ImageCenter LE: Full onsite & offsite protection with automated backup testing

Replicate backup files to local folders or network shared folders (CIFS) and offsite to any private or public Cloud location via WebDAV (HTTP/HTTPS), FTP, SFTP, Amazon S3 (requires AWSCLI) and Microsoft Azure in order to keep a copy of your backups at different locations and be better protected against disasters. 

Reduce the overall clutter of numerous backup chains by consolidating incremental files. This process reduces resource consumption and increases reliability in the restore process.

Tasks are offloaded to a dedicated system, greatly reducing resource demands on the source machine.

More than backup verification, NetJapan backup testing allows you to check the integrity of backup files and of their content by booting them as VMs automatically after creation. Ensure the “recoverability” of backup files and simplifies the Disaster Recovery Plan.

This free add-on is free and is included in the installer of both the ActiveImage Protector trial and full software package. It can also be downloaded on its own for update purposes and works only with the NetJapan ActiveImage Protector software. 

Schedule it all and let replication, consolidation and backup testing happen. Set up the notification to be informed only on task failure in order to not miss any possible glitches.

Scenario example

Local backup & offsite replication for Physical Environments

  • ActiveImage Protector is installed on two servers and is saving backup image files locally (ex. NAS or local RAID)
  • ImageCenter is installed on another server, where it automatically performs scheduled consolidation and local or offsite replication tasks for these backup image files.
  • In the event of disaster or system failure, NetJapan's ImageBoot can be used to instantly boot an ActiveImage Protector backup file as a fully-functional temporary replacement machine, without requiring a lengthy P2V conversion.

Installation recommendation

Install ImageCenter LE on any machine on the network, or even on several machines on the network.

ImageBoot: Instant failover, backup testing & creation of test environments

Boot any point-in-time backup image (full or incremental) as a virtual machine in an instant and use it as replacement emergency machine in case of disaster. Eliminate business downtime caused by lengthy physical to virtual conversions or restore processes.

Test software updates and upgrades prior to deployment and without risking the live environment.

Tasks are offloaded to a dedicated system, eliminating resource demands on the source machine.

Live test of backup files and application of Disaster Recovery plans has never been so easy and fast. Uses virtualisation technology to boot backup files as VMs and check the integrity of those backup files and of their content in minutes.

Supports VMware WorkStation, VMware Player, VMware Player Pro, Microsoft Hyper-V, Windows Client Hyper-V and Oracle VirtualBox. Detailed supported hypervisors

Included in the installer part of the ActiveImage Protector trial and full software package. It can also be downloaded on its own before for update purposes; it only work with the NetJapan ActiveImage Protector solutions.

How does ImageBoot work?

Boot a replacement virtual server in minutes

Using ImageBoot is as simple as creating a virtual machine, attaching the disk and booting it up. You will have an exact replica of the crashed machine, allowing your company or clients to continue working while you take the time necessary to repair or replace the original hardware or environment.

Installation recommendation

We recommended you to install ImageBoot on a system other than the one protected by ActiveImage Protector in order to be able to use the failover functionality as fast as possible in the event of a disaster. It can also be installed on several machines on the network.

NEW ActiveVisor: Enterprise Management solution for ActiveImage Protector

ActiveVisor monitors task status, task execution, and agent status. ActiveVisor can display task execution logs for managed clients, and provides pre-emptive information such as insufficient space for efficient storage management.

Graphical representation of computers on the network, OS types, ActiveImage protected client machines, and visually draws attention to the status of task execution.

Schedules may be configured based on individual client requirements, or apply a predefined scheduled template to deploy a pattern-based backup schedule to batches of clients.

Centralised management of ActiveImage Protected clients, displays product key information, list licenced client machines and re-assigns licences as needed.

Clients can be grouped for management purposes. Groups can be rearranged, if necessary, based on changes to a systems configuration.

This free add-on is free and is included in the installer of both the ActiveImage Protector trial and full software package. It can also be downloaded on its own for update purposes and works only with the NetJapan ActiveImage Protector software. 

The Push Installer finds unprotected machines in the domain or workgroup and remotely pushes ActiveImage Protector to the client machine.

In the event of a system failure, ActiveVisor provides table views illustrating where the failure occurred, so the affected system can be recovered quickly.

Les produits développés au Japan sont de grande qualité et ActiveImage Protector n’échappe pas à la règle! Nous n’avons pas trouvé de solutions avec un meilleur ratio de déduplication/compression ! De même pour la vitesse à laquelle les sauvegardes sont réalisées… et nous avons testé pas mal d’autres solutions ! En bref, nos techniciens l’ont…

In our experience, products developed in Japan are high quality and this is also true with ActiveImage Protector. We could not find a solution with a better deduplication / compression ratio! Also the backup speed is faster then what we have seen before … and we have tested quite a lot of software! Our technicians…

“I’ve been testing NetJapan ActiveImage Protector and I’m pretty impressed with the deduplication functionality. Even when used at the medium (recommended) setting, there was a considerate space saving over Windows Server Backup (WSB). Using a Windows 2012 R2 that included two small VMs we ran some tests against WSB: WSB backed up the host and…

“I had the chance to test the pre-release of ActiveImage Protector 2016 and must say, I am really impressed with the modern dashboard and the many options it provides for running and checking backup jobs. But beyond just looks, it is apparent that NetJapan’s development team worked really hard to deliver something truly new! For…

“We had a CryptoLocker attack and NetJapan backup saved us.”

“One of our customers’s network got attacked by Cryptolocker via the proxy server despite antivirus beeing installed on the proxy server and local PCs. Unfortunately the user who opened the infected file had administrative rights and as a result, all the company relevant data got encrypted. Fortunately, we had installed ActiveImage Protector Server on this…
