TECHNOLOGIES | Data Format & Representation

Since one of the primary goals of the Titan Data Vault technology was to backup a variety of system architectures, a standard method had to be developed to store and represent data in a format that could be restored on another system with all security, alternate data streams, and file system attributes intact. This standard, SIDF (System Independent Data Format), was adopted by Titan Data Vault and serves as the primary method by which to store data from a variety of operating systems on a single Titan Data Vault server. Titan Data Vault is on the SIDF committee which has representation from Novell, Cheyenne, Legato, Seagate and others in the mid-range backup world.
