What is 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.

  • Block based backup

    Block 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.

  • Recover files and folders in seconds

    Recover files and folders in seconds

    There is no need to restore the entire system to recover files and folders. Use the file recovery wizard for granular access to files and folders and quickly recovers what you need including access privileges.

  • 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.

  • 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. As CBC is an installed program rather than a filter driver, incremental backups of CSVFS (cluster shared volume file system) in addition to NTFS volumes, are supported. A system restart is not required upon the installation or update of the program. CSVFS incremental backup chains can be continued even if the primary or control node fails or changes.

  • 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.

  • Fast incremental backups

    Fast incremental backups

    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. 

  • 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 pre-defined 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 environments

    Windows PE and Linux based recovery environments

    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. 

  • Boot backup images instantly using HyperBoot™

    Boot backup images instantly using HyperBoot™

    Using NetJapan’s real-time virtual conversion technology, HyperBoot bypasses the lengthy, resource intensive, and cumbersome physical to virtual conversion process, and boots the backup as a virtual machine in minimal time. Changes made while running the virtual machine from a backup are saved as differential files. A proverbial “Spare Wheel” for recovery, migration testing, repair, or upgrading prior to actual deployment.

  • Built-in Replication supporting cloud storage

    Built-in Replication supporting cloud storage

    Replicate image files with the built-in replication feature. Safeguard your data by replicating to one or more of the following targets,  local storage, network shares, FTP, FTPS, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, Azure Storage, Google Drive and Dropbox.
