One of the biggest challenges companies face is how to maximize business continuity and avoid business disruption following a server failure. ShadowProtect solutions provide fast and reliable disaster recovery, data protection and system migration to get servers online as quickly as possible.

ShadowProtect includes bare metal recovery to the same system, dissimilar hardware or to and from virtual environments. Protect your entire desktop or server environment including the operating system, applications like Microsoft™ Exchange and SQL, and your data.

ShadowProtect gives you the tools you need to centrally manage your point-in-time backup images and restore them in a matter of minutes. The easy-to-use management console allows you to simultaneously push install ShadowProtect to all your Windows machines from a central location and view the backup status of all protected Windows machines in your organization. In addition, ShadowProtect provides you with VirtualBoot™ technology — for failover to a virtual server — as well as a virtual converter to convert ShadowProtect backup images into virtual machines.

ShadowProtect ImageManager™ allows you to consolidate point-in-time backup images on a daily, weekly and monthly basis for simplified management. Automatic verification and re-verification tools ensure your backups are in a known good state when server recovery is necessary.

ShadowProtect and Your Recovery Time Objective

Your Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is the maximum amount of time your systems can be out of commission — from when a disruption occurs to the moment your system is available again. Minimizing your RTO helps you avoid the consequences of a break in business continuity.

The flexible recovery options in ShadowProtect allow you to improve RTO by reducing the time your systems and data are offline. ShadowProtect allows you to complete granular recovery of files and folders or full bare metal recovery in a matter of minutes. Hardware Independent Restore (HIR) technology makes it quick and easy to recover to the same system, to dissimilar hardware or to and from virtual environments. ShadowProtect’s HIR feature also makes system migration to new servers/workstation or consolidation to virtual environments a straightforward process.

ShadowProtect provides the following benefits:

  • Rapid recovery from bare metal, to dissimilar hardware or to and from virtual environments.
  • Centralized backup administration from a management console.
  • ShadowProtect ImageManager to automatically consolidate backup image files.
  • Verification and re-verification of backup images.
  • VirtualBoot technology for quick failover to a virtual server.
  • Converter tool to convert to .VHD or .VMDK.
    Automatic backup of SQL, Exchange and other critical applications.
  • Granular recovery of individual files and folders in moments.
  • Simplified migration to new Windows servers.
  • Scheduler for automatic full and incremental backups.

Backup - Fast and reliable disk-based backup that captures full, differential and incremental point-in-time backup images of your entire system.
