Enterprise scale and security for legacy and modern workloads

A unified and scalable architecture provides centrally managed backup and disaster recovery for physical and virtualized environments with disparate OSs, storage platforms, hypervisors, and business applications across data centers and remote sites to a range of backup targets including disk, tape and cloud.

Instant recovery via native application integrations

Support for mission-critical applications and databases is enabled with online extensions for business applications including Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft SQL, Oracle, SAP, SAP HANA, IBM Db2, Sybase ASE, PostgreSQL, and MySQL to provide application-aware backup and recovery.
Granular recovery is enabled with extensions which enhance the application management GUI with backup and recovery capabilities, and provide application owners with a self-service option to search and recover single items.

Backup and recovery for virtual environments

Data Protector fully integrates with VMware vSphere and MS Hyper-V virtualization platforms providing protection schemes such as local and remote snapshot backup/recovery, Power-On and Live-Migration of VMs. Other Hypervisors such as KVM and Nutanix AHV are supported and benefit from the automation/orchestration capabilities of Data Protector.
Granular recovery of VM files can be achieved for all client types, whether physical, virtual, or cloud, and is complemented by virtualization reports and predictive analytics.

Best-in class platform integrations including the cloud

Data Protector Express supports backup and restore of virtual environments and includes features such as snapshot integration, cloud, and encryption support. It offers socket based licensing to provide predictable licensing capability with no monitoring required for virtualized workloads.
Agent or agentless VM consistent backup is available based on your requirements. Agentless backup uses VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V APIs to back up multiple VMs and their VM disks in parallel and stream them to a backup device.

Automated disaster recovery

Bare metal recovery for Windows and Linux clients functionality is enables with Enhanced Automated Disaster Recovery (EADR) which allows clients and cell managers to collect relevant environment information automatically at backup time and to package the OS data and configuration files in a single large DR image.
Bare metal recovery for UNIX clients is supported with the Disk Delivery Disaster Recovery (DDDR) feature which allows Data Protector to recover faulty disk sub-system using an auxiliary disk if the client system is not available or creating a new one if the client system is online.
