Integrates backup and archive with single
data repository to ensure optimized protection and recovery for all
CONCORD, MA, UNITED STATES - Feb 27, 2014 - BridgeHead Software,
a leader in healthcare
data management, today announced BridgeHead RAPid™ (Rapid
Application Protection), which facilitates the use of multiple
protection strategies in a single seamless HDM solution to ensure
optimized protection and recovery of hospital applications.
BridgeHead RAPid integrates both backup and archive with a central
repository for meta data, business and clinical data as well as
healthcare-specific application awareness to ensure that hospitals
can quickly bring back large amounts of data.
Leveraging BridgeHead BLAST
(Backup Leveraging Advanced Storage Technology), BridgeHead RAPid
enables hospitals to restore an application's complete underlying
database and then enough of its file data to quickly get the
application back up and running. To streamline the data protection
process, RAPid deploys both Single Instancing for archive on the
file level and deduplications for backup on the block level.
BridgeHead RAPid promises to help hospitals:
- Optimize RPO and RTO for 99.9% of their applications and
- Reduce storage and network requirements with Single Instancing
for reduction of application objects combined with deduplication
for reduction of backup data,
- Provide a better platform for recovery, both in terms of speed,
ease of use and reduced data loss.
"The BridgeHead RAPid approach
combines the company's deep knowledge of healthcare applications
with a unified backup and archiving offering for data protection
that is ideal for hospitals," said Joe Martins, Data Mobility
Group. "Because RAPid takes two angles on data reduction - Single
Instancing with archive, and deduplication with backup -- no matter
what type of healthcare data is being managed, hospitals get an
optimized data footprint which is faster, easier and less expensive
to manage. Because of the unique approach of combining optimized
protection, the BridgeHead RAPid approach can cover 99.9% of the
types of data that a hospital has to manage."
"Many INHS customers want to
ensure that generational copies have a separate physical location
in a non-risk area. The BridgeHead RAPid approach, with its dual
data reduction technologies, eliminates the bottlenecks inherent in
moving data to and from the Cloud," said Chad Skidmore, director,
INHS. "BridgeHead RAPid has enabled INHS to deliver
healthcare-aware disaster recovery strategies for hospitals that
combines existing storage resources with the vastly scalable and
"Built on BridgeHead's HDM
Platform, Rapid Application Protection is an approach designed for
hospitals to ensure optimized protection and recovery for any
application," said Tony Cotterill, Chief Product Officer at
BridgeHead Software. "RAPid ensures customers get optimum
protection of their data as it allows a mix of backup strategies
unlike any other data protection solution."
