Table-Top Backup from Quantum

Arthur Cole

The concept of instant backup takes on a whole new meaning with the advent of a new table-top storage system from Quantum, the first of its kind to offer data deduplication, says eWEEK.


The GoVault Data Protection Solution is about the size of a toaster and features a pair of removable cartridges totaling 40 GB. A Windows-based storage package sets up in a matter of minutes offering dedupe and disaster recovery.


The cartridges are fairly rugged, capable of withstanding a one-meter drop onto a hard surface, so you can take them home at night or store them in a secure location should the need for recovery arise.


Data deduplication is coming on as the hot new backup application, according to research by the 451 Group. The firm reports that dedupe revenues should grow from virtually nil in 2005 to more than $1 billion by 2009.

I was able to get a early GoVault docking station, cartridges and the dedupe software. I'm a developer and use it to keep track of versions of source code, especiallycopies of code that I don't want to check in. This has proven to be a lifesaver. I've always hated tape backup or even tape-like backup to disk. The full backups and incrementals are hard to track and there is no effective search engine that can show me all versions saved of a specific file or files.GoVault Data Protection has a powerful search engine that shows me all of my "restore points" as well as all the versions of a specific file. It uses a powerful regular expression like search so I don't need to know the exact file name or even the beginning characters. After using it for a short time, I couldn't live without it. You've got to try it to believe it. Reply
