Physical Backup

Incremental Backups

Perform incremental backups to improve speed and free up storage space. The solution runs a full backup only once. For subsequent recovery points, only those data volumes that have been changed since the last backup cycle (increments) are copied.

Flexible Retention

Configure flexible recovery point rotation using the grandfather-father-son (GFS) scheme to optimize storage space and ensure no data loss. The scheme enables you to store recovery points more effectively, rotating them on a daily, monthly or yearly basis. Set retention for each workflow, specifying how many points to retain and for how long.

Secure Storage

Choose whether to store backups and their copies in a local repository, in a public cloud, on a NAS device or on tape. Encrypt the repository or enable immutability to protect your backup data against unauthorized changes and ransomware.

Streamlined Administration

The solution offers a variety of automation features to simplify administration. Easily schedule backups with a convenient Calendar dashboard and configure policies to automatically back up those physical machines that match your criteria. You can also set pre and post-actions to add custom scripts, enable notifications, integrate third-party tools or automatically truncate log files after a successful backup.

Reliable Backups

You can perform image-based volume-level backups in the app-aware mode to ensure that data is consistent and applications can run smoothly after recovery. For this, the solution instructs applications and databases to flush data to the disk before taking a snapshot.


Agile Recovery

With reliable and robust backups, you can ensure data recovery in any scenario. Run backup malware scans to ensure that the machines and objects recovered are infection-free. Fully recover Windows and Linux physical machines to identical hardware or as VMware vSphere VMs or instantly restore individual files and application objects. Boot fully functional VMs directly from physical machine backups in seconds or migrate physical workloads to virtual environments using Cross-Platform Recovery.

Resource Optimization

Boost physical backup performance without putting an extra load on your network. Identify what’s causing bottlenecks, limit bandwidth consumption during working hours or enable Network Acceleration to speed up data transfer in busy LAN/WAN.
