Take a snapshot, it’ll last longer
Symantec Corp.‘s LiveState Recovery family of products – its disk-based system and data recovery solutions – will capture a point-in-time operating state, or LiveState, of an entire server or desktop, which includes the operating system, applications, data and settings into one easy-to-manage file. These point-in-time snapshots are created without interrupting user productivity or application usage. Users can then perform a full system restoration, a complete bare metal recovery or retrieve individual files or folders in minutes. It usually takes hours to manually rebuild servers and workstations and restore data from conventional tape backup.
Three editions of Symantec LiveState Recovery (formerly Symantec V2i Protector) are available: Symantec LiveState Recovery Advanced Server 3.0, Symantec LiveState Recovery Standard Server 3.0, and Symantec LiveState Recovery Desktop 3.0.

Canon device a communications hub
The Color imageRUNNER C3220 networked digital multifunction device and colour document management system feature Canon‘s multifunctional embedded application platform (MEAP) development architecture, a Java-based platform for which embedded applications can be specifically written.
