PeerSync - Backup Edition for Servers

PeerLink	  	  	     	 Overview Specification Screen Shot Trial Download    PeerLink File Collaboration is an enterprise-level, real-time, multi-directional, distributed file locking and synchronization technology that ensures the same data exists on all participating servers regardless of where changes occur, and prevents users from accessing files that are currently in-use by another user in the session.   A file collaboration session consists of two or more participating servers, and a folder hierarchy called the Watch Set, located on each server which will be kept synchronized by propagating file locks and modifications to all participating servers in real-time.   PeerLink has local and remote characteristics that form the basis of a distributed application framework.PeerLink installations are composed of 3 primary components:   1. PeerLink Hub The Hub is the central component of the PeerLink framework. All PeerLink solutions are installed, configured and started at the Hub.  2. PeerLink Broker The Broker makes up the central messaging system that supports PeerLink applications. The Broker provides the core communication facility that connects the Hub and Agents in a PeerLink collaboration environment.  3. PeerLink Agent The Agent is a lightweight component that is installed on a networked host that enables it to participate in a PeerLink collaboration environment. Image

WAN-Optimized Real-time Backup for Windows and NetApp

PeerSync Backup Edition for Servers is not your traditional backup solution that creates one large backup file (*.bkf); it actually creates and maintains file and directory replicas on the target server in real-time for the following scenarios:

    • Windows to Windows
    • Windows to NetApp Data ONTAP 7.x and clustered Data ONTAP
    • NetApp Data ONTAP 7.x and clustered Data ONTAP to Windows
    • NetApp Data ONTAP 7.x to clustered Data ONTAP
    • NetApp clustered Data ONTAP to Data ONTAP 7.x

And, thanks to Peer’s integration with NetApp Data ONTAP, PeerSync Backup Edition for Servers delivers a high performance, real-time solution for backing up NetApp servers in branch offices to a centralized NetApp Filer.
