Zetta VP of Products to Speak at Cloud Expo

NEW YORK, NY, June 6, 2011 –(BUSINESS WIRE)– Enterprise cloud storage provider Zetta today announced the general availability of Zetta Data Protect for Linux, at the same time as the beta release of ZettaMirrorâ„¢ 2.5, the client-side agent of Zetta Data Protect. ZettaMirror 2.5 includes new functionality, such as client-side transport deduplication, that offers current and future customers new capabilities and significant performance increases. Zetta will be demonstrating the upgraded solution at Cloud Expo [] in New York City, where Chris Schin, vice president of products at Zetta, will talk about “Questions You Should Ask a Cloud Service Provider…and Good Answers” [] in his session on June 6 at 2:40 p.m. local time.

Zetta Data Protect immediately and securely replicates and protects data offsite. Previously available for Microsoft Windows environments, Zetta Data Protect is now also generally available for all popular Linux environments, including RedHat, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, and SUSE.

ZettaMirrorâ„¢ 2.5, available as a free upgrade for existing customers, includes client-side transport deduplication, via sub-file difference detection in its synchronization, improving replication efficiency up to 99 percent, and adds the ability to auto-exclude data from syncs via filtering by date range, size range, or specific directories and file paths. Transport deduplication combined with Zetta’s block-based snapshot technology replicates full backups every day for a fraction of the storage cost, with substantially better performance than traditional deduplication technologies. The new upgrade also includes enhanced notifications and networked drive mapping improvements, resulting in better backup of network drives for increased protection of customers’ mission-critical data.

“Customers are seeing 10 to 20 times improvements in sync times using the new ZettaMirror 2.5 client,” says Chris Schin, Zetta vice president of products. “This release continues an impressive series of customer-driven new features and performance improvements rolled out by Zetta over the past nine months.”
