AppAssure Software Launches AppAssure V4.7 Backup and Replication Software

Continues Innovations in Unified Backup and Replication for Both Virtual and Physical Environments; Enhances Support for VMware vSphere 5 Direct Support

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - Nov 11, 2011) - AppAssure Software, the global leader and award-winning provider of unified backup and replication software for virtual, physical and cloud environments, today introduced the latest version of the company's backup and replication software. The new AppAssure v4.7 release continues to deliver the industry's fastest backup and recovery of virtual servers including VMware, Hyper-V and XenServer as well as physical servers.

The new AppAssure v4.7 release includes:

  • VMware vSphere/ESXi direct export support: Builds a virtual standby server on an affordable ESXi host.
  • Multi-hypervisor support: Continued leading-edge backup and replication support for VMware, Hyper-V and XenServer.
  • Enhancements to Assured Recovery™ technology: Volume integrity check performs an automatic verification of all volumes and data blocks in order to verify the integrity of the data which assures complete recoverability of every backup in both virtual and physical environments. Version 4.7 examines the logical sequence of each volume including the volume's master file table, verifies the indexes for each directory on the volume, and verifies each file and directory's security descriptors so if any inconsistencies are found, users are alerted immediately.
  • Recovery console enhancement: Supports 32- and 64-bit boot disks and USB thumb drive to boot from when performing a bare-metal restore to any kind of server or dissimilar hardware.
  • SMTP alerting enhancement: Sends out email alerts from any external SMTP server in the event of an email server failure.
  • Enhanced 64-bit MS Exchange/Outlook 2010 support: Granular recovery of object-level items such as messages using Outlook 2010, 64-bit version.

In addition, AppAssure v4.7 software also includes AppAssure's innovative and groundbreaking backup and recovery technologies:

  • Live Recovery- instant recovery technology with aggressive, near-zero RTO and RPO.
  • Assured Recovery- automatic recovery testing and verification technology that sets a new standard in data protection by assuring the recoverability of every backup in virtual and physical environments.
  • Universal Recovery- cross-platform recovery that restores data volumes anywhere to anywhere, from virtual to physical, physical to virtual, virtual to virtual or physical to physical (V2P, P2V, V2V or P2P, including bare-metal recovery to dissimilar hardware); includes granular object level recovery with application-item and file-level recovery.

"We went from almost one end of the continuum to the other," said Rob Tyrrell, IT Manager at Ocean Nutrition Canada about the difference in using his old solution to using AppAssure. "With AppAssure we now have no backup window; our RTO and RPO are now measured in minutes, not days. Basically, AppAssure's v4.7 software has moved the company to the next step in protecting our information infrastructure."

Brian Gibson, Systems Administrator at Information Management Services, said, "AppAssure v4.7 software offers ease-of-use and simplicity which are spectacular. The best part is the consistency verification of the Microsoft Exchange data and I can always tell that my Microsoft Exchange server is in good health. And I have even done granular recoveries of single messages using AppAssure and it is VERY easy and fast."

"The new release of AppAssure v4.7 software helps our customers and partners protect their data and applications running in virtual and physical servers using the fastest backup and replication technology in the industry," said Najaf Husain, AppAssure's President and CEO. "Today's announcement honors our commitment to the AppAssure community with ongoing innovations that break barriers in backup and recovery."
