Rectiphy Releases ActiveImage Protector 3.0 for Physical, Virtual and IT Support Environments
Rectiphy Corporation has released ActiveImage Protector 3.0 which adds major enhancements to its entire family of live data, sector based, backup and restore solutions for physical machines and virtual environments. AIP 3.0 includes powerful new features including Disk to Disk Copy, Bad Sector Skipping, the ability to restore image files to new virtual or physical locations and more. First released in North America in 2010, ActiveImage Protector was the first solution to include live data backups and the ability to restore individual Hyper-V VMs with patent-pending ReZoom technology.

New features and benefits in ActiveImage Protector 3.0:

  • ActiveImage Protector is the first backup solution to add support for uEFI mother boards / GPT (GUID partition tables) system and boot volumes.
  • Bad Sector Skip is a function that intelligently continues to run backup processing even when unreadable or bad sectors are found. During a restore process users can retrieve just the good sectors.
  • Architecture Intelligent Restore (AIR) provides for the streamlined restore of images in virtual to virtual (V2V), virtual to physical (V2P) and physical to physical (P2P) environments.
  • Disk to Disk Copy enables users to copy volumes and drives from one hard drive to another – even to dissimilar hardware.
  • File Consolidation and Unification Management allows multiple incremental backups (Consolidation) or incremental snap-shots along with the full base image (Unification) to be combined for long term data retention.
  • Throttling options enable users to adjust system resource usage priorities and bandwidth usage to assure backups don’t interfere with other processes.
  • Dual Recovery Environments support the latest service devices and reduced memory usage for fast bare metal recovery (BMR) and disaster recovery (DR). Windows PE 3.1 and PE 2005
  • Smart Sector Technology enhancements now enable the backup of Linux partitions from a Windows host. AIP Linux Edition supports hot imaging of a Linux server hard disk or volume.

Rectiphy’s ActiveImage Protector is an affordable, high-speed, sector-based hot imaging backup and restore solution that is optimized for virtual environments including Microsoft Hyper-V and for physical Windows and Linux machines and servers.
