By adding TimeSpring to the Double-Take suite of products, the company extends its recovery approach beyond disaster recovery for catastrophic failures, to operational recovery, such as recovering from routine human errors.
TimeSpring enhances Double-Take systems to perform granular or item-level recoveries, from any point in time.
This enables IT administrators to "rewind" and "fast-forward" the data on the server and recover to the moment before an unwanted change, said Double-Take.
