Storix is a Gold level member in Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).

“In 2011, we were excited to announce support for Oracle Solaris 11 Express and looked forward to making another special announcement surrounding the much anticipated release of Oracle Solaris 11,” said David Huffman, President of Storix, Inc. “We realized early-on that there could be a unique opportunity for Storix to be among the first to offer a system recovery solution for Oracle Solaris 11and to offer the capabilities of Adaptable System Recovery. From a hardware perspective, customers can use SBAdmin to migrate Oracle Solaris-based SPARC T-series systems to Oracle’s newer SPARC T4 hardware with ease.”

About SBAdmin
SBAdmin provides Adaptable System Recovery (ASR), the ability to rebuild AIX, Oracle Solaris, or Linux systems from bare-metal, giving customers the flexibility to alter the configuration as needed to fit onto any hardware or virtual configuration. ASR adapts a backup to the hardware detected during installation, rebuilding the new system to the same state as the prior system. The complete restore from bare-metal can be managed locally or remotely and can take just minutes.

The power and flexibility of ASR greatly reduces downtime during disasters or planned outages, exceeding the user’s RTO. SBAdmin can also be used for provisioning/cloning of multiples systems and software storage alteration for improved system availability, recoverability and performance.

SBAdmin is available for Linux, AIX and Oracle Solaris. Hardware support includes all Intel 32-bit and 64-bit, IBM Power, Oracle SPARC.

SBAdmin v7.2 is available for free 30-day trial at:
