Today, most enterprise infrastructures are virtual. Common virtualization platforms on the market are VMWare’s vSphere and Microsoft’s Hyper-V.
ETERNAL technology enables broad integration for effective backup of these infrastructures and interesting recovery capabilities.
- Block-level incremental forever – While non-virtual environments support file-level resolution for backups, in virtual environments the resolution is block-level. The integration with the virtual platform provides TSM the information about the blocks that have changed and are needed for recovery. This way, the advantages of progressive incremental forever are even more pronounced.
- Agentless file-level restore – In a virtual environment, backup and restore can be performed without installing an agent.
- Instant access recovery for the entire VM and for a single drive.
- Granular application item-level recovery for MS-SQL and MS-Exchange.
