ActiveImage Protector™ is an image-based backup and recovery solution that supports a variety of physical and virtual Windows and Linux environments.

It uses the latest technology to backup your entire hard disk – including the operating system, your applications, configured settings, and data files.This solution is made to provide a fast and successful recovery. In an event of a hardware failure of your backup source machine, ActiveImage Protector™ can help you restore the system to a different physical machine or a virtual machine seamlessly.

What can the Cluster Edition Do?

Image based Backup

Backup your entire machine, including the OS, settings, data files and applications, and access rights into a single image file, so when disaster strikes, select a backup image to quickly restore for a fast and complete recovery.

Cluster Environment License

The Cluster Edition includes the same features as found in ActiveImage Protector™ Server Edition but for Clustered Environments. The Cluster Environment License is offered as a more practical licensing solution.

Fast Incremental Backup

It includes a self-developed change tracking driver that enables you to track the changes that occur on a volume incremental backup. Fast and efficient incremental backup includes only sectors that have changed from the last backup saving you both process time and storage space.

Support Cluster Environments

This edition supports cluster environments such as Windows Server Failover Clustering. Upon installation, clustered volumes are identified and handled correctly. The clustered volumes, quorums, and system volume (mirrored volume) are also properly restored and usable.

Image Files Are Accessible via iSCSI

ActiveImage Protector™ utilizes iSCSI to serve backup iSCSI targets to any local or remote iSCSI initiator for mounting backup images as local disks. Now, not only will you provide a method to recover files and folders from a backup, but also give immediate booting of a backup image attached to a virtual machine. Additionally, using VMware vMotion streamlines the recovery process by migrating live virtual machines booted from the iSCSI disk to a hypervisor in a production environment.

Windows PE & Linux based Recovery Environment

Perform faster disaster recovery and cold back-ups with ActiveImage Protector’s™ Windows PE and Linux based boot environments (AIPBE). The Windows PE based boot environment builder utilizes Microsoft ADK or AIK, and Linux CentOS.

Flexible Scheduling

Multi-triggered scheduling lets you create full and incremental backups on specific days, weeks, or months. In addition, with the included retention policy you can specify a predefined number of image sets to keep in order to reduce storage footprint. The smart feature USB Smart Detect can also detect if you have disconnected a USB drive and will resume backups one a USB drive has been reconnected.

Save Storage Space with IDDC and Smart Sector Technology

The Inline Data Deduplication Compression (IDDC) feature simultaneously compresses data and eliminates duplicate files. It also has no impact on backup time and does not require any deduplication hardware or additional software purchase. ActiveImage Protector™ also has Smart Sector™ technology which only backs up the used sectors on a disk – resulting in faster backup and smaller backup files.
