Introducing AppAssure 5 – Going beyond backup to advanced data protection
AppAssure first revolutionized data protection by unifying backup, replication and recovery in one software solution. Designed for virtual, physical and cloud environments, AppAssure’s continual data and application backups, daily data integrity, validation and flexible recovery options provide customers with unparalleled data protection. And now you can protect Linux servers too - all with the same AppAssure 5 product.

AppAssure 5 extends its core protection capabilities to address the challenges of today’s larger and more complex data environments. Specifically:
  • AppAssure’s new scalable architecture for data protection backs up and manages growing data quickly and efficiently to deliver RTOs (recovery time objectives) and RPOs (Recovery point objectives) of mere minutes.
  • Global deduplication and compression technology reduces backup time and minimizes storage footprint.
  • New AppAssure agent for Linux along with several enhancements designed to simplify management, speed deployments and increase the feature set (see AppAssure 5 datasheet for details).
