is powered by EVault data protection technology, which includes an arsenal of end-to-end performance optimisation features.
