Offsite backup management with replication & consolidation

 

Backup management for ActiveImage Protector & vmGuardian with ImageCenter

ImageCenter™ LE is a stand-alone image management tool for NetJapan’s vmGuardian and ActiveImage Protector solutions.With this new management tool, replication of backup image files to local or off-site high capacity data stores can be scheduled. ImageCenter LE includes scheduling for incremental file consolidation of ActiveImage Protector backup images. In both cases, these tasks are offloaded to different systems so local system performance is minimally impacted.

 

Main features

 

Central backup management tool

Manage image files from ActiveImage Protector and vmGuardian from a central console.

solution agnostic, standalone

 

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.

3 offsite replication targets

 

Replicate offsite

Replicate backups from ActiveImage Protector and vmGuardian to a local storage, a Network Shared folder, SFTP, FTP, WebDAV or Amazon S3 target.

 

Set & Forget

Schedule it all and let replication and consolidation happen.

migration and consolidation

 

Automated consolidation of backup files

Group your continuous incremental backup files and shorten the backup chain onsite or offsite for better security.

 

ImageBootTest™

Quickly ensure that backup images can successfully boot as a virtual machine.

 

Further replication feature information

  • Schedule daily point-in-time replication tasks corresponding to a predefined number of daily backup files
  • Replication options include:
    - Replicate only incremental backup files
    - Replicate backup image files to a sub-folder created at a specified location

 

Further consolidation feature information

Consolidation tasks can be automatically executed according to a defined schedule:

  • Each tim a new backup image file is created.
  • When the number of new incremental backup image files reaches a pre-defined number.
  • Calendar based recurring scheduling.

Case scenarios

 

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 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.

Local backup & offsite replication for VMware

  1. The vmGuardian virtual appliance is installed and making regular backups of all the virtual machines running in the VMware ESXi environment.
  2. ImageCenter is installed on another server and automatically runs scheduled replication of the vmGuardian backup images to network storage, the Cloud, Amazon S3 etc. This distributes the replication workload, thereby freeing-up precious resources on the machine being backed-up.

Local backup & offsite replication for Microsoft Hyper-V

  1. ActiveImage Protector Hyper-V is installed on a Hyper-V host 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 a total system failure or catastrophic natural disaster, you can recover a crashed VM as a fully-functional machine in two minutes using our Seamless Hot Restore feature for Hyper-V.
