"Dell AppAssure backup requires a fraction of the care and feeding of other products. If the auditors walked in tomorrow, I am confident that we can immediately demonstrate that we can recover in our mandated time."

Better technology means better data protection
Advantages of AppAssure data protection
What makes Dell AppAssure software stand above legacy backup software and reduced-function virtual machine-only solutions?
We roll proven image-level backup, replication and recovery technology into a unified solution.
We protect seamlessly across Windows and Linux OSs and move easily among physical, virtual and cloud environments.
And, we build in more functionality in every license.
Here’s how Dell AppAssure technology delivers better better Windows backup and Linux backup protection:
Highly scaleable, highly efficient backup.AppAssure scales for speed by automatically ‘turning on’ as many AppAssure core CPUs as are needed to handle workload peaks. It also scales for data capacity with ultra-efficient block-level incremental-forever backups that are data-deduplicated across all the servers on your network. This results in:
Line-speed user access to applications. Feel free to schedule as many simultaneous backups as you like even during peak work hours because backup jobs never get in the way of full-speed production environments, even if your network runs at 10 gbit/sec.
More efficient disk storage. Dell AppAssure keeps your storage footprint small whether your storage environment is small or large. And, Exabyte-level scalability easily meets the needs of Big Data environments.
Rapid recovery from nearly any point in time. Achieve near-zero application recovery time objectives (RTO). Choose to recover from any one of up to 288 recovery points a day for Windows to practically eliminate the potential for data loss.
Flexible recovery options from a single backup pass.
Comprehensive data off-siting, fail-over, fail-back. Dell AppAssure builds in WAN-optimized, deduplication-aware replication for off-siting backup data to public or private clouds. Data seeding is available for sites with slow or highly latent links. A virtual standby function creates and maintains an up-to-date virtual standby clone of a production server as of the last snapshot. Fail-Over and Fail-Back allows your secondary site or a managed service provider site to recover instances from replicated machines and immediately commence protection on the failed-over machines, and then fail back when the problem is solved.
Unified user interface. Protect a few or a few thousand machines from any Web browser. AppAssure 5 features a new web-based management console that is compatible with industry-standard browsers on laptops, tablets and notebooks. You can manage your data protection responsibilities and solve problems from any location with an Internet connection.
