BRU SERVER FROM TOLIS GROUP HAS BEEN CERTIFIED TO SUPPORT PARALLELS VIRTUALIZATION SOFTWARE
Virtualized System Backup and Restore Without the Complexity
Scottsdale, AZ — July 17, 2008 — TOLIS Group, Inc., today announces a partnership with Parallels, Inc., a world leader in virtualization software. TOLIS Group's BRU Server™ network backup solution has been successfully tested for compatibility with Parallels™ Server for Mac virtualization software. TOLIS Group is the developer of the ultra-reliable BRU™ brand of data backup and restore solutions and is a Parallels Technology Partner. BRU Server is now listed in the Parallels Certified Products Catalog.
Virtualization software optimizes hardware investments by allowing systems to run virtual machines of different operating systems concurrently. Parallels Server for Mac is the first available server virtualization solution to virtualize the Mac. Traditionally the backup and restores of virtualized system content can be fraught with complexity.
"In virtualized system environments, BRU Server's advanced architecture simply treats the host and guest systems as networked client systems," said Tim Jones, president and CTO of TOLIS Group. "Both file by file and disaster recovery compatible image backup and restore of guest systems are supported using normal BRU Server operations - no special treatment is needed. BRU Server and Parallels work together seamlessly."
"Parallels is excited to have BRU Server as one of the first applications certified with Parallels Server for Mac," said Bryan Goode, Director of Business Development, Parallels. "As customers increasingly require reliable and tested backup and restore software we are pleased to see a company like TOLIS join our Certification Program."
BRU Server's agents provide full backup support for all guest systems including: x86 Windows, Solaris, Open and FreeBSD, Linux, and Mac OS X. Additionally, TOLIS Group's OFM module allows the proper management of open file environments such as Exchange, FileMaker and Active Directory running on Windows virtualized machines.
