The Challenge

The inherent value and rapid growth of virtualized mission critical applications and associated data has resulted in virtualization becoming business critical. While keeping virtualized business service availability high, organizations are looking for better ways to improve efficiency, reduce their exposure to unplanned downtime, and maintain high availability— all while keeping VM disaster recovery and business continuity simple and within a limited IT budget.

  Key Features

Fast, Simple and Reliable protections for VMware virtualized data, 
applications and business services including:

Fast and more efficient replication and backup with support for:

  • Direct backup to Amazon Cloud
  • Data deduplication
  • Quick installation, job creation and execution within minutes, even by the newest IT administrator.
  • Near real-time continuous data protection(CDP) to meet recovery point objectives(RPOs) of five minutes, and to meet aggressive recovery time objectives (RTOs)
  • Change Block Tracking (CBT) for transferring only incremental changes to enable greater efficiencies of storage space and less data transfer over WAN links.
  • Direct backup and replication source access to storage area network (SAN) storage, without impacting production ESX or ESXi hosts.
  • Compression for greater throughput and faster transmission across WAN links.

Simple and easy to use for accessibility from anywhere at any time, including the browser of an iPad.

Reliable backups and replicas with support for:

  • Live Windows based applications including Oracle, Exchange, Active Directory and MS SQL with Volume Shadow copy Service (VSS).
  • Up to 99 recent recovery points enabling fast recovery from virus attacks and accidentally deleted files, with user defined recovery points
  • Automatic retries of failed backup or replication jobs, to better utilize faulty WAN links.
  • Job scheduling and VM prioritization, to mitigate possible human errors
  • Encryption for more secure data transfers to remote recovery sites.
  • Low bandwidth or high packet loss WAN links that are often found between the small business and their backup co-location facility.
