Atempo Delivers Industry-First Dedicated File and E-mail Archiving Support for Mac Environments


Atempo Now Offers Comprehensive Mac Support Across Product Portfolio

Palo Alto, Calif.-Atempo, Inc., a leading provider of cross-platform data protection and archiving solutions, has introduced a series of industry-first enterprise digital archiving solutions for combined Windows-Mac computing environments.

# The introduction of Atempo Digital Archive (ADA) for Mac marks the first dedicated file archiving software to deliver enterprise-class archiving capabilities to the Mac platform.

# In addition, with new support for Microsoft Entourage 2008, Atempo Digital Archive for Messaging (ADAM) becomes the first e-mail archiving software to support the fast-growing e-mail client for Macs.

# Atempo also furthered its commitment to serving Mac-intensive vertical markets with the integration of Apple Final Cut Server with ADA, ensuring long-term storage for media assets created in data-intensive industries.

Together, the announcements reinforce Atempo’s dedication to delivering unmatched support for the broadest range of systems and devices, and demonstrate the company’s continued commitment to the Mac market. As a founding member of the Enterprise Desktop Alliance (EDA), a collaboration among enterprise class software developers to deliver solutions that streamline the deployment, integration and management of the Mac in sophisticated Windows-managed IT environments, Atempo has a thorough understanding of the data management challenges faced by Mac users, as well as their unique corresponding software needs.

Atempo Digital Archive enables the automated and end-user triggered movement of data from primary disk onto archival media, saving on storage costs and protecting digital assets for long-term retention. New features in ADA for Mac include the ability to archive data from an Apple Xserve, and the ability for end-users to install an ADA Client Interface, empowering individuals with the ability to manage the archive of their digital assets themselves. This unique function enables users to easily drag-and-drop files from their primary location directly into the archives. In addition, Mac users now have the advantage of ADA’s other distinctive features, including de-duplication, full content indexing and search, and Atempo Meter Utility – a sophisticated tool that identifies inactive, fixed content data ready for archive.

Atempo Digital Archive for Messaging is the first e-mail archiving product that supports Microsoft Entourage. The first release of ADAM for Entourage includes a plug-in that offers mailbox management and stubbing capabilities for Entourage users. Mac users utilizing Entourage as their primary e-mail client have the ability to access the emails that have been archived from the Exchange Server into ADAM directly from the Entourage interface. They now have the same level of access to the archived messages as traditional Outlook users.

ADA’s integration with Final Cut Server also marks an important step in serving data-intensive media and entertainment markets. The media asset management and workflow automation software is widely-used in this Mac-heavy industry, but by itself can only archive data to a very limited set of disk devices. With its integration with ADA, users can enable the storage of fixed-content media assets stored in Final Cut Server into a wide number of long-term storage devices. The archived assets are displayed in Final Cut Server and marked with a specific icon to ensure easy retrieval and quick restoration.

“For the first time, Mac users have a single source for comprehensive data protection and archiving solutions dedicated to preserving and enhancing the Mac experience,” said Karim Toubba, VP of marketing and product management at Atempo. “This announcement solidifies Atempo’s position as the premier provider of file and e-mail archiving solutions for a combined Mac/Windows environment, enabling choice in mid-market and larger organizations. Our full product portfolio allows companies to address the critical data growth issue by protecting and preserving any data on any system at any stage in its lifecycle.”

With ADA and ADAM matching Atempo Live Backup and Atempo Time Navigator in Mac support, Atempo now offers a complete line of data protection and archiving products customized for Mac users. In May, the company introduced Atempo Live Backup for Mac, the world’s first enterprise backup and recovery software with continuous data protection (CDP) functionality, allowing end-users to backup Mac desktops and laptops to the same storage media as their Windows peers. Atempo’s flagship storage management software, Atempo Time Navigator, also has a rich history of delivering powerful backups and rapid restorations to Mac environments, and introduced enhanced usability and support in February.
