Lucid8 Ships DigiVault Update
Lucid8 LLC announced last week it is shipping the latest update to its DigiVault
continuous data protection and disaster recovery package for Microsoft Exchange
Server 5.5, 2000 and 2003.
DigiVault 1.4 adds advanced clustering support, extra redundancy for repository
storage service, and support for user-supplied encryption keys. It also now
features multi-threading support to speed backups, as well as licensing support,
Lucid8 officials said in a statement. The
company shipped version 1 of the package last fall.
DigiVault backs up data every time a change is made, ensuring e-mail is continually
protected. The package is designed to provide protection against loss of e-mails
sent between the last scheduled backup and a system failure. It is meant to
work with the company's mainstay GOexchange Exchange Server.
Additionally, DigiVault is the first module of a new technology strategy that
Newcastle, Wash.-based Lucid8 calls its Enterprise System Protector (ESP) framework.
Further ESP modules for SQL Server, Active Directory, SharePoint, Internet Information
Server and other third-party platforms, such as Oracle's database systems and
IBM's Lotus notes, are also in progress.
DigiVault is licensed on a per server basis, with pricing based on the number
of mailboxes. It starts at $695 for 25 mailboxes. Customers with valid support
agreements can get the update at no additional cost, the company said.
