  • Direct backup and replication source access to storage area network (SAN) storage, without impacting production ESX or ESXi hosts.
  • Compression for greater throughput and faster transmission across WAN links.

Simple and easy to use for accessibility from anywhere at any time, including the browser of an iPad.

Reliable backups and replicas with support for:Backup to Amazon

  • Live Windows based applications including Oracle, Exchange, Active Directory and MS SQL with Volume Shadow copy Service (VSS).
