  • Global Deduplication.  Is your legacy system using up storage space at an alarming rate in response to seemingly unending escalation of data storage and backup requirements?  With Global Deduplication included in your software license you’ll be able to achieve significantly higher levels of efficiency and scalability.
  • Recovery Assure™.  Need a backup solution that doesn’t slow down the entire works?  Your Microsoft Exchange®, SQL® Server and SharePoint® applications require constant backup, but at what cost?  Recovery Assure tests every backup automatically, regardless of the number of time you back up daily.  Keeping business critical applications running without impacting your production machines is just one of the benefits AppAssure has baked into their solution.
  • Live Recovery™.  Waiting for a complete system restore is frustrating and time consuming and causes critical application down time.  Live Recovery reduces RTO’s to near zero and instantly runs or resumes both virtual (VMware vSphere ESX(i), Hyper-V and XenServer) and physical servers directly from the backup file no matter the size.
