Key Features of Appliance Backup with Cloud

GCAD BaaS Appliance Cloud Vault 760x420

  • Data Backup – File and folder backup for servers, desktops, laptops
  • Image and File Replication – Replication of files, folders and server images to a secondary appliance, our linked cloud, or AWS S3
  • Physical and Virtual Machines – Enable server-level protection for applications served by physical machines as well as VMs from either VMware and Hyper-V virtual environments
  • Cloud Boot – Spin up replicated VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines in our linked cloud, and configure them to be accessed directly from the cloud for a period of up to 30 days after a disaster (some flexibility in exceptional circumstances). This ensures the client can continue working while making necessary arrangements to recover their on-site environments
  • Rapid AWS Recovery – Customers replicating to AWS have the option to restore backed-up virtualized systems directly to their own AWS EC2 compute environment
  • Granular SharePoint Recovery with Kroll Ontrack – Granular file search and recovery, where the client is in possession of an active Kroll Ontrack license
  • Cloud-to-Cloud Backup (Optional Add-on Service) – Stand-alone add-on subscription feature for direct-to-cloud backup that protects Microsoft Office 365 environments, including Exchange Online mailboxes, OneDrive for Business files, and SharePoint Online
  • Disaster Recovery Service – Preloads most recent data and configuration settings onto a replacement unit in the event of on-site appliance failure
    • Replacement unit will incur shipping, handling and setup fees
  • Hardware Refresh Service – Option to refresh appliance hardware every five years
