    EMC Enhances Award Winning Retrospect Backup and Recovery Software for Small and Medium Businesses

    EMC Retrospect 7.5 Delivers New Features and Better Performance

    Hopkinton, Mass. - February 06, 2006 -

    EMC Corporation, world leader in information management and storage, today announced EMC Retrospect 7.5, a significant new version of the award winning EMC Retrospect for Windows backup and recovery software.  It has never been easier for small and medium businesses (SMBs) to implement automated, business-class data protection.

    Retrospect delivers powerful yet easy-to-use data protection for servers, applications, desktops and notebooks.  New features include user-initiated restores, automated deployment of client software, automated software updates, the ability to restore data or copy to tape during backups to disk, offline verification, and broader support for the latest operating systems and business critical applications.

    Larry Zulch, Vice President and General Manager, EMC Insignia, EMC Corporation said, "The need for effective backup and recovery has never been greater. SMBs who want the best protection with the least effort will find Retrospect to be their partner in recovery management, the real reason to back up.  Retrospect 7.5 is the most advanced Retrospect product ever offered, with enhancements in many significant areas. And through government-certified AES encryption users can ensure their backup data is always secure."

    "The automated deployment of client software and software updates over the Internet are the Retrospect 7.5 enhancements that have improved our efficiency," said Chuck Fee, IT Manager, Oregon Social Learning Center. "With 400 PC's to support, being able to push the client install is critical for us. Given that number of users, we are also moving to fault-tolerant systems so Retrospect’s cluster support is also a welcome addition for us."

    What’s New in Retrospect

    "I have been using Retrospect since Version 1," said Ed Glassgow, President, Scott, Cox & Associates. "Every release has been better and more feature rich.  EMC Retrospect 7.5 follows this trend with more options, better speed, excellent stability and good value.  I find it hard to imagine a better backup tool."

    Retrospect is renowned for its ease of use and power. It automatically adjusts backup operations to ensure that all computers are protected without requiring manual intervention. Unlike other backup applications, it accurately restores a computer to a point in time that an incremental backup was performed, eliminating the need to perform weekly full backups. Management of onsite and offsite backup media is greatly simplified, and AES encryption ensures the safety of the backup media in transit and at rest.

    Pricing and Availability

    Retrospect 7.5 for Windows backup and recovery software is available immediately from authorized EMC resellers and EMC Velocity SMB channel partners at a starting price of $399 for Retrospect for Windows Business Editions, and $129 for Retrospect Professional Edition designed for Small Office/Home Office environments.  Special upgrade pricing is also available for earlier versions of Retrospect and competitive replacements.
