"Mid market customers have long accepted they cannot have a backup and recovery
solution that is failproof, scalable and easy to manage within their budget.
EVault 7 Appliances are changing the game by giving IT fast, local access to
their data, plus offsite protection with a copy in the Cloud, at no-brainer
prices," said Daniel Bankert, EVault`s Vice President of Server Backup &
Archiving Products. "We believe we are the only appliance provider offering true
failover capability, which is the best way to protect and preserve your data.
Most organizations consider their data to be one of their most valuable assets.
If failure is not an option for your IT staff, you should be looking at EVault 7

EVault Appliances are backup and recovery appliances that offer users the
benefits of the Cloud - resilient, off site data protection - while retaining on
site control of their data and operations. The next generation EVault 7
Appliances are purpose built with pre-configured hardware, storage and software
designed for simple and efficient Cloud hybrid data protection. Customers have
the choice to deploy EVault Plug-n-Protect - an award-winning, all-in-one
appliance with customizable Cloud replication - or EVault Express Recovery
Appliance, which adds a local cache to Cloud backups to speed data recovery.
With either appliance, customers enjoy world-class support from EVault, their
single point of contact for software, hardware, and storage. 

Simple to Manage and Scale. Better for the Bottom Line.

EVault 7 Appliances eliminate the need to purchase backup licenses when
customers deploy new servers into the environment. With unlimited agent and
application plug-in licensing now included in every appliance, managing a backup
and recovery platform is easier than ever. Many models come prepopulated with
additional hard drives - up to 24 TB - so scaling to accommodate more data can
be as simple as upgrading the license. The redesigned models now have a
converged server-storage architecture, resulting in 30 percent lower power
consumption. And, with the CPU and storage residing within a single machine, the
appliance is easier to manage.

support. EVault Plug-n-Protect comes packaged with 3 TB, 6 TB, or 12 TB of

EVault Express Recovery Appliance is a local backup and recovery appliance for
