Legato Releases Data Management Suite

Legato Systems, Inc. today announced the availability of a suite of fully automated data management solutions that it says addresses the specific needs of data centers, branch offices and business continuance.

The suite, Automated Data Center, Automated Branch Office and Automated Continuance of Data Center Operations, is available with consulting services and focuses on three areas of IT: information protection, application availability and management.

The the core component for information protection is Legato(R) NetWorker(R), Legato's premier solution for data backup, restore, and archive. In addition, Celestra(r), a serverless backup product, is available to NetWorker customers looking for higher levels of application availability during data protection. Legato is also reintroducing Legato Cluster under the name Legato Automated Availability Manager. As the core component for storage management, Legato will begin shipping GEMS(R) Console for integrated and simplified management of information protection across the network.

"There is so much new technology being thrown at enterprise customers that many are throwing up their hands just when their storage management needs are skyrocketing," said Steve Duplessie, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Storage Group. "To be effective in not only making a sale but in truly helping customers solve their problems, you have to present solutions that are well integrated and are accompanied by consulting and services required to support them. These new offerings should certainly make Legato more attractive to these customers."
