BRU SERVER 1.1 FOR MAC OS X DATA BACKUP FROM TOLIS GROUP DELIVERS ENHANCED
WORKFLOW AND SYNCHRONIZATION MODULE
Heightened ease-of-use and alleviating an administrator’s workload highlight
the enhancements shown at WWDC in San Francisco
WWDC 2004, San Francisco =96 June 28, 2004 =96 TOLIS Group, Inc., developer=
ultra-reliable BRU=99 brand of data protection solutions, today announces th=
immediate availability of BRU Server=99 for Mac OS X 1.1 that delivers enhan=
operability and workflow. Also announced is functionality that allows users=
sync their key data to the server much like a PDA/Desktop scenario.
A system administrator’s job is complex, and the requirement to protect
critical data across the organization can be daunting. As Mac OS X is
increasingly being implemented across larger organizations, increased worklo=
on computing resources, especially the administrator, beg the availability o=
easy-to-use applications that are robust and deliver improved
“We have produced a graphical interface that enhances BRU Server’s ease-of-
operability to the point that non-backup literate administrators can easily
protect data across the largest of organizations,” said Tim Jones, president=
Much like following a map to reach a destination in a logical flow, the new =
Server interface presents its information and choices to the user in a clear
and concise manner that is easy to understand and follow.
“Mac OS X is a modern operating system that delivers the power of UNIX with =
reliability, ease-of-use and elegance of the Macintosh,” said Ron Okamoto,
Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. “With BRU Server f=
Mac OS X TOLIS Group has demonstrated its ability to produce reliable data
protection solutions for Mac OS X.”
BRU Server’s Synchronization Module will be used in conjunction with BRU
Server’s robust Disk Staging (D2D) capability, and allows an administrator t=
segment a portion of the disk stage as a repository to which end-users can
backup (sync) and restore his or her own files without backup administrator
The administrator defines which end-users are granted permission to sync the=
files, and the disk capacity allotted to each of them =96 dependent upon the
nature of their data, whether textual or audio/graphical works of art. The
synchronization tool is a complement to the normal backup strategy and offlo=
the requirement to continually restore files “yesterday,” as typically deman=
by impatient users who have lost their information.
BRU Server for Mac OS X users covered under TOLIS’ extended technical suppor=
agreement will be upgraded to v1.1 at no cost. The Synchronization Module,
available in Q3, 2004, will be a standard inclusion in BRU Server Enterprise
version, and an option for use with BRU Server Network or BRU Server Basic w=
incremental client system support has been added.
Scaling from support of two networked systems to support across an enterpris=
BRU Server 1.1 takes Mac OS X data protection to a new level.
