Easy snapshot backup and recovery is here.

Despite the efficiency benefits of hardware array-based snapshots, their complexities pose IT with many challenges. Simpana® software IntelliSnap® technology integrates the complex lifecycle of snapshot management into one seamless framework. This integrated approach makes it quicker, easier and more affordable to harness the power of multiple vendor array-based snapshots, wildly accelerating backup and recovery of applications, systems, VMs and data.

Top snapshot complexities

  1. Hard to integrate with applications and VMs
  2. Data isn't indexed or searchable
  3. Fragmented snapshot management
  4. Complex recovery workflows
  5. Tough to move block snapshots to tape

We're proud pioneers of snapshot management.

"By 2016, 20% of organizations, up from 7% today, will employ only snapshot and replication techniques, abandoning traditional backup/recovery."
