Hardware array-based snapshots have become the modern method for enhancing application RPO's and RTO's. However, native array snapshot tools have varying degrees of functionality, automation and application awareness. Simpana IntelliSnap combines deep application awareness with the industry's broadest storage array compatibility matrix to consolidate snapshot based protection and rapid recovery of applications, systems, VMs and data.
Combine the power of heterogeneous hardware snapshots as part of a modern approach to backup and application recovery with other aspects of Simpana software's holistic data management capabilities such as, deduplication, archiving, reporting, indexing, replication, or easily deploy snapshot management as a lightweight, standalone solution with IntelliSnap Recovery Manager and upgrade to the full Simpana platform when you are ready.
Benefits of Snapshot Management
- Recover applications faster to increase business uptime
- Maximize hardware investments with centralized snapshot management across the industry's broadest storage array compatibility matrix
- Increase operational efficiency by eliminating complex scripting and multiple snapshot products
- Reduce risk by eliminating the backup window
"By 2015, at least 25% of large enterprises will have given up on conventional backup/recovery software, and will employ snapshot and replication techniques instead."
