    SHADOWSAFE is a managed backup and disaster
    recovery solution that provides everything you need
    for total backup AND disaster recovery (BDR)
    coverage for all your servers and critical
    workstations.

                           Backup and Disaster Recovery are Different

    Backups are required for different points-in-time
    Backups allow you to recover individual files/folders
    (normally not great for an entire system or volume)
    Backups are primarily used for data files because
    applications are difficult to restore from backups
    Disaster recovery solutions should allow you to
    recover entire systems or volumes quickly
    Disaster Recovery absolutely requires secure offsite
    storage (or you will NOT survive a true disaster)
    A complete Backup and Disaster Recovery system is
    one that provides you with point-in-time backups
    AND disaster recovery as a single application

    It is no longer necessary to cobble together a
    Backup solution and a Disaster Recovery solution
    from three/four different vendors (one for backup,
    one for disaster recovery, one for virtual machines,
    and one for offsite storage)
    SHADOWSAFE provides backup and disaster recovery
    as a bundled service:
      – Point-in-time incremental backups are done (one or more
        times per day) and a local and remote copy is maintained
      – These incremental images are securely uploaded to your
        VITALESAFE account (in the background and unattended)
      – One solution to all your BDR needs means less training for
        your IT staff and reduces the chance of errors and increases
        confidence in your solution

                                                                             6
                                                      SHADOWSAFE – How it works

                                 Volumes are backed up as images
                                 (collections of blocks) not on a file-by-
                                 file basis
                                 Never worry about excluding or
                                 missing files/folders by accident
                                 Backup images can be mounted as
                                 virtual drives allowing individual
                                 files/folders to be recovered quickly
                                 (with copy/paste)
                                 Entire volumes/systems can be
                                 restored in minutes (from local copy)

                                                      SHADOWSAFE – How it works

                            The SHADOWSAFE service includes every-
                            thing you need (software, hardware and
                            our online service) in your startup kit.
                            Initial full backup is returned (via
                            external drive) to VITALESAFE for loading
                            Incrementals are uploaded to VITALESAFE
                            via the Internet
                            Full backups are refreshed periodically
                            In the event of a disaster VITALESAFE will
                            ship all full + incrementals to user on a
                            external drive
                            Normal recovery is done via local storage

                                      SHADOWSAFE – If Your Time Matters

                            Fact: there are a number of solutions that
                            can make an offsite backup copy of your
                            data (unbelievably some “solutions” could
    Recovery
                            take weeks to complete your initial
                            backup and weeks to do a full restore!).
                            What makes SHADOWSAFE “different” is
                            how fast you can get systems “up and
  VirtualBoot               running/restored” (VirtualBoot, Hardware
                            Independent Restore, rapidRestore)
                            SHADOWSAFE minimizes the time/effort
                            required to get a server/workstation back
 rapidRestore               up and running

                                      SHADOWSAFE – If Your Time Matters
                                                                  continued


                            We have seen “competitive” solutions
                            require you to have a working Windows
                            Server installation (complete with all your
    Recovery                applications re-installed) before you can
                            restore your data!
                            Question: How long would it take (and
                            how much would that cost) to meet that
  VirtualBoot               requirement?
                            Question: In the event of a catastrophic
                            failure (fire, flood, theft, etc.) how many
                            customers are going to be able to locate
 rapidRestore               their “applications” CD-ROMS so that
                            they can be reloaded? How much
                            downtime will that require?

                            Connect a machine that has Sun

                            Browse to a backup (normally the last
                            one) on the external hard drive
  VirtualBoot               Right click and choose VirtualBoot
                            Answer a few questions for VirtualBox
                            Backup image will boot as a virtual
                            machine and you are up and running in
                            less than 5 minutes (now go fix server)

                            directly from the most recent backup of
                            the machine and in minutes
