  • Manage data across physical & virtual environments with a single, integrated solution.
  • Protect hundreds of VMs in minutes with IntelliSnap® technology for heterogeneous management of array-based hardware snapshots.
  • Leverage enterprise class, global deduplication and features like Changed Block Tracking (CBT) to enable smart protection strategies like incremental forever to limit the impact of backups on production infrastructure, using fewer hardware resources than traditional backup or point products.
  • Scale to protect thousands of VMs across the enterprise using commodity servers and storage.
  • Application integrated protection ensures application consistency and rapid application recovery within VMs including granular recovery for certain applications.
  • Recover VMs instantly with new “Live Recovery” options, including Live Browse, Live File Restore and Live VM Restore.


  • Reduce VM sprawl, increase VM platform utilization and ultimately save money on extra server, storage and networking hardware.


  • Provide self-service admin management access for VM provisioning, backup, and recovery with customizable configuration limits, expiration dates, and much more.
  • Normalize management of virtual machines across multiple VM and cloud platforms (Hyper-V, VMware and AWS) with a web-based portal.
  • Achieve operational excellence with custom reporting options that deliver summary, dashboard, and instrumentation level reporting on the entire environment, not just the backups.
  • Leave no VM unprotected with automated VM discovery.
  • Deliver IT as a service with chargeback reporting, workflow automation and self-service access.


  • Bring DR to workloads that have never had it before by eliminating the need for identical hardware.
  • Reduce the complexity of extending workloads to cloud infrastructure using DASH Copy, Virtualize Me, and Workflow Automation.
  • Accelerate DR and DR testing with automated, replicated VM backups to cloud.
