ActiveImage Protector's new File Backup can back up a specific file or folder. The file backup function is equipped with a new algorithm, which checks changes in the blocks of a file.
Microsoft's VSS creates a snapshot of a file that detects the changes made to the file in its current state, can create an incremental backup of the changed blocks. The file backup function of ActiveImage Protector only backs up the changed blocks, thereby reducing significant backup storage requirements and backup time.
ActiveImage Protector's "Disk-to-Disk copy" feature provides more flexibility when migrating to SSD and large capacity hard drives. The entire disk or individual volumes can be copied using the clone function. Volumes of different disks can be combined into one new hard disk.
The function can be used with physical as well as virtual hard disks and iSCSI targets
When copying the BIOS boot system disk to an enlarged disk, if disk signature is copied, the system copied on the following OS does not boot up. Even the system copied on the other OS may boot up but go in recovery mode. In this case please restart the system.
The main advantage of using cloud storage is the increased redundancy over location-based storage. The standardized management of backups ensures the availability of extended backup storage capacities.
In addition, the use of cloud storage now enables remote workstation recovery and off-site replication of backup files, isolating backup data from a ransomware attack or for disaster recovery.
With ActiveImage Protector 2022 you have the option to save your backup on an SFTP or in a cloud directly in the backup task and without replication. Amazon S3, Azure Storage and Google Drive are supported as cloud storage for the backup destination. As an alternative to cloud redundancy, you also have the option of redundantly outsourcing your backup via SFTP.
ActiveImage Protector 2022 now supports LTO tape drives as target storage. An additional backup to tape offers further security advantages, for example against ransomware threats, since the LTO tapes are not in direct contact with network storage. However, off-site tapes can avoid physical damage.
Use Tape Manager to create a tape pool in which a group of multiple tapes is configured as a single target storage, supports tape library and virtual tape library.
ActiveImage Protector now offers a direct cloud restore function. ActiveImageProtector Cloud-Recovery restores image backups from the cloud to a virtual machine in the cloud. In order to reduce the network traffic and thereby reduce costs, a cloud recovery agent IS placed in the cloud environment.
Example for a Cloud-Recovery procedure:
