Leadership Data Protection - BRU Server for Mac OS X is a robust network backup and restore utility that protects critical client/server information on one or two systems, or across an organization regardless of size. Based on the venerable BRU engine, BRU Server for Mac OS X sets the backup industry's high water mark for reliability and data recoverability when protecting data on networked systems.

Investment protection - BRU Server delivers immediate investment protection because there is no requirement to install a new backup server or special disk-based virtual tape (VTL) technology. BRU Server's overhead is exceptionally low and can actually time-share with other server applications. Depending on one's network system topology, BRU Server will consume only 8% - 20% of a system's resources during backup/restore operations - allowing the majority of system resources to perform other tasks concurrently. Of course, a dedicated backup system is ideal, and a G4 with 512 MB of RAM will support 100's of client systems across the network.

BRU Server also delivers current and future tape investment protection. Out-of-the-box, BRU Server provides native support of all tape formats and all tape library configurations. Because of TOLIS' partnership with tape device manufacturers, we have early access to future tape technology. This access assures you of BRU's reliable support before the new technologies hit the streets. And all this is accomplished without the necessity of costly special drivers, additional hardware, or specially tasked systems.

From a licensing investment perspective, the growth of an organization's backup needs should not incur a severe financial penalty to provide the needed incremental backup services. BRU Server per-seat pricing of client system licenses is cost-effective and is not price-differentiated by system platform, the class of software being implemented on them, or by the volume of data residing on them.

BRU Server delivers exceptional investment protection.

Backup, Your Way - No two organizations are alike, nor have the same requirements of a backup system other than the requirement of reliability. BRU Server for provides the flexibility to administer the backup strategy via the intuitive graphical user interface or by using the character-based interface. BRU Server is also fully scriptable from the command line. The interfaces provide access to BRU Server's robust functionality, and backups can be administered locally, or remotely.

Shortest Backup Window - The time available (the backup window) to protect critical data is fast shrinking, and this poses a challenge. BRU Server for Mac OS X allows data to be committed directly to tape (the traditional approach) or can it can be "staged" in a centralized disk farm attached to the server to virtually eliminate the perceived backup window at the client system level.

Disaster Recovery - Restoring a damaged system is all about speed and accuracy. The BRU Server process to rebuild bare metal systems is significantly faster than the approach of other tools that involve bootable CDs. The combination of doing a minimum configuration OS X install (very fast), the accuracy and restorability of BRU backups, and TOLIS' Smart Restore capability quickly returns a damaged system exactly to its pre-failure state. TOLIS' bruCLONE solution can also be implemented to provide Disaster Recovery on Mac OS X desktop systems.

Bottom Line - Your organization's data is critical, and how to protect it is an important decision. BRU Server for Mac OS X delivers the reliability, functionality, flexibility, scalability and overall excellent value necessary to provide you with backup peace-of-mind.
