Today I went to Acronis Seminar as they are launching the new product Acronis Recovery for Microsoft Exchange with my colleague Lun. There is not much crowd as this is for resellers and the presenter was giving an impressive talk.

Arconis really have put a lot of effort to create such a great software that can save us a lot of time in doing DR and it able to help on the Exchange migration or upgrade version. It can backup exchange database or mailboxes and restoring can be done by mailboxes, databases and emails.

The GUI are really simple to use, just need to do few click and it works like champ. I certainly would recommend to customer if they are using Exchange and Acronis True Image that can restore back Windows Server in just 40 second from bare-metal.

Can you imagine that you can restore your Active Directory server in just 40 second back to your original state where it before it crash and you are able to remote restore the crash servers. Another beauty of the True Image that you are able to change hardware without transfering your data and resetup your preferences desktop setting, as True Image are able to migrate over to new hardware without reinstall your windows. This is another great area from Acronis.

At the end of the seminar there were a lucky draw, giving out 3 copies of Acronis True Image and 1 copies of Acronis Disk Director Suite 10. I was lucky enough for today and I get myself the grand price that is 1 copies of True Image and the Disk Director Suite 10.

Thanks to Acronis APAC and J.O.S (Jardine One Solutions) on the event and gifts.

Friday 1 August 2008 – This is a cool stuff and very useful in shopping center, airport and warehouse as this can really save your tired leg for the day. Con about it is people will getting lazier as you no need to walk much and it need to consume electricity.

Prepare to step aside Segway, you had your chance to revolutionize personal transportation. Introducing the Toyota Winglet. Still under development, Winglet’s body has a 10.4 x 18-inch footprint and stands 1.5-, 2.2-, or 3.7-feet tall (depending upon the S, M, or L model chosen) and features an electric motor capable of a max 6km/h cruising speed for up to 10km a jaunt (only 5km for the S model). Like the Segway, the user controls the Winglet by shifting his weight to move the transporter forward and back or to make tight turns. Winglet will begin consumer testing at the Central Japan International Airport near Nagoya and Laguna Gamagori resort this Autumn with further testing in more crowded environments planned for 2009. It’s planned to hit a production stride in 2010.
