Softek TDMF and Replicator for Unix Validated by HP for Performing Non-Disruptive Data Moves To High-End Superdome, Mid-Range rx8640/rx7640, and Entry-Level rx1620 ServersVIENNA, Va.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 22, 2006— Softek(R) Storage Solutions, the leader in Nonstop Data Mobility(TM) software solutions, today announced that the Softek Transparent Data Migration Facility (TDMF) data migration software and the Softek Replicator for Unix data replication software have successfully completed certification testing to deliver maximum performance and continuous availability for moving data non-disruptively in multi-vendor environments to high-end, mid-range and entry-class HP Itanium servers.
In completing certification testing for HP Integrity Servers operating on the latest version of the HP's Unix operating system (HP-UX 11i v2), Softek TDMF and Softek Replicator for Unix have been accepted by HP as proven data migration solutions for moving data to and between the high-end HP Integrity Superdome, as well as the mid-range HP Integrity rx8640 and rx7640 Servers. In addition, because of its support for HP-UX 11i v2, these Softek data mobility products also can migrate data non-disruptively to entry-class HP Integrity rx1620 Servers.
Data migrations to HP Integrity servers using Softek Nonstop Data Mobility(TM) software can be performed locally, as well as over long distances using via TCP/IP, which enables integration and adaptability to a wide range of data center environments for server and storage replacement projects, as well as for load balancing and other performance improvement activities.
"Softek TDMF and Replicator have been used for several years by HP Services as a data migration tool to move data to HP servers at customer sites throughout North America and Europe," said Amena Ali, senior vice president of marketing and worldwide product strategy. "This new certification validates interoperability for a popular component of our Nonstop Data Mobility product suite and assures HP customers and their global reseller partners that moving data to all HP Integrity Servers using Softek TDMF IP can be performed seamlessly to their business operations by being non-disruptive to mission-critical applications. Solution certification is also a key activity as a member of the HP Developer & Solution Partner Program for independent software vendors."
Certification testing was performed by Softek at the company's Quality Assurance Labs located in Dublin, Ireland.
