Portlock Storage Manager is designed to minimize the
management, setup, installation, and reconfiguration time for Novell NetWare
3.12 - 6.5 servers. Copy, create, clone, image, restore, and resize DOS,
NetWare and NSS partitions and volumes. Image and restore Windows FAT32 and NTFS
partitions. Disaster recovery of failed
servers is very fast and dramatically simplified - no booting OS required.
Supports bare-metal restores from disk files, tape drives,
CD/DVDs, FTP and Web Servers. No other disaster recovery product offers such a
breadth of features.
Portlock Storage Manager can completely backup or image a
server including all DOS partitions, NetWare Traditional and NSS volumes,
Windows FAT32 and NTFS partitions, and all system diagnostic partitions. Portlock Storage Manager supports
very fast system recovery and server duplication. When a disaster strikes, a complete
system can be restored from tape, CD / DVD or an FTP server. Nothing needs to be installed on the server to
begin a system recovery.
Key Features of
Bare-Metal Disaster Recovery:

reboot and the server is running exactly the same as the last image.
Does not Require OS Installation:
Operating system is restored automatically as part of the recovery process.
Disaster Recovery: Image
and Restore features provide a complete recovery including all user information,
files, permissions, trustees, name spaces, etc.
High-speed Image and Restore:
Image and Restore exceeding 40 GB per hour with high-performance tape drives.
Across the Wire Recovery:
Servers can be restored using TCP/IP with images stored on NetWare or Windows
Supports Restores to New Hardware:
Restore to the same or new hardware. Supports reconfiguring the operating system
to support different hardware and storage controllers.
DVD Media: DVDs can be a
very effective storage medium for backups and disaster recovery. DVD media is
inexpensive, offers 2.5 MB/sec write speeds, 5.0 MB/sec read speeds and a life
of 30-100 years.
In a forthcoming release of Portlock Storage Manager, the

has a great set of NetWare management tools with an advantage of not only
supporting traditional file systems, but also supporting NSS file systems,
so you can have multiple images of servers and deploy them."
