AutoVirt v3.6 Features Key Error Handling, Reporting, Intelligent Data Engine Placement and Migration Validation Enhancements Intended to Enable Faster and Easier Data Migrations

NASHUA, N.H., June 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AutoVirt, Inc.(TM) today announced two strategic developments intended to advance the company's standing as the leading provider of data migration and global namespace software. The first is the general availability of version 3.6 (v3.6) of its award winning AutoVirt software, featuring key enhancements that will enable its strategic channel partners and end users to plan and execute data migrations more quickly and easily than ever before.

AutoVirt v3.6 Enhancements include:

  • Error Handling - Virtually all data migrations encounter errors which can dramatically stall, if not completely halt, the migration. AutoVirt v3.6 improves the process of error identification and resolution. After identifying all errors, AutoVirt retries the migration on only those files which encountered errors. This targeted method of managing errors saves significant time over the course of the migration.
  • Reporting - AutoVirt v3.6 provides the ability to drill-down further into specific migration events and an improved graphical user interface (GUI) dashboard that features real-time migration status reporting and notifications.
  • Intelligent Data Engine Placement - AutoVirt v3.6 can be deployed locally or remotely (i.e., on migration sources and/or destinations) providing the ability to virtually eliminate network impact during data migrations.
  • Migration Validation - AutoVirt v3.6 provides the ability to quickly and accurately confirm consistency between migration source and destination.

"In spite of all the data center virtualization efforts that seek to create a unified storage management framework, NAS environments in most companies continue to be fragmented and poorly utilized. AutoVirt solves these challenges by allowing IT administrators to non-disruptively move data between frames while creating a unified namespace. These capabilities are further enhanced in v3.6 with improved error handling and intelligent data engine placement," said Ashish Nadkarni, Senior Analyst and Consultant, Taneja Group.

In addition to releasing v3.6, AutoVirt has appointed Caesar Naples to the position of Vice President of Engineering.

"I'm very excited to be joining the AutoVirt team. AutoVirt's global namespace is an incredibly powerful remedy to a major source of pain for IT administrators today. Their out-of-band approach provides a non-intrusive, scalable, cost-effective solution. That, coupled with state-of-the-art data mobility tools, will allow AutoVirt to redefine data management," said Caesar Naples, Vice President of Engineering, AutoVirt. "Additionally the feature enhancements in AutoVirt v3.6 echo this philosophy and are the direct result of strategic channel partner and end user feedback. AutoVirt v3.6 will help enable our customers to complete their business critical data center initiatives, as well as finally be able to address those 'back-burner' projects."
