B&L Associates' Archived Data Manager(R) to Run on Linux and Oracle(R)

NEEDHAM, Mass., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- B&L Associates, Inc., the leader in open systems tape management solutions, announced today that their revolutionary central management system for all historical backup catalogs, Archived Data Manager(® )(ADM), now runs on Linux operating systems and Oracle databases.

ADM is a comprehensive, Web-based application that consolidates all of your historical backup catalogs. ADM also quickly identifies and accesses archived information needed for litigation, providing up to a 50% reduction on eDiscovery costs. This represents significant savings considering eDiscovery costs are averaging $1.5 million per matter, and those numbers are expected to go higher.

B&L Associates wanted to provide these benefits for the steadily growing Linux community as well. In 2007, it was estimated that Linux held almost 13% of the overall server market. However, that number could be larger because it is based solely on the number of Linux servers sold and not on the number of machines running Linux. Moreover, 60% of Web-servers now run Linux.

"Archived Data Manager has been available to run on Windows and SQL Server databases," said Michael Kramer, VP Sales and Marketing at B&L Associates. "We felt it was important to make ADM available to Linux and Oracle users and support an important and growing segment of our IT community."

A key component of Archived Data Manager is its patent pending technology that extracts information from historical backup catalogs and organizes the information in a centralized database, enabling users to access the information without the need of the original backup application. This allows organizations to migrate information to new systems and decommission servers while remaining fully compliant with all enterprise and government accessibility regulations.

Developing the technology that allows ADM to run on Linux and Oracle is the latest effort by B&L Associates to make their products accessible to all data centers, regardless of backup or operating systems.
