Paessler Introduces Arctor Disk-To-Disk Backup Solution

Fuerth, Germany – July 16, 2003 – Paessler today announced the immediate availability of Arctor, an easy-to-use, fast and reliable disk-to-disk backup solution. Arctor enables workgroups as well as small- and medium-sized enterprises  to automatically backup valuable data with little administrative effort. Arctor provides a dependable way to protect data and ensure recovery at a reasonable price.

"A company’s data is the one thing cannot be replaced. Lost data means lost dollars, something no company can afford in today’s economy," said Dirk Paessler, CEO of Paessler GmbH. "Smaller businesses need easy-to-use, affordable backup solutions and there is no more versatile and cheaper storage medium per gigabyte than disk-to-disk backup."

CDs or magnetic tapes require the user to search for the right backup media whenever a restore is necessary making the process lengthy and difficult. Other solutions may require an expensive dedicated server or limit the type or number of versions of a file which can be archived.

Arctor is installed on a standard PC in a Local Area Network, preferably equipped with a large hard drive. After a simple setup Arctor’s smart backup technology saves daily versions of each modified file for the past week, a weekly version for the last month and monthly versions up to a year. Optionally, Arctor can be configured to keep intra-day versions, too. Since data is stored on a hard drive, recovery of archived files is very fast. Whenever data has been lost or corrupted, Arctor’s Restore Wizard guides the user through the file recovery process. The user selects the appropriate version of each file to restore. Actual file recovery is a matter of seconds. Additionally, the user can define the lifetime of archived file versions and activate file compression.

The fully functional trial version of Arctor can be downloaded free of charge at: Arctor is available starting at (USD $29.95) for a Standard edition, Professional edition (USD $49.95), Enterprise edition (USD$149.95) and Enterprise edition site licence (USD$395).
