A major new upgrade to Arkeia Network Backup solution reaffirms its leadership position in the Linux data protection marketplace.

The new Arkeia features support for NDMP network-attached storage (NAS) devices and Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS) technology embedded in MS-Windows 2003 servers, as well as incorporates enhancements to existing elements in the award-winning data protection solution.

“Arkeia Network Backup v5.3 consolidates our position as the pre-eminent Linux network backup solution with the widest number of supported platforms, operating systems and architectures,” said Phil Roussel, Arkeia CEO. “It also reflects our commitment to expanding product research and development efforts to increase our share of the worldwide data protection market.”

Arkeia Network Backup now supports NDMP (version 3 compliant) and is compatible with NDMP-based NAS such as Network Appliance, Snap Appliance and Network Storage devices. Arkeia can back up the NAS to a locally attached tape drive or library, and all backup and restore functions can be performed via the graphical user interface.

With the implementation of the Microsoft VSS API, Arkeia Network Backup can back up snapshots of Windows 2003 Servers offering seamless data protection for servers with running services.

Other new or enhanced features include:

Support of Kernel 2.6 Linux distributions

Increased 64-bit Linux support with packages for both Intel Itanium-2 and AMD Opteron

A new Blowfish algorithm supporting up to 448-bit encryption

Expanded platform support including Debian packages compatible with the apt-get system

Extended command line interface
