Hewlett-Packard backs up for disaster recovery

Integrated into a thin-server appliance, the disaster recovery software lets customers back up business data stored on PC hard drives while enabling IT departments to reduce spent on recovery time after PC data problems.

The software provides automatic data and disaster protection and disaster recovery for laptop and desktop PCs and 24-hour instant access to backups anywhere in the world, according to HP.

The software protects any PC clients running Windows 95, 98, NT 4.0+ Workstation or 2000 Pro and runs on Windows for Express Networks.

If files are damaged or deleted, users can restore using drag-and-drop from AutoBackup 'network drive' and the disaster recovery tool, HP CD writer.

The first two products in the software family are the PC25 and the PC100. The PC25 is for between 10 and 25 users. The PC25 stores up to 60Gbytes of client data. The PC100 is designed to protect up to 100 client machines and stores up to 240Gbytes of client data.

The software runs on any network supporting TCP/IP protocol; 10/100Base-T is directly supported, and other infrastructures require a bridge to support the appliance.

The HP SureStore AutoBackup PC25 and PC100 products will be available from July 1.

Pricing starts at $7000 for PC25 users and $16,000 for PC100 users.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
