greater data and system protection than ever before across multiple
Operating System platforms.
Among the enhancements announced today are increased capabilities to
Unitrends' Hot BareMetal(TM) capability, at the core of its exclusive
Continuous System Protection(SM), allowing Linux users, running
SuSe/Novell, Red Hat, Debian, Gentoo and more, to capture an image of the

ability to conduct a Windows-based BareMetal recovery to recover key data
to heterogeneous hardware, giving IT personnel greater flexibility and
lower cost options than ever before.
The additions are the first major enhancements to the company's Rapid

crash, without having to resort to cumbersome or intensive procedures,"
said Mark Phillippi, Unitrends' Vice President of Product Technology.

Linux-based servers; providing them with the means to get back in business
within minutes, instead of hours or days, means they no longer have to
endure long periods of downtime when failures occur. This is key to their
very ability to do business."

* Enhancements for Windows BareMetal recovery, significantly enhancing
the ability to recover to dissimilar hardware;
