San Mateo, Calif.-based BakBone Software Inc. recently added NAS (network attached storage) to its flagship back-up and recovery software, NetVault. NetVault 6.03, previously a SAN- (storage area network) specific solution, now uses NDMPs (network data management protocols), and views mixed storage environments as one cohesive network and presents this to network administrators through a single interface, BakBone said. Version 6.03 can now assist IT managers in running critical back-up and recovery tasks across both SAN and NAS storage, which previously required two separate software programs, according to BakBone. Windows 2000/NT and Linux versions of NetVault 6.03 are priced at US$1,000, and Unix configurations are priced at US$3,725. For details, visit the company on the Web at www.bakbone.com.
