Compare Evault Disk Backup to Tape Backups

EVault data backup software securely and efficiently backs up virtual and physical systems, either onsite or via remote backup, and seamlessly extends your IT infrastructure into the cloud. EVault backs up dynamically, so there is no need to restore from multiple incremental backups. This solution allows for an easy restoration across multiple operating systems and platforms, besides just your CMS and iSeries data, and using various EVault Plug-ins, backup and recover critical data within individual databases, mailboxes, and cluster nodes.


Solution Overview

EVault backup overview

Agents - Software installed on each protected system communicates with the target server (vault) and initiates ongoing, delta (block level change) processing of backup data.

Data Transfer - EVault deduplicates, compresses, and encrypts your data from end to end. The result? Much shorter backup windows, a dramatically reduced storage footprint, and ensured privacy.

Vault - Housed in the Datanational EVault cloud (or on your site), authenticates and accepts data received from the Agent(s) and then stores and manages the backup data in separate storage pools.

Replication- Replicate backup data to a separate site or to the EVault cloud.
