Dell AppAssure Backup, Replication & Recovery software can back up your Windows Servers in VMs or on physical servers. Dell AppAssure carries out an image-level, application-aware backup is recoverable in minutes using our Live Recovery™ technology.
Here’s how Dell AppAssure technology delivers better Windows 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.
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.
AppAssure 5 for Windows backup and recovery
AppAssure 5 delivers these innovative technologies to create a fast and reliable Windows backup of Windows applications and data across virtual, physical and cloud environments:
Live Recovery – to return users to productivity quickly
Restore an entire server from your Windows backup with an RTO that's near-instant, rather than hours it may currently take. Recover the use of a server to any location from as many as 288 recovery points a day (up to one every 5 minutes) for an RPO of minutes.
Recovery Assure – ensures you can recover failed Windows applications.
Recovery Assure replaces the tedium of hours-long Windows backup recoverability tests with nightly, hands-off automated application-level testing (the best kind to ensure complete recoverability) of your Microsoft Exchange, SQL and SharePoint backups. With Recovery Assure you can absolutely depend on your backups to recover properly when you need them most.
Universal Recovery – makes it easy to restore systems and data to any VM or server
Full bare-metal recoveries to dissimilar hardware and VM servers, or granular recovery of individual objects, applications, files or messages, are completed in just minutes.
TrueScale – architecture to safeguard growing data
AppAssure 5's scalable architecture for data protection leverages a dynamic, multi-core pipeline storage system that scales linearly to store and manage data efficiently and deliver RTOs and RPOs of minutes. It's so fast that it actually matches your line speeds, whether you’re networked at 1 gbit/sec or 10 gbit/sec. As a result you can schedule multiple simultaneous backups without slowing user access to applications and data.
True Global Deduplication – reduces your storage footprint
Inline deduplication and compression optimizes backups for WAN replication and eliminates redundant data across the servers on your network. This will save you a lot more data storage space than system-level deduplication (who needs multiple backup copies of the same operating system, anyway) for overall data storage savings of up to 80% over legacy approaches.
Windows Operating System:
Microsoft Windows XP
Microsoft Windows Vista
Microsoft Windows 7
Microsoft Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2008 R2

Unified Backup, Replication and Recovery
AppAssure delivers local and off-site backup, replication and disaster recovery with built-in deduplication – all in one solution, across virtual, physical and cloud platforms.
100% Reliability of Recoverability
Backups are worthless if you cannot recover from them. AppAssure automatically validates the application to guarantee that you can successfully recover it, every time. You no longer have to settle for restores that might work or should work, you can rest easy knowing that your application restore will work.

"Once we embarked on the virtualization path, our previous backup software was not up to the task. But with Dell AppAssure our data is safe and is continually backed up. We know that if we needed to restore a single file, email, or even a server, we can do it quickly and without any hassle."
"Our IT environment is constantly changing, and only Dell AppAssure has been able to keep up with it. Dell AppAssure's speed and ease of use are great, and the continuous backup makes recovery go really smoothly. We estimate that we can keep three years of continuous backups just due to Dell AppAssure's deduplication and compression technology. That's amazing!"
Dave Buzzell, Chief Information Officer The Sedona Group
"Previously our backup storage would be full after two weeks of nightly backups. Now we can fit ninety-six 15-minute snapshots, 48 hourly snapshots, 7 daily snapshots, 4 weekly snapshots, and one monthly snapshot for EVERY server, and we are using only 33% of our disk space!"
"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."
"Dell AppAssure has awesome deduplication and compression that saves so much room on our backup disk array – 60%-80% increase in free space. It was a huge surprise! We're protecting 12 servers, but only consuming 121 GB of space."
