Scottsdale, Arizona USA, 9 November 2005 -- Lockstep Systems, Inc. today announced that Backup for Workgroups is the main topic in the new book Backup 2 Disk Now! Author William T. Lolli, MCSE, CSN writes about the benefits of using a disk-based data backup methodology and provides compelling reasons for implementing a backup strategy centered on Backup for Workgroups.

"After years of implementing tape solutions that were expensive and unreliable, I found the perfect disk-based backup alternative to offer my SMB clients," Mr. Lolli said in an interview with Lockstep Systems, Inc. "My clients' networks range in size from 5-users to 500-users.  I found in the Backup for Workgroups product line an easy-to-maintain, easy-to-deploy, highly scalable backup solution.  In writing the book, I simply took the successful deployment experiences of my clients and documented some of the ways Backup for Workgroups can be scaled."

"In Backup 2 Disk Now! Mr. Lolli does an excellent job of describing the overall advantages of implementing a disk-based backup solution over a traditional tape-based solution," states Karl Forster, President of Lockstep Systems, Inc.  "We are pleased that Mr. Lolli recommends our Backup for Workgroups product as the ideal disk-based backup software.  The examples and scenarios used in this book are excellent at shattering the myth that data backup has to be expensive, elaborate and time-consuming.  Using hard drives along with our flexible disk-based backup product is the solution for large and small companies alike."
