Modern Data Protection Optimized for VMware Environments
As deployments of VMware environments grow in scope and scale, the ability to protect and manage data used by virtualized applications is emerging as a key challenge in the modern data center. With applications that can float over the physical sever layer to provide just in time resource allocation – you can no longer rely on a backup product that attempts to backup data in the same scripted place and stream it across a network every night. The virtual data center is simply not built for this type of approach.
Simpana® 9 changes the game entirely when it comes to data protection and data management within a VMware deployment. With the capability to protect hundreds of virtual machines in minutes, virtual machine auto-protection, and the scalability to protect thousands of virtual machines, Simpana® virtual server backup software sets a new standard for virtual server data protection, with the capability to:
- Protect hundreds of virtual machines in minutes
- Scale seamlessly to provide end-to-end protection for thousands of virtual machines
- Automatically discover and protect virtual machines
- Granular file and full VM recovery
- Capture multiple recovery points in a day with minimal production impact
- Create fast secondary and DR copies using embedded deduplication
