Efficiently manage your backup and DR storage costs by keeping the most recent or important backups on the local appliance, with the rest archived to the cloud. Local and replication retention policies are managed separately, allowing more effective use of your local and offsite appliance storage allocation.
Failover to the Cloud
For Windows and Linux machines, Administrators can right-click backups and choose any version of a machine’s backup to be booted and run directly in the cloud, with RDP access to help businesses minimize downtime.
Hyper-V & VMware Agentless Backup & DR
The DR cloud supports an agentless approach to backing up and recovering VMware and Hyper-V environments. Backup physical machines and recover them to existing hypervisors or recover VMs as physical machines (P2V and V2P recovery support). Set policies to automatically protect newly created VMs to save additional time, money, and reduce risk of downtime due to human error.
Local Disaster Recovery
Windows and Linux systems that have been backed up onto an on-premises appliance can be run directly on the appliance by simply right-clicking a backup and selecting “boot.” In a matter of minutes, administrators will have VNC access to a live running machine. Once ready, the machine(s) can be powered off, backed up and recovered to production environments, including recovery to an existing vSphere environment.
Central Deployment and Management
Appliance backup settings and schedules as well as recoveries can be accessed over the WAN from a central management console or limited to LAN/VPN access for environments requiring greater security.
Deployable on Your Own Hardware
DRaaS is available as a VMware and Hyper-V Virtual machine. The VMware appliance supports all of the software functionality of the physical appliances, the Hyper-V appliance supports all of the functionality except for local boot. The VMware appliance is appropriate for those users who wish to offer DRaaS services to their clients while using their own VMware-based data center infrastructure.
Full and Granular Recovery
Utilizing universal VSS writer support, DRaaS platform is capable of backing up databases like SQL, SAP and Exchange with additional support for mailbox level recovery of Exchange databases and file-level recovery for your backups of Windows and Linux machines.
Data Recovery for Linux
If you’re running Linux VMs within your VMware environment, you can failover locally or to the cloud. This DR functionality is supported for the latest Red Hat, SUSE, Ubuntu, CentOS, Debian, Oracle and Fedora Linux Server OSs. Standalone Linux machines can be protected with our Linux agents.
Secure Offsite Replication
On-premises appliances replicate backups to the cloud or to a secondary appliance using byte-level replication for maximum efficiency. The replication is secured with an AES-256 encryption to protect data against unauthorized access during data transfer.
