Microsoft-EMC Launch Solution for Backing up Branch Office Data

Microsoft and EMC launched a 10-city tour this week to promote a joint solution for consolidating and protecting data in branch offices and other remote sites.

According to the companies, up to 60 percent of an large organization's information may be located away from the main data center in branch offices or other remote facilities. Microsoft and EMC have put together a solution involving Microsoft's Windows Storage Server 2003, the EMC NetWin 200 network attached storage system and EMC's Legato RepliStor software.

The NetWin 200 NAS is loaded with Windows Storage Server 2003, which is Microsoft's third-generation NAS-specific OS. The RepliStor software asynchronously copies Windows-based data via LAN and WAN networks across long distances.

The tour began Thursday in Boston and continues to Atlanta; Chicago; Denver; Irvine, Calif.; Irving, Texas; Mountain View, Calif.; New York City; Redmond, Wash.; and Washington, D.C. The companies have set up a Web site at www.protectandconsolidate.com.
