Innovation Data Processing, a market leader in storage management products, has released a powerful addition to the FDR/UPSTREAM Storage Management family of products. FDR/UPSTREAM is a complete backup and restore solution for corporate data distributed across a heterogeneous network.

For over 10 years, FDR¨/UPSTREAM¨ has been protecting corporate data for a variety of organizations while providing reliable and verifiable, and affordable protection for applications and databases for a variety of systems and platforms.

The UPSTREAM Reservoir supports a wide variety of disk, tape and robotic devices. Backup devices can be a single tape drive, tape library, silo, or disk arrays.

In addition, the UPSTREAM Reservoir provides the ability to backup to disk or tape and provides the option for data to be backed up to disk, staged from disk and automatically moved to tape.
