NetJapan Releases ActiveImage Protector 2018 Virtual Edition Update With HyperAgent

NetJapan, Inc., publisher of disk imaging backup, disaster recovery, and virtualization software, announces the release of ActiveImage Protector 2018 Virtual Edition Update. This update includes NetJapan's HyperAgent, a new agentless backup feature for backing up virtual machines or hosts.

Typical agent-based backup of virtual machines consume CPU and memory resources during various stages of backup. The HyperAgent, installed on a remote machine, runs the tasks, minimizing the consumption of CPU and memory resources on host and guest machines. HyperAgent on Microsoft Storage Server achieves highly efficient storage driven virtual machine backups. Backup an unlimited number of virtual machines from a single host using either agent-based or agentless methods.

ActiveImage Protector 2018 Virtual Edition Update utilizes iSCSI to serve backup images as iSCSI targets to any local or remote iSCSI initiator for attaching backup images as local disks; not only useful for recovering files and folders from a backup, but enables booting of backup images on a physical machine or a hypervisor. Additionally, using VMware vMotion can streamline the recovery process by seamlessly migrating live virtual machines booted from the iSCSI disk to a hypervisor in a production environment.

Additional Features:

  • NetJapan's Advanced VHDX Block Delta technology makes incremental backups of VMs without the need for an agent or drivers to be installed on the Hyper-V host.
  • Supports Microsoft Resilient Change Tracking for incremental backups of Hyper-V virtual machines.
  • HyperRestore restores physical or virtual machine backups to dissimilar hypervisors.
  • NetJapan's new ImageIsolate technology reduces potential malware or ransomware attacks by disconnecting access to backup storage drives after backups complete.
  • HyperStandby uses NetJapan's vStandby technology to create and maintain standby virtual machines from backup images for instant switch-over.
  • Backup multiple VMs into a single image file to gain additional benefits from NetJapan's Inline Data Deduplication Compression.
  • New scheduling options include selecting a monthly range, and then designate specific days within that range for backup tasks.
