TimeSpring(R) Software Corporation and Solution Data Ltd. announced an agreement under which Solution Data will offer TimeSpring’s TimeData(TM) continuous data protection (CDP) software to its customers across the United Kingdom. Solution Data is a well-respected IT service provider of data integrity and information security solutions. Solution Data’s customers include the healthcare giant, McKesson (NYSE: MCK), the media giant, BBC Worldwide, and the Northern Trust (Nasdaq: NTRS) banking and investment company.
Financial regulations and data privacy initiatives in the UK are driving companies to refocus on data protection and address inadequacies of traditional data backup and snapshots. Traditional backup to tape, snapshot systems and data replication leave critical protection gaps, can disrupt live operations, and data recovery can be slow and problematic. Continuous Data Protection technology, like TimeSpring’s TimeData software, addresses these issues.
TimeData CDP users can recover from data loss, corruption or security breaches within minutes and they can recover complete or partial data sets to any desirable points in time. There are no protection gaps and data movement to a local or remote repository is non-disruptive. TimeSpring’s TimeData is the only native file-based CDP offering that provides complete application data protection for Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint and NTFS. TimeSpring’s TimeData file-based software offers more functions, is easier to use and is less expensive than alternative block-based CDP products.
“We’re recommending TimeSpring’s CDP software to our customers because of its unique ability to protect the integrity of data, and the associated meta data, across the entire Windows platform,” said Andrew Hulley, Managing Director of Solution Data. “The TimeSpring TimeData software is a mature data protection solution and has distinct advantages for organisations using traditional back up, snapshot and replication approaches. TimeData software is extremely effective, very cost-effective and easy to manage, hence our customers can quickly demonstrate a return on their investment.”
TimeSpring’s agreement with Solution Data is part of TimeSpring’s expansion into the European market. In June 2006, TimeSpring announced a multi-country distribution agreement with Germany’s Orchestra GmbH. TimeSpring also announced that Germany’s Topmedia Storage Solutions GmbH is using their TimeData software in its Topstore CDP Appliance product.
TimeData has been installed at companies across such industries as financial services, retail, government, and transportation in the United States and Canada. Companies that have deployed TimeData range from medium to large enterprises, protecting Exchange, SQL Server and file-based application data.
“Solution Data’s customers have high standards,” said Janae Lee, CEO of TimeSpring. “These high standards along with Solution Data’s expertise and experience make it especially gratifying that Solution Data chose TimeSpring as their preferred CDP solution.”
