Whether you’re using a Windows or Linux based system on a  physical or virtual machine, Hyper-V or VMware, Actiphy’s ActiveImage Protector™ is the only solution needed to protect those systems.

  • Image file based backup (supports LVM)

    Image file based backup (supports LVM)

    ActiveImage Protector™ backs up your entire machine, including the OS, settings, data files and applications, and access rights into a single image file. When disaster strikes, select a backup image to quickly restore for a fast and complete recovery. Linux edition supports backing up and restoring LVM volumes.

  • Ensure full-state recovery

    Ensure full-state recovery

    ActiveImage Protector™ backs up your entire hard disk including the operating system in a single operation. In the event of a hardware failure, the system can be restored to a different physical machine or a virtual machine.

  • Faster and smaller backup with Smart Sector™ technology

    Faster and smaller backup with Smart Sector™ technology

    ActiveImage Protector™’s Smart Sector™ technology only backs up the used sectors on a disk, resulting in faster backup and smaller backup files.

  • Save storage space with IDDC

    Save storage space with IDDC

    Our Inline Data Deduplication Compression (IDDC) feature eliminates duplicate data while simultaneously compressing it, resulting in a significant reduction in backup storage requirements. An included advanced option, IDDC has no impact on backup processing time. No additional deduplication hardware or software purchase is necessary.Our Inline Data Deduplication Compression (IDDC) goes beyond simple compression. By excluding redundant blocks of data, backup images are much smaller in size, reducing storage demands. Deduplication occurs during the backup process (not post-backup) and has very limited impact on backup and restore time! You do not need to purchase an optional tool or an expensive storage offering Deduplication feature. No special configuration settings or operation are required.

  • Fast Incremental Backups

    Fast Incremental Backups

    ActiveImage Protector™ includes a self developed change tracking driver that enables us to track the changes that occur on a volume incremental backups. Fast and efficient incremental backup includes only sectors that have changed from the last backuping saving you both process time and storage space.

  • Live Backup of MySQL

    Live Backup of MySQL

    ActiveImage Protector™ offers image-based backup of live MySQL databases without needing to suspend MySQL, ensure the data in the backup is consistent.

  • Cross platform Linux/Windows GUI

    Cross platform Linux/Windows GUI

    A cross platform graphical user interface that supports both Windows and Linux (X Windows) platforms. The GUI provides simple and easy access to ActiveImage Protector™ʼs features and settings across both platforms. CUI/CLI are supported.

  • Linux Based Recovery Environment

    Linux Based Recovery Environment

    Perform a disaster recovery quickly and run cold back-ups with ActiveImage Protector’s Linux based boot environment (AIPBE) on DVD or USB media. The AIPBE is built on CentOS to recognize the latest devices for use in recovery on dissimilar hardware.

  • Boot Backup Images Instantly using HyperBoot™

    Boot Backup Images Instantly using HyperBoot™

    Using our real-time virtual conversion technology, HyperBoot bypasses the lengthy, resource intensive, and cumbersome physical to virtual conversion process, and boots the backup as a virtual machine in minimal time. Changes made while running the virtual machine from a backup are saved as differential files. A proverbial “Spare Wheel” for recovery, migration testing, repair, or upgrading prior to actual deployment.
