FarStone has been a partner with Intel since 2002 and participates in various initiatives with Intel’s Software Partner Program (SPP), formerly named the Early Access Program (EAP).

Intel bundles RestoreIT, VirtualDrive, and GameDrive with its Extreme, Media, Executive, Classic, and Essential Series desktop motherboards using the Intel P965 and 975X Express Chipsets.

Intel partners

Prior the 64-bit, Vista-compatible bundle of FarStone products, Intel bundled FarStone RestoreIT with its 945 and 955 Express Chipset motherboards as well.

FarStone developed GameDrive MC specifically for Intel to ship with its Media Series motherboards that support Intel Viiv technology and Microsoft Windows Media Center for the digital home.

The FarStone products add value to the Intel motherboards, and RestoreIT in particular offers the following benefits:

  • Comprehensive data disaster recovery that complements existing consumer, small business, and enterprise data backup solutions
  • User-level control over data backup and system recovery
  • Reduced IT costs and system downtime, in that it empowers customers to “undo” many system problems on their own

“RestoreIT... is an excellent product that can protect our customers’ systems and help reduce their support costs.”
— Joel Christensen, Intel Desktop Platform Solutions Division

The Latest Intel Initiative

Intel Viiv and vPro

FarStone’s RestoreIT technology is vPro certified and can be integrated with Intel’s iAMT network solutions for business. For example, RestoreIT/DriveClone Network adds remote backup and recovery to Intel Active Management Technology’s (AMT) remote management piece.

This combined solution can monitor the status of all network-connected vPro client PCs and servers, manage inventory, and display any alarm conditions, and because of the integrated FarStone application, also allow tech support to remotely restore any systems that have failed due to software-related problems.
