Ontrack Data Recovery signs licensing agreement with leading resellers for its Powercontrols™ software

Programmer’s paradise and Revinetix to offer Ontrack’s industry-leading mailbox recovery software

MINNEAPOLIS – Nov. 29, 2005 – Ontrack Data Recovery™, the industry’s leading data recovery provider, today announced Programmer’s Paradise and Revinetix, both leading resellers, will be offering Ontrack® PowerControls™ Mailbox Recovery Software to their roster of professional and small business customers, thus giving them an easy, time-saving solution for their Exchange Server mailbox recovery needs. PowerControls, an industry-leading mailbox recovery software tool that restores individual mailboxes, messages, folders, attachments and other elements from existing backup Microsoft Exchange Server database (.EDB) files, eliminates the need for brick-level backups.

“As a leading reseller focused on supporting technology professionals, Programmer’s Paradise is pleased to add PowerControls software to our wide range of technical and general business application software,” said Jeff Largiader, vice president - Sales & Marketing for Programmer’s Paradise. “Ontrack’s products offer our customers solid recovery options that can save them time and money.”

PowerControls, which earned “Verified for Microsoft Windows XP” status through independent testing, is used by IT professionals to quickly and easily search, copy and restore message-level or individual mailbox items from any previous full backup, un-mounted databases (.edb) and Information Store files. Requiring no changes to the existing Exchange server or backup architecture, PowerControls slashes restore time, eliminates brick-level back-ups, minimizes the time it takes to locate all emails matching specific criteria using advanced searching capabilities, and eliminates the need for an Exchange recovery server.

“With the help of PowerControls, Revinetix further demonstrates our commitment to small and medium businesses, by offering a robust, yet easy-to-use solution for brick-level recovery of essential business data,” said Revinetix VP of Sales Brian Clark. “PowerControls software enables us to offer our customers a more complete turnkey backup solution, permitting users to now confidently backup and restore Exchange messaging quickly from our Disk2Disk (D2D)-based backup appliances.”

Ontrack recently released PowerControls™ 4.0 software, the newest version of its widely used mailbox recovery tool. This upgraded version helps Microsoft® Exchange administrators save time and deliver better recovery performance with more powerful searching and reporting capabilities, and expanded backup format support for CommVault® Galaxy™ and UltraBac Software.
