Puzzled By Mysterious System Behavior?
How often have you been puzzled by mysterious behavior of your critical
servers or desktops? It's almost always an issue of finding out what
changed, as the system used to be running fine before. Tracking changes
to files and the registry is made easy with WhatChanged for Windows.
The information provided by this useful tool can help you resolve these
pesky time consuming system problem headaches.
The program works efficiently in the background to capture snapshots
of machine state for later comparison. Impact on system performance and
disk space consumption is kept at a minimum. The Enterprise Edition
scales to hundreds of machines and provides a central console for Change
Management. The vendor claims it can have significant impact on Total
Cost of Ownership, but personally I think that is just ammo for the higher-
ups. This tool will cut down bigtime on your own trouble-shooting.

UltraBac Software Launches UltraBac 6.3
UltraBac Software today announced the shipment of UltraBac 6.3 Backup
and Disaster Recovery software for NT/2000 servers and workstations.
New features include Windows XP support, Network Disaster Recovery
(UBDR), and integrated disk Flashing technology for rapid cloning
and setup of servers and workstations.
UltraBac Software has a reputation for being first to market with key
features customers want. V6.3 is the first to offer Network Disaster
Recovery from a single boot floppy, integrated disk Flashing technology
and Windows XP support.
UBDR allows a user to boot a machine and restore an image of a partition
that was previously backed up by simply booting from a DOS-based floppy
and running the new program. With UBDR, users can restore failed machines
from either a local tape drive or disk path (local/CD/remote) to perform
a fast and simple network recovery in a matter of minutes.
Support for Windows XP and the most popular versions of Unix and Linux
operating systems are now available with this release of UltraBac as
well, making the software more compatible than ever with today's diverse
Optional Flashing technology has also been incorporated into UltraBac
6.3. "Flashing" an image of a disk, storing it to media, then replicating
it to another disk, is the process that the software uses to enable rapid
cloning and setup of servers and workstations.
"With UBDR, integrated Flashing technology, and Windows XP support, we
continue to be first to market with real features that companies are
looking for in a complete backup and recovery solution," said Paul Bunn,
CTO of UltraBac Software. "These new features, combined with the simple,
yet rock solid backup and recovery that UltraBac is known for, will
continue our leadership in the market." 30-day eval at:
