FLASHBACK

Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery & DRAAS

Your customers rely on you for your products and services, and your reliability is only as good as when you are at your weakest – recovering from a disaster. A good business continuity plan rests on a good disaster recovery strategy. It should include plans to restore essential services, recover essential functions and resources, and it should also incorporate a contingency plan, just in case restoration of business is delayed, or worse, your business is going to be permanently altered. A key element to all of the above is quick and reliable access to key data – deciding which orders, which clients, which regions, which channels and which resources need to be prioritized.

Keep your business data protected

Idealstor’s hybrid business continuity solution can protect your business from downtime, even if your physical hardware has been destroyed.

Be operational, even during a disaster

Idealstor’s Instant Virtualization technology virtualizes systems either locally on the Idealstor appliance or remotely in the cloud — within seconds. Businesses can operate as usual, and have the time and resources to fix server issues without compromising any data, or incurring any downtime.

Have peace of mind with demonstrated recoverability

How often has your Backup product reported a successful backup only to find out at the time of recovery that it was not the case. With automated Screenshot Verification, you can be rest assured that every backup has been tested and verified. Not only is the integrity of a backup checked, but it is launched as a virtual machine in a test environment to verify it can be booted in case of a disaster and a screenshot of the log-in screen is sent to your e-mail as verification.

Hybrid Cloud Hybrid Cloud Platform offers the most reliable and efficient way to back up data securely and ensure that it is recoverable in any disaster scenario. On-premise servers are protected on the backup appliances and mirrored automatically to the Cloud, improving fault tolerance while reducing the reliance on bandwidth speed.
Chain Independent Incrementals All incremental backups create a virtual full backup where one backup is not dependent on the other. This helps with not having to re-seed the cloud every time an incremental backup gets corrupted and bad backups that follow that incremental.
Backup Explorer Instantly compare two recovery points to see what has been modified, created, or deleted between any two backups.
Instant Virtualization Instant Virtualization allows backups of on premise servers to be virtualized and started either locally on the Backup appliance itself or remotely in secure cloud, in mere seconds.
End-to-End Encryption All data is protected by AES 256 encryption both in transit and in the cloud. Option to encrypt data locally, and pass phrases can be specified per appliance or per protected machine to meet compliance regulations.
Advanced Storage Technology Extensive use of ZFS locally and in the cloud for maximum data integrity protection, storage efficiencies, and performance. The features of ZFS include protection against data corruption, support for high storage capacities, efficient data compression, integration of the concepts of filesystem and volume management, snapshots and copy-on-write clones, continuous integrity checking and automatic repair, and RAID-Z.
Automated Backup verification with screenshots Gives you complete peace of mind by automatically validating backup integrity. Following backups, the solution virtualizes the backups on the appliance, boots them up to verify recoverability and to detect any backup concerns. These screenshots are then sent via e-mail to the
administrator.
File Sync and Share Feature allows to create a locally-hosted on premise enterprise file sync and share solution, served on appliance, for no additional cost. It’s more secure, and it is fast because it is local, which is then replicated to the cloud for complete protection.
Multiple Restore Options From granular file recovery to launching your recovery point as a Virtual machine in 6 seconds.

    Restore files or folders
    Boot the backup as a Virtual machine locally or in the cloud
    Boot the backup in a ESX environment
    Upload the restore point to a ESX host
    Bare metal restore to similar or different hardware
    Diskless restore
    Export recover point as VMDK or VHD
Broad Operating System Support Idealstor appliances support both Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems.

Capabilities Benefits
Hybrid Cloud with DRaaS Idealstor utilizes a Hybrid Cloud technology to improve redundancy and give administrators greater protection for their systems and data. The Idealstor Flashback appliance provides data protection for both workstations and servers locally. From there it is automatically and securely transmitted to the Cloud, which provides remote data protection and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). All with a solution that can be installed and protecting servers in minutes.
Multiple Virtualization Options Should a business experience a server failure, the protected system can be virtualized instantly on the Idealstor Appliance. The advanced web interface allows for dynamic configuration of CPU, memory, and networking resources. With the system virtualized, the business can operate “business as usual” until it has the time to fix its server issue, without compromising any data or incurring any downtime. Idealstor protects systems from site-wide outages using instant off-site virtualization. In the event of a local disaster such as a fire or flood, the entire network can be recreated in our secure Cloud in a matter of minutes. Secure connections are provided to employees and a business can resume normal operations. Idealstor Flashback also supports Hybrid Virtualization technology, initializing a virtual machine (VM) in our secure Cloud, then automatically connecting it to the local network through the Idealstor Appliance using a secure VPN tunnel.
Agentless and Agent-based Backup Idealstor Flashback supports both physical and virtual systems through agentless and agent-based backup. Agentless protection enables fast and easy pairing of any number of VMware systems or templates. Agent-based protection provides scalable backup for all of your physical devices.
Chain Independent Incrementals Chain independent Technology eliminates the problem of broken backup chains—the place where most issues arise in the backup process. You have the freedom to change retention and delete recovery points without resetting the chain or having to take a new base image. Since each backup is always in a fully constructed state, and is a fully bootable virtual machine, there is no need for complex, time-consuming conversion processes before performing a restore. Chain independent Technology also makes a 5-minute backup frequency possible.
End-to-End Encryption All data is protected by AES-256 encryption both in transit and in the cloud. Users have the option to encrypt data locally, and passphrases can be specified per appliance or per protected machine.
Screenshot Verified Backup No more guessing if your backup is working properly. To verify a successful backup, the appliance boots a backup locally as a virtual machine, capturing an image of the login page to give you visual proof that your data has been successfully backed up. Reduce scheduled downtime, Offload backup and DR testing from production servers, and attain automated routine (even hourly) backup verification to enable monitoring of a fleet of Flashback appliances possible.
Image-Based Backup Flashback uses image-based backups to capture a complete picture of a protected workstation or server. Advantages include quick full system restores, easy recovery of individual files, bare metal restore (BMR) capability, and the ability to boot individual backups as virtual machines. Application-aware VSS snapshots are used by default with Windows. Go from physical machines to virtual (P2V) or vice versa with our unique dissimilar hardware tool that allows for maximum flexibility when restoring.
NAS, iSCSI, sync and share on Flashback Flashback offers a feature rich enterprise file sync and share utility on Flashback. Users can access files on Flashback from anywhere using desktop or mobile clients and synchronize changes to keep files up to date, all while storing in their local infrastructure rather than relying on a public cloud. Provision capacity on the Flashback appliance to serve as shared NAS file storage (NFS and CIFS), or as IP block storage with iSCSI. Apply a snapshot schedule and protect in the Idealstor Cloud.
eDiscovery Software eDiscovery gives Flashback users the ability to search keywords within their backup data, emails, and attachments and review in an easy to read format. Powered by the industry-leading Kroll Ontrack software, it is compatible with dozens of file formats and systems, including Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, and SQL.
File Explorer Identify file and application changes between any two backup points, recovering files and applications directly from the interface with almost no information about when they were lost or even where on the machine they resided. Because all backups are fully constructed, in a matter of seconds you can simultaneously mount points and see all files broken down with an easy to read file tree.
