LOS ANGELES, June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Newly released in the United States is a sector-based backup and recovery software from Rectiphy called ActiveImage Protector (AIP) v.2.7.5 that delivers spot-on virtual environment optimization to the American software market. Rectiphy's first version was released in Japan by NetJapan Inc. in 2009 and was extensively tested in corporate environments before bringing the product to the U.S. in May 2010.
Redesigning many of its elements for the American market, Rectiphy's AIP v. 2.7.5 adds two new features for supporting legacy servers: Hot imaging support for Windows 2000 Server and older-version support of the Windows PE 2005 recovery environment. These new features allow a wide range of backup, recovery and virtualization support for real-world server situations. Optimized for virtual environments, Rectiphy AIP uniquely can hot image a Microsoft Hyper-V host and all guest virtual machines and applications without shutting them down, then restore the entire system to the state they were in at the time of the backup.
"We have an incredible ensemble of people who have designed, developed and delivered Rectiphy AIP," said Rectiphy's Vice President of Global Sales, Ken Kilgore. "AIP will add more value to our customers and IT investments, so it's a win-win-win for them, our sales partners and us."
As older servers are upgraded, it's often the case that legacy applications do not run on the newer Operating Systems (OS) (for example, Windows Server 2008) so virtual environments hosting multiple guest OS (Windows Server 2003/2000 server, etc.) tend to proliferate. However, lurking issues haunt IT administrators when migrating legacy systems. IT administrators grapple with the older servers' obsolete specs, lack of older device drivers on newer OSs, insufficient memory problems and scores of incompatibilities. Virtualization solves many of these issues but the problem remained of how to reliably backup virtual environments. Rectiphy ActiveImage Protector finally solves this problem.
Rectiphy's custom-built optimization for virtual environments extends to its cutting-edge licensing. Rectiphy AIP streamlines license management for the virtual world -- where the number of operating systems can be flexibly increased or decreased -- to create a scalable, intuitive approach that reaches beyond the cumbersome traditional licensing of physical machines.
