Backup and Recovery ManagementIntelligent backups and restores utilizing a revolutionary progressive incremental backup and restore strategy, where only new and used files are backed upCentralized protection based on smart-move and smart-store technology leading to faster backups and restores with less network and storage resources needed
Virtualized Storage ManagementPolicy-based management of file backup and archiving within virtual and associated pools, rather than tethered to specific mediaTransparent data movement unhindered by long-term media restrictions, separating data and media management to their respective goals and objectives
Archive ManagementManaged archives as a separate function from backup retention policies Ability to easily protect and manage documents that need to be kept for a certain period of time
Advanced Data ReductionCombines progressive-incremental backup, source and target data deduplication, compression, and tape management to provide best-in-class data reductionReduces the costs of data storage, environmental requirements, and administration
