Yosemite Technologies Announces Spring Promotion for Microsoft SQL Server and Exchange Databases

The 'Database Aware Solutions Suite' Provides A Comprehensive, Cost-Effective, 24x7 Back-Up and Disaster Recovery Strategy for the Millions of Microsoft Business Environments

Fresno, California, UNITED STATES

FRESNO, Calif., March 8, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- Yosemite Technologies, a leading developer of multi-platform backup and recovery software solutions announced today its Spring promotion -- the TapeWare(r) Database Aware Solutions Suite. The promotion is designed to provide a 24x7 backup and recovery solution for Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server and Client Server environments.

The Database Aware Solutions Suite provides small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) with an efficient, cost-effective solution to manage their Exchange or Microsoft SQL Server databases. The bundles also include TapeWare Master Server with support for a single server. The solution offers users the flexibility to perform full or incremental backups of their respective databases, which allows them to implement a consistent database backup strategy. In addition, TapeWare's built-in calendar-based scheduler, tape loader and library support allows customers to fully automate the backup process for "lights out" operation.

The solutions suite allows customers to redirect a database restore to another server or restore the database under a different name. The solution performs online "hot backups" so users can continue to access vital data while performing a backup and thus eliminating the need for a backup window.

"Online business communications are 24 hour, seven day a week processes so data protection shouldn't stop at the end of the workday. However, businesses often overlook the need to protect their vital data on a 24x7 basis. This promotion is designed to make SMEs 'aware' of what they need to do to fully protect their data," stated John Maxwell, vice president of worldwide marketing at Yosemite Technologies. "Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SQL Server are probably the most widely used databases in SMEs today. Our new Database Aware Solutions Suite provides the millions of Microsoft business users with a powerful and highly scalable, 24x7 data protection solution."

TapeWare is an easy to install and use, multi-platform backup and disaster recovery software solution designed for the SME market. The product offers up to eight concurrent data streams per tape drive for fast data transfer. Its modular architecture allows users to increase their TapeWare capacity as their business grows. The product underscores Backup Simplified(TM) with complete, automated tape media management and an intuitive, wizard drive user interface. TapeWare was one of the first backup software solutions to receive certification for Microsoft Server 2003.

The Database Aware Solutions Suite includes a promotion of 25% off the retail price. The promotion also includes an instant rebate of up to $100 off the product bundles. The rebate is available to resellers exclusively through Ingram Micro.

"Yosemite's new Database Aware Solutions Suite addresses the wide range of Microsoft SQL and Exchange databases, providing resellers with a solution that adapts to most small-to-medium enterprise businesses," said Jim Harr, vice president, purchasing, product management, Ingram Micro North America. "The suite's attractive 'always-on' backup feature and our special Spring promotion combine to make this solution a great offering for Ingram Micro resellers targeting SME customers."
