Ensure business resiliency

Take advantage of advanced, integrated, technologies that form the foundation of AppAssure software for Microsoft® Windows® and Linux®.
  • Establish virtual standby machines that can be activated quickly to restore business-critical servers.
  • Take advantage of near-instant recovery for protected virtual machines or servers with Live Recovery. You can retrieve an impacted server’s application and data directly from the backup image in the event of an outage, keeping users productive and helping you meet tight RTOs and RPOs.
  • Test and verify recovery of backups for Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server automatically with Verified Recovery. Identify data corruption early and prevent corrupted data blocks from being transferred during backup.
  • Restore backups from physical to virtual, virtual to virtual, virtual to physical, or physical to cloud with Universal Recovery. In addition, this feature allows you to carry out bare metal restores to dissimilar hardware.
  • Create a defined restore point for the appliance, or recover the appliance back to factory settings, with Rapid Appliance Self Recovery or RASR. 
  • Collect hardware, storage and operating system information, as well as a single management tab within the appliance, to manage standby VMs with new diagnostic tools such as Windows Snipping tool and enhanced support tools such as Dell DSET.
