Syncsort has announced enhancements to its DPX software to make backup and disaster recovery (DR) simpler, faster and more efficient across physical, virtual and cloud environments.
The new release expands Bare Metal Recovery (BMR) and virtualization capabilities and extends OS, application and NetApp platform support that combines with NetApp ONTAP-based disk storage to create a complete data protection and disaster recovery solution for any storage environment.
Highlights of the new release include:
- Multiple enhancements to Windows BMR that save time and money by making the BMR recovery process even more simple and providing more flexible recovery options for users.
- Several virtualization enhancements that increase flexibility when recovering virtual server backups to VMware, increase efficiency using thin provisioning to allocate disk space for VMs and bolstering ease of use by eliminating the need for post-recovery configuration changes.
- Extended application support capabilities for high speed backups and near instant recovery to Microsoft Exchange 2013 and Microsoft SharePoint 2013 and file-level data protection for Lotus Notes on DB2 v10.1 and SAP running on Oracle in AIX, Windows and Linux.
- DPX support for NetApp vFiler – increasing efficiency and flexibility in creating virtual landing zones for DPX backups, which is a useful feature for service providers.
DPX also includes Syncsort's Copy Data Management capabilities that use DPX Instant Access virtual volume mapping functionality to dramatically reduce the amount of duplicate data organizations need to maintain.
