When it comes to application failures and data protection, mom really doesn’t know best
Optimize your users’ application experience and simplify backup and recovery. Data Protection | Rapid Recovery, the next generation of AppAssure software, lets you protect anything — systems, apps and data — anywhere, whether it’s physical, virtual and or in the cloud. Run without restore, with zero impact on your users, as if the outage never happened. Connect to cloud simply and easily, and protect growing virtual environments automatically. Manage and configure your data protection in just a few clicks using one friendly, comprehensive GUI. With Rapid Recovery, you get one advanced, admin-friendly solution — with all capabilities included.
Archive your static data to Microsoft Azure, Amazon S3, Rackspace, or any OpenStack provider. Expand your recovery options by directly mounting archives for simple bare metal restore and file-level restore.
Use incremental-forever snapshots to capture an entire application and its relevant state, up to every 5 minutes, for complete application and system recovery with near-zero RTOs and aggressive RPOs.
Achieve easy, scalable protection for your growing virtual environment by protecting VMware VMs without disrupting applications and users.
Restore operations near-instantly with an RTO of minutes.
Continually send updates to a virtual machine that can be activated in the event there’s an issue with the primary machine.
Perform automated recovery testing and verification of backups to ensure that file systems, Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server instances you back up will be recovered.
Track changes at the block level, backing up only the data that has changed, to assure optimal performance.
