Dell Compellent Replay Manager is powerful snapshot consistency software that integrates with Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) to ensure the integrity of Exchange Server, SQL Server and Hyper-V data. By initiating snapshots when the I/O is quiesced, Replay Manager provides time-consistent snapshots even if the application or virtual machine (VM) is running during the process. The application-aware technology leverages Data Instant Replay, which creates space-efficient snapshots for recovery of most volumes to a server in less than 10 seconds.
How to Protect Applications and VMs with Replay Manager
- Take time-consistent snapshots of Windows application data in physical or virtualized server environments without disruption
- Protect Windows application data and VMs without full-volume clones or taking applications offline
- Prevent business-critical data from being corrupted or skipped during the backup and recovery process
- Manage multiple instances of Replay Manager through a centralized interface spanning multiple servers and applications
- Provide advanced granular SQL Server database recovery by restoring a database and applying transaction logs
- Leverage Windows PowerShell cmdlet scripting to automate Replay Manager tasks
- Pricing and product availability subject to change without notice.
