Seagate, a leading supplier of storage solutions, has announced today the introduction of a new backup appliance that is said to be capable of replacing the need to manually manage the backup process of personal digital content. Dubbed Seagate Replica, the new software application from the Scotts Valley, California-based storage vendor, is designed to easily and continuously back up the user's installed applications, operating system, e-mails, media files, Internet bookmarks and settings.
Replica is available in two configurations, according to Seagate, and is said to be a reliable solution for either a single PC or a network of computer systems.
“While people continue to amass digital content, many still don’t understand the importance of backing up their libraries of personal memories, or they don’t take the time,” says Terry Cunningham, senior vice president, Seagate Branded Solutions. “Our goal is to deliver solutions that provide thorough backup protection yet are easy to use, time-efficient and simple to understand, and the Seagate Replica is about as easy as it gets.”
Protecting and backing up the digital content and data on a user's PC can sometimes be a real time-consuming task, especially if the respective user has no access to a reliable solution. This is where the Seagate Replica comes into place, as it is meant to become an alternative for backing up almost every source of data on an everyday PC. In addition, the software is designed to provide an optimum and easy backup solution for those users who aren't accustomed with working with the PC and backing up their data.
The solution is meant to run in the back of the operating system and allow the end-user to continue his work on the PC. In addition, granted it's being left connected to the PC, the Seagate Replica continues to back up the system.
As far as pricing and availability are concerned, the Replica is designed for both single use and multi-PC use, two licenses that start at an MSRP of US$129.99 and US$199.99.
