InfoStor: Special Report - CDP Delivers Granular Recovery

Yet another variation on the general theme is CDP functionality for image-based backup and disaster recovery software. For example, UltraBac Software recently introduced a CDP option — dubbed Continuous Image Protection (CIP) — for its UltraBac 8.3 and UBDR 4.0 software.

"The other advantage of image-based CDP is that the software is application-agnostic," says Morgan Edwards, UltraBac's president and CEO.
