An included advanced option, IDDC has no impact on backup processing time. No additional deduplication hardware or software purchase is necessary.
Ensure full-state recovery
AActiveImage Protector™ backs up your entire hard disk including the operating system in a single operation. In the event of a hardware failure, the system can be restored to a different physical machine or a virtual machine.
Create IT Pro Edition media with user friendly wizard.
ActiveImage Protector™ IT Pro Edition includes a media creation wizard that can easily guide you through the steps to create a bootable media. You can specify which type of boot media to create,including, USB flash memory and hard drives, ISO files or optical media. Bare metal restores can be done with bootable USB flash memory or hard drives for systems that do not have optical media drives.
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.
Unlimited onsite / off-site / cloud replication
Using our free add-on ImageCenter LE prduct you can replicate backup image files to network shared folders (CIFS/Samba/SMB), off-site storage or private and public cloud locations.
