BakBone Software Acquires Constant Data

    Online News published in DMReview.com
November 17, 2005

BakBone Software, a global provider of data protection software, announced that it has completed the acquisition of privately-held Constant Data, Inc. of Hopkins, Minnesota. The acquisition marks BakBone's entry into the data replication and high availability software market and is the first major step in BakBone's execution of its recently announced Integrated Data Protection (IDP) strategy for optimizing data protection functionality.

IDP is designed to provide a suite of highly integrated data protection solutions that enables end users to cost-effectively manage data protection and achieve higher levels of data availability. Constant Data's cross-platform replication technology complements the heterogeneous platform support currently delivered in BakBone's NetVault backup and disaster recovery technologies and offers users a holistic approach to managing enterprise data protection.

Constant Data's flagship product, Constant Replicator, automatically maintains file and data synchronization from anywhere-to-anywhere ensuring full-time data availability. It is an ideal choice for off-site data mirroring providing immediate recovery and business continuity, guaranteed digital content distribution, wide area clustering, and data consolidation from remote offices through unlimited scalability. Constant Replicator can be installed seamlessly into existing heterogeneous storage environments by providing continuous data protection to existing servers thus protecting previous investments.

With support for a broad set of operating platforms including Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX and Mac OS X, Constant Data's continuous real-time data replication software solutions provide users with true bi-directional replication, one-to-many replication for enterprise data distribution, and many-to-one replication for centralized data protection for distributed environments. The software also allows users to break the environmental limitations found in many other replication solutions that require identical environments at both source and destination sites.

BakBone acquired Constant Data for approximately US$5.0 million in cash and limited contingent payments. The agreement also provides for assumption of certain assets and liabilities resulting in a total current transaction value of approximately US$5.5 million. The transaction was completed on Tuesday, November 15, 2005 . Constant Data will continue to operate in Hopkins, Minnesota.
