    Arrow Announcing 'pipe' - a Sybase backupserver plugin

    With this plugin the destination of your Sybase dump no longer has to be a named
    file. It can now also be the stdin of an arbitrary command or a port on any
    host on your network.

    Similarly, an existing dump can be LOADed from the stdout of a command or from a port on any host.

    Why would you want that? A number of possibilities open up:

    * offload the CPU-intensive compression by running the
    compression utility on another machine;
    * archive dumps on another host without NFS issues;
    * integrate with an off-site backup provider;
    * encrypt dumps without unencrypted data ever touching
    temporary storage;
    * transfer databases from one server to another /directly/;
    * use the included "sybdump" utility (open sourced) in your
    own scripts, processing dumps without waiting for them
    to finish...

    FREE for qualified individuals:

    Today's price is only $9.99 per server, set to *double every week* until
    $159.84 or even $319.68 -- as our confidence grows and wrinkles in the
    ordering system and documentation get ironed out. Order yours now at:

    Follow up with questions/comments. Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
