What’s ActiveImage Protector™ ?

Whether you’re using a Windows or Linux based system on a  physical or virtual machine, Hyper-V or VMware, Actiphy’s ActiveImage Protector™ is the only solution needed to protect those systems.

  • Image based backup

    Image based backup

    ActiveImage Protector™ backs up your entire machine, including the OS, settings, data files and applications, and access rights into a single image file. When disaster strikes, select a backup image to quickly restore for a fast and complete recovery.

  • Support for Cluster Environments

    Support for Cluster Environments

    ActiveImage Protector™ Cluster Edition  supports cluster environments such as Windows Server Failover Clustering. Even when failover from the backup node to the other node takes place, incremental backup chains of Clustered Shared Volume File System (CSVFS) volumes can be continued on the other node. The clustered volumes, including the system volume (mirrored volume), can be booted up without difficulty upon restoration. Quorum configuration in a clustered environment can be obtained and restored.

  • Faster and smaller backup with Smart Sector™ technology

    Faster and smaller backup with Smart Sector™ technology

    ActiveImage Protector™’s Smart Sector™ technology only backs up the used sectors on a disk, resulting in faster backup and smaller backup files.

  • Fast Incremental Backup

    Fast Incremental Backup

    ActiveImage Protector™ includes a self developed change tracking driver that enables us to track the changes that occur on a volume incremental backups. Fast and efficient incremental backup includes only sectors that have changed from the last backuping saving you both process time and storage space. 

  • Incremental backup of CSVFS volumes

    Incremental backup of CSVFS volumes

    Cluster Shared Volume File System (CSVFS) volumes can be backed up incrementally by using the wizard for “CSV backup”. Even when failover from the backup node to the other node takes place, CBC technology maintains incremental backup continuity of CSVFS volumes on the other node.

  • CBC (Changed Block Comparison™) Technology

    CBC (Changed Block Comparison™) Technology

    Actiphy’s proprietary Changed Block Comparison™ (CBC) technology comprehensively analyzes a volume’s file system and identifies changed blocks that need to be backed up.

  • Save storage space with IDDC

    Save storage space with IDDC

    Our Inline Data Deduplication Compression (IDDC) feature eliminates duplicate data while simultaneously compressing it, resulting in a significant reduction in backup storage requirements. An included advanced option, IDDC has no impact on backup processing time. No additional deduplication hardware or software purchase is necessary.

  • Flexible scheduling

    Flexible scheduling

    Schedule a backup to execute on a schedule that meets your needs. Flexible multi triggered scheduling lets you create full and incremental backups on specific days, daily, weekly, monthly or specific days or week in a month. In addition, with the included retention policy you can specify a predefined number of image sets to keep in order to reduce storage footprint. Our smart feature USB Smart Detect will detect if you have disconnected a USB drive and will resume backups one a USB drive has been reconnected.

  • Windows PE and Linux based Recovery Environment

    Windows PE and Linux based Recovery Environment

    Perform faster disaster recovery and cold back-ups with ActiveImage Protector’s™ Windows PE and Linux based boot environments (AIPBE). The Windows PE based boot environment builder utilizes Microsoft ADK or AIK, and Linux CentOS. 

  • Access image files via iSCSI

    Access image files via iSCSI

    ActiveImage Protector™ utilizes iSCSI to serve backup iSCSI targets to any local or remote iSCSI initiator for mounting backup images as local disks; not only providing a method to recover files and folders from a backup, but provides immediate booting of a backup image attached to a virtual machine. Additionally, using VMware vMotion streamlines the recovery process by migrating live virtual machines booted from the iSCSI disk to a hypervisor in a production environment.

  • Cluster Environment License

    Cluster Environment License

    The Cluster Edition includes the same features as found in ActiveImage Protector™ Server Edition but for Clustered Environments. The Cluster Environment License is offered as a more practical licensing solution when you are using a clustered environment.
