The launch of Tranzman will remove some of the expense and skills-drain of migrating to a new backup solution. Tranzman automates the migration and acts as a storage server so you can access backed-up data by converting its format when you restore or duplicate it.

“Tranzman should reduce the cost and the list of things you need to contemplate a backup migration. It’ll be more affordable and will therefore give organisations the mobility they need to move on to new and more efficient backup technology when they want to, rather than when they’re forced to,” said Simon Brown, founder of Stone Ram, who has been leading Tranzman’s development.
