NEW YORK, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Blackbird Group today announced the
release of DeTroubler 3, a rapid online backup and recovery solution for
both Novell eDirectory and Microsoft Active Directory. DeTroubler minimizes
the productivity and revenue losses that result from a corrupted or failed
directory service by bringing it back online in a matter of minutes.
DeTroubler streamlines the backup and recovery process for directory
services, saving organizations hours, even days in the recovery process. It
eliminates the need for IT groups to perform time-consuming, manual tasks
like recreating links between objects or re-entering encrypted information.
DeTroubler offers granular recovery options, whereby specific users and
their attributes can be quickly restored. As a result, recovery is a more
transparent process with minimal impact to the end users.
As the industry's first integrated disaster recovery solution for both
Novell and Microsoft's directory services, DeTroubler enables IT
organizations to more easily and effectively manage their mixed directory
"Enterprise organizations are choosing to leverage the strengths of
both eDirectory and Active Directory," said Christian Ehrenthal, CEO at
Blackbird. "And as the industry moves toward increased interoperability --
reflected most recently in the Novell and Microsoft partnership agreement
-- it's important that management tools follow suit. As an integrated
solution for both directory platforms, DeTroubler significantly reduces the
cost and complexity associated with managing disaster recovery and change
control in mixed environments."
"Novell is committed to equipping our customers with best of breed
tools to manage their eDirectory deployments," said Rick Killpack,
eDirectory Product Manager at Novell. "eDirectory is a cornerstone of
Novell's identity and security management solutions. Having a quick and
easy directory backup and recovery solution is critical for any
organization using eDirectory. Blackbird's DeTroubler makes a great
addition to eDirectory's backup solutions."
DeTroubler's key features include:
* Rapidly restores the entire directory tree
* Restores individual objects, attributes, trustees and permissions
including all links and references
* Easy-to-use graphical interface
* Restores encrypted information such as end user passwords
* Automates directory backups to a choice of either open-source or
commercial SQL Servers
