Asigra’s Televaulting 6.2 suite enables companies to backup data from a range of desktop and server operating systems using LAN and internet connections to transport the data, rather than old-fashioned tape. Asigra says the main reason that firms buy Televaulting is to backup data from remote sites to a central location. We found the Televaulting suite, which costs $11,250 (£5,752) for 200GB of compressed data, remarkable for its comprehensive range of options for handling multiple customers, such as various billing, data retention and SLA options. There are also controls to limit the amount of storage and bandwidth that customers and their individual computers can use. Data is stored on disks attached to the Televaulting server, while metadata, such as descriptions of when and where the data came from, are stored in SQL databases.
