Watch a short video below examining some of the key reasons why Data Backup and Disaster Recovery has become a huge importance in this day and age of technology.
IS&T BDR devices now come standard with Solid State OS Drives for improved speed and reliability, Hot-Swappable Drive Bays for easy scalability, and RAID for added redundancy.
Backups can be virtualized locally to the BDR device or to the secure IS&T cloud, instantly, with the click of a button. This unique feature is a key component to intelligent business continuity. Should a local disaster occur, business can continue as usual in the IS&T cloud.
IS&T BDR's now support VMware as an appliance platform. Our Intelligent Business Continuity solution can now be purchased as a virtual appliance on virtual infrastructure in addition to our physical hardware.
Using image-based backup allows the BDR to take an image (ie: picture) of an entire system, not simply individual files or applications. This contributes to a superior Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and the ability to boot virtual machines. Image-based backup is an integral component of Intelligent Business Continuity.
All data is protected by AES 256 encryption both in transit and in the cloud. Additionally, users have the option to encrypt data locally, and pass phrases can be specified per appliance or per protected machine to meet compliance regulations.
Power is nothing without control, and the IS&T BDR offers a meticulously refined toolkit for device and account management. A single pane of glass is used to configure devices, schedule backup reports, monitor off-site amounts, set up alerts and more.
All data sent off-site is compressed using LZMA2 compression to ensure maximum efficiency and provide a stellar user experience even in low bandwidth and high network traffic environments.
eDiscovery gives IS&T BDR users the ability to perform granular recoveries from Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. Powered by Ontrack® PowerControls™ from industry leader Kroll Ontrack, eDiscovery makes it easy to search documents, emails and attachments by keyword and restore exactly what you need.
IS&T BDRs utilize the image-based ShadowSnap™ agent, developed in conjunction with StorageCraft. ShadowSnap is based on the premise of dual backup engines: application-aware VSS by default, with the engine as a safety net. ShadowSnap is particularly useful in performing bare metal restores as it supports dissimilar hardware.
AgentSync is the IS&T BDRs proprietary technology for quickly and efficiently transferring files to and from the cloud. It allows users to prioritize server backup order, pipeline recovery points, and set up multiple agents to sync off-site simultaneously. This provides greater data integrity, reduces network traffic, and keeps off-site backups up to date.
IS&T BDR supports Microsoft Windows operating systems for almost any Windows PC or server that is still production today. Support currently ranges from Windows 2000 to Windows 8 and Server 2012. Granular recovery is also available for Exchange and Sharepoint servers.
Restore full machines quickly and efficiently through our USB Bare Metal Restore process. Go from physical machines to virtual (P2V) or vice versa with our unique dissimilar hardware tool that allows for maximum flexibility when restoring. No drives or cables needed as the system can run completely over the user’s network. IS&T BDR uses the latest networking technology to increase speed and performance.
