CloneThat provides simple setup of tasks for cloning data across any number of drives within a single box or across a network, improving data survability in the event of a disaster. Its Microsoft-ish user interface is ideal for IT professionals to quickly pick up and efficiently use.
It was designed with businesses in mind, but can also be used for personal use at home. It was built to deliver features not found in the competition.
In fact, it was designed and developed by a senior level software engineer who was specifically searching for a low cost backup solution at his employment for their business needs. Not being able to find one with the specific features he felt were necessary for an adequate backup tool, he went to work on building the solution he needed himself. The first phase of this effort resulted in CloneThat.
Additionally, CloneThat 1.0 license owners will be able to get free upgrades to the next generation, CloneThat 2.0, due out Q3 2006, which will fully realize all of the features originally intended by the designer. So your investment into CloneThat 1.0 will never be lost.
