Microsoft has announced the availability of its Data Protection Manager disc-to-disc continuous data back-up system.
The software saves snapshots of data off Windows servers throughout the day to allow IT administrators to restore and back up files from disc faster.
Data Protection Manager works on Windows Server 2003 and takes up to 64 snapshots of data, storing them on a standard server.
Prices begin at $950 (£560) per server.
Data Protection Manager had been under beta development for well over a year. IBM recently launched its own Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files solution.
