Several vendors are advancing continuous data protection, or CDP, the latest technique for backing up storage to reduce the risk of data loss.

FalconStor, Kaysha and Mendocino Software launched some new CDP tools and partnerships during this week's Storage Networking World conference in San Diego. Proponents of CDP say it is a viable method of assuring continuous availability, particularly of mission-critical applications, because it employs an approach to backing up systems in real time by providing numerous recovery points, minimizing the chance for

Storage users, always a vocal lot, are really having their say with CDP, re-shaping this emerging technology into something that looks far different -- and is more useful -- than what it was a year ago.

Customers want continuous data protection (CDP) to do more than handle post-failure rollback to a specific point in time. They want direct CDP links to SANs instead of host computers, multisite support, and more granular recovery for specific applications. These changes are forcing CDP vendors to work
