Efficiently manage your backup and DR storage costs by keeping the most recent or important backups on the local appliance, with the remainder archived to the GridStor cloud. Local and replication retention policies are managed separately allowing more effective use of your local and offsite appliance storage allocation.
For Windows and Linux machines, Administrators can right-click backups and choose any version of a machine’s backup to be booted and run directly in the GridStor cloud, with RDP access to help businesses minimize downtime.
The DR cloud supports an agentless approach to backing up and recovering VMware and Hyper-V environments. Backup physical machines and recover them to existing hypervisors, or recover VMs as physical machines (P2V and V2P recovery support). Set policies to automatically protect newly created VMs to save additional time, money, and reduce risk of downtime due to human error.
Windows and Linux systems that have been backed up onto an on-premise GridStor appliance (Cloud Failover series) can be run directly on the appliance by simply right-clicking a backup and selecting “boot.” In a matter of minutes, administrators will have VNC access to a live running machine. Once ready, the machine(s) can be powered off, backed up and recovered to production environments, including recovery to an existing vSphere environment.
Our cloud failover service guarantees that you can bring any system back online in our cloud in 15 minutes or less from from time of the disaster.
Appliance backup settings and schedules as well as recoveries can be accessed over the WAN from a central management console or limited to LAN/VPN access for environments requiring greater security.
