  • 29 October, 2003 08:35

<p>Affordable, real-time disaster recovery solution includes support for Windows Small Business Server, allows small to medium-size businesses to easily back up without system interruption and perform rapid file recovery or complete bare metal restore</p>
<p>SYDNEY, Australia – Oct 28, 2003 – PowerQuest® Corporation, a global provider of deployment and recovery solutions, announces PowerQuest V2i Protector™ 2.0 Small Business Edition, the latest version of its popular disk-based backup and disaster recovery solution for Windows® servers. V2i Protector 2.0 Small Business Edition supports Windows NT, 2000, 2003 and Small Business Server and gives small to medium-size businesses an easy to use and more affordable solution to automate system and data protection. PowerQuest V2i Protector 2.0 Small Business Edition creates compressed backup images of a server’s volumes—including operating system, server settings and preferences—that can be used to restore system and data volumes, or individual files and folders, in minutes, as opposed to the hours it can take using traditional backup methods.</p>
<p>Many small businesses lack the enterprise-class machine room environments and expensive robotic tape libraries which are viewed as essential to best-in-class data protection. Others may have small IT budgets or have implemented backup solutions that may not provide sufficient protection. Because of this, small businesses are at risk of critical system outages and data loss. V2i Protector 2.0 Small Business Edition leverages PowerQuest’s Virtual Volume Imaging (V2i™) technology to provide businesses a faster and broader level of server protection that requires minimal training to implement.</p>
<p>“PowerQuest V2i Protector 2.0 Small Business Edition allows us to eliminate our backup window and improve the frequency of our server backups without hindering system operations, disrupting application usage or data access by our users,” says David Boosamra, IT administrator at Antidote Design. “Deploying V2i Protector 2.0 Small Business Edition across our company ensures we no longer have to worry about a potential system crash. It’s reassuring to know that both our data and the active state of our system operations are protected and can be recovered quickly and easily, even during working hours if needed.”</p>
<p>Backup images can be saved directly to any network storage device such as a RAID array, NAS or SAN. V2i Protector 2.0 Small Business Edition can also mount backup image files as read-only network or workstation drives that can be shared to other network users or groups for easy access and recovery of individual system and data files or folders.
V2i Protector 2.0 Small Business Edition delivers the following functionality:
• Support for Windows Small Business Server, Windows NT Server, Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2003 Server: additional platform support ensures administrators can protect a greater variety of Windows Servers.
• Simultaneous multi-volume imaging: a snapshot of multiple volumes is taken to restore multiple database volume-sets, keeping information that is spanned across multiple volumes in synch.
• Microsoft Gold Certification: strict adherence to Microsoft® coding requirements gives customers and partners confidence in meeting their disaster recovery needs.
• Active Directory Integration: administrators can add devices to the console in order to push and manage agent clients.</p>

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
