About TOLIS Group, Inc.
TOLIS Group, Inc., is a privately held profitable and debt-free corporation headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona. The singular focus of TOLIS Group™ is the development and support of ultra-reliable data backup and restore solutions for end-users and OEMs based on TOLIS Group's proven BRU™ technology.
The genesis of BRU in 1985 as a commercially available tool was driven by the inability of popular tar-based operations to reliably backup and restore archives on Unix systems. The mandate of BRU's design was to return the most data possible during a restore, limited only by physical damage.
To achieve the mandate, BRU was essentially designed "backwards" by first defining the necessary checks and balances that would come into play during a restore and then implementing them into the backup process. This is a profound difference from a "backup forward" design approach, and, unlike other tools, BRU solutions are able to recover from read and tape read errors during a restore to return the most data possible. In an age of 30-50% data recovery failure rates being realized, BRU technology delivers Backup You Can Trust℠.
In 1994, BRU Backup & Restore Utility became the first available commercial Linux® application (not just backup) for end-users, released at Linux kernel 0.99pl12. Since then, BRU has been awarded more recognition from the Linux community than any other backup software tool. TOLIS Group now provides BRU Server™, BRU Workstation™, and BRU Desktop™ for Linux and Unix systems.
In 2003 TOLIS Group engaged in the Macintosh® market place, releasing solutions that draw on BRU's heritage of reliable backup to provide the same proven performance for Mac OS X users enjoyed by Unix users. BRU Server™ and BRU Producer's Edition™ for Mac OS X® are now setting the high-water standard of Mac OS X backup and restore. Additional solutions for Mac OS X include bruCLONE™, TOLIS Group's Mac OS X hard disk cloning tool, and TOLIS Tape Tools™ which is available to transfer existing tar, cpio and pax archives to the Mac OS X platform.
In January of 2005 TOLIS Group announced its bruAPP™ Backup Appliance solution. A data backup and restore-focused appliance that delivers the industry's first truly "server-less" backup services across client/server system topologies. The bruAPP Backup Appliance virtually eliminates the configuration, installation, and compatibility issues faced when designing and building a data backup system. In January of 2010, TOLIS Group entered further into the hardware market providing one stop shopping and support for tape and BRU software bundled offerings.
BRU technology also provides unparalleled support of regulatory governance.
