BRU Server enables network admins to configure server backups how they want — it supports direct backup to tape, or it can be staged in a centralized disk farm. BRU Server is available in configurations ranging from two client licenses to 250 or more.
BRU Server supports full native backup and restore for Apple’s Xsan, ADIC’s StorNext and other distributed file systems.
The new 1.2 version features a totally new interface defined by BRU’s Mac users. A simplified method is used for backing up client/server systems, and live database backup is now supported for Windows clients on the network. Also new in this release is the ability to recover from read errors during a restore, when other tools abort.
Live database backup from Windows client systems is enabled thanks to the inclusion of File Access Manager (FAM) technology from VisionWorks Solutions, according to Tolis.

A free 30-day trial demo is available for download. System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3 or later, G3/500MHz or faster, 256MB RAM.
