June 11, 2007 â€“ FarStone Technology has developed a new suite of disk imaging and data backup software targeting small business users. Based on FarStone DriveClone, the suite includes versions for work stations, servers, networks, and system builders.
The new suite of hard disk imaging products combines FarStone‘s RestoreIT data disaster technology with expanded disk imaging functionality. The software performs complete and incremental backups within Windows, and a new snapshot feature automatically creates incremental backups at assigned intervals.
FarStone already supplies data backup and hard disk imaging solutions to Intel, Trend Micro, AOL, Phoenix Technologies, Seagate, and other leading technology companies. With the DriveClone product suite, FarStone is addressing two top data protection concerns of the small business market: comprehensive data protection and fast recovery time.
Many disk imaging tools are designed for highly technical users, or are easy to use but incomplete. The DriveClone suite is meant to fill the gap with a powerful but user-friendly disk imaging, cloning, and data recovery solution.
ABOUT THE DRIVECLONE PRODUCT SUITE
The DriveClone suite includes desktop or workstation versions of DriveClone 3 (www.farstone.com/software/driveclone.htm)and DriveClone 3 Pro (www.farstone.com/software/driveclone-pro.htm). Both products offer hard disk imaging, which saves an exact copy of the hard drive to an external location and enables complete recovery in the event of a system failure or hard drive crash. DriveClone also creates a cloned image of a partition or hard drive, which can be copied onto a new hard drive of equal or larger size.
DriveClone 3 Pro incorporates a component that automatically creates system snapshots at pre-determined intervals. These snapshots are stored in a secure area of a computer’s hard drive and can be easily accessed when a data disaster occurs, enabling a user to quickly roll back an entire system to a known “good point.” The technology is ideal for workers in the field or for users who may not have access to technical assistance.
DriveClone 3 Pro also includes File Version Recovery, allowing users to recover automatically saved versions of personal files that may have been deleted or overwritten.
DriveClone Server contains all of the features of DriveClone Pro, but is designed to run on Windows server operating systems.
DriveClone System Recovery (SR) is a customizable disk imaging solution for system builders. It creates a factory image that allows end-users to quickly restore their systems to an original factory state.
DriveClone Network offers remote access to clients PCs and is designed to enable remote or local system recovery for any configured system on a LAN.
