Reduce login and logout times with PAT from triCerat


triCerat have announced the release a new Profile Acceleration Technology (PAT) product.

Since the inception of the user profile, system administrators and end users alike have been plagued with slow login and logout times and profile corruption. This results in endless help desk calls and end user downtime, creating problems for everyone in the office.

A Typical Situation
When 8 a.m. rolls around, everyone logs in at the same time. This creates a virtual traffic jam between the profile server and the user's workstations. Files, applications, and settings all try to load to their desktop destinations all at once. This strain results in slow login times server-wide. Files can become frazzled or stop working all together. The same is true during rush hour at the end of the day, causing delayed logoff time.

Meet PAT!
Install triCerat's Profile Acceleration Technology (PAT) to direct those files, applications, and settings to their locations on-demand. Not only does the user experience improve but network utilization is reduced and spread evenly throughout the day. This relieves unnecessary strain on the server and increases speed of login and logoff times.

Why PAT?
Reduce Login and logout times
Reduce network utilization
Reduce profile corruption
Retrieve profile settings on-demand
Less stress on the server

PHD Virtual has expanded the unmatched value of its award-winning data protection software with the release of PHD Virtual Backup 6.1. This latest version builds on our unique, patented virtual appliance architecture to deliver the most powerful, feature-filled, easy to use backup solution for virtual servers at a fraction of the cost of competitive alternatives.

Rollback Recovery -
Immediate Access to Data
When a virtual machine crashes, how long does it take you to get it back? Unfortunately for many, the answer is hours, or even days! PHD Virtual can get you that virtual machine back in minutes with Rollback Recovery. Instead of a lengthy, full VM restore process, simply roll a VM back to an earlier state by restoring only the virtual disk changes over top of the existing VM. This can increase the RTO of a full VM recovery, sometimes up to 100X faster!
Rollback Recovery continues to prove PHD Virtual’s dedication to providing dynamic recovery options that decrease RTO and enhance the value of our customers’ businesses.
It’s your data. Get it back as quickly as possible with Rollback Recovery.

PHD Instant Recovery (for VMware) extended to Full/Incremental Backup Mode

Previously available only to customers using the Virtual Full backup mode, PHD Virtual extends the power of PHD Instant Recovery to include Full/Incremental backup mode as well. This gives individuals backing up to network shares or deduplication appliances the ability leverage PHD Instant Recovery to drastically decrease RTO and effectively test backups.
PHD Instant Recovery allows users to make an application available as quickly as possible in the event of a failure, without the need for additional infrastructure or a lengthy restore process.
In the event of a failure, PHD Instant Recovery will simply:
• Turn on a VM using the data that resides directly on the backup target, enabling users to experience next to no downtime.
• Then, once ready, users can either leverage VMware Storage vMotion or use PHD Motion to move the VM's to production storage.

Reporting Enhancements - Reduce Risk, Ensure Compliance

Many organizations are required to report on backup status and risk to upper management and regulatory bodies for compliance purposes. PHD Virtual has enhanced the reporting capabilities of the VBA to meet these needs.
Exporting Job History
Easily export job history from the PHD UI into Excel for a report that can be stored for long term compliance needs, or provided to management. This report provides complete coverage of all job statuses across all VBA’s.

Data Protection Risk Management Report
Gain visibility into your data protection integrity by viewing a list of all VM’s in the environment, along with information on their sizes, virtual disks and the date of the last successful backup. This report allows you to quickly see which VM’s in your environment haven’t been backed up in a while, or, at all, and take the appropriate action to ensure data protection compliance and integrity. Lastly, easily copy and paste the data into excel for reporting or archival purposes.

Job Copy
Accelerate Backup Scheduling
Spend less time creating and scheduling backup jobs with Job Copy. With the click of a button you can select a backup job and copy it as many times as needed. This accelerates the backup job creation process, allowing you to scale even more easily than before.
