FREE TOOLS: Backup Replication, Consolidation, Automated testing

ImageCenter LE: Full onsite & offsite protection with automated backup testing

Unlimited replication: onsite, offsite and to the Cloud

Replicate backup files to local folders or network shared folders (CIFS) and offsite to any private or public Cloud location via WebDAV (HTTP/HTTPS), FTP, SFTP, and Amazon S3 (requires AWSCLI) in order to keep a copy of your backups at different locations and be better protected against disasters. 

Automated backup testing

More than backup verification, NetJapan backup testing allows you to check the integrity of backup files and of their content by booting them as VMs automatically after creation. Ensure the "recoverability" of backup files and simplifies the Disaster Recovery Plan.

Consolidate backup chains onsite and offsite

Reduce the overall clutter of numerous backup chains by consolidating incremental files. This process reduces resource consumption and increases reliability in the restore process.

Included free with ActiveImage Protector

This free add-on is free and is included in the installer of both the ActiveImage Protector trial and full software package. It can also be downloaded on its own for update purposes and works only with the NetJapan ActiveImage Protector software. 

Stand-alone solution with no impact on source machine performance

Tasks are offloaded to a dedicated system, greatly reducing resource demands on the source machine.

Set & Forget

Schedule it all and let replication, consolidation and backup testing happen. Set up the notification to be informed only on task failure in order to not miss any possible glitches.

Scenario example

Local backup & offsite replication for Physical Environments

  1. ActiveImage Protector is installed on two servers and is saving backup image files locally (ex. NAS or local RAID) 
  2. ImageCenter is installed on another server, where it automatically performs scheduled consolidation and local or offsite replication tasks for these backup image files.
  3. In the event of disaster or system failure, NetJapan's ImageBoot can be used to instantly boot an ActiveImage Protector backup file as a fully-functional temporary replacement machine, without requiring a lengthy P2V conversion.

ImageBoot: Instant failover, backup testing & creation of test environments

2 minute failover

Boot any point-in-time backup image (full or incremental) as a virtual machine in an instant and use it as replacement emergency machine in case of disaster. Eliminate business downtime caused by lengthy physical to virtual conversions or restore processes.

Live test the recoverability of backup files

Live test of backup files and application of Disaster Recovery plans has never been so easy and fast. Uses virtualisation technology to boot backup files as VMs and check the integrity of those backup files and of their content in minutes.

Create test environment quickly

Test software updates and upgrades prior to deployment and without risking the live environment.

Supports free hypervisors

Supports VMware WorkStation, VMware Player, VMware Player Pro, Microsoft Hyper-V, Windows Client Hyper-V and Oracle VirtualBox. Detailed supported hypervisors

Stand-alone solution with no impact on source machine performance

Tasks are offloaded to a dedicated system, eliminating resource demands on the source machine.

Included for free with ActiveImage Protector

Included in the installer part of the ActiveImage Protector trial and full software package. It can also be downloaded on its own before for update purposes; it only work with the NetJapan ActiveImage Protector solutions.

How does ImageBoot work?

Boot a replacement virtual server in minutes

Using ImageBoot is as simple as creating a virtual machine, attaching the disk and booting it up. You will have an exact replica of the crashed machine, allowing your company or clients to continue working while you take the time necessary to repair or replace the original hardware or environment.

Download our full installers for free

ImageCenter LE and ImageBoot are included in the ActiveImage Protector solutions as explained on our feature comparison table.

You can also download these free full installers below. They will work alongside ActiveImage Protector trial or full versions.

Installation recommendation

Install ImageCenter LE and ImageBoot on any machine on the network. We recommended you to install ImageBoot on a system other than the one protected by ActiveImage Protector in order to be able to use the failover functionality as fast as possible in the event of a disaster.

Both ImageCenter LE and ImageBoot can also be installed on several machines on the network.
