Hyper-V Data Protection Enhancements

As organizations increasingly embrace virtualization, Asigra Cloud Backup continues to expand its features to enable more comprehensive data protection in virtual machine environments. In Asigra Cloud Backup Version 13.1, we offer a number of data protection enhancements for Microsoft Hyper-V, including incremental backup for virtual machines in both standalone and cluster Hyper-V server configurations, enabling faster backup by retrieving only changed blocks in VMs from one backup session to another.

New Support Matrices

Asigra Cloud Backup Version 13.1 also features a number of new support matrix additions and updates including VMware 6.0, Windows 10, backup and data restore on Oracle 12c, backup for Oracle Database on Solaris 11, and bare metal restore for the Windows 2012 R2 Server core. These new capabilities can help solution providers expand their total addressable market by enabling new Backup-as-a-Service offerings for new data sources while meeting existing customer reqirements.

Support for Oracle Linux

Version 13.1 supports Oracle Linux as an installation platform for DS-System, Backup Lifecycle Management (BLM) Archiver, and Remote Virtual Disaster Recovery (RVDR).

Configurable Geo-location APIs for Flexibility in Endpoint Data Protection

A key security feature for endpoint data protection is the ability to geo-locate and remotely wipe lost or stolen devices. In Asigra Cloud Backup Version 13.1, solution providers now can self-configure the geo-location capabilities within the DS-NOC, Asigra’s web-based management console, for either Google or Skyhook for geo-location APIs and Google Maps or HERE Maps for geographic positioning and location data.

New on-premise Exchange data protection with Exchange Web Services (EWS) Backup Set

For Microsoft Exchange 2013 and higher, Asigra recommends using the new EWS backup set (included in Asigra Cloud Backup Versions 13.1) for item-level backup and recovery with on-premise Exchange deployments.
