What is ActiveImage Protector™ ?

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 based backup

    Image based backup

    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.

  • 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.

  • Bootability check by BootCheck™ 

    Bootability check by BootCheck™ 

    BootCheck™ provides confidence that your backup images are bootable from local or remote Hyper-V hosts. BootCheck™ confirms bootability of a virtual machine directly from a backup image file.

  • Windows PE and Linux based recovery environments

    Windows PE and Linux based recovery environments

    Perform faster disaster recovery and cold back-ups with ActiveImage Protector’s™ Windows PE and Linux based boot environments (AIPBE). The Windows PE based boot environment builder utilizes Microsoft ADK or AIK, and Linux CentOS. 

  • Access image files via iSCSI

    Access image files via iSCSI

    ActiveImage Protector™ utilizes iSCSI to serve backup iSCSI targets to any local or remote iSCSI initiator for mounting backup images as local disks; not only providing a method to recover files and folders from a backup, but provides immediate booting of a backup image attached to a virtual machine. Additionally, using VMware vMotion streamlines the recovery process by migrating live virtual machines booted from the iSCSI disk to a hypervisor in a production environment.

  • 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.

  • Centralized Management Console “ActiveVisor™”

    Centralized Management Console “ActiveVisor™”

    ActiveVisor™ monitors and manages ActiveImage Protector™ agents allowing IT administrators to maintain system continuity. By collecting information from distributed agents over the network, ActiveVisor™ provides a visual representation of overall system protection, sends email notifications of client backup status, monitors storage space availability of devices, and administers deployment of agents, schedules, and tasks. System administrators save time, and reduce costs by managing ActiveImage Protector™ agent settings providing peace of mind that continuous and reliable backups are performed.
