Dell Software has unveiled AppAssure 5.4, the latest version of its backup, replication and disaster recovery software solution.
The company said AppAssure 5.4 features upgrades designed to improve replication, optimize performance and reporting, and broaden platform support, delivering a simplified user experience that meets the modern data protection needs of both customers and managed service providers (MSPs).
Dell Software said replication enhancements give more control and flexibility when architecting their data protection environment. AppAssure 5.4 features multi-target and multi-hop replication capabilities, allowing users to replicate backup data from a single AppAssure core server to multiple target servers.
AppAssure 5.4 features a new graphical user interface that provides access to the most commonly used areas of the product. The new release also offers dynamic deduplication cache sizing, which simplifies the configuration process and guarantees optimal performance by automatically selecting the ideal dedupe cache size based on available memory.
In addition, AppAssure 5.4 delivers support for a range of critical systems including VMware ESX 5.5, Oracle VirtualBox, UEFI, RHEL 6.5, and CentOS 6.5.
Dell Software said AppAssure 5.4 empowers MSPs to manage customers’ backup environments with replication, reporting and management enhancements. Dell Software now offers a variety of sales tools and training materials tailored specifically for the MSP community.
Srinidhi Vardarajan, general manager, Data Protection, Dell Software, said: “Modern data protection is about ensuring that critical data and applications can be recovered in the event of an outage or corruption. Prolonged downtime simply isn’t acceptable. With AppAssure, users can protect data continuously, move data anywhere, and, when the time comes, recover everything and recover it quickly.”
