NetJapan Backup and recovery

"Only One Technology"

The fact is, disasters can and do happen all of the time. Thankfully, you can rely on NetJapan to protect your company’s data and IT infrastructure from any type of disaster, large or small. 

Under the “only one technology” philosophy, NetJapan focuses on developing and offering innovative backup and disaster recovery solutions for complete protection of your computer systems and data:

  • One technology for Windows and Linux, on physical and virtual platforms: ActiveImage Protector, our proprietary backup software solution, is a high-speed backup and disaster recovery solution that can significantly reduce backup processing time even when dealing with very large amounts of data. 
  • One on-the-fly data deduplication technology: We took a different approach when developing our deduplication technology. We didn’t want backup processing time to escalate uncontrollably as can be the case for some of our competitors' products. Instead, NetJapan's Inline Data Deduplication and Compression (IDDC) allows users to efficiently deduplicate data and compress image files during (not after!) the backup process, with significantly better results.
  • One-click virtualisation: This feature in ActiveImage Protector simplifies migration and virtualisation while also reducing implementation time and costs. 
  • One instant to access all your data and entire systems during an IT-disaster: Our Instant Availability solutions let you instantly boot your entire system (physical or virtual) in only two minutes, significantly reducing your downtime and lost revenue. Traditionally any big data server would take a long time to restore, severely impacting your bottom line. NetJapan uses modern virtual environment technologies to allow you to boot your crashed machine in an instant as a replacement VM that is in the exact state of the last snapshot taken before the disaster.

NetJapan offers different methods to achieve instant availability:

  • For physical or virtual Windows productive machines: vStandby creates and maintains a dormant replica of your machine which can be booted in seconds in the event of a system crash or failure, ensuring instant availability of both the system and data.
  • For Microsoft Hyper-V: NetJapan Seamless Hot Restore (SHR) feature can quickly start a fully functional replacement VM from an ActiveImage Protector Hyper-V backup image while simultaneously restoring the same VM in the Hyper-V environment, providing true continuity for data access and productivity.
  • For ActiveImage Protector: In 2015 NetJapan launched ImageBoot, a free DisasterReady solution that bypasses lengthy recovery times by booting your full or incremental ActiveImage Protector backups as a temporary replacement VM in as little as two minutes in either VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V.
  • One Instant Availability solution independent of your backup solution: vStandby Server and vStandby Desktop work alongside any pre-existing backup and disaster recovery solution. In today’s competitive market, we believe that any business, big or small, should be able to afford technology that can reduce downtime to near-zero, that is simple to use and is without any limitations.
