Built-In Version Control and Point-In-Time Restores
During an incremental backup, VembuHIVETM stores only the changed blocks since the latest backup, similar to versions in a version control system. Due to this and the smart metadata management that is flexible enough to expose the underlying data in multiple ways, VembuHIVETM exposes every incremental as a virtual full backup. i.e. a restoration of a backup with any time stamp, will not require merging of all the changes to a previous full backup. A point-in-time full is available for every timestamp during which an incremental backup was done. These backup versions can be instantly booted or mounted without any tedious merges.
Built-In Error Correction Techniques for Reliability
A parity file (additional redundancy) is added to each data chunk in the VembuHIVETM using advanced error correction techniques. In the event of a data corruption, the information in the parity file is used in fixing errors in the VembuHIVETM file storage. VembuHIVETM also maintains such parity information at the backup file or disk image-level, chunk- level, repository-level, and client or backup-level. These capabilities are not provided in the existing file system.
Mail/Document/File Level Restores
VembuHIVETM is intelligent enough to understand the way content is organized inside the backup data and interpret in multiple ways, irrespective of where it came from (BDR, file backup, or virtual machine backup) and thus can perform on-demand granular restores.
Deduplication for Storage Reduction
Besides storage capacity, the more data there is to manage, the greater is greater the impact and costs associated with provisioned servers, network bandwidth and even human resources to manage the infrastructure. In the face of high volume data growth, backup & restore products still need to meet recovery time and recovery point objectives (RTOs and RPOs). Vembu’s innovative, global, variable-length, block level, client & server-based deduplication technology provides for dramatic storage cost and bandwidth savings.
