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
- Hard to integrate with applications and VMs
- Data isn't indexed or searchable
- Fragmented snapshot management
- Complex recovery workflows
- 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."

Meet IntelliSnap® technology, the industry's widest snapshot support.
Simpana software IntelliSnap technology can be deployed as a lightweight, standalone solution for automating snapshot management and application-aware recovery across multiple storage arrays and physical or virtual servers. It unifies the management of hardware snapshots through a single console to improve efficiency and unleash the true potential of snapshots.
Make it easier.
Effortlessly integrate snapshots
with applications and VMs.
Say goodbye to complex scripting for every disk vendor. Simpana IntelliSnap technology simplifies the integration of array snapshots with applications and VMs by providing pre-built support for a wide range of applications, operating systems and hypervisors. This approach simplifies management while improving reliability.
- No more creating/maintaining various complex scripts for each disk vendor and application.
- Eliminate legacy, server-based backups with integrated backup from snapshots.
Make it integrated.
Unify snapshots, backup and recovery environments.
Simpana IntelliSnap technology integrates the complex lifecycle of snapshot management into a single, seamless framework. Multiple disk array vendors are supported from the same platform, to unify operations.
- Protect, index and catalog data on primary storage, then move to secondary disk, tape or cloud as needed based on user-defined policies.
- Recovery of data from any tier is seamless and operationally identical.
Make it valuable.
Get more value from your existing snapshot technology.
Simpana IntelliSnap technology maximizes the value of your existing snapshot investment by simplifying management, speeding recovery and making snapshots searchable. You can automatically create long-term snapshot backups and archives from snapshots using commodity disk, cloud or tape, without the need for traditional backup, potentially eliminating legacy backup solutions.
- Gain insight into your data through detailed reporting.
- Use snapshot clones to derive value beyond data protection, such as efficient application test/dev and business analytics.
