HOTBackup archiving for long term storage & compliance
If you need to retain your data at specific times of the year for archival and data retention policies, you can archive selected backups for longer durations – easily and securely.
Comprehensive Platform Support
No other backup product provides as much OS and platform coverage as HOTBackup. With support for Windows workstations, Windows Server, Linux, Mac OSX, VMware vSphere, and Hyper-V, HOTBackup has your entire network covered along with application-aware data backups from Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, Exchange and SharePoint.
Granular Data Selection
Archives can include a single file or folder, an application and its data, or an entire server or client operating system. HOTBackup intelligently selects, backs up and archives the data required to protect exactly what needs to be protected.
Backup or Archive?
Keeping data beyond the default retention period is a simple matter of selecting the backup data type to be archived and the desired custom retention period.
‘Always Secure’ Archives
Like your backups, archived data is secured both in transmission and at rest using industry standard private key encryption that utilises AES 128-bit, AES 256-bit or 448-bit Blowfish. You can decide what the backup encryption key is, ensuring only you have the key to decrypt your archives, helping you to adhere to compliance standards and ensuring absolute privacy around your data.
Archives are saved to both to the cloud and to local storage (if that’s what you need), for redundancy and immediate availability. Should an archive be needed, and your Internet connection is down, recovery can be implemented quickly and seamlessly from local storage (what we call a Speed Vault).
Centralised Monitoring and Reporting
Your backups are centrally managed and monitored from our web-based console. You can be alerted to the state of your backups, storage use, data backed up, and the success/failure of each job.
