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.
